The British are buying gold, post-Brexit

The British are buying gold, post-Brexit. Some buyers are putting 40% to 50% of their net worth into gold. Peter Schiff reports;

British Pouring Up to Half of Their Net-Worth Into Gold

Historically, the British haven’t been too keen on gold. Now that post-Brexit, the future is so unknown and the effect on the economy so uncertain, they are seeking a safe haven in both gold and silver to protect their net worth. They are worried about bank failures and inflation. They are worried about losing their life savings.

Reuters reports on one London-based property developer who said “the current sense of panic over the UK financial system was unlike anything he had ever seen.

‘I just can’t believe what’s going on,’ he said, asking not to be named. ‘Projects that were meant to happen now haven’t and the last thing I would do right now is buy another property.’

Instead, he has bought £350,000 worth of gold and plans to hold it for at least the next two years.”

Britain’s departure from the European Union could send shock waves across the global economy and threaten more than a trillion dollars in investment and trade with the United States, reports The Washington Post.

From Zero Hedge “The truth as all those who buy gold after the devaluation learn, is that for gold to be a store of value and preserve purchasing power it has to be acquired before some catastrophic, devaluing event, which as yesterday’s Brexit showed, tends to be utterly unpredictable.”

Gold and silver are real money. REAL money is inflation proof. With the US dollar losing value at an alarming rate and more bailouts with much

Venezuela is Hungry

Venezuela is Hungry

The people are standing in line for hours just to buy whatever happens to be available that day. Inflation is so high, and wages so low, that it barely pays to go to work. All of their efforts must focus on finding food to feed their hungry children. It sounds just like the stories we heard out of communist Russia and Zimbabwe. There seem to be possible multiple causes of the current disaster, but the bottom line is that you can’t trust the government. Especially a socialist government.

Socialism at Work

It appears that the current trouble in Venezuela began at least a decade ago. It was decided that the environment needed protecting, and in 2007, Former President of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, announced that Venezuela was going to save the environment and stop global warming by investing in energy conservation efforts.

Hydroelectric power produces 74% of their power. By 2009, the country was experiencing electrical power cuts lasting up to six hours at a time. Drought and under-investment of infrastructure was blamed for the energy shortages.

In 2011, the Venezuelan government announced that the country was experiencing growing pains. They reported that poverty had been reduced and the economy was booming. The government was having trouble keeping up with electrical power demands because the rapid growth was causing increased demands for electricity. The problem grew, and in 2013 the new president, Nicolas Maduro, blamed blackouts on sabotage by his political opposition. The attorney general of Venezuela called on hungry people to “remain calm, not to believe rumors of an alleged food shortage. He announced that “hoarders” were to be arrested and imprisoned.

As events unfolded, there was no “alleged” food shortage but rather an actual food shortage.

In March 2015, President Obama “declared Venezuela a national security threat and ordered sanctions against seven officials from the oil-rich country in the worst bilateral diplomatic dispute since socialist President Nicolas Maduro took office in 2013.”

“Venezuelan officials past and present who violate the human rights of Venezuelan citizens and engage in acts of public corruption will not be welcome here, and we now have the tools to block their assets and their use of U.S. financial systems,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement. The United States is Venezuela’s top trading partner, and the OPEC member in 2014 remained the fourth-largest supplier of crude to the United States at an average of 733,000 barrels per day – despite a decade-long effort by Caracas to diversify its oil shipments to China and India.

Where is the major media? I don’t see many of them covering this story because it speaks ill of socialist governments. The starvation in Venezuela contradicts the narrative that the United States should elect Hillary Clinton as our socialist president.





Mining CEO Forecasts Triple Digit Silver

I found this article today over at SHTFPlan Top Mining CEO Forecasts Triple Digit Silver Within Two Years: “The Manipulation Is Coming To An End”

The article is worth a read. Keith Neumeyer, Chairman of mineral bank First Mining Finance and the CEO of First Majestic Silver,

“highlights the fact that people all over the world are fed up with politicians, central banks and financial institutions working together to further degrade our rights and pillage our wealth. The Brexit vote is the latest evidence of this, but so, too, is the rise of Donald Trump’s popularity in America.”

