Trump won’t free gold & silver, nor will anybody else in the cartel (the ESF, the Fed, and agents acting on behalf of one or both). There’s only one way…
There’s really only one way to end the manipulation of gold & silver: STOP GAMBLING IN THE RIGGED CASINO KNOWN AS WALL STREET.
It really is as simple as that, and no, I don’t just mean don’t buy call options on JNUG, but rather, I’m talking about the paper financial markets in general, and, more specifically, playing in the overly-bastardized, financially-repressive system of an unbacked, debt-based fiat currency dependent on unsustainable, exponential growth.
There is one major hurdle to the only way to end the manipulation of gold & silver, however: GREED.
And it might be just a tad bit too high to ever jump over?
People are greedy, and they’re unwilling to set aside their greed, for even just a minute, for the common good.
And that’s why the manipulation goes on, and on, and on, and on.
Nobody is willing to individually sacrifice in even the very slightest of sacrifice, for the collective good of returning to Constitutional Money.
Some call it God’s Money.
Others call it Sound Money.
Many call it Honest Money.
It’s called Gold & Silver.
And I’ll go ahead and call it a dang shame that people can’t resist the temptation of greed, for even just a little while, much less long enough to overwhelm the cartel and force their hand.
So be it.
The manipulation deniers couldn’t live with themselves if they admitted to the manipulation because they know that in their heart of hearts it’s morally wrong to indulge in the selfish greed of a quick buck in the “markets” at the expense of free markets overall.
And those who admit to the manipulation but play anyway remind me of that fat bastard in McDonald’s who orders not one, but two super-size meals, and a hot apple pie, yet to counter his self-indulgence in a pathetic attempt to self-justify his behavior, he makes one of the two drinks a Large Diet Coke.
Not unlike the guy who’s all levered-up on margin and doesn’t realize his trading account’s about to blow-up, yet he owns exactly one American Silver Eagle as a hedge, somewhere, if he can only find it.
Sorry, the one Diet Coke doesn’t make it right.
Just admit that it’s wrong and enjoy the meal.
OK, “Hey Half Dollar, come on now, because it’s not like you’re not greedy yourself, you hypocrite!”.
I am greedy.
You are right.
I never said I wasn’t.
In fact, in my never-ending, insatiable quest to satisfy my own selfish greed, there’s this thought that enters my mind every once in a while, and while it is not a suggestion, nor am I saying, “do this”, or “don’t do that”, the thought is this: Theoretically, If everybody stopped paying their debts all at once, and in unison, and I do mean all of them, from credit cards to student loans to car loans to mortgages, etcetera, that collective act would literally force the Debt Jubilee everybody likes to talk so much about, because if everybody refuses to pay, the banks have a problem, and that means ‘Ol Half Dollar’s (and any one else’s) debts get reset, or, said differently, simply go away!
Furthermore, the greed which enters my mind from time to time could even be considered a benefit to all of mankind, because in addition to the Debt Jubilee, it would also bring about the return, provoked by the People, to Honest Money, and, more importantly, honest savings and honest spending, and thus, it would give us the groundwork for an honest, productive society with actual opportunity.
But what does the greed of gambling in a rigged casino accomplish other than continuing to feed the beast?
Now, I’m not one to judge, but if greed is unavoidable in humans, which it is, then what greed leads a person to do is what matters.
For now, everybody’s cool with just slavin’ away because apparently, that’s what matters the most.
I remember around the time of the 2016 Election, I overhead an elderly man say something to the effect of, “well, I don’t really like Trump, but as long as he doesn’t touch my Social Security, I guess he’ll be okay”.
And therein lies the problem I’ve been trying to describe.
Nobody is willing to give up one single inch.
Not even one single inch.
OK, “Hey Half Dollar, why are you so frustrated today?”.
Fair question: I’m frustrated because half of the country (those protesting) don’t understand the real cause of all of our problems – we’ve corrupted our money – and many people in the other half of the country do understand the real cause of all of our problems, but amazingly, those people are still drunk on the Trump Kool Aid.
Here’s the thing: Trump’s an Actor and a Salesman.
It’s easy to see, and sad at the same time.
Specifically, Trump acts like he’s working for the good of America, and yet he’s selling what’s left of America down the river.
Trump is a modern day SLAVE OWNER in our MODERN DAY SLAVERY, and he will never willingly free Gold & Silver.
Gold & silver will eventually free themselves.
There will be no proclamations, no special day that gets designated, no declarations, no celebrations, and much less are there gonna be reparations.
Many Gold Bugs and Silver Bugs will not live long enough to see their freedom.
Sadly, most of ’em live under the misguided belief that Trump will set them free.
The temptation is indeed great:
The problem is, however, unless you’re on the very inside with direct knowledge of the plan, you are playing Russian Roulette, and eventually, you’ll lose.
Of course, you’d think they ran out of bullets to play with by looking at the VIX:
They haven’t run out of bullets – it’s rigged!
Yield on the 10-Year Note keeps poking its head above 0.70%:
A few thousand points in the Dow should take care of that, all the while allowing the riggers to scalp an upgrade for their luxury summer vacations.
That’s one bouncy cat:
If you are not sure where the market rigging stems from, check-out the Exchange Stabilization Fund over on Treasury.gov.
I’d say the gap’s finally filled now:
Does that mean the bottom falls out next week?
It really is amazing to me that people still think we’re getting deflation:
For things that matter the most to most of the People, prices are clearly going up.
Palladium is stuck in a rut, and I think it will continue to be stuck in a rut:
Gold reaching parity should help with that, but in the meantime, we’ve a “death cross” to deal with, if the charts matter.
Platinum is still way down, year-to-date:
Will platinum erase all of those losses and turn positive on the next rally?
The gold-to-silver ratio is pretty much right where it started the week:
If the correction in the metals is indeed finally over, then we could be under 90 by the end of next week.
Gold looks strong to finish the week:
We’re very near the break to the upside, but the problem for the cartel is the amount of excitement that’s going to come back into the gold market once we crack $1800.
Silver continues to be the one thing in the entire world the cartel fears the most:
Sure looks like the cartel wasn’t able to paint that head-n-shoulders, doesn’t it?
Bottom line as we find ourselves here this beautiful Friday in mid-June?
I am not one to judge, much less am I one to tell anybody what to do.
Although I will say this: There is a way to beat the cartel for good.
The problem is, nobody’s willing to put forth the effort needed.
It reminds me of that Pink Floyd song from back in the day.
Hanging on in quiet something or other is how it goes.
Here’s the thing: Soon, People will become Honest.
But that won’t happen until people are forced.
When will people be forced to be Honest?
Not until they lose every single thing.
Because the people are greedy.
They will fight each other.
For every last scrap.
Of fiat currency.
Until it’s gone.
