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....

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.

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.

Did Putin Quietly Play the Debt Card Over Syria?

“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....

JP Morgan, Economists Agree: Market Collapse Will Strike in 2013

According to a major bank, a pair of noted economists, and one controversial billionaire, 2013 will be a “year of terrible reckoning” for the stock market.

JP Morgan just released its outlook for the first quarter. Surprisingly, this regularly bullish company has reversed course and revealed an ominous chart that every investor needs to be alerted to.

As you can clearly see, stocks have retraced the pattern from the last two big market rallies (averaging over 100%), and now face a massive decline in 2013 (of over 50%).

Market Collapse Chart

JP Morgan isn’t alone in its stark predictions.

Hayden’s Note:

This is a must-read article. Additionally, by looking at the chart above, one can clearly see that from ’97 to ’00, it was a moderate uphill climb, followed by a very similar descent. In ’02, it took much longer to get to that high market rally point before descending much more rapidly than the previous fall. The ’09 ascent will likely not top off for several more months, suckering in more market-players before crashing faster than ever before.

Barter Economy: 50g Gold and Silver CombiBar Can Snap into 1g Micro Bars Thumbnail

Barter Economy: 50g Gold and Silver CombiBar Can Snap into 1g Micro Bars

Valcambi sa, an international gold refiner and bar manufacturer based in Switzerland, has debuted their new CombiBar, a .999 gold or silver, credit card sized “bar” that can be broken into 1 gram increments for smaller transactions.

combibar5

For those who invest in precious metals as a form of barter or alternative currency, the traditionally higher premiums on small gold bars are cost-prohibitive to many buyers, making silver much more attractive due to its lower cost per ounce and ease of use in transactions.

Gold is typically reserved for larger purchases or as a store of wealth, until now.  The CombiBar allows an investor to purchase 50 gram or 100 gram “bars” that can snap apart into individual, smaller “bars” or sheets.  The cards are available in .999 silver, palladium, and platinum!

It should be noted that like all precious metal purchases, there is a premium, and according to my figures, the CombiBar runs approximately 15-25% higher than spot price, depending on what precious metal you purchase.

Typical bullion prices only command a 5-10% premium, so it boils down to, “Are you willing to spend a bit more now for easier use in the future?...

Farewell Dear Doctor. You were the last remaining patriot. I salute you for your wisdom, courage, and honesty. You alone were the shining light during this dark time. You are no longer alone in your fight for freedom, liberty, and truth.

Farewell to Congress

This may well be the last time I speak on the House Floor. At the end of the year I’ll leave Congress after 23 years in office over a 36 year period. My goals in 1976 were the same as they are today: promote peace and prosperity by a strict adherence to the principles of individual liberty.

It was my opinion, that the course the U.S. embarked on in the latter part of the 20th Century would bring us a major financial crisis and engulf us in a foreign policy that would overextend us and undermine our national security.

To achieve the goals I sought, government would have had to shrink in size and scope, reduce spending, change the monetary system, and reject the unsustainable costs of policing the world and expanding the American Empire....

Rolling Jubilee: Project to Buy Debt for Pennies on the Dollar and Then Erase It

We buy debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, we abolish it. We cannot buy specific individuals’ debt—instead, we help liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal.

Hayden’s Note:

I take no position on the Occupy Wall Street movement. That being said, I found this project to be interesting and certainly worthy of sharing.  Groups like this can really change the paradigm and are offering solid solutions that I can jive with. 

We’re beginning this effort with The People’s Bailout, a variety show and telethon in NYC on November 15. All proceeds will go directly to buying people’s debt and cancelling it.

A bailout of the people by the people.

Wall Street-owned media group “Clarín” spearheading anti-government drive in South America’s Argentina. 

The US-engineered “Arab Spring” brought us the “April 6 Youth Movement” in Egypt, run by Wall Street-backed Mohammed El Baradei in coordination with the Muslim Brotherhood, the “February 17 Revolution,” consisting of Al Qaeda terrorists of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in Libya, and now Argentina has the “8N,” or “November 8″ movement working in coordination with foreign-owned Argentinian media group, “Clarín.”

Clarin has been enthusiastically supporting the protesters and laying the rhetorical groundwork justifying their street presence.

The Guardian reported in their article, “Argentina protests: up to half a million rally against Fernández de Kirchner,” that (emphasis added):

Word of the demonstration spread through social networks. Many organisers remain anonymous, but Mariana Torres, administrator of the Facebook page El Anti-K, one of the most active in calling for the rally, said she was delighted: “It was a true feast for democracy.”

There was no single cause of discontent. Many in the middle class are angry at the highest inflation in a decade, estimated at a yearly 25% by private economists, currency controls that have created a black market in dollars, and one of the slowest economic growth rates in Latin America.
