"To disarm the people...is the most effectual way to enslave them."  - George Mason


The term "democracy" is a joke. There has never once ever been a democracy anywhere on the face of this earth. We live in a democratic federal republic, not a "demo-crazy".

All democratic systems self destruct after about 200 years. We started self destructing right around the 1970 area, almost 50 years ago. H.L. Mencken was brilliant, the "sage of Baltimore".

There is nothing the government can give you that it didn't take from you in the first place.

GOLD – THE ONLY MONEY THAT CAN’T BE DEBASED

 

Now subscribe to his free weekly newsletter. Egon's only problem is he ignores silver. The title should be "Gold and silver- the only money that can't be debased". He doesn't seem to realize silver is FIVE TIMES better than gold. Silver will return to it's traditional historical 15 to 1 ratio to gold. Why? Because that's how it's been for thousands of years. That is their natural ratio of occurrence in the earth. That's why. He omitted the fact silver was about $21 in 1980- 38 years ago. $21 in 1980 is at least $80 in today's "money", and probably more. Now it can't even hold $17. Meanwhile the world assets have gone up 26 fold, while silver (and gold) has dropped in value. SILVER IS THE MOST UNDERVALED ASSET ON EARTH, not gold. You want to buy the most undervalued assets on earth, and sell the most overvalued- stocks, bonds, real estate and other PAPER. All paper will be worth paper. Never forget that. Buy value and hold for the long term is the Royal Road to Wealth. Be right and sit tight.

NORMAN THOMAS PREDICTED SOCIALISM 70 YEARS AGO

 

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism”, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened”.  - Norman Thomas (U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate from 1928 to 1948)

 

 

ITALY WILL BE A MAJOR WARNING.

Venezuela has collapsed. Brazil and Argentina are collapsing. Italy, is collapsing and will be a major warning for us. We will get lots of warnings, but Italy is very important. Great events cast their shadows before them. You can see a lot of dark shadows now. Take a good look at today and you can see tomorrow. It only gets worse from here. Derivatives collapse. Bonds collapse. Real estate collapses. Dollar collapse is happening now.. Stock collapse. The Great Global Reset is coming. The greatest transfer of wealth the world has ever seen.

ALL THE SILVER IN THE WORLD- 30,000 TONS


­­

 

ONLY 1% OF PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAVE REAL BULLION

 

­­This is it folks...all the silver in the world in a pictorial. That's all there is .less than 30,000 tons. The most undervalued asset on earth. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Every year there is a silver deficit. Mining cannot possibly keep up with investment and industrial demand. Both increase every year.

All paper will be worth paper. Only 1% of all gold and silver holdings are real bullion physically held by the owners. That means no storage vaults, unsafe deposit boxes, ETFs, mining shares, and the like.

 

The COT report on the 1st was bad again. The commercials added 21,000 gold shorts, and are now net short 137,000 contracts. They added 4,000 silver shorts, and are now 35,000 net short contracts. The silver open interest is an insane 210,000 contracts. On the 8th the commercials added 2,000 gold shorts, and are now 134,000 net short. They added 1,000 silver shorts, and are now 37,000 net short. The silver open interest is an insane 230,000 contracts. This is a bad sign. The miners are not affirming silver at all. Only silver is going up. The RSI (relative strength index) is about 70, and this is a bad sign.        The silver miners index (SIL) is not confirming the big rise in silver. The HUI is in a multiyear bear market. Your poor, old author is still short 20 silver futures contracts. Some analysts feel we're going to see the Final Bottom this Fall.

 

June 15 newsflash: Gold and silver crashed badly today, just as we warned you. The COT report was insane for silver. They added 6,000 gold shorts, and are now 141,000 contracts net short. They added a mind boggling 30,000 silver shorts, and are now a massive 67,000 net short. Gold, silver and the miners are going lower folks. Usually, the best time to buy silver is when you have money in your pocket. Just relax and we'll see lower prices coming. There is simply no support for metals or miners, and this could go on for months. Only time will tell. The short and medium term do not look good.

