Billionaire Elites Piling Into Gold – Jeff Berwick on Palisade Radio

  • Published on Sep 6, 2016
    Jacob Rothschild, Stanley Druckenmiller, George Soros, along with his associate Crispin Odey, and other billionaire elitists are moving massively into gold. In his recent semi-annual address to RIT shareholders, Rothschild announced that they are reducing their stock and currency exposure and increasing their gold holdings.

    Rothschild: ”The six months under review have seen central bankers continuing what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world. We are therefore in uncharted waters and it is impossible to predict the unintended consequences of very low interest rates, with some 30% of global government debt at negative yields, combined with quantitative easing on a massive scale.”

MUST WATCH… Financial Apocalypse ON of BEFORE October 3 2016? – Bo Polny

  • Published on Sep 14, 2016
    The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are described in the last book of the New Testament of the Bible, called the Book of Revelation of Jesus Christ to John the Apostle, at 6:1-8. The chapter tells of a book or scroll in God’s right hand that is sealed with seven seals. The Lamb of God opens the first four of the seven seals, which summons four beings that ride out on white, red, black, and pale horses. The Four Riders are often seen as symbolizing Conquest or Pestilence or Christ or the Antichrist (theologians and popular culture differ on the first horseman) [1], War [2], Famine [3] and Death [4].

    Are the Four Riders in the Book of Revelation a Truth (yet to occur) or complete Fiction? Are we living in or about to enter these Biblical times as foretold in the Book of Revelation? Are the horsemen soon to ride or is all this just complete Fiction? How could such terrible calamities begin as foretold within the Book? WHAT could be the ‘triggering event” if the Book of Revelation is a truth and WHEN would it all begin? Many questions and much to consider.

    Looking at our world today, the best guess of WHAT the ‘triggering event” could be is a worldwide financial Derivative Crisis. How could such an event occur? That is anyone’s best guess; but the WHEN we believe is mathematically possible to calculate… and calculation indicate we are now very close to such an event, in fact, extremely close…

Boom! End Game Nears as Central Banks Buying Up Gold Mining Companies!

Remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules! Got physical gold yet?

Remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules! Got physical gold yet?

  • Boom! End Game Nears as Central Banks Buying Up Gold Mining Companies!
    by When you watch mainstream media or listen to central bankers, gold is constantly deemed to be the redheaded stepchild of the investment industry.

    Just that alone, is unbelievable, considering that gold has been one of the best performing investments of the 21st century.  On December 31st, 1999, gold closed at $290.25.  As of today it is trading at $1327.80.

    That is a percentage gain in the last 16 years of 357%!  Compare that to the Dow Jones, which closed the 20th century at 11497 and currently is at 18085 for a gain of only 57.3%.

    If there is a business sector or financial asset class that has outperformed gold in the last 16 years, I can’t think of one.  Yet, aside from your crazy neighbor with a bomb shelter or those who read The Dollar Vigilante, how many people do you know who understand the necessity for owning gold and have actually acted on that knowledge?

    Meanwhile, central banksters like Alan Greenspan call gold a “barbarous relic,” and Ben Bernanke has opined that gold is not money and the only reason central banks hold it is because of “long-term tradition. ”

    And so, it was with great interest, shock actually, that I came across this headline, “Switzerland and Norway Begin to Massively Accumulate Precious Metals Mining Shares“.

    It outlines how the central banks of both Norway and Switzerland have been buying up nearly $1 billion worth of gold mining stocks. Well, isn’t that interesting! The moves of these banks are noteworthy not for their strategies, but because they are indicative of the perilous state of the world’s financial and monetary systems.

    Central banks have sold gold regularly over the years, probably as part of a larger propaganda campaign to convince the public that gold and silver don’t matter anymore. (And there’s another reason I will get to in a moment.)

    If central banks are starting to become so worried about the state of the world economy that they are willing to reverse an obvious manipulative meme, that’s something to take quite seriously.

    For central banks to buy gold in 2016 is akin to what we have often called a Jubilee Jolt – a surprise move that emphasizes the seriousness of the crisis that is now upon us.

The End of the World as We Know It | Rob Kirby

  • Published on Sep 9, 2016
    Proprietary analyst Rob Kirby returns to Reluctant Preppers to sound the alarm that unprecedented global events including breaking of ranks by world leaders combined with alignment between analysts indicate the high risk of a major economic crisis in the coming months. Listen in as Kirby explains why things may be disrupted even sooner, and what we must do now!

    We’re Living in A Dystopic World
    Major notable analysts a gathering flock warning of a foreboding collapse this fall.
    China G20 meeting events unprecedented in US history:
    Obama snubbed by Chinese on arrival, disdain for American leadership.
    Philippine president cussing out Obama,

    Foreign leaders are boldly displaying contempt of the US for mis-managing the world’s financial system, unsupportable lies, cooked data, corruption, overt denial of real economic plight (lowest ever labor participation rate, negative interest rates,

    Real change is occurring, events are foreshadowing a major reset is at our door. John William: US real unemployment rate = 24 percent !
    Official inflation data falsely claims low inflation, but common sense “burrito index” reveals the reality of inflation and loss of purchasing power for: food, health care, tuitions, rent, car.

