Is India PROOF Elites Want To CONFISCATE GOLD? — Andy Hoffman

by SGT, SGT Report.com:

Andy Hoffman from Miles Franklin is back to help us break down REAL NEWS from the world of economics and precious metals. We examine the tyrannical moves in India to ban cash and SEIZE gold from citizens. Is this the model the globalists want to roll out in Western nations as well? Sure looks like it.

Help us spread the ANTIDOTE to corporate propaganda.

    Of course they want to confiscate your Gold. Just like they want to confiscate your guns, take your food, and eat your kids. Are you going to allow that to happen?

    SD Bullion got a clearance sale on ammo. Can’t get any in CA. Hope you guys take advantage of it.

    I’m calling a Gold bottom right here and now. $1140. Maybe 2 more days of this Central bank self induced suicide. Time to back up the truck, load up, and roll out.

      Right on @Eric

      TPTB have forced gold and silver prices to low levels so they can buy up as much as possible. Once they have reached that limit, their next move will be to steal all of the remaining PMs that they can. Once that has played out, it will be time to ban PMs in any hands but theirs and implement draconian laws against such ownership. All part of their plan, for sure, because this is what governments, including royalty and shadow types, do when they become sufficiently desperate. History abounds with examples of just these sorts of actions.

      So, each of us needs to ask ourselves a few VERY honest questions so that we can get some honest answers. First is, “Do I own any REAL money (aka gold and silver)?”. Next is, “Is it sufficiently well hidden that it is protected from thieves, whether of street or government origin?”. Third is, “Am I willing and able to do what is necessary to protect it via the use of direct physical force?”. Only each of us can answer such questions in the privacy of our own thoughts. But it would be wise of everyone to devote some time to thinking about such things… and then acting upon their conclusions.

      • Eric

        Ed,

        They’ll just raise the “royalty tax” as they have done in the past with the miners.

        But as for your questions only each of us can answer in our own private thoughts…

        “Do I own any REAL money (aka gold and silver)?”

        …We aren’t here to “own.” We’re here to “use.” But if that means I can take 1000 grams of Silver and still have leftover fiat for lunch and dinner for the family using one blipcoin, then yes I own REAL money (aka gold and silver). I’m just using it for now. 😉

        “Is it sufficiently well hidden that it is protected from thieves, whether of street or government origin?”

        …It is if you have used critical thinking skills and planned ahead for every scenario.

        “Am I willing and able to do what is necessary to protect it via the use of direct physical force?”.

        …Fuck Yeah. What do you think the guns are for? But NEVER EVER talk about your personal holdings. They should be locked away from where anyone but you and only those you want to know would ever find it.

        • Ed_B

          @Eric

          “They’ll just raise the “royalty tax” as they have done in the past with the miners.”

          Well, they can try that but with enough BS piled onto the miners, a point will be reached where they cannot stay in business. No royalty payments then.

          “We aren’t here to “own.” We’re here to “use.””

          OK, as long as we are picking nits, let’s BOTH have at it. IMO, own and use are two very different words. I currently OWN some PMs but I am NOT using them. Using would imply some kind of activity, such as trading or selling them. Owning them does not imply any activity, such as would occur when the PMs are simply parked in a safe, a hole in the ground, or some other secure location. 😉

          “It is if you have used critical thinking skills and planned ahead for every scenario.”

          I cannot lay claim to thinking of every possible scenario in which they might be at risk of loss, try as I might. I have given it a good run and considered many possibilities but perhaps not ALL of them. Perfection is good but I suggest that we are all still working on that. 😉

          “What do you think the guns are for?”

          I KNOW exactly what they are for. My question was to tweak people into thinking about whether or not they are willing to use them if push comes to shove. Some are, some aren’t, and the rest probably haven’t even considered the idea, even if they have a gun or two. This is something that MUST be considered BEFORE they are needed. During a confrontation is NOT the time to be mulling this over. That is a time for action, not spending time on figuring something out that should already be set in one’s mind.

          Cheers!

          • Eric

            My point of “owning” vs. “using” was simply to state that when one leaves this world, they are not allowed to take any physical object with them. It also reinforces my point that you are more than your physical body. Also, does one own something in a world where everything (including your body) has been collateralized to another party? As I’ve always said, possession is 9 points of the law. And if you don’t hold it, you don’t own it. But the Gold that I “own” will long outlive the body that I live within. I am simply using it for now, parking them in a safe for a later date in time. The activity of knowing they are where I put them provides enough security and reassurance that I will “use” them if needed, but if not, they will be “owned” or “used” by another after I have left this world. I don’t necessarily agree with you that it requires an activity.

            I am using this house to provide shelter, heat, comfort at the moment. But the property tax and mortgage payment assures me that I do not own it.

            use – to employ for some purpose; put into service; make use of: to use a knife.