 

In 1987 the Dow crashed 22%. Today that would mean a loss of 5,500 points. The FANG stocks are now the FAANG stocks...Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet, Netflix, and Google. Their combined market capitalization is more than the entire GNP of major countries. This is complete insanity folks. The biggest stock bubble in the history of the world It could burst any day. We know what is going to happen, but we don't know WHEN. Doesn't matter. Just be out of the stock market. Sell your 401k/IRA, take the penalty, and buy silver bullion you hold yourself.

The Great Reset is coming. Derivatives, bonds, stocks, real estate, and paper gold and silver will all crash and burn. This will be the greatest transfer of wealth the world has ever seen. Jamie Dimon and JPM are sitting on 500 million ounces of physical silver bullion. They're laughing at the 7.6 billion sheeple.


CAN JEWISH PEOPLE BE ANTI-SEMITIC?

 

Roseanne Barr has been loudly criticized for telling "anti-Semitic" jokes. Did anyone bother to tell you she is Orthodox Jewish, and her Russian family name is Borisofsky?

To criticize a Jew for telling anti-Semitic jokes is rather ludicrous. Roseanne is worth over $80 million, so she could care less if her show was cancelled.

From Dr. Lasha Darkmoon: “I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government,” Jewish columnist Joel Stein wrote in the Los Angeles Times in December 2008. “I just care that we get to keep running them.”

He lost his job after telling the truth.

Kate Spade was worth $150 million. Today her firm is worth $2.4 billion. She started with $35,000 to open a women's purse business. She was on both an anti-anxiety and an anti-depression drug. 1 in 4 women over 50 in America are on some kind of psych drug. She killed herself. That's what these drugs do.

Tattooed Jewish dope addict chef Anthony Bourdain also killed himself. He was 61 and looked 81. He openly admitted on one of his shows that money and fame just don't make for happiness.

Speaking of suicide and the rich, Joan Rivers was the funniest comedian the world has ever seen. This is a profession dominated by men. She had been unhappy all her life. She was going to shoot herself one day, but her little dog jumped up on the bed and sat on her gun. She saw that as a sign, and said, "who will take care of Spike if I die?" She left a fortune of $150 million.

 

A DIRECT DOCUMENTED QUOTE- JEWS CONTROL AMERICA

 

In 2001 Ariel Sharon said “Every time we do something you tell me Americans will do this and will do that. I want to tell you something very clear, don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”

 

SATANYAHU'S APPROVAL RATING COLLAPSED TO ONLY 38%

Even the Israeli citizens are sick and tired of him and his evil Likud party murdering unarmed men, women and children. Only 38% are satisfied with his performance. 50% want a new prime minister. America has never had a president with this dismal 38% rating. He went on to say,

“Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away.”

 

FT. KNOX HASN'T BEEN AUDITED SINCE 1953- 65 YEARS!!!

 

Lying, sleazy disinformatoin agent Jim Rickards says the government doesn't want to call attention to gold. They don't want the public to be aware of the relentless inflation. The dollar has lost 97% of its value since the Federal Reserve was formed 105 years ago. Therefore. he says, they don't audit Ft. Knox and West Point vaults. That is too stupid to comment on. Federal law requires a full and total audit every 10 years. This has not been done in over 60 years now. THERE IS NO GOLD!!! WE HAVE NO GOLD!!!

 

JOE SCARBOROUGH JOINS US

 

“I've always been a 100% supporter of Israel. This continued killing of women and children in an indiscriminate way. I am sorry,” said Joe Scarborough. “This is asinine. This is bad. Of course it is tragic for the Palestinian people. It is bad for the Israeli people. We cannot be associated with this if this continues. This is so bad not only for the Israeli people, BUT FOR US.” Expect his Morning Joe show to disappear.


