The NWS

And I'm not talking about the National Weather Service.

By the way, did you see this earlier this week? ( https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/post/national-weather-service-ammunition-solicitation-triggers-confusion/2012/08/14/3dc6b67e-e62a-11e1-936a-b801f1abab19_blog.html) OK, so I can understand the whole, "clerical error" thing but what the heck does the "National Marine Fisheries Service" need guns for, much less 46,000 freaking rounds? Seems like a bit of overkill to me, no pun intended.

Anyway...and when I say NWS, I don't mean NWO:

George Bush New World Order

Or NWA:

N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton [Explicit] [HD]
National Wrestling Council

Or even the NWF:

This is National Wildlife Federation: "Now's Our Time"

I'm talking about the NWS - the New World System.

Earlier this morning, I saw this post at ZH ( https://www.zerohedge.com/news/presenting-shocking-source-us-treasury-demand-past-year) and it got me thinking. In the post, it's mentioned that Japan has dramatically increased its purchases of treasuries while China has actually been a net seller. The question is asked: "What is China doing with their dollar reserves" if they're no longer buying treasuries? This is where ole Turd's brain started churning.

Two months ago, I wrote this: https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3924/gonefor-good. At the time I wrote it, I expected it to be quite the bombshell within our little "goldbug" community. Instead, it was met with yawns and dispassion. Perhaps that is what I should have expected. I mean, seriously, BREAKING NEWS from a guy who goes by the name of "Turd"? Well, regardless, I stand by the facts of this story and the opinions contained therein. Gold continues to exit "the system" at a consistent pace, never to return.

I'm re-posting it today not because I'm out of material and I need to dredge up the old stuff to fill space. I'm re-posting it because this truly is a very important development and one that, because it's not on the national/internet radar, is being widely discounted and overlooked.

You see, no one on Wall Street or in the financial media has any interest in pursuing this story. The MSM and TPTB are completely invested in maintaining the status quo and they will do so right up to the point where the game is changed for them. China will continue to accumulate gold and silver. They will continue to refine and re-cast this metal into new, standard and official sizes. They will continue to sign and implement bilateral currency and trade agreements that bypass the U.S. dollar. And they will continue to open portals for the international use of the renminbi.

Then, one day, seemingly out-of-the-blue, they will announce an alternative...A New World System that offers some type of gold-backed, international trade settlement, utilizing a non-fiat and sound renminbi or perhaps an entirely new and distinct, gold-backed and internationally-recognized trade unit. One way or another, this is going to happen. The only question is WHEN.

WHEN this happens, the U.S and all the other fiat currency countries will be forced into revaluing whatever gold reserves they have left. This is the "global gold price reset at multiples higher" that I have mentioned before, the result of which will be extraordinary, near-hyper inflation and a dramatic devaluation of the existing fiat. Additionally and importantly, it is through this process that the debtor nations of the world (the U.S. being the largest), will "pay down" the majority of their current obligations.

Again, you must understand that I am extremely confident that this is how things will ultimately play out. The only question is the timing and the specifics regarding which country or countries will ultimately force the issue. For example, it is entirely possible that China won't act independently. Perhaps the major creditor nations will band together. Some consortium of China, Russia and India. We'll see. In the end, that part doesn't really matter. What does matter is that this is inevitable.

Please continue to use this time to add to your physical holdings but remember...The only metal you truly own is the metal you hold in your own two hands.

And here are some charts for today

I could also use a "head count" regarding the possible options trading service I mentioned yesterday. Keeping in mind that the monthly subscription fee would likely be similar to the DayTrades fee (which is 1-3%, depending upon your personal account equity), would you consider yourself a "likely subscriber"? Please hat tip this comment if you're interested. Thanks!

repost of Ann Barnhardt comment . . .

"The courts facilitated the fraudulent bankruptcy filing of MF Global, and now the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals- upholding a decision from the District Court- has now made this absolutely MIND-BLOWING decision, setting precedents that say customers have absolutely no right to their segregated funds held in any depository or financial institution! "

She goes on to say that people will be better off cashing in their IRAs, 401-ks, brokerage accounts, etc., pay the tax, and buy stuff to hold in personal possession.

I was lucky, and was able to do this over the last few years. The tax-paying part was very painful, especially since I had to pay the 10% penalty as well, but now I'm glad I did it. I had to leave my employer as well--I explained why I needed to do it, so after I got my money out, he hired me back! I just have to remember what part of the lake my stash fell into when taking it out for a maritime excursion . . .

Me too

Top five redux - 'bout all I have to offer these days. Stacking, though the right thing to do,can sure be boring at times. Only so much excitement to be had by fondling a stack of shiny stuff.

"They" know something, methinks...

First it was the Department of Homeland Security, then it was the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and now the Social Security Administration is set to purchase 174,000 rounds of hollow point bullets that will be delivered to 41 locations across the country.

@Turd

I think you are dead on. The debt of the world no longer serves a positive purpose for the surplus countries like China. The debt of the world is preventing growth in the deficit countries like U.S., European union, etc.

They must have something that can counterbalance the debts they carry. Supposedly, the U.S. has 8000 tons of gold it took from the people in 1933 when FDR confiscated it. Some 254,000,000 ounces. At $55,000/oz (FOFOA's estimate) that's a lot of debt that can be counterbalanced. China, et al, might agree to send us stuff if we can prove, through gold, that we're actually good for it, and not just paying with digits on a computer.
