Ron Paul: Nothing Orderly About the Currency Collapse That’s Coming- It Will Be a Panic!

Play

Ron PaulCongressman & former Presidential Candidate Ron Paul joins the show this week, discussing:

  • Putin’s response to US sanctions with economic retaliation- implications for US economy & the US Dollar- It is very significant, dumping of US dollars has begun…The dollar can’t be maintained.  One reason the dollar has been sustained as well as it has been is who wants to buy yuan or euros?  But ultimately they will buy the real money, and that’s gold!
  • Paul on the Coming collapse of the dollar & all fiat currencies:  Officials in charge of monetary policy are very aware of what’s coming- they believe as long as it is orderly they will be ok…The problem is when people lose confidence in a currency, they lose confidence completely.  There’s nothing orderly about it!  There’s always a panic, and that’s hard to manage.   There will be a day when people will panic in the financial markets, not only in the dollar, but in the world-wide system!
  • The former member of the House Financial Services Committee explains why his nemesis at the Federal Reserve works so hard to discredit gold, and what he wishes he would have asked Ben Bernanke during his grilling of the Fed Chairman at his House Hearings on the Fed’s Monetary Policy

On the US Gold Reserves: Could the Gold Really All Be There?

gold bars knoxRon Paul, who was a a well informed member of the US House of Representatives in 2011, proposed new legislation at the time to have yearly audits of the US official gold reserves: The Gold Reserve Transparency Act (not enacted).
Only during the preparation of the congressional hearing Dr Paul became aware there had been yearly audits in recent decades. Strangely the biggest proponent of a gold standard in US politics didn’t have access to this information prior to the investigation. [Read more...]

Ron Paul: If Spying on Senate is So Bad, Why is it OK For Them To Spy On Us?

FeinsteinThe reaction of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to last week’s revelations that the CIA secretly searched Senate Intelligence Committee computers reveals much about what the elites in government think about the rest of us. “Spy on thee, but not on me!
The hypocrisy of Sen. Feinstein is astounding. She is the biggest backer of the NSA spying on the rest of us, but when the tables are turned and her staff is the target she becomes irate. But there is more to it than that. There is an attitude in Washington that the laws Congress passes do not apply to Members. They can trample our civil liberties, they believe, but it should never affect their own freedom. [Read more...]

Ron Paul: At the Fed, Deja-Vu All Over Again!

deja vuLast week, Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen testified before Congress for the first time since replacing Ben Bernanke at the beginning of the month. Her testimony confirmed what many of us suspected, that interventionist Keynesian policies at the Federal Reserve are well-entrenched and far from over. Mrs. Yellen practically bent over backwards to reassure Wall Street that the Fed would continue its accommodative monetary policy well into any new economic recovery. The same monetary policy that got us into this mess will remain in place until the next crisis hits.
Isn’t it amazing that the same people who failed to see the real estate bubble developing, the same people who were so confident about economic recovery that they were talking about “green shoots” five years ago, the same people who have presided over the continued destruction of the dollar’s purchasing power never suffer any repercussions for the failures they have caused?

Ron Paul: al-Qaeda Deja Vu?

ron-paul-dont-steal-government-hates-competitionAppearing last week before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified that he could not say the threat from al-Qaeda is any less today than it was ten years ago. It was a shocking admission. Does he mean that the trillions of dollars spent fighting the war on terrorism have resulted in no gains? That those who urged us to give up some of our liberties to gain security have, as Benjamin Franklin warned, lost both?
There may be reasons Director Clapper would want us to believe that the threat from al-Qaeda is as strong as ever. An entire industry has arisen from the government’s war on terror, and for both the government sector and the security-industrial complex the terrorist “threat” is big business. [Read more...]

FLASHBACK: Jim Rogers & Ron Paul Predicted MyRA, IRA/401K Confiscation

Ron Paul Jim RogersThey will take our retirement accounts.  They will take our 401k’s.  They will say ‘you’ve all been having such hard times earning money in your 401k’s is we’re going to save you with 30 year gov’t bonds which are guaranteed at 3%, and you give us your retirement assets in return.’
In the 1930′s they took gold, this time I don’t think they will take bank accounts, but I would be very worried about having an IRA or a pension plan in the United States.
  -Jim Rogers
They will do what they think is necessary and they’ll use force, intimidation, and guns, because you can’t challenge the state’s so called right to control the money.  They will confiscate retirement funds if they need to do it.  Eventually if you have private fund, the people I know in Washington, they’re quite capable of saying, You’ve got to save the country, you can buy Treasury bills from now on!  -Ron Paul

In the words of The Sovereign Man:  This is happening.

