Exploding Reasons To Own Precious Metals

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

As I sit down to write on this “President’s Day,” I can’t help but consider how diluted the stature – and goodness – of the Presidential Office has become. And this has nothing to do with Donald Trump personally, but the fact that essentially everything the post- Financial […]

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

It’s been more than three months since the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average” declined more than 1% in a day, and a year since a 5% correction – BrExit, Trump, and all. According to “soft data” surveys like “consumer sentiment,” Americans have never been more “bullish.” Moreover, equity valuations […]

How Not To Do Due Diligence

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Why should one own Precious Metals, you ask? Pure and simple, to protect wealth from the inevitability of financial crises; destructive governments; and based on hundreds, if not thousands, of instances throughout history – the destruction of fiat currencies that are continually re-introduced into naïve, compliant societies. Naïve […]

Fear Dissemination, Fud, And Reality

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Someone I greatly respect in the alternative media, constantly warns of people “peddling fear dissemination” to sell products – which naturally, include the ultimate crisis protection assets, Precious Metals. He is one of the most optimistic people I know – which is for the most part, a very […]

If A Nuclear Bomb Destroyed Europe, Part IV

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Last week, former Goldman Sachs banker and current Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said “in many respects, we’re coming to the last seconds of central bankers’ 15 minutes of fame…which is a good thing.” Which I couldn’t agree with more, despite said “15 minutes” lasting more than 100 […]

I Have Never Done This Before!

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Yes, I know…it’s a very provocative title – which I’ll get to momentarily. However, in the context of its subject – the desperation of the collapsing “powers that be” to preserve a dying status quo; in which the “1%” maintain the world’s power and wealth, at the expense of […]

A Nation-And World-Divided

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

On Saturday, I wrote of how I was “overwhelmed by PM-bullish, everything-else-bearish” news; and just 48 hours later, I’m feeling more overwhelmed than ever – as not only is today’s principal topic of the utmost importance to those considering the urgency of PROTECTING themselves, but so are a handful […]

Executive Order

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Today, let’s start with how pathetically fickle, and predictable, America’s electorate has become – in the final, malignant stage of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme. Which I’m sure is no different than that of any modern “democracy”; which I write in “quotes,” given how, per today’s principal […]

Feast Or “Famine”

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Just 24 hours ago, for the first time I can remember, I was on the verge of sitting down to write without a single item of focus, given just how quiet the weekend’s news flow was. Subsequently, I was “saved before the bell” – when China’s People Daily unleashed […]

First Trump, Now Dudley! Next Up, Yellen!

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Given yesterday’s historic news, of Trump blind-siding the gold Cartel’s principal propaganda meme of the past 20 years – the “strong dollar policy” – by saying the “dollar’s too strong”; and thus, taking the “final currency war” thermonuclear; you probably thought I’d start with something gold-related. I’m not, but […]


from SGT

Writer and researcher Andy Hoffman from Miles Franklin returns to SGT Report to kick off 2017 with an economic and geopolitical update. Andy says that even if Trump is able to accomplish some of the things he said he’d do if he were President, there is no way he can prevent […]

The 12:00 PM EST “Cap Of Last Resort”

by Andy Hoffman,, Miles Franklin:

I have a LOT to speak of today – culminating in something I should have memorialized years ago, amidst my heyday of publishing “primers” of the gold Cartel’s myriad, day-to-day operations. I’m having trouble choosing which “PM bearish, everything-else-bullish” topic to start with – but due to how smothering […]

Ominous Reflections On 2017’s First Trading Day

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

I’m starting this at 8:30 PM MST Tuesday, in my eerily quiet house – as Sylvie is sleeping, Diana is teaching, and Giselle sits by my feet, waiting for her next snack. I’ll finish tomorrow morning, as I don’t want to miss a beat – in a rapidly changing […]

The “Upcoming, Cataclysmic, Financial Big Bang To End All Big Bangs”-Upgraded From Inevitable To Imminent?

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Before the U.S. has even opened for 2017 business, global markets have taken a dramatic step towards implosion – as the “year of monetary revolution” commences. Yes, the gold Cartel started the year as they start nearly every day; i.e., with a “Sunday Night Sentiment” raid, for the 170th […]

2017 – The Year of Monetary Revolution

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

In the past month, I’ve espoused many beliefs of what 2017 will bring – deeming it to likely be a year of money printing and draconian government actions. In fact, following an historic year of political, economic, and monetary change, the best possible description for what I anticipate in […]

Unrelenting “PM-Bullish, Everything-Else-Bearish” Headlines-To Usher Out 2016, And Foreshadow 2017

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

It’s my last article of what I believe is the penultimate year of survival for history’s largest; most destructive; and for the first time, global, fiat Ponzi scheme. Fittingly, on this typical quiet week of paper-thin holiday trading, the headlines are exploding with potentially cataclysmic, “PM-bullish, everything-else-bearish” items.

For […]

Demystifying Precious Metals Propaganda, Part lll

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Yesterday’s “why Bitcoin will make gold and silver go up” was a big hit – as it should be, given how momentous the rise of crypto-currency is; and consequently, how governments are guaranteed to respond. I mean, if they’re this scared of something as intrinsically worthless as cash; let […]