            That all being said, I think I will now participate in an activity by using some Gold coins I have acquired to assure myself that that are packed tightly in a neat little brown box. Just in case and also because it’s fun. 😉

            • Ed_B

              OK, that is your choice. Me? I AM taking my gold and silver up to Heaven when I go. They might need some additional paving material up there. 😉

              Nothing that can be taxed can be owned. The proof of this lies in not paying the tribute… er, tax… and seeing what happens to YOUR property. We got a classic example locally of that last year. A man refused to pay his property tax. The sheriff was required by law to evict him, pay off the home loan, sell the property at auction, pay the tax owed, and remit the remainder to the previous “owner”. The new “owner” says that he will pay the tax in full and on time.

              But, WTF? One HAS to live somewhere. Some places cost more, some cost less, but all cost us something.

              • Eric

                “I AM taking my gold and silver up to Heaven when I go. They might need some additional paving material up there.”

                • Craig Escaped Detroit

                  @Eric & Ed-B,
                  There are at least 2 documented, researched & verified stories of people who talked about their “previous life” in the other village or city, (but in this life, had never been near it), and they had enough recall, that they eventually went “back there”, and gave enough PROOF-information to the still surviving friends & family, to back up the story of their ‘reincarnation’.. AND, they remembered where they had buried their own little stash of GOLD.

                  They dug it up, it was FOUND, and it was shared. So yes, there may be no such thing as “heaven”, and you still cannot “take it with you”,,, but there are SOME people who were able to COME back and GET it!!!!

                  Even in the “Bible”, there are several situations etc that show reincarnation (but that “word” is never used). In 2 of the “gospels”, is a conversation/situation where Jesus is talking with his disciples about John the Baptist, and Jesus says: “and if you will receive it, this (he) is Elias who was fore to come. … and then the disciples understood (not misunderstood) that HE was talking about John the Baptist.

                  Another place, where the disciples ASK Jesus “Why was this man BORN BLIND, was it from his parent’s sin or from his OWN SIN?” DUH, if he did NOT exist before his own birth, then HOW could he be suffering punishment from HIS OWN SINS? (Obviously, since JESUS could READ minds, he knew exactly the thinking behind the question and NEVER discounted such thinking.)

                  It would have been the perfect time to “debunk” such ideas, but he allowed it to stand. (obviously because to his disciples he taught ALL things, and to the common people he spoke in Parables.) So the disciples would have known about reincarnation exactly because it was part of their secret teachings, and this question of the man’s “born sin or parent’s sin, does reflect on their teachings from Jesus.)

                  There are plenty more…so if your mind comes up with clever “dodges” for these examples, it ain’t gonna be enough.

                  Even something so “obscure” such as “Ye shall reap what you sow”, & “One man sows and another man reaps.” Both of those can be literally true at the same time if you add “reincarnation” to the equation. A person “sows” things during their lifetime, and when they come back, they get the rewards or punishments from their previous life…so ONE man “sowed” it and another man “reaped” it, but it was the same “soul”, so he truly “reaped what he sowed”.

                  (not sure if one of these researched items was published in the book “12 cases suggestive of reincarnation” or some other publication.)

                  “I would very much like to see that.”

                  And so you shall. But the REAL worth and value of this life lies not in the physical aspects of it but in the spiritual aspects of it. We CAN take that which is truly most valuable: good memories, shares times with those whom we love, great experiences, and the love and friendship of family and friends. All this has GREAT value in the next life and not the crude physical items that so many here on Earth lust after. 🙂

                  Everything has its time and place where it is necessary and valued.

                • Ed_B

                  @Craig

                  Actually, there are many near death experiences and recounts of things that many believe are not possible. Some of us do remember small snippets of prior lives, although often not in great detail. When we do recall such incidents, we know them to be true regardless of what others demand as “proof”.

                  Our lives on Earth are all about learning and growing spiritually. On the higher levels of consciousness (which some call Heaven), it is all about knowing and it is our experience that will determine just how much of the universal knowledge that exists will flow into us and at which stages of our development it does so. We will get what we can handle when we can handle it and no more than that.

                  Some of us have had genuine religious / spiritual experiences. Many of these are recorded and put on-line so that others can read them and consider their value. I had an aunt who died, went to “heaven”, interacted with people there, and returned to Earth. She was in a severe car accident that killed her 5 year old son and slightly injured some of her other family members. She was badly injured herself. She recalled quite vividly everything that happened to her upon her spirit leaving her mangled body, where people were in the OR and in the rest of the hospital, what their names were, and what they were saying and doing. She was not a particularly religious person but she was someone who was honest and truthful. If she said it, it happened. She only ever told my mom about this because they were close. She said that it was too private and sacred to share with anyone else. Years later, my mom told me the story and said that she believes that it was a real occurrence. She knew her sister well and would know if she was making this up. That she was reluctant to discuss it says to me that it actually happened and that she was not just doing this to get attention.

                  Many books have been written about out of body experiences, near death experiences, reincarnation, and other aspects of our spiritual lives. Life is VERY complex. Far more so than we here on Earth appreciate. We all contain 3 aspects of life: a physical body that allows us to interact with each other and everything in this world, a mind that allows us to learn, know, remember, and consider many things, and a spirit that lives on after the body is destroyed by time, disease, war, or accident that also retains all that we ever learned. Much of this is masked from us while we are here on Earth so that prior experiences do not affect our new experiences. We live each life as a separate chapter in the book of our spiritual life and our ability to do this would be decreased if details of previous lives impacted our current life.