U.N. DECLARES TRUMP'S DECISION ON JERUSALEM NULL & VOID

 

The United Nations General Assembly voted 138 to 9 declaring Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel "null and void" and without and validity at all. 35 countries abstained after being threatened by America. Isn't that pitiful. America is now the most hated nation on earth. We have no friends, lost Germany, and only France and the U.K. are our foolish lapdogs.

 

100 MILLION WORKING AGE AMERICANS NOT WORKING???

The official unemployment rate is "3.8%". The real rate is over 5 times that. How can we have 102 million working age citizens with no job? It has never been this bad since 1929. Sure, some of these people are students, housewives, early retired and other legitimate reasons for not working. The real unemployment rate is over 22%. John Williams at www.shadowstats.com reports real statistics like this. This 30 year chart says it all.


MURDER MAP OF AMERICA



The red zones are where the murders occur. Note that southern California is the murder capital of the country. California is the first state to have a non-white majority. Yes, this is race based, and FBI statistics prove it overwhelmingly.  The murder rate for white Americans is actually very low. The incarceration rate for whites is also very low, especially violent crimes. The murder rates, violent crime rates, and incarceration rates for blacks and Latinos is overwhelming.

S 720 ISRAEL ANTI-BOYCOTT BILL

You will be put in federal prison for 20 years (must serve 17 years minimum) and fined $1 million just for requesting information about boycotting Israeli products.

Senate bill S720 would make it a felony for Americans to support the international boycott against Israel, commonly known as BDS. Anyone guilty of violating the prohibitions will face a minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in federal prison (serve 17 years minimum) just for requesting information about boycotting Israeli goods. This legislation would “bar U.S. persons from supporting boycotts against Israel, including its settlements in the Palestinian Occupied Territories conducted by international governmental organizations, such as the United Nations and the European Union. It would also... include penalties for simply requesting information about such boycotts. Violations would be subject to a minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison....This bill would impose civil and criminal punishment on individuals solely because of their political beliefs about Israel and its policies.”

Israel also passed a law banning photographing and video recording their soldiers murdering unarmed babies, women, children and medical personnel. 10 years in jail for documenting murdering IDF psychopaths.

Meanwhile, the state of Connecticut passed a bill that Holohoax indoctrination is now mandatory in every school. Education about something that never happened?  There was no "holocaust". There were no gas chambers. Six million Jews were never killed. If you think all that is true just read one of the many books such as Myth of the 6 Million and the Hoax of the 20th Century. Or Google "the Holocaust never happened". From 1941 to 1948 the Jewish population INCREASED about 600,000 people. This is right from the World Almanac. If six million were killed there would have been a population loss of millions. Facts are funny things. The state of South Carolina passed a law banning any criticism of Israel or Jews. The state of Connecticut passed a bill that Holohoax education is now mandatory in every school. Education about something that never happened?

“The truth fears no investigation, only LIES need laws to protect them.”

SICKEST TV SHOW IN HISTORY- Pose

Sundays at 9:00 on FX you can watch the height of sickness and degeneracy with the new show Pose. Yes, it's about the LGBTQ community. Don't forget the "Q". Words fail in trying to describe the vacuous, vain, narcissistic, self absorbed, egomanic, depraved, perverted, twisted, shallow, self absorbed warped, celebration of homosexuality and sexual aberrations worshipped here.

11th LARGEST BANK IN THE WORLD BANKRUPT

Deutsche Bank is the 11th largest bank in the world. About two years ago we told you it was hopelessly bankrupt and would collapse. Well, the stock is down to a mere $11 and it will soon collapse. It was $42 a few years ago. This "too big to fail" theory is a lot of baloney. Nothing on earth can bail out a failed bank this massive. Nothing. "Black Swan" events like this have extreme repercussions. The world banking system is a financial chain, and one broken link can bring down all of them. The world banks are anything but "independent", no matter what country they are in. This will have a domino effect. Get your money out of the bank, and keep it out of the bank. Have a small checking account to pay bills and nothing else.

THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS A MERE HOBBY



This couple is absolute proof liberalism is a mental disease. She thinks the Second Amendment is a "hobby". She thinks if you own a gun you will come to her house and kill her. Did you know NRA members have an almost zero crime rate? Did you know that people with concealed carry permits have a lower crime rate than police officers? Yes, they commit less crimes than police officers. People with a full auto machine gun license have a ZERO crime rate. Countries with the strictest laws against guns have the highest crime rates overall. The more guns, the less crime. The less guns, the more crime.

THE STOCK MARKET HAS ONLY GONE UP DUE TO INFLATION

 

This is a 100 year chart of the Dow Jones (red line) and currency in circulation (blue line). Look at the Magic 1970 area we keep talking about. Everything was fine until about 1970. Then the Fed started endlessly counterfeiting green toilet paper. You can see from this chart the stock market has NOT GONE UP IN REAL TERMS OF VALUE. Only due to inflation. You make nothing being invested in the general stock markets. 

Silver was only $1.63 in 1970. You didn't know that did you? See how silver retains it's value over the decades? Silver is the most undervalued asset on earth. We still had real silver coins in 1970 and real Silver Certificates for U.S. dollars (until June 1968). How things change!


THE ENTIRE WORLD IS DROWNING IN DEBT



Look at this 19 year chart. Global debt has tripled in this time. We are all drowning in debt. The Great Reset is coming. Every currency will fail. Every stock market will crash. All bonds in the world will fall. The world derivatives market dwarfs the entire world GNP. That will implode to zero value. Real estate will crash and burn. 99% of gold and silver are merely paper. All paper will be worth paper. Only those with real gold and silver bullion they hold personally will thrive and prosper. Like JPM, Jamie Dimon and their 500 million ounces of vault stored silver bullion. All debt get paid all the time every time, either by the buyer or the seller. We keep repeating there is no such thing as an unpaid debt. Doesn't exist.

 

Those entrapped by the herd instinct are drowned in the deluges of history. But there are always the few who observe, reason, and take precautions, and thus escape the flood. For these few gold and silver have been the assets of last resort.

 

STEVE JOBS LOVES LSD!


Steve Jobs know the power of psychedelic drugs. Thanks for ZR Quotes for this. Surprisingly, zerohedge.com did an entire article on LSD. Today LSD and mushrooms are not very popular as they were 50 years ago.

Surprisingly, zerohedge.com just did an entire story The Political Significance of LSD. They discussed the therapeutic value of LSD, MDA/MMDA, and magic mushrooms.

Readers over 60 may be very familiar with psychedelics. Millenials rarely so.

 

U.S. DOLLAR FINISHED AS THE WORLD RESERVE CURRENCY



You can see Portugal had the world reserve currency. Then Spain. Then the Netherlands. Then France. Britain had the Pound Sterling (based on silver, not gold) until World War II. America had the world reserve currency until we started printing counterfeit "money" at the Fed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week The entire world is abandoning the dollar. They know it is worthless.

 

WHO CARES ABOUT CANADA? WE SHOULD



Why should we care if Canada falls off the earth? Because they are a warning to us. Their housing bubble is bursting. That is a warning to us that we are next. They are in debt up to their eyeballs, just as California is. This is a warning that California is next. California collapsing is a warning that the other 49 states are next. We are getting lots of dire warning TODAY, and will get even more warnings and far worse ones. Italy is another huge warning to us. All banks are interconnected like dominoes. Any bank failure affects all the others. Italy is about to collapse along with Greece, Portugal and other EU countries. All of them will be warnings to us.

 

See you in July. The Rant was 2 days late. Prepare for the future. Be ready. Be prepared. Do all  you can to be ready for what is coming. We can clearly see what is coming, but we just don't know when. If you are prepared, the "when" doesn't matter.
