Less than 3 weeks after the S&P downgraded US debt in 2011, after gold’s initial spike to $1900, the Government’s renewed war on gold began. The reason for this is that, in the face of trillions being printed by the Fed and trillion dollar deficits being incurred by the Government, gold was about to take out $2,000.
This was a milestone that would have likely triggered a flood of capital into both physical gold in this country and into the futures. A move like this would have destroyed the credibility of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. It further would reflect the actual truth regarding the collapsing economic/financial condition of the United States.
To keep this from turning into an event that would hinder Wall Street and the Government elitists from completely looting the wealth from our system, they had to implement a massive program of market intervention in order to take down the price of gold and eliminate the signal it was sending to the world that the U.S. is in a state of slow collapse.
Your only defense against the poisonous cesspool swirling beneath the carefully crafted facade of lies and disinformation – short of just leaving the country – is to move as much of you liquid wealth as you can into physical gold and silver. Because when the U.S. Government’s war on gold is finally forced into capitulation, the collapse of our system will be unlike the collapse of any other superpower power nation in history.