                  All aspects of the spirit are not provable in scientific terms because they are issues of faith. Faith cannot be proved because if it is, then there is no room for it. It is essential that in this existence, we all either have faith, learn to have it, or at least understand what it is. If we can do that, then we can see its value. Even its tiniest aspects are far more valuable than some can imagine. But they will, in time, when they are ready. Not everyone is ready to accept that which cannot be proved but which must be taken on faith. This is one of the great lessons of life that many will struggle with before having their “moment of clarity” on this issue.

                  Science is a tool. It’s the very best tool that we have for understanding our universe. But it is still a creation of fallible human beings and therefore prone to all of the errors of fallible human beings. It was meant to organize, understand, and derive the truth of our physical universe, which it does pretty well. It was never meant to prove or disprove the metaphysical aspects of life, so we should not be at all surprised when it does not. Put simply, it does not because it can not. It still has considerable value but that value is in the here and now and not in the hereafter.

    It’s funny that so many guess at this scratching their heads trying to time it perfectly while the rest of us kick back and just ride the Gold wave while the price is at extreme oversold and suppressed levels.

      @Eric

      IMO, the question of “when” is a red herring argument that controlled opposition to gold and silver are using to confuse and delay people from doing what is in their best interests… namely buying some gold and silver to protect their wealth from the vultures that want it for themselves. “When” is irrelevant to those of us who KNOW that the S will HTF at some point and that gold and silver will be our ONLY financial protection from the mess that follows. I’ve been buying silver for the past 6 years and gold for about 2 years. I tend to buy one or the other about 3-4 times per year. I buy a little more when prices dip and a little less when they rise but I am always buying some. If we are as well prepared for the SHTF time as we can be, we don’t really care when it happens. It is only those who want to sit on their @$$ and not do anything until the very last minute who really get their knickers in a knot over “when”. You should see the looks I get when I tell people this. lol

        But I still prefer to keep at least 50% of my life’s savings at this point in GOLD and not just treat it as “insurance.” Gold is the money of Kings!

        But I have no intention of ruling a kingdom. That’s why I prefer Silver. 😉

        It’s the achille’s heal of the Satanic Washington Federal Scum, the London/CME vampire banksters, and the Devil, but also the money of fine gentle men and women.

          “You’re a lot like my Dad Ed. But not as bad.”

          Lol! Maybe you just know your Dad a lot better than you do me? 😉

          The salient point about gold is that it’s been money for more than 4,000 years and in every human culture that has discovered it. Same for silver, which has another 1,000 or so years on top of what gold has as money. Even cultures that did not use money still used barter and gold and silver jewelry and other items made from gold and silver had to have been part of that.

          Today, gold is no longer “money” in official terms. Neither is silver. Yet, when one travels and visits various places around the world, it would be difficult to find a lot of places that do not recognize the value inherent in these metals. Asia has a long and rich history, including monetary history, and Asians tend to know that gold and silver are superior forms of money. Currency failure is not unknown to them, so neither is the desire to protect themselves from it.

          For now, my PMs ARE just financial insurance. When the SHTF, they will become MUCH more than just that. I am glad that they are not more than that now because if I thought of them that way, I might be tempted to do something foolish with them… like sell them and blow the money on something fun but useless… like a pristine 1966 Pontiac GTO with the 389 V8, four on the floor, and three ducers sucking the fuel in. Oh, yeah, can’t forget the 4.11 gears either. 😉

          https://youtu.be/dIaHqiCNMXI

          Personally, I find it very cool that there are so many valid ways of looking at PMs. That makes it interesting for a lot of people to participate in collecting them.

          • Eric

            Ed, I didn’t mean that to sound degrading in any way of course. I have a lot of respect for you. Granted my income situation at the moment continues to work for me whereas I realize for others who are older and have already served their time, their income might be limited. This would of course justify a large cash position where I cannot do so keeping my hard earning life savings in mostly cash at this point knowing what I know.

            I see Gold as honest money with limited downside in price. If you see it as financial insurance for when the SHTF then you are quite possibly in good shape.

            However, I find it much easier to buy something foolish with cash or credit than I do with Gold. And when I don’t have the credit, I wait because I can’t do it right now. How long have I been talking about a truck or a van on here?

            Once the Gold goes in the vault, it doesn’t come out to get “sold” or “used” unless I just want to look and cherish it.

            Remember you don’t sell Gold. Gold is money. But you can exchange it for currency and buy a classic car. Nothing foolish about the car IMO, but to sell or even exchange Gold to do so is rather foolish. As a wise old man Jim Rogers said once, “You don’t sell Gold.”

            official (adj.) Look up official at Dictionary.com
            late 14c., “performing a service; required by duty,” from Old French oficial “official; main, principal” (14c., Modern French officiel) or directly from Late Latin officialis “of or belonging to duty, service, or office,” from Latin officium (see office). Meaning “pertaining to an office or official position” is from c. 1600.

