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.

Group of Economic Experts Warn of Catastrophic Pattern, “Everything Will Collapse”

Posted on Oct 04, 2012 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Famed economist Marc Faber appeared on Bloomberg TV with a harsh, direct warning to investors.

“U.S. monetary policies will destroy the world,” he said, referring to the new round of stimulus – QE3, or “QE Forever” – the Fed plans to launch this year.

So it wasn’t surprising to hear him speak out against Bernanke’s most recent stimulus plan, quantitative easing or QE3.

What was surprising – and frightening – was the level of wealth-destruction he believes will occur.

According to Faber, “eventually we will have a systematic crisis and everything will collapse.”

Faber’s not alone.

A group of his economic peers agree that with more central bank action like QE3, global economic collapse is imminent.

In a newly released documentary that went viral last month, a team of influential economic experts say they have discovered a “frightening pattern” they believe points to a massive economic catastrophe unlike anything ever seen.

And according to these experts – who have presented their findings to the United Nations, the UK Parliament and a long list of world governments – the catastrophe may happen well before Americans hit the polls in November....

Death of the US Dollar Hegemony: Military Intervention, Oil Sales, and the Inevitable Collapse

According to a recent report by Indy Media, Mexican crude oil will be sold to China without using the US dollar as its trading currency.  Sources inside the Mexican government refuse to disclose if they have been in secret negotiations with China over possible crude oil sales.

If you’re not familiar with the term petrodollar, or why a move such as this by China, Mexico, or Russia is of grave concern, allow me to give you a few points to consider and explain the situation –

In 1975, the members of OPEC agreed to sell oil only in US dollars.  This was for a variety of reasons, but chief among them was to maintain a need for US currency and maintain its reign as the global reserve.  Without this in America’s backpocket, I’m sure that the Dollar would have even less value, to put it mildly.

Greenspan, in his first speech after leaving as Chairman of the Fed, said that gold prices were up because of concern about terrorism, and not because of monetary concerns or because he created too many dollars during his tenure.

US Army Domestic Quick Reaction Force – More Riot Control Training

For years, the alternative media has warned about the US military being used against the American people in a time of economic collapse or any sort of martial law scenario.

Drills such as Vigilant Guard 2010 have brought widespread attention to the fact that portions of our own military are training to take on crowds of American citizens demanding food and Constitutional rights in a time of crisis.

Now, a new release by the website Public Intelligence, once again confirms that as recently as February and March of 2012, US troops at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington were conducting training scenarios for a civil disturbance domestic quick reaction force.

A series of photos of the drills shows US troops with crowd control riot shields on the opposite side of actors portraying what can only be described as American citizens.

“The following photos are from March and February of this year and were taken at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington.  The first four photos from March depict riot control training for a “domestic quick reaction force” that would aid in civil disturbances....

Researchers at one of the world’s leading think tanks have developed a computing model that predicts serious implications for our way of life as a result of our incessant need to consume resources like oil, food, and fresh water. According to a team of scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the breaking point will come no later than 2030, and when it does, we can expect a paradigm shift unlike any we have seen before in human history – one that will not only collapse the economies of the world, but will cause food and energy production to decrease so significantly that it will lead to the deaths of  hundreds of millions of people in the process.

 

The recent study, completed on behalf of The Club of Rome, an organization which issued it’s own findings on ‘peak everything’ back in the 1970′s in a controversial environmental report dubbed The Limits to Growth (video), takes into account the relations between various global developments and produces computer simulations for alternative scenarios....

Doomsday Executive Order or Govt Preparedness? Either Way, It’s Tyrannical

“In a nutshell, it’s the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for “National Defense”, whatever they decide that is.” (The Intel Hub)

While millions of people have been preparing for the possibility of a catastrophic event by relocating to rural homesteads or farms, as well as stockpiling food, water, personal defense armaments and other essential supplies with the intention of utilizing these preparations if the worst happens, the latest executive order signed by President Obama on March 16, 2012 makes clear that in the event of a nationally deemed emergency all of these resources will fall under the authority of the United States government.

Hayden’s Counterpoint:

While I find this EO to be interesting, and most certainly enjoy the work of Activist Post, Intel Hub, and SHTF Plan, I must agree with Doug Mataconis on this matter:

It all sounds pretty scary, and it wasn’t long before the usual suspects were citing this as evidence of some kind of plan for martial law, just as there were people on the left and far-right in asserting that George Bush was going to declare martial law and cancel the elections in 2004 and 2008.

