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

By the way, did you see this earlier this week? ( 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


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 ( 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: 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.

Silver will be exploding due

Silver will be exploding due to its own set of dramatic fundamental changes.

I remember hearing a while back that the Chinese told Hillary they wanted Tennessee too, couple that with what Susanne Posel said about China taking physical control of part of the US and the new Red Dawn movie that was changed from the Chinese invading to the North Koreans.

For the weather service and Soc security peeps. These numbers are just defensive in nature for handguns carried by security. Anyone that would choose .40 cal as an offensive round would also wear blaze orange camo. If you divide the soc security by 40 most preppers would be embarrassed to let their friends know thats all they had. If you need to worry ask yourself what blackwater or whatever they call themselves this week is stacking and where.

"What do you believe will happen to us little guys holding physical when we want to sell it after the dollar collapse?"

You need to follow the Social Security Administrations lead. Protection, protection, protection.

Today's dubious anniversary

So far, no one has mentioned it. 8/15/71 is a date which lives in infamy.

Nixon Ends Bretton Woods International Monetary System

Here's the link to the discussion last year:

And, for the record, silver did make it to $44 by Labor Day. Just barely. Of course, it's gone down a little since then.

Not to be an Alarmist, but...

The 1-month Silver Lease Rates are creeping down again and are just above -0.3.....

Sounds like you know your weapons

I agree with your inference. I used to suggest in 03 to my clients these events had a potential to take place... The article that pointed me in that direction I found on CNNMoney, but was issued via GATA. Here's the link I couldn't find the web page in CNN, I still have the hard copy as a reference piece on my desk.

People had a hard time believing then.. We carry on!

This article appeared in "Stocks, Futures & Options" Magazine in 2004; It was written by Rick Ackerman, a former floor trader at the Pacific Options Exchange. He is a Zen Master trader and he tells you to avoid options.... it is a rigged market and the little guy will not win... ever. Andy will not win in this arena either. I began trading options in the mid-70's and lost more than $100,000 in the next 25 years, even using Bernie Shaffer's premium service.

I know Andy and Paul both pretty well as we were all subscribers to Rick Ackerman's trading service back in 2004-2010 or thereabouts and chatted frequently in his chat room. Andy and Paul left a little over a year ago to start their own service. I still subscribe to Rick's service, but also followed Andy and Paul to theirs. Note that they are excellent traders and also that they both incorporate Rick's hidden pivot analysis in their own unique programs. In fact, this appears on Rick's website under "Accolades": "Regardless of what I achieve trading-wise in the future I will always consider Rick Ackerman the person that taught me to be a trader." Paul Coghlan, Market analyst.

Rick repeats his warning frequently in his chat room whenever a subscriber or "free trial" lurker asks for option guidance. The only option traders that have a chance of making money are the option "sellers".

As Tim W Wood CPA is fond of saying... "You have been warned!"

PS: I posted on the previous thread before realizing a new thread had started.

So can we expect an announcement that the Post Office put in a large order for hollow point ammo too? Or is that agency on the gun ban list?

Anyway, all this news smacks of the criminal defense m.o., to wit, baffle them with bullshit.

Be right, sit tight. And most importantly, keep dry, don't cry.

Let all the criminal PTB's and their minions (lol minions lol) do all the stomping of their feet crying us rivers of tears for their fears.

Break out the tiny little violins guys, after 41 years they're finally going down and we're gonna have us a hootinanny :D