            I do not require an “official” definition of money. I only need to know history and the qualities and characteristics that have made Gold money for thousands of years. It simply is what already is.

              @Eric

              “I didn’t mean that to sound degrading in any way of course.”

              No problem, man, I did not take it that way at all. Just saying that it is easier to understand the people we know well and not so easy to pick up on the fine points of others whom we have never met face to face. I get a lot of info from body language, facial expressions, and voice tones so prefer to speak with people face to face rather than over the phone. Internet comms are not even as informative as are phone calls, so there is plenty of room to misunderstand someone else. I’m easy going so don’t assume the worst about anyone… although, I might make an exception for one or two on here. But you’re not one of them! 🙂

              Agree on gold (and silver too!). They ARE honest money. When coin weight and metal purity standards are met, they provide honest payment for goods and services that fiat paper cannot. Inflation melts away the “value” of paper money. This is why we can’t go out to a nice steak dinner for $1, where once people could do just that. Even more recently, a lot of us older folks well remember buying a big juicy hamburger or a gallon of gas for two bits. But that was a US 90% silver quarter. Such a quarter is now worth about $3. Gas costs less than that now, so silver has bested inflation on that front. One can still find a hamburger for $3 but it won’t be the best one out there, so in this case silver has mostly kept up with inflation. Paper money? Not even close.

              One does sell gold IF one needs the cash for something important. Thankfully, I don’t have to worry about that. I have plenty of fiat to pay my bills and a good amount of gold and silver for whatever comes next. If gold and silver won’t handle the coming problems, brass and lead will. Hopefully, it won’t come to that but if it does, so be it.

              “How long have I been talking about a truck or a van on here?”

              It’s been quite a while. I know because I was looking for a specific truck for myself and was not able to find one at a reasonable price. Since I was also considering an SUV, I was able to find one of those at a reasonable price and bought it. So far, so good. We’re enjoying it and it is working well for us.

              Official money definition? No, I don’t need that either but was just describing how the world works today from the gubmint point of view. Not that their view is terribly important but one does have to keep an eye on what those crooks are up to or they will do all manner of dumb things to the unwary.

              @Ctricman,
              Yes, quite a lot of us get misty eyed about the old muscle cars, the way they sounded, etc.
              I’ve had a few back in the day (’69 Chevy Impala convertible w/327, steel crank, and mid rise, etc), and had a ’70 or ’71 Boss Mustang, and my last one, was a ’48 fat-fendered Ford coupe w/327 Chevy also.
              If I ever get another ‘ROD’, I’d prefer a 30’s or 40’s with something modern under the hood to get great economy, and not need all kinds of lead substitutes.

              But, if I wanted POWER & speed, I’d get something that goes from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds, but makes NO more noise than a MOPED. (Electric motors on each wheel instead of a noisy, gas guzzler V8). Whisper quiet, electric drive motors blows the doors, trunk and hood off of all the old style muscle cars of the 60’s & 70’s. But I do agree that there is a “romanticism” about the sound and feel of an old gas guzzler muscle car, even if they don’t hold a candle against a snappy, quiet electric drive.

              I’m not a genius mechanic, (that’s my neighbor), but I’m certainly above average. I even hand lapped a crankshaft outside on my driveway, then did the “plasti-gauge” tolerance test, installed main bearings (1/1000th over), and didn’t even need to get the crank “turned down”, swapped motors with a cherry picker, rebuilt and swapped a 5.25 ring and pinion, down to a 4:11 on a pair of C30 step vans (should have gone to something in the 3.8 ratio for better economy).

              Had an interesting “problem”, a GM rear end axle, the wheel bearing wore a groove in the shaft, nobody had any used ones, and the new ones (’75 Cadillac Seville ) was outrageously high. I found a welding shop that welded / padded up the groove, and then had a grinding shop, do an O.D. grind to bring it back down to spec, all for less than $100. Was good as new. (a new one from the dealer, was about $400 or more?, and it was far out of date, they didn’t know if they could find one)

                CED,

                Reading your muscle car comment made me a little nostalgic and yes electric motors rev higher faster along with more torque.When the shift from internal combustion to total electric occurs,I’m sure the new(electric) motor heads will be cranking out some equally bad ass electric muscle.

                It was was a sweet driver along with the audiovox AM/FM 8 track stereo w/six speakers,blasting some Credence,Doobie Bros,Allman Bros,etc.I drove it for almost 4 years and sold it for more than I paid for it.I saw a total restoration of one on line a couple years ago that sold for 10 times what it was going for brand new back in 1970,over 30K.

                I sold it when I got married.My son told me I was nuts,should have kept the car and stayed single….HaHa.kids,what do they know anyway!I know my son wishes he could be driving it around.

            • Ed_B

              That would be a sweet ride too, as would a Buick GS from that same era. 🙂

              • glitter 1

                Ed_B,

                Yes, that 71/72 Buick GS w/455 was sweet and bad.I almost bought one new from the factory,but changed my mind when the dealer told me the new 1973’s were totally redesigned with the reduced HP to meet emissions,well that ended that.

