EU Bureaucrats Escalate the War on Cash: Will Precious Metals Be in the Crosshairs?

  • EU Bureaucrats Escalate the War on Cash: Will Precious Metals Be in the Crosshairs?
    by https://www.moneymetals.com/
    The global war on cash rolls on. The cabal of bankers seeking more transaction fees, busybody political leaders, and central bankers who want to experiment with negative interest rates recently threw India into turmoil by eliminating the two largest denomination bank notes.

    Now they are preparing a similar assault on Europeans’ ability to transact privately and without giving bankers a cut. European Union officials just published a “Proposal for an EU Initiative on Restriction on Payments in Cash.”

    Predictably, the restrictions are being sold to citizens as a means of fighting terrorism – much like a host of other privacy and liberty-destroying power grabs in recent decades. This despite a telling admission contained in the proposal: “There remains the lack of readily available and solid evidence on legitimate versus illegitimate cash transactions.” Ban the use of cash first, ask questions later.

    Officials may, however, come to regret the timing of their proposal. Many European citizens will have trouble reconciling why leaders are willing to clamp down severely on cash, but not on the flood of refugees pouring in from the Middle East. Can they really be serious about terrorism?

Gerald Celente: Debt Crisis Builds — Buy Gold. Definite Movement to Take Trump Out

  • Gerald Celente: Debt Crisis Builds — Buy Gold. Definite Movement to Take Trump Out
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    Trends forecaster Gerald Celente says the resignation of top security advisor Michael Flynn is further proof there is an ongoing “destabilization campaign” and a “definite movement to take out Trump.” Celente explains, “When Trump came in, one of the first things he said in his campaign is let’s stop this fighting with Russia, they’re not the threat that everyone says they are.  Since he’s been saying that, he’s been attacked.  Let’s go back to Michael Flynn.  Trump and Flynn say the CIA has become too politicized.  A lot of these agencies have been wasting money and giving us bad information.  That was what a lot of Flynn was about.  Let’s not forget that Obama dumped Flynn because those were the things that Flynn was saying that Obama didn’t want to hear.”


    The issues dreamed up to take out Trump have been ongoing since the day Trump won the 2016 election. Celente lists the top three and says, “The first issue was the Russians are coming, the Russians are coming.  The second one was the Electoral College, and you remember the third one?  It was we need a vote recount in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.  That’s all we heard.  The media has been attacking Trump from day one.  They are bringing in the Flynn thing because he was an anti-neocon.  That’s the reason.  The neocons want war.  They want destruction.  They want the military industrial complex to continue to build. . . . I don’t know why Trump is still campaigning.  He should keep his people off the air.  They shouldn’t go on the presstitute networks.”

    Celente says Trump can win by playing his own game. When it comes to his own GOP party, Celente explains, “He didn’t need them.  He doesn’t need them now.  Trump beat Hollywood.  He beat the Katzenbergs, the Spielbergs, the Clooneys and De Niros.  He beat Silicon Valley. . . . What I am saying is Trump can beat and win.  He beat all of them.  He beat Obama.  It wasn’t the Russians that made the election go his way. . . . Play the Trump card.  There are no rules.  That is the lesson.”

    Celente says that Trump is inheriting a U.S. and global economy that is bullish for gold prices. Celente explains, “The debt crisis continues to build.  The people are in an uproar about getting their pensions robbed from them.  There are more taxes on them to give the money to the banks that did the dirty deals.  Look beyond the United States, and we do not give financial advice, gold is the ultimate safe haven asset in a time of economic turmoil and geopolitical instability. . . . Our forecast for gold, and let’s say the price is $1,240 per ounce, the downside is another $100 to $150 per ounce.  It cost more than that to pull it out of the ground.  So, it’s not going to go much lower than that ($1,240) . . . . That’s no downside risk.  Here’s our forecast on the upside.  Gold has to break above $1,400 per ounce and solidify over that price, somewhere in the $1,440 to 1,480 range. Once it solidifies in that range, we are saying it’s going to spike to over $2,000 per ounce.  That’s our forecast, and we have been saying that for the better part of a year and a half.”