“The anti-establishment movement is pushing back and with it will come collapse of the status quo, panic and violence. Anytime throughout history that confidence in the system has been lost and chaos is the norm, precious metals become the only safe haven asset and currency of last resort.”

I advise that you trade a hefty portion of your worthless Federal Reserve Notes (FRN) for silver or gold before it’s too late. The Trump Dollar would be a great place to start!Trump Dollar, silver, gold & copper


The last few days I was attending  a coin convention in Orlando, Florida and did a couple of video shoots that I will post soon. Video shoots went well… the proof is in the pudding… or as they say on the floor of the editing booth…

Since I returned from the coin convention… I am swamped with a backlog that seems to be unending. I am now home and recuperating from my travels. The air-conditioning just quit working so it is HOT as h*ll in here as its 97 today. I hope you can stay cool where you are.





Privately Minted Coins Found To Be Legitimate Money

Many thanks to Peter Schiff for the magnificent story he posted today about a man named Josiah Sprinkle, who lived in eastern Kentucky in the early 1830s. The story, written by Samuel Bryan, was posted at Schiff Gold and titled Privately Minted Silver Coins Were Legitimate Money in the 1800s. Josiah had a silver mine and minted his own private money, made of pure silver. At that time, the U.S. government money was also minted of silver, but Josiah’s were worth slightly more than theirs were. The government didn’t appreciate the competition, and had Josiah arrested. He was found not guilty in court!

How did Josiah Sprinkle escape conviction and prison? Because his coins were REAL MONEY, being pure silver, and being of the correct weight that met the definition of a dollar. The U.S. government did not have a valueless fiat currency to defend, so they could not prove the charge. They couldn’t claim, in court, that Josiah’s coins were counterfeits, and not money. Money is money, no matter who minted it. Money is silver and gold.

Nowdays the Federal Reserve circulates fiat currency, NOT Real Money. The paper is not backed by silver or gold.

Schiff also briefly tells the story of the Yocum Dollar. You can read about the Yocum Dollar and the full story of Josiah Sprinkle at Schiff Gold and at PCGS. The NY Times has a PDF of their 1895 article about Mr. Sprinkle.


Hillary’s Lies, The Air Gap Rule, and Systematic Perfidy

I’m on the road again for the next several days, going to shoot a couple of videos. This traveling gets harder and harder to do every year, but I still love it. Reading the morning news, I found this timely piece to share.

James Wesley, Rawles, editor of the superb and always enlightening Survival Blog, and former U.S. Army Intelligence Officer, has written an excellent commentary on Hillary Clinton’s email crimes. I share it here in it’s entirety in case you missed it:

Hillary’s Lies, The Air Gap Rule, and Systematic Perfidy

By James Wesley Rawles | July 6, 2016

FBI Director James Comey flat out lied to the American people yesterday, when he described Hillary Clinton and the State Department’s staffers as “extremely careless” and declined to refer her case for prosecution. What they actually did was far more serious than “careless”. Without a doubt, they willfully, criminally, treasonously carried out deliberate steps to copy classified paragraphs to an unsecure private server, and then they lied about it and also tried to delete files and confound investigators to cover their tracks.

By not confirming this perfidy with a criminal referral, Mr. Comey just made himself an indirect party to their crimes. Let me explain why I know this with certainty:

First, all classified documents are kept on dedicated independent encrypted computer systems and networks that do not cross over into the unclassified world. These computers are all very carefully air gapped–meaning that they NEVER have a physical connection to computers on unclassified networks. Therefore, there were only three ways that those 2,100+ classified paragraphs (some of them TS Codeword!) could have ended up in unclassified e-mails:

  1. While reading one screen, someone laboriously keyed them in by hand, to appear on another screen. (This is unlikely, or human transcription errors would have been obvious.)
  2. Someone “bridged the air gap” with an Ethernet cable or other data cable. Also unlikely, but that is possible in a worst-case security breach.
  3. Someone copied classified files (or excerpts from them), using a memory stick or other removable memory media. (The most likely method used.)

