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

Posted on Sep 13, 2014 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Federal Reserve & Bankers

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.

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.

Third Banker Commits Suicide Within a Week 310114banker

“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.

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....

Sears Turning Shuttered Stores into Data Centers as Ubiquity Critical Environments

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....

Congress Making it Nearly Impossible to Pass on a Farm to Your Children – 55% Estate Tax

Posted on Nov 22, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Economic News, Political Issues, Urban Gardening, Farming & Homesteading

Kevin Hayden  – TruthisTreason.net

If you have a farm or a small business, would you like to pass it on to your children when you die? Well, unless Congress does something, it is going to become much, much harder to do that starting next year.

Right now, there is a 5 million dollar estate tax exemption and anything above that is taxed at 35 percent. But on January 1st, the exemption will go down to 1 million dollars and the tax rate will go up to 55 percent. A lot of liberals are very excited about this, because they believe that the government will be soaking wealthy people like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. But the truth is that a lot of farms, ranches and small businesses will be absolutely devastated by this change in the tax law.

There are many farmers and ranchers out there today that do not make much money but are sitting on tracts of land that are worth millions of dollars. According to the American Farm Bureau, approximately 97 percent of all farms and ranches in the United States would be subject to the estate tax if the exemption was reduced to just a million dollars.

Keynes on Worker Utopia Through Perpetual Threat of War – Hayden’s Note Attached

Posted on Nov 20, 2012 in Economic News, Political Issues

Kevin  Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Borrowed from Zero Hedge, via YouTube

Presenting 74 seconds of pure Krugmanism from the mouth of the man himself – John Maynard Keynes – in this 1939 (pre-war) radio address on the beginning of The Grand Experiment.

Hayden’s Note:

I don’t think the experiment ever ended, do you? Unemployment continues to rise and “defense” spending is at an all time high.  This is the cat-chasing-his-own-tail sort of bedtime story that most Keynesian followers still believe is the way to peace and prosperity – keep buying bullets, bombs, and missiles! War is Peace!

George Orwell would be proud.

Funniest part IS: most warmongering “Republicans” scream about Keynesian economic policy when they can attach it to a Liberal/Democrat, but in reality, they, too, are followers of Keynes to a T.

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.

Startling Evidence that Central Banks and Wall Street Insiders are Rapidly Preparing for Something Big

Posted on Aug 20, 2012 in Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Source: Economic Collapse Blog

If you want to figure out what is going to happen next in the financial markets, carefully watch what the insiders are doing.  Those that are “connected” have access to far better sources of information than the rest of us have, and if they hear that something big is coming up they will often make very significant moves with their money in anticipation of what is about to happen.

Right now, Wall Street insiders and central banks all around the globe are making some very unusual moves.  In fact, they appear to be rapidly preparing for something really big.  So exactly what are they up to?  In a previous article entitled,l “Are The Government And The Big Banks Quietly Preparing For An Imminent Financial Collapse?“, I speculated that they may be preparing for a financial meltdown of some sort.  As I noted in that article, more than 600 banking executives have resigned from their positions over the past 12 months, and I have been personally told that a substantial number of Wall Street bankers have been shopping for “prepper properties” this summer. ...
