Time For A Break

You know how they say that dogs can sense an impending earthquake? Don't you kind of feel that way these days? I know I do.

First, it seems that everything is down. Stocks. Bonds. Commodities. Every currency. If there's a market for it, it's being sold. The only thing that is consistently rising this past week is The Pig. And once those dollars are bought, where are they going? Apparently nowhere. Very strange. Almost ominous.

Then you've got very knowledgeable folks like Bill Holter at MilesFranklin blaring the alarm with columns like this: https://blog.milesfranklin.com/the-great-unwind-has-finally-arrived and this: https://blog.milesfranklin.com/the-button-has-been-pushed-ready-or-not

We've got Santa, who is clearly very, very nervous. He's practically begging you to meet him somewhere for a discussion: https://www.jsmineset.com/2013/06/24/chicago-vancouver-and-scottsdale-qa-session-tickets-still-available/ And he keeps posting messages urging you to Get Out of The System (GOTS) as quickly as possible. Just yesterday, he linked two articles which you really do need to take some time to consider:

https://www.leap2020.eu/GEAB-N-76-is-available-Alert-for-the-second-half-of-2013-Global-systemic-crisis-II-second-devastating-explosion-social_a14266.html &


There are items such as this, which I found at ZeroHedge: https://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/mid-year-digest/

And Chris Martenson, who I know to be a very wise and sober fellow, got into the act, too: https://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/82210/everything-being-sold

So here we are. Look, I don't know if the financial world is ending this week or next or even this year, but I do know that the current system is unsustainable. To that end, your only financial protection is the physical possession of gold and silver. Not paper derivatives. Not ETFs. Not a basket of mining stocks. Physical metal, in your own two hands.

For those of you upset about the current, eight-month decline of fiat-conversion value, I'm sorry. If having gold and silver consistently move higher in terms of dollars would make you feel more comfortable, I regret that that hasn't happened for you. If you are sitting upon unrealized losses which makes you feel uncomfortable, I apologize and I wish I could make it different for you. But I can't.

However, you need to remember that we live in extraordinary times. Those spouting disinformation about the future price of gold are either hopelessly misinformed or deliberately trying to mislead you. The global forces at work behind the scenes have been in control and remain in control of the paper metal market. The past eight months have been a coordinated effort to crush price, thereby freeing physical for immediate delivery and allowing The Bullion Banks to cover paper short positions, transferring the future risk and liability to the Specs. This has now been accomplished and I firmly believe that we are very near a price bottom.

One day, very soon, paper price will reverse and head higher. Then, one day in the future, paper price will no longer exist as price resets multiples higher with the emergence of a new global financial paradigm. Please understand: THIS IS NOT AN OPPORTUNITY FOR "PROFIT". This is simply an opportunity to protect and defend all that you have accumulated to this point in your life.

To that end and to personally prepare, I'm going to be taking a few days off. Over the next two weeks, I'll still post from time to time but I'll also be sharing some "guest posts" from a handful of your favorite site regulars. Then, come next month, I plan to make a few changes to the way we do things around here. Nothing earth-shattering but necessary changes, nonetheless.

In the meantime, stay alert. Now is not the time to be complacent. Trust your instincts and use your brain. Double-check that you have acquired enough physical metal and consider buying even more. The End of The Great Keynesian is upon us. Please continue to prepare accordingly.

You can just smell the fear on these boards. It doesn't matter to me one bit what the paper price of PMs are because I have been stacking FREE SILVER for months on end now. :) If you're creative it's really easy to fund your stack with little to no effort at all.

Damn you! You're ruining my new business-venture.

Say after me: "Trolls are good". "Trolls are nice". "We need trolls".

Excellent. Although you should have posted the tip about opening up another window for the pic above the analysis of the painting. I'm a little dizzy from scrolling up and down

Trolls and the MSM....Peas in a pod

After reading all of the posts over the last couple of days, I can’t help but draw an analogy between Turdville and Edward Snowden, comparing the trolls and the MSM.

First, let’s take a look at the Snowden Affair. It appears to me that Snowden risked his life to expose a criminally corrupt government operation for the benefit of all that will listen. Prism, by any objective measure, is illegal and unconstitutional. The ramifications of the data collection spell trouble for the entire world. The government has been using, and will continue to use this data for nefarious purposes, to stifle political opposition, rig elections, and squash anyone that might get in the way of their diabolical plan.

As the impact of this is being pondered by people the world over, along comes the MSM, not to instruct, but to obstruct. They are focusing on Snowden himself rather than the illegal PRISM program and the harm that it has done and may do to the people. We see a constant parade of news about Snowden being a spy, a traitor. They talk about where he is rather than the illegal actions of a corrupt government.

Where the MSM has had a huge chance to shine a light on the corruption that is destroying our republic, instead they have only killed the messenger. They are 100% complicit in perpetuating lies for the benefit of a few criminals, rather than fulfilling their obligation of freedom and fairness.

