gunThe Doc joins the SGTReport’s Rory Hall for a wide-reaching interview, discussing the physical supply situation in gold & silver (is Doc seeing signs of a developing shortage in silver?), The Doc’s outlook for gold & silver in 2014 and beyond (will gold achieve Eric Sprott’s 2014 year end target of $2,400/oz?), the mechanics of gold/silver manipulation, as well as the history behind the development and launch of the Heroes SDWarCollection

The Doc’s full interview with SGTReport & TheDailyCoin‘s Rory Hall is below:

summerIs it possible that a substantial 2014 summer rally begins after the release of this Friday’s key jobs report? I think so.
I’ve outlined a rough scenario for summer rally enthusiasts on the daily silver chart below. I’ve suggested silver could move up to about $22.
Much higher prices are possible if Western world inflation and Indian buying increase significantly, and I think that’s exactly what’s going to occur. 

SProttWe believe that any rational investor considering the collection of facts below would consider, like us, that gold prices are long overdue for a re-rate.  As we all well know, almost all markets are manipulated; and the recent Barclays settlement is one example vindicating our views.
» The global macro environment is weak,
» Supply/demand numbers in our favour,
» Ponzi finance is in full bloom.

We encourage readers to protect themselves with any/all precious metals.

JP MorganTo all of you who are on the fence about buying physical, NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY while there is physical on the shelves.  In the coming months, I truly expect metal prices to continue to depress, but at some point there will be a HUGE gap to the downside where major players (the bullion banks) cash in on their shorts very very quickly, reaping the cash, then repositioning in LONG positions as silver and gold GO TO THE MOON.
During that VERY BRIEF WINDOW, it may not be possible to purchase silver and gold at rock bottom prices and the only options left are fiat futures, index fiat futures, or fiat metal mining stocks.  You do not want to be in any of those, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION.
I firmly believe what is coming is going to confiscate all metal in mines from personal stock holdings and it is my expectation just as we see the veiled robbing of 401Ks, retirement investments, and all such fiat vehicles to “cover” the coming collapse, that all investments in paper shares will be lost.
If we have a MAJOR crash next year, a financial crisis like the world has never seen, do you really think they are going to allow the small speculator holders of paper physical metal in futures or mines to hold those vehicles when silver is $500 an ounce and gold is $10,000 an ounce?
Stay thirsty for physical, my friends…

cartel taken to kneesIn the MUST SEE video analysis below, PM Fund Manager Dave Kranzler reviews the options expiration week that was for gold on the Comex. Predictably, the hits just kept coming. The take down of gold arrived right on time, which Kranzler explains in a unique blow-by-blow format.
The thieves are laughing–all the way to the vault.
PM fund manager Dave Kranzler’s blow-by-blow video analysis of the latest orchestrated gold take-down is below:

silver fixLast week the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority fined Barclays for rigging the gold price at a gold fix for the disadvantage of a customer and the benefit of the bank’s book.  This news could not come at a worse time for the London Bullion Market and the London Gold Market Fixing Limited, the company directly responsible for the twice-daily fix.  It may well lead to the end of the gold fix, the silver fix already being axed in August.
It is hard to see how the twice-daily gold fix can survive.

Just in case you aren’t already convinced that the “war on drugs” is the biggest waste of time, energy, and money imaginable, perhaps the following tragic tale will push you over the edge.    Specifically, this story demonstrates the dangers of the militarization of the U.S. police force, combined with the increased use of SWAT raids on homes of Americans who in many cases have committed non-violent offenses and victimless “crimes.”
There are now 50,000 SWAT raids happening annually in America.
The latest indefensible action by police playing soliders took place in Georgia, and the victim was a 19-month-old toddler named Bou Bou.  The terrible crime that the officers were cracking down on was the dealing of methamphetamine, and the proper response was apparently a SWAT team raid. Not only did the police not even bother to ensure that the suspect was in the house at the time (he wasn’t), but they also threw a flash bang grenade into the young boy’s playpen.
[The device] blew open his face and his chest,” the boy’s mother, Alecia Phonesavanh, told the paper outside Grady Memorial Hospital, where the child is now in a medically induced coma. “Everybody was asleep. It’s not like anyone was trying to fight.”
Is this Afghanistan, or a supposedly free country?

Detroit is a window to our future if the people of this country don’t come to their senses pretty quick.
After you see the images below and realize this level of destruction occurred in less than five years, where will the other communities be, that are currently on the edge, five years from now?
The big investors, like BlackRock, which were getting free money to purchase the REO inventory and either sell or rent, have completely stopped.
If this inventory just sits for another three years will we look back at these images of Detroit to realize we were looking at the new model of an American neighborhood? 

