"The world wishes to be deceived." … Sebastian Franck

 

It's the 3rd. If silver closes under $14.40 and gold under $1,200 they area going down. If the HUI closes under 139 the miners are going down. There are a lot of bottom callers out there who claim August 16 was the Final Bottom. This includes Dennis Gartman, Bill Holter, Jim Sinclair, Bix Weir David Morgan and many others. Your author is still short 20 silver futures contracts at $14.55. It is the 4th. Silver collapsed and went under $14.00 briefly. Gold fell to $1,190. The HUI collapsed to 137. Breaking 140 was the death knell for the mining stocks.

On the 7th the COT report was absolutely stunning! It has never been this good in a quarter century. The commercials are now net long 6,500 gold contracts. They are net long an incredible 15,000 silver contracts!!! The silver OI is still 212,000. So, why is your poor old author still short 20 silver contracts? Why isn't he jumping up and down screaming, "back up the truck!, back up the truck!"? There are several reasons. The COT is only one factor. The COT is not audited. The OI is very high. There is no support for the metals or miners anywhere. The trend is clearly and strongly down for the metals and the miners. Silver fell to $9 in 2008, $13 in 2015. You never pick tops or bottoms. You always go with the trend. The metals and  miners are NOT reacting positively to this absolutely incredible COT report. That tells you all you need to know.

On the 14th the commercials are now at a ZERO position with gold, and 12,000 net long silver. None of this is making sense of course. Gold cannot hold $1,200 and silver is going to crash thru $14. Don't think that the $13 low in 2015 will hold either.

 

ALL FREE COUNTRIES EVENTUALLY COLLAPSE

 

The author here should have never used the word "democracy". The term "free republic" or "democratic republic". would be much more accurate. There has never been an actual democracy on the face of the earth. He's saying history proves that any free country will eventually collapse when the voters want something for nothing. America is finished after 242 years. The Constitution and Bill of Rights have been destroyed. We now live in a socialist police state that just gets worse every day. There is nowhere to go. Don't kid yourself there is some "haven" somewhere out there. No, there isn't. We now live on one huge Prison Planet with 7.6 billion inmates. This was written over 100 years ago:

 

“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”


CHUCK BALDWIN FINALLY TELLS THE TRUTH

 

All his life Chuck refused to speak honestly about Israel. He was a shameless Zionist sock puppet and Israeli apologist. Last year he finally got the courage to tell the truth. This is an example from his last newsletter. He sends out a free weekly newsletter. Donate to him if you want. He sees very clearly that Trump IS the problem, not the answer. He IS the Deep State, and not fighting it. The Republicans and Democrats are just two sides of the same Republicrat party.

 

Trump has had almost two years to draw down America’s phony “War on Terror.” Instead, he has expanded it. He has had almost two years to extract our troops from Afghanistan and Syria. Instead, he has multiplied the numbers of U.S. troops in both countries. He has had almost two years to stop sending billions of dollars’ worth of military aid to the terrorist states of Saudi Arabia and Israel. Instead, he has sent record-level amounts of taxpayer dollars in military assistance to the terrorist states of Saudi Arabia and Israel. He has had almost two years to expose the military-industrial complex. Instead, he has enriched, entrenched and enabled the military-industrial complex beyond any President before him. Don’t tell me that Donald Trump is fighting the Deep State. NONSENSE!

 

Significant events are preceded by signs that they are about to happen.”

Great events cast their shadows before them. You can see tomorrow if you just pay attention to what is happening today. If you open your eyes you know what is ahead of us, but we just don't know when. We don't have to know when; we just have to know what. A dollar crash. A stock crash. A bond crash. A housing crash (already happening), A worldwide financial crash. More wars. Eventually nuclear wars.


 "We have achieved the Orwellian prediction - enslaved, the people have been programmed to love their bondage and are left to clutch only mirage-like images of freedom, its fables and fictions.  The new slaves are linked together by vast electronic chains of television that imprison not their bodies but their minds.  Their desires are programmed, their tastes manipulated, their values set for them. "


IS THE DOLLAR GOING TO COLLAPSE?

 

Something most unusual is happening with u.s. dollar futures. In the last six months the dollar has basically risen from 89 to 95. However, the commercials have been extremely short. We think the commercials are "smart money". Are they really? In March they were merely about 3,000 net short. In April they were about 2,100 net short. In May this went to about 5,000 net short. In June this jumped to 23,000 net short. In July this jumped to 30,000 net short. Then in August an amazing 40,000 net short! They are hemorrhaging. The dollar would have to collapse tomorrow, and go to very low levels just for them to break even. Supposedly there are about $1.7 trillion dollars worldwide.  Who knows what is going on? Is the dollar about to crash badly from the 95 level, or are the Big Banks taking a major bath?

 

“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.

 

AMERICA AND ISRAEL ARE THE ONLY TWO EMPIRES TODAY

 

The following is from Egon Von Greyerz. You can get a free weekly subscription to his newsletter at If you want an excellent, first rate free newsletter write to Egon Von Greyerz at: subscriptions@goldswitzerland.com. He really is on the money about the world economy.