                • Ed_B

                  Lol @glitter

                  The new models getting de-tuned for emissions would make me want to have a prior model even more! 😀

                  Bad as the mid-70s cars were, the 80s cars were pretty bad too. I can’t think of a single car from either of those periods that I would really like to own. They got better at engineering them in the 1990s, though. Some decent cars came from that time period and later.

                  My 1999 Eldorado is an amazing car. It’s fast. The rpms just build and build in the Northstar V8 engine. It puts out good power but can also sip gas on a long drive. I drove it to Lincoln City, OR a couple of months ago. This was a round trip of about 272 miles. I filled up in town, made the trip, and filled up again when I returned. Took 9.6 gallons of gas for 28.3 mpg. Not at all bad for a 4,000 lb car that is very comfy. The 5-spd auto trans with OD helps a lot when on the highway. 🙂

                • Craig Escaped Detroit

                  @Ed-B, I remember well those Northstar V8 engines. I had been transferred to some prototype & final certification department that was doing the Northstar engines at the Cadillac main plant in Detroit. It was my job to keep track of inventory of the first batch of test & crash certification engines & transmissions. The crash dummy engines & transmissions were (separately) valued at about $100-$130K BACK THEN.

                  The fully running running pieces were a lot higher priced. I had quite a few discussions with various engineers, executives and mechanics. The Northstar was a FORD Lotus system, and GM bought the rights for it, modified it (and cheapened it). The overhead cams had NO bearings, and it rested directly on the aluminum that the heads were made of. (Not rebuild-able), but it saved money & machine work, etc.

                  The piston rings (to achieve greater MPG), were made so thin (“low friction” they called it), that they had to make them a bit THICKER because they were “self-welding” themselves to the pistons as well as breaking and scoring cylinders & destroying engines.

                  They were “peppy-zippy” engines, but don’t dare open them up, or buy a used one.

                  The HT4100 was another great engine that was a disaster waiting for anybody who opened it up or bought a used Cadillac.

                  One “trick” the company pulled (to save money), was they tried eliminating the HEAT TREATMENT of the cast iron CAM SHAFT. There was a LOT of NEW Cadillacs that the cam LOBES wore down to NOTHING during the first 6,000 miles, sometimes as little as 4K miles, always within the “warranty period”. DEALERSHIPS were screaming bloody murder over having to SWAP out engines in SO many recently sold cars, that we were chartering Boeing 747’s to fly cargo loads of NEW engines to California for dealers to SECRETLY swap engines, (the customer’s engines were starting to run “rough” as some of the cam lobes wore down, or were totally GONE, so the dealer would tell the customer “it’s a SMALL problem”, we’ll keep your car for a few days and fix it”… and the dealer would SECRETLY SWAP a NEW engine into the car!!!)

                  There were HUNDREDS of customers who got NEW engines that also did NOT have heat treated cams, and those cars came BACK again to the dealerships for ANOTHER SECRET SWAP. It took about 6 months of this disaster, until the company re-instituted the heat treatment process of all camshafts on the HT4100 and the 4.9L engines.

                  Another “cost saving measure”, not sure if it was the HT4100, and or the 4.9L, but the “fly-wheel” (ring gear), used to have 5 bolts holding it to the rear of the crankshaft. Guess what? For a period of time, they modified it so they were only installing THREE bolts to hold the flywheel/ring-gear onto the crankshaft.

                  Guess what happens when you have only 3 bolts and one of them fails or comes loose? The entire assembly fails massively. Eventually, they went back either to 4 or 5 bolts again. I think it was five.

                  Hahahaha. There’s more, but you get the idea. (I think I previously told about how the PROPER way to replace a $40 intake or exhaust valve, would cost more than $3,000-$5,000 to do it the “proper” way on the 4.9L,, didn’t I?)

                  To keep the motor from losing “seal” between the cylinder sleeves and mixing oil and anti-freeze together, you had to remove all the pistons, cylinder sleeves, intake, heads, etc, replace the bad valve, and then re-clean/ream the bottom of the free-floating cylinder sleeves and install a new “O-ring” gasket, then reinstall all the pistons, heads, new head bolts, etc.

                  If you didn’t do it like this, (and the dealers did NOT do this), they merely tried to get LUCKY and leave the NOW LEAKY engine together, and toss in a bunch of “radiator stop leak pellets”, and send the customer on his way and pray the car did not come back or get sued.

          The US Dollar isn’t backed by Gold. Why would they do it? How much do you think they would get? 3 tons? Maybe 4? They have no reason to outlaw or “make illegal” Gold or Silver in the US. Do you think that would send a signal to the markets that something could be wrong with the US Dollar?

          Now that we have established that you are dumber than a bag of hammers, widely ignorant, have never thought about these things, and were oblivious when we were discussing them over the past 5 years, and now that we know that you have never read the coinage act of 1792, the Constitution of the United States of America, and that you have never picked up Black’s Law Dictionary, what books do you read Millicent?

              @Willy

              “… does not take into account that the us treasury mints that legal tender and not the feral reserve skanks.”

