Silver at 4-Year Low, Excellent Time to Protect Your Current Wealth

The stock market has been on a meteoric rise over the last year or so, while precious metals have been on a downhill slope. This occurs because the market becomes comfortable, and quite frankly, greedy, as stocks continue to rise while interest rates remain at or near zero. Gold and silver stocks are mostly considered to be a long-term investment, and are relatively safe, but the allure of fast money compels investors to abandon the precious metals ship and climb aboard the risky, manipulated train of paper stocks.

It is a simple, inverse equation – stocks go up, metals go down. Stocks go down, metals go up. Do you believe that the current stock market gravy train will sustain itself? Or should we take steps to mitigate a massive market change and invest while metals are at their lowest levels in nearly half a decade?

The US economy is dead. The Fed has known this for a long time, but pumped it up to where it is now to draw in all the greater fools, the so-called big investors who have made money like honey from QE and ZIRP.

Oklahoma Senate Passes SB 862, Making Gold & Silver Legal Tender

On Monday, the Oklahoma State Senate passed a bill that would legalize gold and silver as legal tender, moving the legislation on to the House for consideration. The vote was 37-4.

If passed into law, Oklahoma could become the first state to recognize gold and silver as legal tender authorized for payments of debts and taxes.

Last month, the Arizona senate also passed a similar bill by a vote of 18-12. However, the governor has already vetoed a similar bill last year.

The United States Constitution states in Article I, Section 10, “No State shall…make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.” The Constitutional tender act is a big step towards that constitutional requirement which has been ignored for a long time in every state of the country. Such a tactic would achieve the desired goal of abolishing the Federal Reserve system by attacking it from the bottom up – pulling the rug out from under it by working to make its functions irrelevant at the State and local level....

The NTR 1 oz Silver Bullet is a popular silver collectible. Texas-based mint NTR is renowned throughout the precious metals industry. They’ve designed their 1 oz, .999 fine Silver Bullet nearly identical to the 1904 cartridges designed by John Browning for his Colt semi-automatic .45 pistol. Browning, of course, designed various guns, mechanisms, and types of ammunition for the military, as well as civilian markets. The bullets are a nostalgic symbol of this classic era in gun manufacturing. As such, they make an excellent gift for a gun or weapons collector, as well as an excellent investment in silver bullion.

We ship each NTR 1 oz Silver Bullet in brand new condition. All of our silver bullion shipments are mailed fully insured for added protection for our customers. Find them at JM Bullion ->

Hayden’s Note & Full Disclosure:

JM Bullion is a paid sponsor of Truth is Treason.net, but as evidenced by the included receipt image, I regularly purchase precious metals from JM Bullion, including several of the 1 oz Silver Bullets just today.

Stock Market Tumbles 1,000 Points: Hayden’s Note on Tangible Goods

The Dow has fallen more than 1,000 points from the peak of the Market

That didn’t take long. On Monday, the Dow was down another 326 points. Overall, the Dow has now fallen more than 1,000 points from the peak of the market (16,588.25) back in late December. This is the first time that we have seen the Dow drop below its 200-day moving average in more than a year, and there are many that believe that this is just the beginning of a major stock market decline.

Hayden’s Note:

As noted previously, and repeatedly, I believe that tangible goods are the most secure way of protecting your wealth. Whether talking of precious metals, or farmland, or quality implements, tools, firearms, or otherwise, tangible goods – those things that you can put in your hand and use – are of utmost importance in this age of economic uncertainty.

While I applaud the Bitcoin crowd, and even partake in it myself to a small degree, Federal Reserve notes, digital currency, bonds, bank notes, and stock market investments, otherwise known as “paper investments”, hold up very poorly unless you live your life in front of several computer screens, monitoring events in real-time, and work as a day trader.

A third banker has committed suicide within the space of a week, once again prompting speculation that some kind of financial collapse could be just around the corner.

“Mike Dueker, the chief economist at Russell Investments, was found dead at the side of a highway that leads to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington state, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. He was 50,” reports Bloomberg.

Dueker fell down a 50 foot embankment in what police are describing as a suicide. He was reported missing on January 29 by friends, who said he had been “having problems at work.”

Dueker worked at Seattle-based Russell for five years, and developed a business-cycle index that forecast economic performance. He was previously an assistant vice president and research economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

JM Bullion: Securing Your Money in the Age of Bitcoin, the NSA, and Federal Reserve

Every so often, I receive an email asking me to recommend a reputable precious metals dealer or why I invest in gold and silver and not Bitcoin.  I’ve talked at length on the topic of securing metals as a long-term investment, or tangible good; not only for times of disaster, but to simply preserve your wealth.  As we have all plainly witnessed, the Federal Reserve has been on a printing binge for several years now, and with each new round of Quantitative Easing that is dished out, your hard earned dollar is worth less and less.

jmbullionlogo

From my standpoint, tangibles endure the test of time far better than a fiat paper currency such as the US Dollar.  A fiat currency has value only because of government fiat - or declaration.   And since it is tied to the whims of governing politicians and bankers, it risks both inflation and deflation, with inflation causing you to shell out more and more dollar bills for the same old product year after year and deflation making the products you currently own worthless....