 

The British Empire started in the 17th century, and reached its peak in the 19th century during Queen Victoria’s reign. By the end of the 19th century, The British Empire included nearly 20% of the land surface of the world, and 25% of the world’s population. So, Britain, which is less than 0.5% of the world’s land surface area, controlled an empire which was more than 50 times greater. So, by using slave labor, and by stealing the resources of 20% of the world, it is no wonder that Britain was the wealthiest nation for several centuries. But, like all empires, Britain carried the seeds of its own destruction. All empires – Mongolian, Roman, Ottoman or British etc. – eventually overstretch their resources both militarily and financially. This combined with decadence, and illusions of grandeur, eventually leads to the collapse of an empire.

This is what's happening with America and Israel now. We have the seeds of our own self destruction. America will soon be a Third World backwater, like the United Kingdom. Israel will be a glass desert. Good old Henry Kissinger last year said, "Israel won't exist in ten years.".



HYDROCARBONS SUPPLY 84% OF OUR ENERGY

 

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. They are hydrocarbons, and were formed when the earth was formed. 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 known oil reserves, and another 100 years of gas reserves. There is no "peak oil" (or gas). The mere 4% "renewables" cost far more to produce than they return. They are worse than useless. We repeat endlessly: 1) solar costs ten times as much, 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. They want an energy crisis. The government wants to control every facet of your life. Abundant energy is a bar to that.


Both Commiefornia and Hawaii have pledged to be, "100% hydrocarbon free" in the next 25 years. Preposterous! Ridiculous! Asinine! They will revert to caveman status. The 40 million people in Commiefornia will flee like rats when they realize they have no electricity.

 

TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR LIBERALS

 

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. Tell the sheeple 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 colorful 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 and inclusiveness. 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. Tell the masses there are no differences between the sexes. Tell them the traditional family is outdated and extinct.

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

 

UNITED SOCIALIST STATES OF AMERICA- U.S.S.A.

 

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.

THE HOUSING CRASH STARTED OVER SIX MONTHS AGO



This is the DJUSHB Dow Home Construction Index. You can see the housing crash quietly started a long time ago. Look at any of the big home builder stock charts, and you will see they just aren't building houses anymore. This time you will see a 50% crash in home prices. This will be much worse than the 2008 crash.

 

ALL THE MASS SHOOTINGS ARE GOVERNMENT HOAXES

 

No one died at Sandy Hoax. No one died at the Pulse night club. Stephen Paddock didn't shoot anyone in Las Vegas. No students died at Parkland High School. These are all DHS Hollywood productions to put an end to gun ownership.



WE'RE HOPELESSLY UP TO OUR NECKS IN DEBT

 

*Americans have more than $1 trillion in credit-card debt.

*They have another $1.5 trillion in student loans, up from $1.1 trillion in 2013.

*Motor vehicle loans are now topping $1.1 trillion, up from $878.5 billion in 2013.

*They have another nearly $15 trillion in mortgage debt outstanding.

*The National Debt is north of $200 trillion, not the official ridiculous $20 trillion figure the media always trots out. Most newsletter writers are so stupid they also quote the $20 trillion figure.

WORLD POPULATION GOING TO 9.8 BILLION BY 2050

 

The biggest problem we face is over population. We should have a mere 500 million people on earth instead of  7.6 billion. We are FIFTEEN TIMES overpopulated. Yes, 94% have to go, one way or another. Imagine only a half billion people on earth. Imagine America with only 19 million people! In 1950 there were "only" 2.8 billion people on earth. That is still 560% too many people. That's 5.6 X too many people right there. A half billion would be the ideal. Now there are 7.6 billion on earth. In the next 32 years the scientific prediction is for 9.8 billion. That is 19,600% too many people.  That is almost TWENTY times too many.

There are now 15,200% too many people on earth- 15.2 times too many. 94% have to go.

The most humane way would be severe birth control in Africa, India, Philippines, and the other over-breeding nations. China did this a long time ago. They are not even maintaining their numbers in China now. Nuclear warfare and biowarfare engineered epidemics and plagues will take care of much of the overpopulation problem. Mandatory birth control may be extreme, but it beats the alternatives.

 

AMERICA HAS OVER 1,000 OFFSHORE MILITARY BASES

 

Russia has 2 offshore military bases. China has less than a dozen (it's hard to get exact information on this). AMERICA HAS OVER 1,000. Yes, you- the taxpayer- support over one thousand offshore military bases. All for no good reason. We've been reporting a mere 850 bases, but this number has exploded. We are the Evil Empire, the World Warmonger, the Great Satan. Most wars are started by nations which are under economic pressure domestically. The US, Israel, and the UK fit that scenario perfectly. This is the ideal backdrop for pretending that there is a major global conflict, and diverting the attention to wars in the Mideast. Mad Dog Mattis finally admitted we have no proof at all that Assad used chemical weapons against his own people. He finally admitted it. There was no proof because it never happened. Now we are making the same false claims as an excuse to attack Syria. Russia, China, and Iran will not allow that. We are on the edge of nuclear war because of American imperialism and war mongering. America is the problem. We went from the greatest nation on earth to the most evil.