Second, even if the Air Gap Rule violations could somehow be explained, then there is still the issue of the systematic removal of the classification markings on the documents. Not only does the top and bottom of each page carry a classification marking, but each individual paragraph contained within the document carries a classification prefix. These paragraph prefixes include:

(U) Which stands for Unclassified

(C) Which stands for Confidential

(S) Which stands for Secret

(NF) A secondary marking which stands for No Foreign (NOFORN) dissemination (So, for example, in might read: S/NF”)

(TS/Codeword) Which stands for Top Secret and the initials of a SCI compartment codeword.

Note: There are also other variations of these markings. And I can’t even mention any of those codewords or their initials because they themselves are considered classified!

The inescapable and inconvenient truth is that those top, bottom, and paragraph classification markings don’t disappear without someone taking the time and trouble to painstakingly remove them! Again, this could not have been any sort of carelessness.

If anyone else in government service (whether military or civilian) had done what Hillary perfidiously ordered her staff to repeatedly do, then if detected they’d be immediately arrested and within a few short months they’d face trial and probably be serving 10+ years of hard time in a Federal Pen. But apparently Hitlery Clinton is so witchy special that laws don’t apply to her–at least in the eyes of the politically-appointed FBI director.

As a former Intelligence officer, I am absolutely sickened and appalled to see Director Comey sell out the way that he did. Curse you, Mr. Comey! If J. Edgar Hoover were alive today, he would spit in your eye.- JWR

TSA Brutalizes & Terrorizes Young Woman

Simon Black, at Sovereign Man, knocked it out of the ballpark today with his blog post about Hannah Cohen, a 19-year old young woman in a wheelchair, who was brutalized, terrorized and arrested by the TSA. Her crime? She didn’t comprehend and obey fast enough.

“19-year old Hannah Cohen should have been partying.

“Living with multiple disabilities like paralysis, partial deafness, and blindness in one eye, Hannah also suffers from a brain tumor.

“And five days ago, she and her mother were traveling home via Memphis International Airport to celebrate the end of her cancer treatment with the rest of her family.

“That’s when Hannah found out how free she really is”… on HERE if you want to be outraged.

This has to stop. The government protects, defends and mollycoddles the terrorists and terrorizes the innocent citizens. Where was Hannah’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Where was the protection of the rights of the disabled?

I hope she sues, but that won’t be likely to stop TSA the next time they encounter a defenseless victim. What is it going to take to stop them?


Are You Celebrating Your Liberty Today?

Do you feel free? Are you enjoying your liberty?

Real Money

One of the few freedoms I see that we still have left to us, is the freedom to buy real money; i.e. gold and silver. Yes, this is another shameless plug for the Trump Dollar. Of course I want you to buy some gold and/or silver from me. Own some Free Speech that is Actually Worth Something.

The “2016 Trump Dollar” is a clear call for freedom of political speech and an expression of distrust of the entrenched political class. It was created to recognize Donald Trump’s heroic presidential candidacy and popularize it with collectors and sound-money supporters. It was designed by Bernard von NotHaus, the monetary architect of the Liberty Dollar. That’s me.


Tyler Durden, over at Zero Hedge, best expressed today, my sentiments about the current state of freedom in America.

What Is It We’re Celebrating Exactly?

“Moral law no longer governs. Only the law. And that can be anything. There are no limits whatsoever on what may be done to us; only that a law be enacted (and not even that). We are bound to obey, regardless. The king’s men could simply take our things, search our persons on whim. The colonists objected to such treatment and cited such treatment among the reasons for their decision to secede. Is it not a fact that the government’s men (and women) can simply take our things? Search us on whim? Have you traveled recently?” Read his post HERE.

Meanwhile, out in California, Governor Brown just signed six more gun ban laws, removing more freedoms that Californians thought they had. James Wesley Rawles over at Survival Blog, did an excellent job of informing us…Coping With California’s Six New Gun and Magazine Ban Laws.
