The closer the system comes to unraveling altogether, gold and silver remain attractive as a means of holding onto money with ready, liquid exchange value.
How Close Are We to the “Panic of 2016”?
Gerald Celente says, “We are at the doorstep, and it’s ready to go…”
Bo Polny predicts that people will catch what he calls “gold fever.” Polny explains, “The moment gold goes vertical, people are going to realize gold is money. Well, yeah, but actually it is insurance against paper money. When paper money fails, then your insurance policy pays out with money, gold money. So, it’s just that simple. . . . Gold is only an asset and insurance policy if you are holding it.”
From Greg Hunter:
The market keeps falling and the Fed can’t stop it. Gold is up something like $100 an ounce.
The price of gold is going to skyrocket, and it’s going to go up so much more than this because we are just getting started.
They are not going to do anything to rein in inflation because it’s impossible. Gold is going to sense this. It’s going to smell blood. You’ve got a lot of people who are shorting the gold market. They are going to get crushed.
from USA Watchdog:
Financial expert Jeff Berwick says you don’t have to wait for the next market crash…
“Gold rises when people lose confidence in government. It has nothing to do with inflation. So, when you start to worry about government is not going to survive or who’s going to win, that’s when gold rises. Short term, we still have the risk of it going under $1,000 per ounce. It’s going to flip when everything is right. It will probably max out at $5,000 per ounce. . . . You are really talking about a major reset coming…”
From Greg Hunter, USAWatchdog:
“Everything that previous presidents have done to try to defuse the kind of tensions between nuclear powers that could lead to war, all this has been thrown away by Clinton, George W. Bush and the current White House fool. It’s all due to the Neoconservatives. So, yes, we are in a more dangerous situation than in the worst part of the cold war.”
Former World Bank Senior Counsel and whistleblower Karen Hudes has an amazing revelation about secret U.S. gold.
Hudes says, “We’ve been offered, the United States, 170,500 metric tons of gold on deposit in the bank of Hawaii to underpin our currency which is about to crash. The Federal Reserve Notes are unconstitutional, and we don’t have to pay interest on our debt, and we don’t have to have debt for that matter.”
What does Hudes say to her skeptics that doubt her story of 170,500 tons of gold in Hawaii? Hudes says, “I say you are totally kept in the dark and that the mainstream media is controlled by this network of control that is totally documented by the Federal Institute of Technology. You really ought to chide yourself that you are deliberately kept in the dark. So, you shouldn’t be surprised that the world’s wealth is hidden from you when so much else is hidden from you.”
Robert Wiedemer, best-selling author of “The Aftershock Investor,” says the so-called recovery is “100 percent fake.” Our entire growth is due to government borrowing . . . it’s a fake recovery.”
On the bond market, Wiedemer contends, “ The money we are printing, ultimately, will create inflation. That’s really going to be a problem for the bond market.”
On gold, Wiedemer says to not believe the false narrative that gold is a “risky” investment: “Let’s look at gold since 2000. Up 12 years in a row, every single year. That’s risky? We’re still up over 300% from where we were in 2000!
For anyone who thinks we’ve seen the worst of the bad economy—think again. Wiedemer predicts, “The big one is coming . . . we’re just pumping up the bubbles, and all that’s going to do is make them a lot worse when they pop. . . . You are just putting more gun powder under the house . . . that’s a big mistake long term.”
Robert Wiedemer’s full interview with Greg Hunter is below:
Professor William Black is a former financial regulator and an expert in white collar crime. According to Black, the financial system is headed for an even bigger collapse. As a major warning sign, Professor Black points to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s recent complaint about no money for regulation in the recent budget deal. Professor Black says, “Jack Lew is the anti-canary in the coal mine because Lew has been gutting regulation for virtually all of his professional life. . . . Lew is saying, my God we’ve gone so far we’re going to cause the collapse of the system. . . . You know when Jack Lew keels over, you know that carbon monoxide has already killed everybody reasonable.” Professor Black goes on to say, “The system is ungovernable . . . It has already largely imploded.”