‘Plan for an Economic 9/11′: Analysts Warn to Buy Guns and Gold, Expect Market Crash and Street Riots

Just when you thought unemployment was dropping and stock markets were surging back, these three analysts today sent out a stark warning to Americans to brace for another financial crash.

Hayden’s Note:

….And this is a surprise?  I’ve written about this very topic for years now.  It’s painfully obvious to anyone paying attention that there will be another financial crash.  As for when, and the severity, is anyone’s guess.  Investing in tangibles, making long-term preparedness plans, and enjoying life is all you can do at the moment, so why get stressed out about it?

Trend forecaster Gerald Celente advises buying a gun to protect your family, stocking up on gold if the dollar crashes and planning a getaway, so it’s no shock he’s preparing for an ‘economic 9/11’.

Share prices and unemployment are posting their best figures in four years since the recession hit, but Mr Celente, along with authors Harry Dent and Robert Prechter, says the rebound won’t last.

All three were profiled in a USA Today feature on Monday....

USA Number 1? 40 Embarrassing Things That America is The Best At

Is the USA still #1?  Well, there are many things that America is still the best in the world at, but unfortunately a lot of those categories are nothing to be proud of.  Once upon a time the United States was the greatest nation on earth, but now we are a nation that is in a horrific state of decline.  Just consider a few of the embarrassing things that America leads the world in: obesity, crime, divorce, teen pregnancy, child abuse deaths and government debt.  The statistics that you are about to read below are incredibly disturbing.

It is time to realize that we will never be able to start fixing our problems until we take a really good look in the mirror and realize just how far we have fallen.  America is not the country that it once was.  America is a complete and total mess and just “tweaking” a few things here and there is not going to return this nation to its former glory.  We have forgotten the things that once made us great, and if we do not return to them we will continue to fall apart as a nation....

NDAA Nullification Passes Virginia Senate by a Veto-Proof 39-1 Vote
Today, the Virginia Senate took a firm stand in support of liberty, the Constitution for the United States, and the Constitution of Virginia by voting in favor of House Bill 1160 (HB1160), the “NDAA Nullification Act.”

Goodbye, First Amendment: ‘Trespass Bill’ will make protest illegal
Just when you thought the government couldn’t ruin the First Amendment any further: The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests in instances where some government officials are nearby, whether or not you even know it.

More bad news: U.S. water bills to triple
Yet another great reason to get your own piece of land or install a private water well!  I’m about to install a manual water pump out at my shipping container homesteading effort, the Elysian Fields Project.  This will also protect you against a grid-down situation. The ability to provide for yourself is of the utmost importance these days.

Wyoming Advances Doomsday Bill, Establishes State Sovereignty & Disaster Contingency

Posted on Feb 26, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

State representatives advanced legislation to launch a study into what Wyoming should do in the event of a complete economic or political collapse in the United States.

House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote. It would create a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government.

The task force would look at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed. And House members approved an amendment Friday by state Rep. Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, to have the task force also examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.

The bill’s sponsor, state Rep. David Miller, R-Riverton, has said he doesn’t anticipate any major crises hitting America anytime soon. But with the national debt exceeding $15 trillion and protest movements growing around the country, Miller said Wyoming — which has a comparatively good economy and sound state finances — needs to make sure it’s protected should any unexpected emergency hit the U.S....

The Global Debt Bomb: a Warning Sign for the World

Any financial system that is based on debt is doomed to fail.  Today, we are living in the greatest debt bubble that the world has ever seen, and if all of a sudden people could not use credit to buy things, our economy would immediately grind to a halt.  Unfortunately, no debt bubble can last forever.

Hayden’s Note:

Unfortunately?  I’m rather pleased about the fact that we might…just might… be able to allow this debt bubble to burst and start over.  I’m not a fan of over-entending credit.  I’m not a fan of the Federal Reserve.  And I’m certainly not a fan of the insanity that we call modern banking practices.  Let it come crashing down.

When this current debt bubble finally bursts, faith in the financial system is going to disappear, credit is going to freeze up and there is going to be a massive wave of bank failures.  Right now, Greece is a warning sign for the world.  Nobody wants to lend money to Greece, the Greek banking system is dying, one out of every four businesses has already shut down, unemployment is soaring and the Greek economy has now been in recession for five years in a row....
