Silver Manipulation is Failing – & Rickards is Wrong Once Again

UntitledJim Rickards made headlines today with an interview he did with Peter Schiff in which he claims that the gold held by the Fed is leased out several times over but is still sitting in the Fed vaults.
If that’s case, Jim, then how come the Fed won’t allow a physical audit?
If the Fed is going to perpetuate and legitimize a lie, at least show us the bars.
The Fed and the big banks who are undeniably engaged in trying to hold down the price of gold and silver on a daily basis now, are having trouble getting silver to die.   The reason:  India and China have been buying physical silver hand-over-fist: [Read more...]

The Military Occupation Of Ferguson, Missouri Is Just A Preview Of What Is Coming To America

Let’s be honest – Ferguson, Missouri is under military occupation right now, and the entire world is watching in horror as militarized police fire tear gas and rubber bullets at unarmed protesters.
Yes, the rioting and looting in Ferguson needed to be stopped.   If order had not been restored, more stores and businesses would have been destroyed.  However, there is no excuse for the brutal tactics now being employed.  At one point, police snipers were even using laser scopes to target protesters that were obviously unarmed.
As the economy falls apart and people become even more angry and even more frustrated, there will be a lot more incidents of civil unrest like we have just witnessed in Ferguson.
Sadly, this is just a preview of what is coming to all of  America.

Marshall Swing On Wild Divergence of Gold & Silver Charts: Something is About to Happen!

collapseGold & silver’s charts look wildly different now and that is extremely rare.   Something is about to happen.
A global  economic crash is coming in 2015.   It is well planned unlike the almost disaster event in 2008
Right before the crash, precious metals will drop to great depths as the banks take everything from the speculators, & flip to long positions as silver and gold skyrocket while chilling fear spreads around the globe and trillions of dollars come rushing into precious metals to find a home. 
Those who stack the metals will become wealthy and those who trust in man and man’s paper game will lose everything they have.

It’s Time to Confront Brutal Facts

You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end – which you can never afford to lose – with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.
At the risk of stating the blindingly obvious, this is hardly a ‘good news’ market. Ebola. Ukraine. Iraq. Gaza.
In a more narrowly financial sphere, the euro zone economy looks to be slowing, with Italy flirting with a triple dip recession, Portugal suffering a renewed banking crisis, and the ECB on the brink of rolling out QE.
What are the implications for global stocks?
On any fair analysis, the US market in particular is a fly in search of a windscreen.
Using Professor Robert Shiller’s cyclically adjusted price / earnings ratio for the broad US stock market, US stocks have only been more expensive than they are today on two occasions in the past 130 years: in 1929, and in 2000.
In this uniquely oppressive financial environment where the skies are darkening with the prospect of a turn in the interest rates, optimism could be fatal.

Psycho Silver

goldDespite repeated attempts to beat down silver with uncovered short-selling, so far this month the primary banks who control Comex trading (JP Morgan, Scotia, HSBC) have been unable to keep silver down.
We know they are throwing a lot of short-selling at the silver market based on the latest COT report – notwithstanding the fact that we know JP Morgan fraudulently reports its COT positions, which means JPM’s true short position is likely much larger than is being reported.

Silver Sales Strong Ahead of Thursday’s London Fix End

Physical silver bullion sales exploded at SDBullion Wednesday, hours before the London Fix price setting mechanism was set to end on August 14th.  
The London fix, which has been in place for 117 years dating back to 1897,  announced in April that the daily silver fix would end on August 14th, when Deutsche Bank, under investigation by Germany’s BaFin for market manipulation vacated its seat and was unable to find a buyer.

SDBullion trader Jennifer Linhart stated that physical silver sales were five times normal volume Wednesday, as investors scooped up bullion ahead of any market disruption the end of the fix might cause:
“The phones were ringing off the hook all day, and silver sales were about 5 times normal for the day.  We didn’t see much of any change in gold, everyone was buying silver.”  [Read more...]

Silver Derivative Shorts Prepare for “Force Majeure” Claims

We are approaching another “I told you so” moment.
Word is that just one day away from the end of the “Silver Fix” and the implementation of the new “London Silver Price” there are still no major participants and no information on how the new system works.
The plan all along was to destroy the pricing mechanism for silver! 
There is no physical silver market.  There never has been…so how can these new “London Silver Price” fixers even fake that there is any legitimacy at all in the pricing of silver?    Oh, they will try but they will fail miserably.
The TRUTH lies in a much more sinister operation yet completely obvious… 
The end of the silver derivative market and the claims of “Force Majeure” by the Silver Shorts due to the chaos caused by the switch over to the new benchmark.

Ferguson Is A Perfect Example Of How Quickly The Streets Of America Can Descend Into Chaos

Rioting, looting, burning down stores and shooting police officers – is this about to become the “new normal” in America?   What we just witnessed happen in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri is a prime example of how quickly the streets of America can descend into chaos.
There is so much anger and frustration in this country, especially among our young people, that all it takes is a “trigger event” to spark a wildfire.  In this case, it was the shooting of an unarmed black teen by a police officer.  According to the police, 18-year-old Michael Brown got into a physical altercation with an officer and was subsequently shot.  Word spread quickly throughout the community, and protests were rapidly organized.
But the protests didn’t stay peaceful.  People started chanting “kill the police” and throwing rocks and bottles.  Store windows were smashed, the looting began, and people went absolutely crazy.  And it wasn’t just a few people that were doing the looting.  Huge mobs of people looted stores all over Ferguson
Ferguson is a perfect example of how quickly the streets of America can descend into Chaos.

When the Gates Close Forever

Jim Willie collapseNearly seven years after the world’s greatest financial crisis, we remain in monetary emergency mode, an irony matched only by the last minute battening down of the monetary hatches.
The Gates are Closing:  The recent SEC ruling on the protecting mutual fund liquidation is ominous.  It is a reflection of the type of confiscation that (ironically) only precious metals investors are obsessed with.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. And the desperation to buy and hold metal should simply be proportional to the desperation of the will of the monetary powers to maintain the status quo.
Not only are governments around the world desperate to maintain the status quo, they are equally as desperate in their preparations for the coming crash.
The bottom line: Protect yourself from extreme harm.

The One Question About Ebola That Nobody Can Seem To Answer

questionIf Ebola transmission “requires contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person” similar to Hepatitis or HIV, how in the world is it possible that more than 170 health workers have been infected by the Ebola virus? 
That is the one question about Ebola that nobody can seem to answer. The World Health Organization is reporting this as a fact, but no explanation is given as to why this is happening.  We are just assured that Ebola “is not airborne” and that getting infected “requires close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person”. If this is true, then how have more than 170 health workers caught the disease?   These workers are dressed head to toe in suits that are specifically designed to prevent the spread of the virus.   So how is this happening?

SRSRocco: How The Global Financial System Will Collapse

dollar collapse panicOne day out of the blue, the Global Financial System will collapse plunging the world’s economies into a depression for which there is no recovery.
The reason for this sudden collapse will be due to a factor that most analysts fail to recognize or understand.
While the mainstream media and alternative analyst community focus on the typical economic indicators, monetary system, derivatives and debt markets… the real problem for the world financial system will be the rapid change in the “PERCEPTIONS” of assets by investors and the public.   The coming abrupt change in market perceptions of paper assets will force investors to move into physical assets such as gold and silver to protect wealth as best they can.
This event will likely occur rather quickly — virtually overnight.