Clif High: March Chaotic for Dollar & Bonds & 2017 Truth Bombs

  • Clif High: March Chaotic for Dollar & Bonds & 2017 Truth Bombs
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Internet data mining expert Clif High predicts 2017 will be a “deeply disturbing year.” High explains, “2017 will be a deeply disturbing year because the faction that won in placing Trump in power also defeated the other faction, which has been on a roll ever since the McCarthy era.  There has been push for centralization and a push for the control mechanism basically from Nazi infiltration into the United States at the end of WWII.  Tens of thousands came in and infiltrated the infrastructure of the United States.  So, we saw a push with the centralization of government, and if the Clinton faction had won, we would have seen a Hitler type of nexus where banking, political and military power would have been centrally joined. . . . That faction has been defeated, and 70 plus years of directing the global narrative is gone.  It’s crashed. . . . . We are in a narrative vacuum at the moment. . . .  I think that everyone in the United States, at a core level, will be faced with an examination of what we think is true. . . . The faction that has won is not opposed to the general population learning the truth in terms of recent history and distant history.  The Hillary Clinton group represented global warming, carbon credits, and the Trump group represents the part of the deep state that knows we have to get ready to deal with a new ice age.  So, there are all sorts of levels that are going to be broken up that we thought were true.”

    Clif High’s most recent research, which he calls “predictive linguistics,” points to a dollar crash and a bond market crash this year. High contends, “The data sets have this period from March to May being politically and economically chaotic in terms of the language.  We have had stuff about bonds for months, about how the bonds are just going to be vomited out of institutions for poor performance and for basically a drag on them.  They are going to want to get rid of the bonds. . . . We have seen for years it would be coming out of Europe before it hits the U.S.  It’s all going to spring from the Italian banks.”

    So, what happened to the U.S. dollar with a crashing bond market? High says, “The situation looks so dire to the central banks that their response will be rolled out in June.  It will be a response building up for three or four months and political pressure put on them, and that’s why we get the hyperinflation.  It’s because the central bank will be caught between a rock and a hard place.  They will swamp the bond vigilantes and produce a huge amount of quantitative easing.  That’s the approach our data suggests they take, and that will set us up for problems this fall.”

    An even bigger worry is the stock market and who exactly owns your stocks. High says, “The markets are going to present a very giant problem that I do not know if we will have the political will to tackle this year. . . . At some point, the faction that won will address the fraud within the markets themselves. . . . . Every day we trade nine times the amount of stock that exists on the planet.  We have super infinitely hypothecated all of this, and no one knows who owns anything.”  Because of this coming chaos in the markets, High says, “Bitcoin, gold and, above all, silver are going way up in value.”

    There will also be a big revelation that will be revealed about Antarctica in terms of history, civilization, raw materials and ancient technology that has been kept secret by the powers that have just been defeated.

$10,000/oz Silver if Mr. TRUMP Drains the “Silver Swamp!”?

  • $10,000/oz Silver if Mr. TRUMP Drains the “Silver Swamp!”
    by Bix Weir, http://www.roadtoroota.com/
    Ok Mr. Trump. You say you want to “Drain the Swamp” but do you understand that doing so will SINK your friends on Wall Street? You should know this…and I think you do.

    So I am voting for you because you claim to be a man of your word.