THE DOLLAR HAS COLLAPSED IN THE LAST 38 YEARS


My gosh! The dollar was $1.60 38 years ago. Now it it 95. You can expect it to fall below 70 and keep falling. Remember the dollar has lost 97% of it's value in the last 105 years since the Federal Reserve fraud was put in place. Yes, the dollar is now worth THREE CENTS due to the Fed hoax.

 

America is doing everything possible to attack Syria. We have already claimed transparent fake chemical attacks on the Syrian people by Assad. We're doing it again. China, Russia, and Iran are not going to tolerate this. We are provoking nuclear war. NO ONE WANTS WAR BUT AMERICA, ISRAEL, AND SAUDI ARABIA. We have no allies other than our lap dogs France and the U.K. ­­­­­­



JIM RICKARDS IS NOT ONE OF US                                      

In 2016 Jim wrote a book The New Case for Gold. He pretends to be one of us, when actually he is a paid disinformation agent. You know, like Alex Jones. Sometimes things just aren't what they seem. He spends endless millions online promoting his misleading books. The ADS for the books are great though. Totally misleading but so well done.

He claims we have all 8,000 tons of gold in Ft. Knox and West Point. Federal law re-quires that an honest, independent and total audit be done every 10 years. Well, none has been done since 1953- SIXTY FIVE YEARS WITH NO AUDIT. He claims the government doesn't do an audit because they doesn't want the public to pay attention to gold. How totally asinine! Did you know we used to have 20,000 tons of gold in 1950. Now we have none. That's a fact- we have no gold. It's been gone for over a half century. Yes, that means the dollar has no value whatsoever. Counterfeit green toilet paper. Actually, every currency on earth is in a race to the bottom. The government doesn't like gold be-cause it exposes their counterfeiting program.

He claims the Federal Reserve performs a legitimate function, and has massive real as-sets. They don't. They are not federal and have no reserves. They merely print counterfeit money out of thin air. This is the biggest financial hoax the world has ever seen. The "Fed" is owned by twelve private Zionist banks. Since they took over in 1913, the dollar has lost 97% of it's value. Rickards never brings up facts like this. He won't even expose the Biggest Con in history. Again, the dollar is worth three cents, and the "Fed" stole the other 97 cents.

He's so stupid he says currencies, cyber currencies and the IMF SDRs (special drawing rights) are all real money. Only gold and silver are real money, nothing else. He never talks about silver, and it simply doesn't exist in his world. Remember, the Pound Sterling was the world reserve currency for decades, and was based on silver, not gold.

He also claims the BIS (Bank for International Settlements) and IMF (International Monetary Fund) are legitimate organizations that provide valid functions. Both are just more con jobs for the One World Order. He claims the FDIC can cover the losses of Americans if there is a bank crash. Liar. Actually they could barely cover 1% of the losses. This guy is totally psychotic.

He agrees that gold and silver prices are manipulated, but puts most of the blame on hedge funds, ETFs, and leasing, more than the COMEX. Really?

The worst part is he suggests repeatedly putting a mere 10% of your assets into gold (and none into silver). That's the same as  nothing! The rest should be in stocks, bonds and real estate- the three very "assets" that are overdue to collapse. He does admit 99% of all gold and silver holdings are paper, and not real bullion held by the owner. That's why you must have actual silver bullion you hold personally.

He claims the national debt is a mere 18 trillion- the official government number- when it is really more than TWELVE TIMES that much... over $200 trillion. Yes, the real nat-ion8al debt is up to $200 trillion,, which couldn't be paid off in 1,000 years.

He's such a lying anal orifice that he claims Russia "invaded Crimea". The fact is 98% of the Crimeans voted to remain part of Russia. Yes, in a free vote 98 out of 100 wanted to remain with Russia. He also says Iran is evil, is developing nuclear weapons, and we  need to bomb them! Obviously, he is just a slick neocon working for the NWO. Do not read his books, and don't be taken in by the very well done advertisements.

HURRICANE FLORENCE WAS THE BIGGEST MEDIA HOAX IN HISTORY

"Hurricane" Florence was the biggest weather media fraud in history. It was a hurricane until it landed. Then it became a mere tropical storm with 60 mph winds. You must have 74 mph sustained winds just for a category 1 hurricane. The media claimed it  would be "The worse Carolina storm in U.S. history. And, "The financial damages would be worse than Katrina".  And, Biggest flooding in North Carolina history". There was no hurricane, just a long tropical storm with a lot of rain and wind. There was almost zero property damage. Real hurricanes have massive property damage. The 15 "deaths" were normal events like heart attacks. Weathermen faked being blown around by 30 mph winds on TV. Millions of people evacuated for no good reason at all. Hurricanes are a way of life in the coastal Carolinas. Power was purposely shut down on the 14th, so the Rant will be late. It was just a bad tropical storm with 60 mph winds and lots of rain. We stay heavily prepped 24/7. We had a good time but missed the Internet.

See you  in October. Be ready. Stay prepped. This tropical storm is a good example. Keep your powder dry and silver prices will fall below $14. Be prepared. Nothing good is ahead of us. Be aware, pay attention, and you can see tomorrow.