Gerald Celente is one of the world’s top trends researchers. His top trends in 2014 start with the Middle East. Iran, Syria, Egypt, Israel, Yemen and Turkey are just a few of the countries facing big problems. Celente exclaims, “You just keep going around the Middle East, it’s total turmoil.” Will there be war in the Middle East in 2014? Celente says, “I thought it would have happened last year; but, then again, there are wild cards.” On the economy, Celente predicts, “Interest rates are going to go up. . . . When interest rates go up, the economy is going down—period.” Celente goes on to say, “I think they are going to institute more tapering, and it’s going to create a financial crisis worldwide.” On gold, Celente predicts, “Then they’re going to dump more dough into the system. When that happens, that’s when you’re going to see the real panic start to happen. . . . You’re going to see a rise in gold prices that’s going to eclipse the last one.” In Asia, Celente points out, “Things are heating up between China and Japan. If that thing goes into a war, it’s a whole new game.” Celente predicts, “Absent the war card, I think we will see a financial crisis before the end of the second quarter of 2014.”
Former Assistant Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says, “Let’s cut to the chase. It’s got nothing to do with Syria. The reason they are looking for a fabricated excuse to attack Assad is to continue the radicalization of Muslims in the hopes this spreads into the Muslim populations of Russia and China. . . .
Washington intends to weaken the two giants it cannot run over.” Dr. Roberts goes on to warn, “I think this will lead to World War III, and that, of course, will be nuclear.” One big dilemma Dr. Roberts points out, “The issue is will any aspect of the government have any credibility if they back Obama when the rest of the world already knows he’s lying through his teeth? . . . This time the big lie didn’t work like it did in Iraq.” On the economic front, Dr. Roberts worries, “If they start abandoning the dollar, the collapse of the exchange rate will bring down the whole house of cards in the United States. The Fed will lose control. The banks will fail. Prices will rise dramatically. People will essentially not be able to pay their bills. It will be an unbelievable mess.”
What would happen to gold with a Syrian war? Dr. Roberts says, “If you get a real collapse in the dollar, gold could be $30,000 an ounce. Who knows?” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with economist Dr. Paul Craig Roberts.
Financial analyst Jim Willie says there is no way the Fed is going to stop printing money or even “taper” it. He charges, “Everything is dependent on Fed support. They know if they take it away, they’re going to create a black hole. The Treasury bond is the greatest asset bubble in history. It’s at least twice as large as the housing and mortgage bubble, maybe three or four times as large.”
Willie goes on to say, “I think the Fed’s balance sheet is going to expand further, not contract.” As far as the gold price, Dr. Willie says what you are seeing now is not real. Dr. Willie says, “In order for the real gold price to reflect true value, we must shut down the COMEX. Don’t worry; they’re helping themselves to shut it down by keeping the price down and causing a fire sale around the world.” Willie says a big upward move is coming in gold. What could be the trigger? Willie says, “It might be a default for gold delivery . . . at the same time that a big bank fails. I am hearing every single night there are three big banks that are running the risk of failure.” Willie predicts, “If we have another repeat of Lehman, it’s going to be 10 times larger. It’s not going to be containable.”
Financial analyst Karl Denninger says, “If you keep raising the debt ceiling willy nilly, you’re going to get downgraded.” Denninger thinks the latest talks in Washington will only kick the fiscal can down the road. He says, “The truth of what we have to do is still politically impossible.” Denninger contends, “All you are seeing now is the tap dance around the fact we have to accept a 7, 8 maybe 10 to 15% fiscal contraction in GDP in order to come back into balance.” Denninger says the sooner you take the hit, the better it will be because “the damage you take today is always less than the damage you will take if you kick the can and wait until tomorrow.” Don’t expect politicians to do the right thing–yet. Denninger says, “There is no stomach to put their jobs on the line . . . We need statesmen who will say I will get fired over this. . . . That’s the price the country has to pay.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Karl Denninger.
Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Treasury Secretary in the Reagan Administration, and he warns, “America is going to crash big time.” Dr. Roberts says, “The real problem is not the fiscal cliff.” The dollar is on very thin ice. Dr. Roberts says, “They can’t stop hemorrhaging the debt, and the way they cover that is to hemorrhage the dollar.” In this real time scenario, Dr. Roberts goes on to say, “When you have debt pouring out and dollars pouring out, the dollar can’t keep its value forever. At some point, people will run away from it, and it will start abroad.” Dr. Roberts thinks there is “an impending collapse of the exchange value,” and the U.S. dollar could unexpectedly plunge in buying power. Dr. Roberts contends, “All of a sudden, people walk into Walmart, as usual, and they think they’ve walked into Neiman Marcus.” Dr. Roberts says there are no quick fixes to the bulging debt because “there’s no way to close this deficit when corporations are moving the tax base off-shore.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts.