    US Leaders persisting in complete disconnect with reality, data manipulated & people are getting sick of this. Even foreign leaders know they’ll be left with a huge painful disaster.

    Donald Trump – walking into a collapsing system – why would anyone in their right mind want to take the helm of a sinking ship? Can Trump really pull off a turnaround given how far off the rails we are right now? Will the powers that be torpedo a Trump presidency, economy, and America?

    Physical gold supply shortages for wholesale (large scale, immediate delivery) markets? Gold can move rapidly to $10,000 an ounce!

    We will soon see whether the American people still command the courage to stand up for right and reject corruption and abuses by the elite.

Switzerland And Norway Begin to Massively Accumulate Precious Metals Mining Shares – Nathan McDonald

Remember the Golden Rule: "He who has the gold Rules!"

Remember the Golden Rule: “He who has the gold Rules!”

  • Switzerland And Norway Begin to Massively Accumulate Precious Metals Mining Shares – Nathan McDonald
    by Nathan McDonald,  
    Events are moving behind the scenes. For decades, Western Central bankers have told the masses that gold is a barbarous relic. They have encouraged us to shed its protection and move into the sanctity of their highly corrupt and highly manipulated fiat assets.

    During this time period, our Western Central bankers have offloaded our countries’ hard earned wealth, shipping massive quantities of precious metals to far off lands in the East, never to be seen again – despite what they may think. Our wealth is being sold out from under our feet.

    Yet, as I have reported on recently, a shift is occurring. Call it what you will – I call it panic. Many Western Central bankers are trying to accumulate metals in stealthy ways, behind the scenes and unbeknownst to the masses, whom they wish to keep trapped in fiat money.

    The two most recent examples of Western Central Banks moving into precious metals in a serious way are the Swiss and Norwegian Central Banks.

    Both banks are being reported to have printed close to $1 billion dollars of fiat money as of recently. This should come as no shock to anyone, as this is all Central Banks know how to do – print money.

    What is more stunning, however, is where they immediately moved these funds. You guessed it right – into precious metals.

    They know that the physical precious metals market is limited, tight, and scarce. They also know that if they simply printed $1 billion worth of fiat money out of thin air and moved it into physical, then they would risk blowing the market apart, sending prices potentially catapulting higher.

    Since they are not yet willing to face the wrath of the other Central Bankers around the world, they did the next best thing. They bought shares in the gold mines themselves.

    Below, you will find two lists compiled by Smaulgold, which showcases the current gold mining stock holdings of both the Swiss and Norwegian Central Banks:

‘Helicopter Money Coming’: Exclusive Interview with Top Hedge Fund Manager Tom Conrad

Yellen: "I need bigger and more helicopters!"

Yellen: “I need bigger and more helicopters!”


    by ,  
    Thomas D. Conrad, Ph.D. is a highly ranked hedge fund manager with World Opportunity Master Fund and president of Financial Management Corporation. His flagship World Opportunity Master Fund, LP, is an international hedge fund that operates globally as a fund-of-hedge-funds. Fund managers hold in aggregate well over US$2 billion in managed investments. The fund has been ranked number nine in the world in certain categories by BarklayHedge and recently reached a number three ranking. Dr. Conrad has held a seat on the Philadelphia-Baltimore-Washington Stock Exchange, and was Deputy Assistant Secretary of the United States Air Force for the Reagan Administration. Website:

    Hello, Tom, thanks for sitting down with us once again. We last talked to you more than a year ago. At the time you predicted a significant stock market crash and only a month later the Dow reflected your position with a huge intra-day crash. There was huge volatility throughout the fall.

    Tom Conrad:
    Yes, and then again in at the beginning of January of 2016.

    TDV: It’s not over yet, of course.
    Tom Conrad: Eventually, we’re going to see a crash of stupendous proportions. I’ve been at this 50 years and after a while you can get a sense of the market even above and beyond the statistics and what you read. It’s been bad and is getting worse despite the market averages.

     We agree. That’s why we were interested when we got your note regarding the prediction of “helicopter money.”

    Tom Conrad: I sent that out to all my clients.
    TDV: Let me read it out loud.
    I am predicting and expecting the United States will soon print and distribute $100 billion of free money to inhabitants of the United States (helicopter money). This is intended to create greater inflation. [ Our fund] will therefore be increasing our percentage of gold ownership as insurance in the fund.

    Tom Conrad: I wanted to provide a rationale for what we intend to do, which is substantially add to our portfolio of physical gold.
