“Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society …” ~Antonio Gramsci (1915). He said this 103 years ago.


U.S. News Ranks California Last in Quality of Life


“We need more welfare, and fewer jobs.” — Jerry Brown

Wowser! U.S. News ranks the People's Republic of California 50th in quality of life in America. Dead last folks. That's how well socialism and communism work. You know, just like Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korea. All basic factors were considered for determining overall quality of life. It was noted that the top 1% of Californians provide 50% of all taxes and revenues. ONE PER CENT PROVIDES HALF OF ALL STATE REVENUE IN THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC!!!





The commercial net short COMEX silver position went down to 14,000. We warned you this would reverse- as it always does. It is back up to 22,000. Gold is up to an insane 205,000 net short contracts.  The good news is that J.P. Morgan is dropping their short positions, and leaving the other banks holding the bag. They own like 500 million ounces of silver bullion. This is the largest hoard on earth. When silver goes to Pluto, they will be, by far, the richest bank on earth. (Lower purple bars are commercial silver shorts.)

On the 2nd the COT report improved nicely. The Big Banks dropped 15,000 gold shorts, but are still net short an amazing 200,000 COMEX futures contracts. They dropped 5,000 silver shorts, and are now only 14,000 net short. Can this report be believed? There is no independent auditing. It makes no sense they are massively short gold, but hardly short silver anymore. This has happened before all to no avail. Just false hope for us. Chances are the commercials will load on the silver shorts just like they have loaded on the gold shorts. On the 9th the COT report showed the commercials are doing just that. They added 5,000 gold shorts, and are now 205,000 net short. They added 7,000 silver shorts, and are now 22,000 net short. Your poor old author is, again, short silver futures short term.  Both the HUI and GDX are in 19 month bear markets. The open interest is terrible... 538,000 gold contracts makes no sense. The short term is simply not good.




Consider Vice President Mike Pence’s remarks at last year’s AIPAC conference: “Every freedom-loving American stands with Israel — because her cause is our cause, her values are our values and her fight is our fight.”

Really? Every freedom-loving American stands with Israel? Her cause is our cause? Her values are our values? Her fight is our fight? All that is completely ridiculous. Israel is a Marxist theocracy run by Orthodox Jews. Her cause is to take over the entire Mideast- and then the rest of the world. The capital of the New World Order will be Jerusalem.  Her values are to murder innocent Palestinian men, women, and children. Our military forces are supposed to protect America, not Israel.




More than half of all U.S. senators and one third of all U.S. representatives attended the 2018 AIPAC Conference on March 4-6. Stop and think about that. Half of our senators and a third of our representatives pledged their primary allegiance to Israel.18,000 people from around the world were there. Many of our politicians gave speeches pledging unending fidelity and devotion to Israel over their loyalty to America. Israel owns our Congress lock, stock, and barrel.


  “If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” – James Madison


We should not have one soldier in the Mideast or any other country. We should not have one offshore military base. We are going to pay dearly for our slaughter of millions of people in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, and other countries.

Countries have karma, just like people have karma. Our karma is very, very, dark, and we will pay for the evil we've done. We have no business in any of these countries. The U.S., Saudi Arabia, and Israel created, maintain, and fund ISIS. There would be no ISIS if we hadn't made it. This is the way tyranny and oppression have come to America and will just increase. The Constitution and Bill of Rights have been shredded. The guns are being taken away step by step. The only thing standing between us and an outright police state is 100 million gun owners. That will end. Soon, we'll be a third world totalitarian back- water.




Geologists estimate there is fifteen times more available silver in the earth than gold. The traditional, historical ratio has always been about 15 to 1. Therefore, silver should be $88 today. You could buy long silver futures and sell short gold futures to profit as this ratio falls from the current 81 to 1 ratio. That is really to make a point, rather than to actually suggest doing it. Therefore, if gold goes to, say, $15,000 an ounce, you could expect silver to reach $1,000 an ounce. Of course a loaf of bread would probably be $50 or more at that point.

"If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention."