              True… as far as it goes. But it is the Fed that ORDERS the US Treasury’s Bureau of Engraving to print the currency, not the congress, not the president, and not the treasury. Somehow, this power was given to the Fed even though there is not one shred of mention in the US Constitution that delegating such power is in any way legal. But like a lot of things in US law, if it is not challenged in court, it stands as law until it is and the challenge is upheld by the US Supreme Court. Same goes for FDR and his now-infamous EO 6102 that was used to “call in the gold”. That was not challenged in court either… and it should have been challenged.

      • Hugo

        Hi Eric,

        The original, constitutional, currency of America is based on pricefixing between gold and silver (ratios). Recepy for disaster and that was the why it failed. Another reason it failed it was because it allowed people to go into gold and silver debt. As history proves, that leads to the building up of debts that cannot be paid back since that is what people, business and governments love, get more and more now (and thus go in debt) and that ends in disaster. It also leads to fractional reserve banking in gold and silver because of the nature of double entry bookkeeping. One more recepy for disaster. Last but not least, using it as money leads to lower! value of gold and silver since of the circulation speed. Thats why I think fiat as currency is fine.

        As long as savers dont save fiat, who cares about the value of that stuff? The money concept we, mostly in the west, use is corrupt. Indians (among others) understand it way better then we. Currency (fiat) is for spending, money (gold and to a lesser degree silver) is for saving. The people who have done that in India had way less hassle from Mody his actions then the ones who did not. If you look at the super long gold price evolution in Rupee you see it hyperinflated against gold but they still use them Rupees for payment.

        I hope I made some sense.

        Regards, Hugo

        • Eric

          Hugo,

          It’s not Gold, Silver, a Gold Standard, or a bimetallic standard which fails. But paper money which all goods and services are denominated in which fails every time. 3400 fiat currencies have all gone to zero. Gold has not. Gold would still be only $20.67/oz. but for fractional Reserve banking which allows banks to create 90% of new currency out of thin air while only maintaining 10% as reserves. Otherwise the monetary base would grow at the same rate as the population and the annual Gold supply.

          Fiat currency would be fine if there is sufficient trust in the population to accept it for value and the debt cannot grow faster than the money supply. Yet even GDP is a false measurement of growth since it is measured by spending and not production.

          Please don’t confuse “value” for “price.” Gold is vastly undervalued based on the monetary base, debt levels, Federal Reserve’s balance sheet etc. it is also underpriced from its fair value but everything trades on a market denominated in these unbacked currencies.

          • Hugo

            Eric,

            Ofcouse its not the metal itself that fails. It is the standards that fail and always do. Just as the fiat systems that fail. Human nature makes it that both fail. Ofcourse fiat first, bimetallic second and gold or silver last but fail they will. Otherwise we would still have the Roman (or older) currencies! A nice thing to study is the arbitrage that happend back then when the US was still on the bimetallic standard. It costed America(ns) big time.

            As I stated in my previous post, your statement about fiat holding its value is not needed for it to be used. It is the most gold loving nation on earth. Back in 1973 an ounce costed near nothing expressed (around 50) in Rupees. Now it costs around 80000 rupees. Still the Indians use fiat rupees in daily commerce, not gold (nor silver). They spend fiat and save in gold. A very pragmatic solution so the debtors and savers do not clash like they do here in EUrope since the debts of Southern EUrope are the savings of the Northern part.

            I have a nice rule of thumb for you in the price vs value discussion. If government promotes that kind of investment it tends to have a higher price then its true value, if government discourages it it is probably undervalued.

            Regards,
            Hugo

            • Eric

              Thus Gresham’s law.

              • Hugo

                No, a reconfiguration of the money concept, the current one is a curse for around 600 years. Human nature wont allow for the money concept we now have. It goes beyond Gresham. Money being a both debt and saving is not sustainable and puts debtors agains creditors and a cause of tension for around 600 years. Yes, the elites know they have to cure that contradiction if they want to have a world government and the likes. One of the few good concepts they developed I think.

  • dcm

    Currency was developed to steal money from the beginning . I fully understand the principals of Baruch Spinoza & Immanuel Kant . Why not try and post something to the contrary. Especially as this is the fifteenth day of Advent. How about an exposay of St. Eusebius of Vercelli his feast day being tomorrow.
    “When I visited the Coliseum I was shown the small prison where martyrs spent their last night before entering the arena. They spent the night there praying and waiting for morning when they would be a spectacle for the populace. The prison was near the cages of the beasts, so that all night the famished animals could smell the human flesh and snarl in anticipation of eating them. It was a terrible suffering.

    In the day-to-day life, however, there are tragic and most difficult sufferings that can be compared to those of the martyrs in the Coliseum. Indeed, for one to be ridiculed by his own family and friends because he is a Catholic who does not compromise, to be criticized by the clergy as unfaithful when he is fighting against Progressivism to save the Church, to be despised by his supervisors and set aside in his career because he is a counter-revolutionary – these are some of the moral sufferings we are called to support. To bear this day after day, year after year, without making concessions to error and the Revolution, can be compared to martyrdom.” Pray for us St Eusebius

  • dcm

    —–Bringing light to this vary dark place —–The rest of historical fact ———-
    St. Eusebius of Vercelli – December 16

    Eusebius (283-371) was a native of Sardinia, Italy. His father was said to have died a martyr. After that his mother moved to Rome where Eusebius spent his childhood and became a lector.