Hayden’s Note: Bitcoins, the FBI, and Tangible Goods

Who owns the single largest Bitcoin wallet on the internet? The U.S. government.

In September, the FBI shut down the Silk Road online drug marketplace, and it started seizing bitcoins belonging to the Dread Pirate Roberts — the operator of the illicit online marketplace, who they say is an American man named Ross Ulbricht.

The FBI now controls more than 144,000 bitcoins that reside at a bitcoin address that consolidates much of the seized Silk Road bitcoins. Those 144,000 bitcoins are worth close to $100 million at Tuesday’s exchange rates. Another address, containing Silk Road funds seized earlier by the FBI, contains nearly 30,000 bitcoins ($20 million).

Hayden’s Note:

I’ve had email after email asking for my opinion on Bitcoin and if readers should invest in the digital currency. In it’s early days, I mined for some Bitcoin myself. As time went on, I read more and more about the likelihood that Bitcoin was merely a law enforcement or intelligence honeypot and I continue to believe that.

There is also speculation that various intel agencies use the currency in order to launder their own money in order to fund clandestine operations.

Gold Manipulation & the Approaching Perfect Storm Thumbnail

Gold Manipulation & the Approaching Perfect Storm

Due to western central bank price manipulation, the mining sector is in critical condition, the supply line is all but halted, and the physical supply is being swallowed up by Asia.

The last shoe to drop is for major mining companies to start closing down production at major mines. Though this would be perceived as the end for gold, speculators will be happy to know that this would be the beginning of the biggest Fed-induced bubble in history!

But unlike previous Fed bubbles, where they support the price increase, the gold bubble will be a result of western central planners mismanaging the gold price for the past 3 decades and finally losing control. As Peak Resources explains in the brief clip, the perfect storm is coming for gold…

Via Peak Resources:

Friday October 11th, gold trading was shut down for 10 seconds according to the CME.

Why? Because someone sold 2 million ounces of gold at one time. Who does this? Who sells nearly 2 and half percent of annual gold production in a single minute?...

“They are living beyond their means and shifting a part of the weight of their problems to the world economy. They are living like parasites off the global economy and their monopoly of the dollar. If [in America] there is a systemic malfunction, this will affect everyone. Countries like Russia and China hold a significant part of their reserves in American securities. There should be other reserve currencies.” – Vladimir Putin in 2011

While I hate to give such praise to a foreign leader, Putin has undoubtedly run rings around the moribund and bureaucratic incompetence of the Laurel and Hardy-style Obama and Kerry team on Syria. Putin diplomatically has the swiftness and stealth of the South’s Stonewall Jackson and Germany’s Erwin Rommel, probably the two greatest military commanders in world history.

What Really Happened on the Night of Friday, August 30th?

“At one point last week in the charade known as ‘the Syria peace negotiations’, John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, announced solemnly, ‘This is not a game.’ Well, he was wrong there....

SHTF Plan.com Editor-in-Chief Mac Slavo’s Note:

In the following analysis, Brandon Smith, of Alt Market, offers up one of the most insightful articles you’re likely to ever read on the potential sequence of events that may occur over the next several years. It lays out, step by step, how the global elite are positioning the chess pieces, the consequences for each and every one of us, and what we can do right now to insulate ourselves from the inevitability of the manufactured global collapse that will take place as we move forward. This is must-share information. Urge those closest to you to get a grasp of what’s happening and to prepare for it as best they can.

For years now, at Alt-Market (and Neithercorp.us), I have carefully outlined the most likely path of collapse to take place within the U.S., and a vital part of that analysis included economic destabilization caused by a loss of the dollar’s world reserve status and petro-status.  I have also always made clear that this fiscal crisis event would not occur in the midst of a political vacuum. ...

Will blinking blue lights of servers soon fill the aisles that previously offered the Blue Light Special? Sears Holdings has formed a new unit to market space from former Sears and Kmart retail stores as a home for data centers, disaster recovery space and wireless towers.

With the creation of Ubiquity Critical Environments, Sears hopes to convert the retail icons of the 20th century into the Internet infrastructure to power the 21st century digital economy. Sears Holdings has one of the largest real estate portfolios in the country, with 3,200 properties spanning 25 million square feet of space. That includes dozens of Sears and Kmart stores that have been closed over the years.

Business Continuity, Complete With Starbucks

“There are compelling reasons why this is a great model,” said Sean Farney, the Chief Operating Officer of Ubiquity. “It used to be the business continuity centers were located in an industrial park. The customer has evolved to the point where they want a sexier location, where they can have access to a Starbucks and other retail, because it’s possible they may be there for weeks or months....