Sometimes you think you're in the Twilight Zone. The citizens of the People's Republic of California do not want to re-elect Diane Feinstein for her fifth term. She just isn't communist enough! Latino Kevin DeLeon is even more communist than she is. How can that be possible? Old Diane is 84, and definitely too old to hold office, but that isn't the reason for her rejection. Kevin somehow is just more communist than she is. Go figure! Diane personally got semi-automatic rifles banned in the state. Of course, she called them "assault weapons". She has spent the last 16 years making the state the most communist in the country. That just isn't good enough for the voters.





Senate bill S 2095 and House bill 5087 would ban everything but bolt action rifles. All the proposed pro-gun laws are now down the drain. There will be no concealed carry reciprocity from state to state. There will be no deregulated noise suppressors. No more states will allow concealed carry without a permit. Quite the opposite. We will see more and more gun laws passed. Bumpstocks are a media fraud. ALMOST NO ONE OWNS BUMPSTOCKS. They are very inaccurate. This is "spray and pray" rather than shooting. They are not popular at all. Have you ever once in your life met someone who owns a bumpstock? Banning them is ridiculous, but another step towards a total gun ban. Raising the purchase age to 21 is asinine. Imagine you are a 20 year old married man or woman with children, are in the military, and vote, but you can't buy a gun??? How does that make any sense?

The Senators below vote anti-gun all the time, every time. Must be a coincidence. While Jewish people are only 2.5% of the U.S. population, they are 10% of the U.S. Senate. A 400% over-representation. Bernie Sanders is missing from the photo gallery. All ten introduce anti-gun bills, co-sponsor anti-gun bills, and vote anti-gun 100% of the time.

"It is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice. For they cannot rule in any country where virtue and knowledge prevail." — Samuel Adams


Alexandre de Rothschild, aged 37, will now take over the kingdom. They have largely ruled the world for 200 years now. They dropped all their American stock and bond investments last year. Let's repeat that.... they completely disinvested all U.S. financials in 2017. Follow the winner here. Sell any stocks and bonds you have. Real estate is going to crash, too. Put your money in physical silver bullion you hold yourself. Do you really think you are smarter than the Rothschilds? They are the richest family on earth. They are hardcore Zionists, and were behind the infamous Balfour Declaration which gave Israel to the Jews. There are so many family members that it is impossible too estimate their total net worth. Some claim it is around $500 trillion dollars. That would be six times the entire world annual GNP. Here is just one example of their plans:

“In our dreams, we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present educational conventions fade from our minds, and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk”  ~John D Rockefeller, Sr. (1904)


"These men are NOT incompetent or stupid. If they were merely stupid, they would occasionally make a mistake in our favor." … James Forrestal




Tariffs and duties never help, and always hurt. This proves Trump is no real business-man at all. For example, if Indonesia can make cheaper and better umbrellas than Americans, then buy their umbrellas. Don't protect American umbrella manufacturers. That's how free markets work. Nothing beats free trade and free enterprise. America used to be the King of Steel. Trade unions destroyed that by giving outrageous salaries to steel workers.

We have 5% of the world population, but still produce 18% of the world Gross Domestic Product. Yes, we make over three times more than the rest of the world does. Back in 1985 we made 35% of the world GNP. We made SEVEN TIMES more than the rest of the world. We are failing badly. We produce HALF of what we used to make per capita almost sixty years later.




New York City is comprised of five boroughs of 302 square miles, and over 8.5 million people. Manhattan is only 33.6 square miles, and has 71,000 people per square mile. This is not conceivable at all. How can 71,000 people possibly exist in one single square mile? This is the most densely populated city in America by far. The five boroughs comprise 302 square miles and an incredible population of 8.5 million. That's 28,000 people per square mile. That isn't conceivable either. White people only reproduce at a rate of about 2.0 per couple. You need a rate of 2.2 just to maintain your numbers. All the population increase is due to non-white immigration and non-white high birth rates. Soon, America will no longer be a white country. Already five states are a majority of other races. Overpopulation is the biggest problem by far for the world. The continent of Africa out-breeds all the other countries by light years! China solved their high birth rate problem years ago by passing very strict laws. This earth would be a paradise if 94% of the population fell over dead today. We need to get rid of 94% of them to get down to the ideal number of 500 million. This planet was never meant for 7.4 billion people. Just imagine America with 19 million people- 6% of what we have now.