Financial analyst Gregory Mannarino says, “The Federal Reserve is going to print into oblivion. Why? Because cash is going out of style.” It was recently reported the Fed is buying 90% of U.S. Treasuries. Mannarino contends, “The Federal Reserve has to go out and buy Treasury bonds. It they don’t do this, it’s over . . . the system collapses. The Fed is now the lender of last resort.” Mannarino predicts not only America, but the world, is headed for a collapse. “Nothing they do now can change the trajectory we are on, which is the mother of all collapses of the financial system–on a global level,” says Mannarino. When that happens, what is going to happen to all the asset classes? Mannarino says, “You got to be nuts to buy 10-Year Treasury bonds . . . . At some point, it will be the free market that will decide fair value with regard to everything across the board, including debt.” Mannarino thinks interest rates will spike and “commodities are going to go to the moon . . . gold and silver are going up over the long term.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Gregory Mannarino.
Asset manager Nick Barisheff says, “There’s never been a fiat currency in history that didn’t end in hyperinflation and complete collapse.” Barisheff thinks that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s most recent call to have an “unlimited debt ceiling” for the U.S. was “just telling the truth.” That’s essentially what we have now with “open-ended” money printing by the Fed. Barisheff adds, “All it’s doing is postponing a problem . . . it makes it bigger and eventually it blows up.” Forget about remedies for the economy, it’s too late. Barisheff says, “We’ve passed the point of this getting fixed.” Barisheff thinks if the Fed’s gold holdings are ever audited, there will be a “gigantic short-covering rally . . . multiple bankruptcies . . . and a massive loss of confidence” in the dollar because much of the gold is gone or leased out. Barisheff thinks the gold price could be “easily double” right now. That’s because Barisheff believes, “What’s kept the price down is the artificial leased gold going onto the markets.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Nick Barisheff, CEO of the $650 million Bullion Management Group.
Chris Duane of Dont-Tread-On.me says Hurricane Sandy should be a wakeup call for the entire country. Duane says, “The impact of a dollar collapse will be hundreds, if not thousands, of times more disruptive to life than a two day storm.” Duane goes on to say, “Sandy is a great precursor to help you get your act in gear.” According to Duane, most people are just as unprepared for a dollar calamity as they were for the recent super storm in the Northeast. A much bigger financial storm is coming. “The big problem with all this is counter-party risk. You cannot trust anybody; you can’t even trust the currency.” Duane trusts physical silver, and he thinks its 53 to 1 silver to gold ratio per ounce makes silver attractive. Duane thinks he could make a good case for “. . . a one-to-one silver to gold ratio, especially with all the paper manipulation.” Duane says, “The system will collapse, it must collapse, and people will learn a very difficult lesson.” In the next move up, Duane see’s silver “pushing past $50 per ounce.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Chris Duane.
Economist Michael Pento says forget the “Fiscal Cliff” you have been told about. Pento charges, “The real ‘Fiscal Cliff’ is the coming currency and bond market collapse.”
Pento says if we stay on our current path, “We are in for an interest rate shock that will make the Great Depression look like the days of wine and roses.” The open-ended Fed money printing is creating “. . . a fictitious world of artificially low interest rates,” according to Pento. He says, “We need to move quickly towards a balanced budget . . . yes, it will be painful for a lot of people.” If we don’t change course, Pento says, “A financial collapse is inevitable . . . the free market will force this Fiscal Cliff upon us. There is no way around it.” If you ever wanted to hear Mr. Pento uninterrupted and unfiltered by mainstream financial media, here’s your chance.

Greg Mannarino says “open-ended” QE by the Fed is “the big print“ that is signaling “the currency is dying. The debt based economic model is over . . . and a new system is coming.” Mannarino is a financial analyst who advises, “Bet against bonds which is debt, and bet against currency which is debt, and you will come out of this good.” Mannarino says the dollar calamity that is unfolding is the biggest financial event ever. He goes on to say, “We have never witnessed anything like this in the history of the world.” Mannarino states investors must become their own central bank by acquiring PHYSICAL GOLD AND SILVER NOW!!!