Turd, at great personal expense and effort, has built a community here unlike any other on the web. His goal has been to prepare honest people for a very dishonest outcome, the end of the Great Keynesian Experiment, which by any objective measure, is upon us. Not only has he risked his personal capital and effort, but he has risked his reputation trying to keep us informed of how all of this will play out. He has been right about a lot of things, and by his own admission, has also been wrong about a lot of things.

Why has he been wrong, because we are dealing with corruption at unimaginable levels. We have psychopaths in power, that rather than admitting they have failed, continue to rewrite the rules as we go to hang on to their ill-gotten power. They are willing to destroy capital, murder, wage war, discard the rule of law, all to perpetuate a dishonest and unfair system for one more day.

Along come the trolls in force, not to instruct, but to obstruct. They want you to believe that holding honest money in a dishonest system is wrong. That the reason you have arrived at this point is because Turd himself is dishonest, a traitor to the cause, that he somehow started this site to deceive you, and focus you on being angry at an honest man, rather than a dishonest system.

They want you to sell your metal and succumb to the forces of darkness and dishonest money, rather than focus on the criminal element that is so pervasive, they now commit History’s greatest crimes in broad daylight for all to see.

The trolls want you to blame Turd for the fact that your honest money has been smashed down in relation to dishonest money rather than the people who will lose power when dishonest money dies.

Are you willing to trade your freedom for “security” because Edward Snowden is a “traitor” as the MSM will tell you ad nauseum?

Are you willing to trade your real money for fake money, because Turd is a supposed “Liar”, as the trolls will tell you ad nauseum?

“Propaganda is as powerful as heroin; it surreptitiously dissolves all capacity to think.”

― Gil Courtemanche, A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali

All of the spouting by the trolls does not change the fact that history has proven that Gold and silver are money, everything else is debt. All of the spouting by the MSM about Snowden being a traitor does not change what history has proven is the outcome of a totalitarian state.

In a world where communications are so controlled by the evil doers, we must establish our own lines of communication to get the truth out. I can only imagine that the unprecedented amount of trolling these last couple of days means that Turd has established a very powerful vehicle for truth and it threatens the house of cards that is mathematically inevitable. Don’t give up your freedom for fraud and lies.

“The opportunity to secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.”

TEOTGKE means different things to different . . .


To me, it means that the current pure fiat system cannot continue because of the debt's inability to be serviced. We are seeing the bond market act up as we sit here. Nobody wants to buy U.S. debt or the debt of many countries world-wide.

That is why the Fed is forced to do QE, and if they taper at all, it will be to generate a scary deflationary scenario--much like the utterances of it by Bernanke did last week.

We are nearing the end, as the bond market attests. So is GLD, puking up its gold as investors vacate the PM paper. I think SLV is the same story, but unreported do to national security reasons, or whatever JPM concocts.

There will be a new financial system soon. The new C-note due on the scene in October may herald it. Maybe not. But the system is caving in, and they will need to act sooner than later, IMVHO.

They must kill off all paper PMs before or at the same time the new system is put on-line, if PMs are to play a role. There is no other way. Think about it.

Right now the banks can create unlimited gold and silver anytime they want by dumping it onto COMEX. That is paper. If that were to continue, the system would be no different than it is now.

Real gold and silver will need to be used as the final arbiter of debt. The prices you see today are to wring out as many people and paper holders as possible, and this is an absolute necessity.

They will never announce this, until after the fact. As people catch on (many did right after Cyprus Steal, and sold paper/bought phyzz), there will be more paper dumping and phyzz buying. after the announcement, gold and silver will not be avaiilable at any fiat price we deem normal today.

I believe this is what's coming. Hopefully, it can be a peaceful transition, but it may not be. That is the reason for other preps like food, water, shelter, protection. There is no time like the present.

And another thing

about Hammer's picture -- if you can swivel your eyes away from all that bare skin, the artist did an excellent job of capturing the ethnicities of the players. You can't see China's face, but the others perfectly represent their parts in the drama.

Did you ever wonder ... what if kids in China got tattoos of stupid words in English on them?

@ ag1969

Hat tip 2 U. If the MSM says bad stuff about Mr. Snowden, it amounts to less than a skid row bum saying that Mother Teresa was a hooker. It should instead be seen as a clean bill of health for Mr. Snowden. The MSM is an active part of the present government. The only thing I would take time to read or watch from the Marxist Socialist Media would be an announcement that 90% of their executives, journalists, reporters and talking heads would be burned in public as witches, bitches and warlocks. Their only function at present is as a cheerleader for the O’bummer régime. Their incessant refrain is aimed at those with the I.Q. of a piss-ant. Their goal is not to educate the idiots but to remind them since they are so prone to forget.

@ nixy re: Bankers henchmen at work in UK

Speaking as an ex-pat, I'm proud to see the restraint exercised by the police.

The devil is in the details, and the devil got ousted.

A very good video, and a laurel at the feet of "the pen being mightier than the sword."

Of course, the pen works both ways. Thankfully, this time it worked in favor of the "little people."