For sixty years government spending has skyrocketed. Things were reasonable until that Magic 1970 time period, as you can see by the chart above. Defense, non-defense, Social Insecurity, Medicare and Medicaid, other means, other expenses, and interest are killing us financially. This is what socialism and communism bring- POVERTY and a very poor standard of living. All this is going to collapse. This will be the world depression by far the world has ever seen.




Pill popping, drug addicted, serially married, psychotic Lisa Marie Presley is the daughter of Elvis Presley. He died in 1977 when she was 9 years old. He left her a $100 million trust. This would be about a half billion dollars today! Gasoline was only 62 cents a gallon back then. Her mother, Priscilla, was in Scientology for about 40 years. Lisa joined for a good while, and they took millions from her. Her daughter Riley is a hard core scientologist. Then her Jewish money manager, Barry Siegel, took many more millions. She is 49 years old now, has not only vaporized $100 million, but is $17 million in debt. She is suing him for $100 million. He is counter suing. Lisa is hopelessly psychotic. If a half billion dollars won't make you happy, it's obvious that money is not the Royal Road to Happiness.




Look at what has happened to housing prices in the last 5 years. The housing bubble may well burst this year. The dark blue states are the world. The medium blue states are average. The light blue are the least worst. ­­­­The last housing bubble burst in 2008. This one will be much worse. We know what is going to happen, but we don't know when. Just watch for the signs and you'll know when it's close. Already some California (the worst state) homes have fallen in value, especially in San Francisco. This is our warning. This collapse will spread to the east coast like a plague.



This is very important. Europe will fall  before we do. They will be our warning. We do not need to worry about an economic collapse until Greece, Italy, Spain, France and Germany collapse first. Of course, there will be many other EU countries that will also implode. Greece is total disaster, with a 179% debt to GNP ratio. Italy is almost as bad with a 132% ratio. Germany is the strongest country in Europe, but still has a 64% debt to GNP. The American banks won't close, and the stock markets won't fall like dominoes until all this happens in Europe. BE THANKFUL! You can see tomorrow if you just take a good hard look at today.



Gas, oil, and coal supply 84% of our energy needs every day. There is no such thing as “fossil fuels”. Gas, oil, and coal  did not come from rotting plants and animals. That’s too preposterous to even discuss. There is no “energy crisis” and never has been. We have 1,000 years of known coal reserves on our own soil. We have 100 years of know oil re-serves and another 100 years of gas reserves. We repeat endlessly: 1) there is no wattage in sunlight, 2) it takes more energy to produce biofuels than you get back- a net loss, and 3) windmills have failed totally all over the world. You can make any fuel you want from coal for $2 a gallon with the SASOL process. Those “evil nazis” invented this back in the early 1940s. The government won’t allow one SASOL plant to be built though.

Without hydrocarbons (they are not "fossil fuels") we would all starve to death and freeze to death and live in the Stone Age.




1) Thou shalt worship the government. Create endless massive government spending, budget deficits, high taxes of all kinds, printing worthless "money", cashlessness, and all regulatory schemes to increase government control over our lives.

2) Blame all problems caused by the First Commandment on the rich businessmen. Always promise the poor more welfare while you continually increase government power.

3) Murder unborn babies and call them mere "fetuses". Allow this murder even into the 9th month. Unborn babies are just tissues. Then sell the bodies to laboratories.

4) Always promote Godlessness, perversion, sickness, degeneracy, immorality, depravity, homosexuality, promiscuity, adultery, pornography, satanism, and pedophilia.

5) Do everything possible to ban all guns. Use "the children" as an excuse to pass gun confiscation laws. Only the police and military need guns.

6) Promote miscegenation, racial intermarriage, and the end of the white race under the guise of "diversity". The ultimate goal is One Light Brown Race, instead of a rainbow of races. Always support hatred of whites as the most evil race on earth.

8) Support legal and illegal immigration, so all countries will have One Light Brown Race. Call illegal immigrants "dreamers" and those who oppose this haters and xenophobes. Always promote racial diversity. The ultimate goal is a One World Order with Israel as capital.