    DRAINING THE SWAP MEANS ENDING THE PRICE MANIPULATION OF SILVER!!!
    The very moment that the 50+ year artificial price suppression of SILVER is lifted the price will SKYROCKET past $10K per ounce. The very moment! Here’s the 20 things that need to happen if Trump sticks to his word and the SILVER SWAMP is REALLY drained:


    1) The removal of the gigantic concentrated short position on the COMEX Silver market as reported in the CFTC Commitment of Traders and Bank Participation Reports.
    2) The announcement of charges filed by both the CFTC and the FBI against these banks for Silver market manipulation.
    3) The shut down of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV) and the subsequent attempt by SLV investors to transfer their money into physical silver in their own possession.
    4) The implementation of REALISTIC COMEX Position Limits in Silver of no more than 1,500 contracts and the enforcement of the Disruptive Trading Practices law.
    5) The winding down of the outrageous and manipulative Silver derivative positions held by JP Morgan and Citibank as reported by the US Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
    6) The mass redemption of paper Silver currently held in Pooled Silver Accounts and Silver Certificate Programs into physical silver held in the possession of the owner.
    7) The Silver to Gold Price Ratio reflects the true physical relationship between above ground gold and above ground silver that is available for sale on a free and open market.
    8) The realization by industrial users of silver that the supply of physical silver is rapidly depleting and with the future of producing their products in jeopardy they begin stockpiling physical silver.
    9) The reversal of Silver’s ever increasing use in industrial applications due to either high prices or the discovery of a viable substitute with similar physical properties and attributes.
    10) The realization by the remaining 99.9% of the investing public that does not currently own any physical that Silver is extremely undervalued and should be held by all investors interested in portfolio safety and value appreciation.
    11) Acknowledgment by the Bullion Banks and US Government that they have been involved in the price suppression of Silver for over 50 years in order to support and extend the global confidence in un-backed fiat US Dollar.

China’s 20,000 Golden Rules

  • China’s 20,000 Golden Rules
    by http://www.silverdoctors.com/
    China Has Been Hoarding Gold Like A Dragon. What Exactly Do They Have Planned??

    From Rory Hall, The Daily Coin:
    “Since 2007 China has mined and purchased more gold than any other country on earth”

    We have been documenting China’s insatiable appetite for gold for the past several years. When you realize how much gold China has acquired it puts gold in a completely different light. Gold is money and nothing else. It is used to create jewelry, however, this is nothing more than a centuries old tradition as a means to display and transport of wealth. If your wealth is wearable you can easily move around the region while freeing up space in the trunk or baggage for other items.

    I have long argued that if you’re “hoarding gold like a dragon“, as China has been doing since 2007, you are doing so for the purpose of being able to control the currency markets around the world. The golden rule still applies “the one with the gold makes the rules”. Always has, always will.

    China is now acquiring gold still in the ground as the above ground supplies are now strained and the open market may not have the capacity to satisfy China’s actual demand they have set in their ongoing “plan”. In 2016 China acquired $27 BILLION in gold mines alone. This gold is no longer part of the global supply as every ounce mined will go to China and never be traded on the open market. This seems to be a big part of China’s future plans as their gold acquisitions in 2016 were TRIPLE those in 2015. That’s a significant increase.

    Why is China amassing all this gold?
    Why is China now amassing some of the largest gold mines in the world? Could it be that China is planning for the future and gold will be part of the global or regional (along the New Silk Road – OBOR) trade? High ranking officials from the Shanghai Gold Exchange have already met with the Director of International Financial Center from Kazakhstan for the specific purpose of introducing gold along the New Silk Road. Will the renminbi/yuan be backed with some gold?


    I have long argued that China will reintroduce gold to the currency market and back the renminbi/yuan with gold.
    When China will make this move is the only remaining question. It is very clear China has their sights, in an official capacity, set on acquiring as much as gold as possible for the purpose of being the global economic power and one of the ways to dominate every market on the planet is to offer a gold backed currency.


    Another question would be – how will China’s acquisitions of these major gold mining companies impact the global gold market and the LBMA and COMEX’s ability to be the pricing mechanism for the global gold trade? If China is removing ton upon ton of gold from the open market, at what point will the open market be China? My guess is the LBMA and COMEX have very limited time remaining.