    Later, he went to Vercelli, in the Piedmont, where he served the church so well that he was chosen to be the first Bishop of the city. He took part in a council in Milan in 355, convened by Emperor Constantius, who was at Arles in Gaul. Supported by the Emperor, the Arian bishops planned to condemn St. Athanasius as a heretic at this synod.

    St. Eusebius, Bishop of Vercelli
    St. Eusebius, along with St. Dionysius, strongly opposed this unjust condemnation. The Emperor tried to oblige St. Eusebius to sign it, but he vehemently refused. As a result, he was sent into exile, first to Scythopolis in Palestine. There he was persecuted by the Arian bishop Patrophilus, who ordered St. Eusebius to be imprisoned and denied him food for some time. The Arians also dragged him half-naked through the streets, mocking and insulting him.

    Later, he was exiled to Cappadocia and then, finally, to Thebaid in Upper Egypt. During all these trials he remained militant in defense of the true Faith, corresponding with other Bishops and exhorting them to be faithful.

    When Constantius died in the year 361, the new Emperor Julian allowed all the exiled Prelates to return to their sees. St. Eusebius went to Alexandria to consult with St. Athanasius about convoking a synod, which in 362 was held there under their joint leadership.

    At its close, he went to Antioch and Illyricum, confirming in the Faith those who were wavering and bringing back those who had gone astray. In 363 he returned to Italy, where he assisted the zealous champion of the fight against Arianism in the Western Church, St. Hilary of Poitiers. Finally he returned to Vercelli after a long absence, where he died on August 1, 371.

    Because of the sufferings for the Faith he endured during his life, the Church honors him with the title of martyr.

    Comments of Prof. Plinio:

    The Church considered St. Eusebius a martyr even though he did not die as such. The selection mentions some of his sufferings. He endured moral and physical suffering of all kinds: pressure from the Emperor, insults from the Arian bishops, exile, and persecution. He was dragged through the streets, thrown in jail and left without food. He faced an organized campaign of calumnies and persecutions that transformed his life into one of ignominy, a true martyrdom.

    We see in his life the ferocity of the enemies of the Church against those who truly serve her. This gives us a criterion to discern who is a true son of the Church.

    Unfortunately we do not always recognize who is a true son of the Church. Our Lord said in the Gospel that the sons of darkness are shrewder and more astute than the sons of light. But there is a pattern that the sons of darkness always instinctively follow that we can discern.

    • When they praise someone in the Catholic ranks, this person is not good.

    • When they attack someone on the Catholic front, we have to distinguish if it is a tactic to give prestige to one of their allies, or if it is an attack to destroy. In the latter case, we can be sure that the assailed person is good.

    If we make these distinctions carefully, we can discern who is good or bad. But generally speaking, when a person is attacked by the sons of darkness, it is because he is good.

    The life of St. Eusebius is a clear example of this rule. He was a man with many qualities and virtues that deserved all praise. Instead, after the first phase of his life in Vercelli, he was hated with ferocity because he was a true son of the Church.

    His life also shows us that the enemies do not hate us for our defects. They don’t care about defects. They hate us because we represent the light, and they hate light, truth, virtue, and goodness. They do not admire any of our qualities or virtues. They hate them insofar as they serve the good cause. They only make eulogies of us when they want to buy us.

    I remember a very good Catholic whose spiritual life began to decline. When he would meet some enemy of the Church, he would receive eulogies. After many such praises from different persons, he – who knew this rule well – commented to me: “I must be in a bad state, because I am receiving eulogies from the sons of darkness.” He realized his misstep and returned to the good path.

    Another lesson we can take from the life and death of St. Eusebius is how the Church recognizes that moral sufferings can be equal or superior to martyrdom. In the history of the martyrs, we are rightfully impressed reading about such terrible sufferings as being dilacerated and devoured by a lion, tiger or panther.

    When I visited the Coliseum I was shown the small prison where martyrs spent their last night before entering the arena. They spent the night there praying and waiting for morning when they would be a spectacle for the populace. The prison was near the cages of the beasts, so that all night the famished animals could smell the human flesh and snarl in anticipation of eating them. It was a terrible suffering.

    In the day-to-day life, however, there are tragic and most difficult sufferings that can be compared to those of the martyrs in the Coliseum. Indeed, for one to be ridiculed by his own family and friends because he is a Catholic who does not compromise, to be criticized by the clergy as unfaithful when he is fighting against Progressivism to save the Church, to be despised by his supervisors and set aside in his career because he is a counter-revolutionary – these are some of the moral sufferings we are called to support. To bear this day after day, year after year, without making concessions to error and the Revolution, can be compared to martyrdom.

