BLM Confiscating Land to Back Currency With After Coming Hyperinflation?

Real estate expert Fabian Calvo thinks the recent standoff between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy is about much more than grazing rights.  Even though this standoff is over, we find out It’s really about sweetheart deals for federal land.  Calvo says, “The hair on the back of my neck stood up when I was doing research for this and speaking to some of my contacts on Wall Street.  The BLM is part of the Department of the Interior, and look at what they have been doing?  Through the BLM, the Department of the Interior has been confiscating land and going after land, for example, in the high desert in California and all over the place.  What I am hearing is they are categorizing this land for future collateralization or to sell off.  In the Weimar (Germany) hyperinflation, after the hyperinflation, what did they back their currency with?  They backed it with mortgages and they backed it with land.  This is a total possibility here in America, but here’s the part that is more sinister and crazy.  The Department of the Interior and BLM have been providing sweetheart deals for Chinese investors
In order to not have them dump our debt, we’re basically allowing them, through the Department of the Interior who is stealing rancher land and killing their cattle, they are selling out America.  [Read more...]

Gold and bail-ins

Blythe Masters Jamie DimonI am often asked whether or not western governments are likely to confiscate gold, and my answer has invariably been on the lines of “unlikely at the moment, because so few people own gold”.
However, given low stock levels in western vaults and that bail-ins are on the agenda, the answer to the question should be reconsidered. [Read more...]

The Story the MSM Won’t Tell: The Collapse in Newspaper & Magazine Subscriptions

propagandaWhen I recently cancelled my USA Today subscription, I told the nice clerk I spoke to that I was just trying to save money.  However, I also mentioned that I didn’t agree with the paper’s economic writers, writers who routinely reported on “low inflation” and how the economic recovery was on-going.
I pointed out that the rack-sale price of the paper was just increased from $1 to $2 (a 100 percent increase in price). Before this, the paper’s publisher reduced the size of a page (meaning readers got less “news” for the same price – a common tactic to conceal inflation). I’ve also noted that the ad count – and page count – of the paper continues to fall.
To compensate for declining revenues, the paper obviously has had to cut back on editorial and support staffers.
If the economy was in as strong a condition as its writers reported, why would the paper’s sales staff be having such a hard time selling ads? Why would so many subscribers be cancelling their subscriptions? 
The answer is they wouldn’t. Even in their own 9-to-5 world (if they happened to observe it), editors and writers could easily conclude that the story they were telling in their paper didn’t match the economic reality of their own business.

The New York Times, MSNBC, CSNBC, CBS News, Time magazine, your local paper … the “real story” about the state of these news organizations’ economic conditions are the same. But it’s a story that is not getting reported. [Read more...]

Alasdair Macleod: Higher Silver Prices Likely to Trigger a Vicious Bear Squeeze!

falling-bearUnlike gold, where Comex volume is moderate, silver volume is high indicating very strong support at current levels. The obvious conclusion is that bullion banks trying to balance their silver books cannot do so at current prices.
Yet higher prices are likely to trigger a vicious bear squeeze, so it appears the bullion banks with short silver positions will remain trapped either way. [Read more...]

The Obama Administration Wants Gun Owners To Wear RFID Tracking Bracelets!

RFID-chipAttorney General Eric Holder says that gun owners in the United States could eventually be forced to wear RFID tracking bracelets.  In fact, in recent testimony in front of Congress he gave the impression that this was something that the Obama administration has been thinking about for quite a long time.  Holder seems to think that this would advance the cause of “gun safety” and that gun owners wouldn’t mind having an RFID microchip tracking their every movement.  Apparently he does not know gun owners very well, because most of the gun owners that I know would be extremely resistant to the idea of being “chipped”.  But this is yet another example of how the Obama administration plans to erode Second Amendment rights.  They want to put up as many obstacles as possible to owning and using guns.
If Obama and Holder have their way, almost the entire country will eventually be unarmed. [Read more...]

GDX Gold-Stock Benchmark

Zeal041114BThe American GDX Gold Miners ETF is slowly becoming the de-facto standard for measuring gold-stock performance.
Now on those rare days when gold stocks are discussed on CNBC, the HUI is never mentioned.  In this new ETF-dominated world, the dominant ETFs have replaced minor sector indexes as the leading benchmarks of choice.  So to mainstreamers not steeped in gold-stock trading experience, GDX is the gold-stock sector.  So we’re long overdue for revisiting its construction, components, and performance.

Now That the U.S. and China Have Picked the Low-Hanging Fruit, Peak Everything Looms

gold cartel shakes the treeLet’s call the strategy of picking all the low-hanging fruit in an economy Plan A: you know, expanding credit, lowering interest rates, building infrastructure, fueling speculative frenzies, all the good stuff that fans the flames of “growth.”
Now that the central banks and political leadership of the U.S. and China have plucked all the low-hanging fruit, they have no Plan B.
With no plan to manage an economy in which expanding credit no longer generates growth, the two nations are rapidly reaching Peak Everything: [Read more...]

Is Russia Creating an Ammo Shortage?

In this weeks episode, Mark S Mann and Rory from the SGTReport discuss the very real possibility of Russia creating another ammo shortage here in the United States.
With major importers, like Wolf and Tula being sold out of Russian product (as SD warned readers was developing in early March as a result of the Ukrainian crisis), we examine how this will impact your ability to purchase practice and self defense rounds. Has Russia’s President Putin advised exporters of Russian ammo to either slow-walk orders or stop shipping altogether? How long could it last?
We also discuss who is purchasing firearms, what they are doing with them and how this impacts, not only the quality of ammo but the quantity available for sale.
Later in the program we look at the impact of Presidential cycles and how in just a few short years firearms and ammunition sales have grown from a declining market to a point of shortages.
We discuss hoarding vs investment in ammunition. We take an in-depth look at how cheap ammo can impact the investment you made in an expensive firearm.

Why the Standoff at the Bundy Ranch is a Very Big Deal

If you haven’t been following the unfolding drama at the Bundy Ranch about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas you need to start now. The escalating confrontation between irate local residents and federal agents of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has the potential to take a very dangerous turn for the worse at any moment, as hundreds of militia members from states across the country are expected to descend upon the area and make a stand with 67-year-old Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy.
The kindling for social upheaval has been growing in America for quite some time.
The question in my mind has always been what will the catalyst be to spark the brushfire? Will it be the Bundy Ranch?