9) Obliterate the differences between men and women. Feminize men and masculinize women. There are no differences between the sexes. The traditional family is outdated and extinct.

10) Promote fake science such as global warming, the Big Bang theory, Darwinism as the New Religions. Destroy Christianity and other religions.  




Can you comprehend $2 quadrillion? That is the total unfunded debt liabilities of this earth. The total GNP of this planet is a mere $80 trillion. America still produces about $14 trillion of this.  This is 17% even though we have only 5% of the world population. Every country is in a currency race to the bottom with money printing. Not one country on earth has real money, just colored toilet paper.

After all these years of massive money printing, the world has achieved no real growth. In the meantime global debt, unfunded liabilities and derivatives included, becomes a total liability for the world of $2 quadrillion. With global GDP at $80 trillion this means that total liabilities to GDP is 2,400%. This will be a worldwide economic collapse. The citizens will pay this debt in the form of a worldwide depression. No country will be spared.




Look at this wealth inequality chart from 1962 to 2014. Yes, this has continued for the last four years after the chart ends in 2014. Wealth inequality is a hallmark of any Third World country. 1% at the top and 99% serfs. The red line shows the top 1% get richer and richer every year. The black line shows the bottom 90% get poorer and poorer every year. You cannot argue with facts.  The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. This does NOT happen in a free enterprise economy. We no longer have a free enterprise economy. We now have "crony capitalism". For over a half century this has gone on.




The entire DJI is about to collapse, but some stock are in manic blow off phases. Such well known companies as Amazon, Netflix, Sears, and Cisco are in blow off tops and about to crash. Here are AMZN and Sears charts so you can see it clearly.



This 52 year chart proves America now is seriously, no kidding aside a socialist country. Government social benefits have exploded! From a mere 1.5% to a current 22%. It should be 0%. The government shouldn't be in the welfare or social engineering business. We are no longer a free market federal republic. We are not a "democracy", never have been a democracy, and were never intended to be a democracy. There has never been a real democracy on the face of the earth. We used to be a federal republic. Until that Magic Time of about 1970 we spent minimal amount of taxes on socialist programs.



Maxine has been a U.S. Representative from the People's Republic for 27 years now.  She makes $174,000 a year, but it known to be worth about $6 million. Golly gosh, how did she accomplish that? Nothing illegal, unethical, or immoral certainly. Her main house alone is worth $4.5 million. She is famous to making incredibly stupid remarks in public. Trump recently called her "Low I.Q. Maxine"


Folks, this is not a joke She really said this:



Gold will have to reach $1.4 million an ounce when derivatives implode to have real world valuation. Senile in Omaha Buffett said, "Derivatives are weapons of mass economic destruction." They have no value, are backed by nothing, and are impossible to even define clearly. This is the largest economic market on earth, but is no regulated. The largest legitimate, regulated market is bonds. There shouldn't be one penny invested in derivatives much less $1.5 quadrillion. Some claim it is really $500 trillion. Since they are unregulated, who knows? We do know when (not if) they implode the entire world economy goes down with them.

Meanwhile, America is working with Israel and Saudi Arabia to invade Syria. Russia, China, Iran, and a whole list of other countries are just not going to tolerate this. We have no business at all in Syria or any other country. The Founding Fathers said, "Friendships with all, but alliances with none." We have over 1,000 offshore military bases (include the ones in Iraq and Afghanistan) now. We should have none at all. WE CANNOT AFFORD THIS. Aside from the evil of murdering people in sovereign countries, we don't have the money. We're broke. The American Empire is dead. The Israeli Empire will soon be dead. These are the only two empires on earth now. Nuclear war is on the horizon. We will be completely and totally obliterated. We're outnumbered many times to one. We have no allies, and the rest of the world hates us. You cannot call countries like England and France "allies" at all. Trump is appointing psychotic neo-con John Bolton at National Security. Bolton is a gentile Zionist sock puppet whose loyalty is to Israel. This will guarantee more wars in the Mideast.


Buy all the semi-automatic rifles you can afford. Buy all the large cap magazines you can afford. Buy all the ammunition you can afford.


Be prepared. Be read for what is coming. Buy all the silver bullion you can. We know what is coming, but we don't know when. Prep and prep some more. See you in April.