Ron Paul: After 100 Years of Failure, It’s Time To End The Fed!

fedA week from now, the Federal Reserve System will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its founding
We are reaping the noxious effects of a century of loose monetary policy, as our economy remains mired in mediocrity and utterly dependent on a stream of easy money from the central bank. A century ago, politicians failed to understand that the financial panics of the 19th century were caused by collusion between government and the banking sector. The government’s growing monopoly on money creation, high barriers to entry into banking to protect politically favored incumbents, and favored treatment for government debt combined to create a rickety, panic-prone banking system. Had legislators known then what we know now, we could hope that they never would have established the Federal Reserve System.
Today, however, we do know better. We know that the Federal Reserve continues to strengthen the collusion between banks and politicians. We know that the Fed’s inflationary monetary policy continues to reap profits for Wall Street while impoverishing Main Street. And we know that the current monetary regime is teetering on a precipice.
One hundred years is long enough. End the Fed. [Read more...]

Ron Paul: Federal Reserve Steals From the Poor and Gives to the Rich

BernankeTwo days before the Janet Yellen confirmation hearings, Andrew Huszar, an ex-Fed official, publicly apologized to the American people for his role in QE. Mr. Huszar called QE “the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time.”
As recently as five years ago, it would have been unheard of for a Wall Street insider and former Fed official to speak so bluntly about how the Fed acts as a reverse Robin Hood. But a quick glance at the latest unemployment numbers shows that QE is not benefiting the average American. It is increasingly obvious that the Fed’s post-2008 policies of bailouts, money printing, and bond buying benefited the big banks and the politically-connected investment firms. QE is such a blatant example of crony capitalism that it makes Solyndra look like a shining example of a pure free market! [Read more...]

Ron Paul: Chained CPI Chains Taxpayers

Jim WillieOne of the least discussed, but potentially most significant, provisions in President Obama’s budget is the use of the “chained consumer price index” (chained CPI), to measure the effect of inflation on people’s standard of living. Chained CPI is an effort to alter the perceived impact of inflation via the gimmick of “full substitution.” This is the assumption that when the price of one consumer product increases, consumers will simply substitute a similar, lower-cost product with no adverse effect. Thus, the government decides your standard of living is not affected if you can no longer afford to eat steak, as long as you can afford to eat hamburger.
Changing government statistics to exploit the decline in the American way of life and benefit big spending politicians and their cronies in the big banks does nothing but harm the American people.

Ron Paul: A Welcome US/Saudi Reset

Ron PaulLast week it was reported that Saudi Arabia decided to make a “major shift” away from its 80 years of close cooperation with the United States. The Saudi leadership is angry that the Obama administration did not attack Syria last month, and that it has not delivered heavy weapons to the Syrian rebels fighting to overthrow the Assad government. Saudi Arabia is heavily invested in the overthrow of the Assad government in Syria, sending money and weapons to the rebels.
If Saudi Arabia wants to pull back from its deep and unhealthy relationship with the United States we should welcome such a move. Then we might return to peace and commerce rather than sink under entangling alliances. [Read more...]

Ron Paul: New Fed Boss Same as the Old Boss

bernanke yellenThe news that Janet Yellen was nominated to become the next Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System was greeted with joy by financial markets and the financial press. Wall Street saw Yellen’s nomination as a harbinger of continued easy money. Contrast this with the hand-wringing that took place when Larry Summers’ name was still in the running. Pundits worried that Summers would be too cautious, too hawkish on inflation, or too close to big banks.
The reality is that there wouldn’t have been a dime’s worth of difference between Yellen’s and Summers’ monetary policy. No matter who is at the top, the conduct of monetary policy will be largely unchanged: large-scale money printing to bail out big banks. There may be some fiddling around the edges, but any monetary policy changes will be in style only, not in substance. [Read more...]