Canadian Maple Leaf Sales Q1 2014With the release of the Royal Canadian Mint’s first quarter 2014 report, sales of silver maples increased substantially compared to the same period last year.  While Silver Eagles sales in Q1 declined slightly year-over-year due to a backup at the U.S. Mint, the Royal Canadian Mint reported a 24% increase in Silver Maple sales.
The Gold (and Silver) price manipulation will end one day OUT OF THE BLUE.  There will be no warningAnd of course it will be too late to purchase gold or silver.

liquid goldThis is a great example of how the game works. In a world in which every government on earth needs “liquidity” to survive, and the primary goal of every government is and always has been survival (the retention of arbitrary power at all costs), the provider of liquidity is king.   So what is liquidity and who provides it?
…Ecuador agreed to transfer more than half its gold reserves to Goldman Sachs for three years as the government seeks to bolster liquidity. The central bank said it will send 466,000 ounces of gold to Goldman Sachs, worth about $580 million at current prices, and get the same amount back three years from now…“Gold that was not generating any returns in vaults, causing storage costs, now becomes a productive asset that will generate profits,” the central bank said in the statement.

bank-holidayIt is not widely known that the English Rothschild bank funded the North in America’s Civil War, while the French Rothschild bank funded the South.  It did not matter who would win, the Rothschild’s were going to increase both their wealth and, more importantly for them, their influence in US politics. That had always been their primary objective.
Lincoln did not want to pay the bankers up to 36% interest for loans to fund the war.  He decided to issue Greenbacks by the US government, interest free so that the country was not burdened with any interest costs, a very big deal.  Lincoln was assassinated, [draw your own conclusions], and after his death, Congress immediately repealed the Greenback law.   It should be known that when Lincoln announced his use of interest-free money as a source of funding, bankers stormed to Washington D C to complain bitterly.
Message:  Never mess with bankers.

The war on privacy continues unabated, as the U.S. government continues to prove time and time again that it views the citizenry as a bunch of cattle to be branded, herded and dealt with at will.
It doesn’t seem to bother anyone in the establishment that the public has lost all faith in institutions and so-called “authority” (a concept which I do not believe in to begin with).
The evidence of a growing number of Orwellian databases being created has been available for quite some time.
The public faces another sinister and unacceptable invasion to our privacy. A national financial database is being planned, which would contain the most intimate details of our entire financial lives.  It may apply to as many as 227 million Americans.
The sinister details are below:

freefallThe Doc & Eric Dubin break down the latest cartel smash-down of the metals, discussing:

  • Is a crash to new lows imminent, or did we see the bottom Friday afternoon as gold broke below $1250 and silver below 18.70?
  • Retail demand EXPLODES– SDBullion saw largest single day sales volume EVER Friday as nearly 20,000 oz of physical silver were withdrawn from the market
  • Russia, Kazakhstan, & Belarus sign Eurasian Economic Union Agreement- accelerate plans to launch “gold” Altyn currency to replace the USD in trade! 
  • GOFO rates & options expiration- implications for the metals

Has the next major economic downturn already started?
As you will read about below, major retailers had an absolutely dreadful start to 2014 and home sales are declining just as they did back in 2007 before the last financial crisis.  Meanwhile, the U.S. economy continues to lose more good jobs and 20 percent of all U.S. families do not have a single member that is employed at this point.  2014 is turning out to be eerily similar to 2007 in so many ways, but most people are not paying attention.

BubbleThe global derivatives bubble is now 20 percent bigger than it was just before the last great financial crisis struck in 2008
Let that sink in for a moment.
JPMorgan’s derivative exposure alone has ballooned to over $70 TRILLION (mainly interest rate swaps).

We are witnessing a financial bubble far larger than anything the world has ever seen, and when it finally bursts it is going to be a complete and utter nightmare for the financial system of the planet. 
A financial crisis far greater than what we experienced in 2008 is coming, and it is going to shock the world.

gold-nanex-feb2014_Dec-6-2013-NFP_smashLast week gold and silver fell sharply. The principal reason was the expiry of the June gold future contract on Comex, whose open interest has unwound 120,000 contracts in the last six trading sessions.
Some of this has been rolled forward, but Open Interest still took a bad knock as shown in the chart below.

cashlessWill Israel be the first cashless society on the entire planet? 
A committee chaired by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s chief of staff has come up with a three phase plan to “all but do away with cash transactions in Israel”.

The interview you are about to hear contains some of the most shocking information we’ve ever heard.  Our friend and fellow precious metals researcher Road to Roota’s Bix Weir was recently interviewed by History Channel 2 for THREE HOURS as part of their new documentary style series America’s Book of Secrets.  The information Bix shared with them on camera was to be aired in the episode titled America’s Book of Secrets: Secret Underground.  What Bix said on camera was so shocking, after the interview the entire crew told him that they were going to pull all funds out of their bank accounts.
But when Book of Secrets: Secret Underground aired, Bix had been cut from the show — Not one word Bix shared with them was allowed to be broadcast. But you can know it all right now…

bulgeThe detection of the rapid rise in USTreasury Bonds in the Belgium official central bank account has aroused broad and deep suspicions.
The TIC report indicated that Russia indeed dumped a record $26 billion in January, equal to 20% of all of its holdings, bringing its post-March total to just over $100 billion.
The question must be raised whether a hidden party has joined Russia in the dumping process.
Clearly, the Belgium Bulge indicates a late stage of collapse.  The game is fast changing, using big hidden channels in the monetary war. 
History might be repeating itself with a financial war-front Battle of the Belgium Bulge, a pincer movement to capture Western gold and form the Anti-USD Central Bank.
T
he Belgium Bulge means a big Sovereign Type Entity is in the Game, who refuses to take losses but instead continues to post collateral with a goal toward taking Gold Delivery.