    We have to endure many of these sufferings during our lives. We should remember that it is proper for an apostle to undergo torments comparable to what the martyrs suffered in the Coliseum. To be an apostle of the Counter-Revolution implies torments that can be compared to those of martyrdom. We should love this martyrdom and value it as the greatest honor of our lives. Because it is through suffering that our blood can be mixed with the infinitely precious Blood of Our Lord to assist in the salvation of souls.

    Therefore, we should understand that it is normal for Our Lady to send us sufferings. It is also understandable that these sufferings at times be terrible. When they come, we should have prepared our souls so that we are not shocked or surprised. We should be ready to accept the great moral sufferings to be faithful to Our Lady.

    Let us ask St. Eusebius to give us the grace to understand the value of this moral martyrdom and to give us an enthusiasm for it. Except for prayer, there is nothing more valuable in life than suffering.

    Folks who totally divested from the stock market and bought gold and silver at historic highs back in 2011 have sadly experienced considerable declines to their store of value, up to 40% and 75% respectively. No doubt precious metals will rebound at some point, as all markets go up and down. It is important to recognize that the speaker’s views are based on self interest. After all he is in the gold and silver business. No one has a lock on the future and it is important to take an independent, balanced and diversified approach to wealth management. There is a time for all asset classes and not all markets (e.g. real estate) are the same in all places. Do your homework and don’t be taken in by extreme positions, be it doom and gloom or unrestrained optimism. Beware of inerrancy, it’s bad for your health and pocket!!!

    When I look at how the “prices” of gold & silver have ‘fallen’ from their peak levels, I am not sad.

    Even for those sad Venezuelans & Indians who bought & kept their PM’s…are now VERY happy they have PM’s instead of Bolivars or Rupees.

    Some people think that ‘dollars, pounds or euros’ are the best forms of ‘money’ to accumulate…they don’t know they’ve been robbed until it’s too late. I bought some silver when it was over $35/oz…yet I have not lost a single penny because I still have those ounces. Right now, a person in Venezuela would be Happy to have some of those $35-silver ounces because each of them can buy several months worth of food.

    Indians who are stuck with some ‘life savings’ of now worthless-voided-fiat-paper-notes would be happy to have some of those $35 silver ounces.

    I am protected from that kind of fate. And I am quite sure that North America, UK, Europe, & Aussies will all learn the Zimbabwe/India/Venezuela Lessons within the next 2-10 years, and it could happen in less than 1 year.

    It can happen as slow as Venezuela, or as swiftly as Cyprus or India.

    BE READY OR BE COMPOST.

    Why they will NEVER confiscate GOLD/SILVER in North America…..2nd amendment in the USA and the abolished gun registry here in Canada. To quote a great American patriot. “From my cold dead hands!!!!!”

        Yup agree Eric. That is still our biggest Ace in the hole. It is still the Elite’s biggest fear. Not the military, not ISIS, not Al Qaeda, not Syria, not Iran. It is the guns in the hands of the citizens. To quote Gerald Celente…when people have nothing to lose, they lose it!!!!

          Just a rough estimate and totally guessing here but if each round is about 1/4 ounce on average, that is about 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition.

          But that’s just in one year and still more than the 1.6 billion hollow point rounds DHS bought a few years ago.

          They might actually be waking up.

            @Eric, while it’s true that 22LR ammo is very light weight, the rifle & shotgun ammo, weighs more than one ounce each.

            As it pertains to the “bullet” (slug, shot, ball, etc), reloaders SHOULD know that there are 437.5 “grains” per ounce. So a 45acp cartridge with a 240 grain bullet means that the bullet by itself weighs more than 1/2 ounce. The shell casing is not quite as heavy as the “ball”.

            Rifle rounds, such as a 30-30, 30-06, etc, often use a slug/bullet that weighs 170 grains. (almost 1/3 ounce), and the brass is heavier than the slug.

            223 ammo, slugs are typically either 55 grains or as much as 70 grains, and the brass is heavier.

            Shotgun ammo, certainly weighs more than one ounce. The birdshot, slugs, etc, normally weighs more than one ounce, then you add the casing, shotcup/spacer, etc.

            So, in the end, including all the 22LR ammo along with all the 223, 7.62’s, shotgun ammo, I’d reduce your 2.2 billion round estimate, probably more likely to be about 500 million rounds?
            That’s still a LOT of deterrent.

    They are too arrogant to do the math. Good job!

    Either way, 2017 is “The big Bang” year…

      “Either way, 2017 is “The big Bang” year…”

      It COULD be. But then again, we have all been fooled before by what looked like the time for a collapse but wasn’t. 2008 came within a whisker of it, though.

      I agree with those who say that the next collapse opportunity will be much worse than 2008, though. None of the things that led to the 2008 market / housing collapse was really fixed. It was merely papered over with very cheap currency. All of the cracks in the foundation of our financial system are still there. Some have even grown larger. There won’t be any near-miss kind of collapse when next this happens because it will happen faster and stronger such that the financial system will collapse before sufficient action can be taken to prevent it. Not sure when this will happen. It could be in 2017 but 2018 seems like the odds-on favorite for it, IMO. There’s no proof either way, so I’m going on gut instinct and 40 years of market experience here. Got preps?
