We Are on a Gold Standard Even if You Don't Know it


If you believe that gold no longer plays a role, think again. In effect, if you know what to look for, the world is on a gold standard now.

In 1971 the US ‘closed the gold window’ starting an era of global fiat money reference pricing that has been unprecedented in history. Never has the world operated on the basis of no country having a currency tied to something with intrinsic value like Gold. The ‘petro-dollar’ - a US dollar exchange rate based on the deal struck between Saudi Arabia and America - for the US to buy their oil and for the Saudis to buy US dollars and bonds in return - started a period of oil companies (with the military machinery in their pocket) bullying the world into buying US dollars or getting cut off from oil and dollar supplies led to our current political situation with the US now involved in multiple wars in various oil dependent economies and their satellites - and this lulled many into believing that Gold no longer played a role, but recent events prove these assumptions wrong.

Leading up the news that the Federal Reserve would not ‘taper’ their bond buying (QE) program we saw a precipitous drop in the price of Gold. Since I knew (like others including Peter Schiff, Bill Fleckenstein, Michael Pento and even James Rickards who stated as much on “Keiser Report”) that the Fed cannot ‘taper’ at any point going forward without throwing their entire Ponzi scheme into the ditch (causing every major bank in the world to instantly collapse) it was interesting to see the price of Gold trade down - unless you know the Fed, working alongside bankers on Wall St. and the City of London - are actively managing the price of Gold (along with stocks, bonds and currencies). Knowing that the Fed (who is implicated in every recent major market rigging scandal covering Forex, energy markets and credit default swaps) knew that it would make an announcement that would cause a buying panic in Gold (that they were going to debase the currency some more) - it had to go into the market and drive the price of Gold down ahead of the announcement or risk seeing Gold pop to new all-time highs of $2,000 or more.

I commented a few weeks ago that to understand the Fed you have to understand that it, along with JP Morgan and other TBTF banks, are one giant hedge fund. And this is a huge negative for supporters of free markets who believe prices should be determined by the market - not the Fed. Surprisingly, a few days later Warren Buffett made the same observation. He said the ‘Fed is the most successful hedge fund in history.’ For Warren this is true. He is on the receiving end of the biggest transfer of wealth in history from workers and savers to borrowers and speculators. But for those not on the Fed’s list of recipients of hundreds of billions worth of interest free loans that never have to be paid back the fact that the Fed is a giant hedge fund is devastating. It’s no coincidence that the day after the ‘no tapering’ of ‘food stamps for bankers’ aka QE was announced the government announced that food stamps for the non-recipients of the Fed’s free money were told that they can expect a ‘taper’ in the form of a cutback.

The huge price drop in Gold before the taper announcement is ‘smoking gun’ proof the Fed does exactly what Warren Buffett says they do: operate like an enormous hedge fund; making free loans to ‘friends,’ manipulating markets with impunity, disrupting price discovery with high powered algo trading fraud and pressuring governments to submit to various extortion schemes like TARP (created by Goldman Sachs alum and Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson.

In effect, if you know what to look for, the world is on a gold standard now. The price of gold is telling you that the Fed Ponzi is running at full tilt and that the ravages of having such a destructive mechanism at the heart of the economy are unraveling. Because even with all that effort, the trend of the price of Gold is still higher and at some point the ability to keep it down will fail and then; as Warren Buffett also said; ‘You can see who’s not wearing a bathing suit when the tide goes out.’

CFTC Closes JP Morgan Silver Manipulation Case

Well, that didn’t take long. After Andrew Maguire went public last Friday that the CFTC is holding evidence that JP Morgan manipulated the gold and silver markets, moments ago the CFTC announced it is closing its 5 year investigation into silver market manipulation, and that after 5 years of investigation the CFTC has found:

“Based upon the law and evidence as they exist at this time, there is not a viable basis to bring an enforcement action with respect to any firm or its employees related to our investigation of silver markets.”
Something tells us Mr. Chilton won’t be releasing any contrary statements by the end of September as promised either.

Let the manipulation continue indefinitely until the last ounce of physical gold and silver are removed from COMEX vaults!

Is JP Morgan Going Long Gold?


While the Federal Reserve continues flooding the financial system with newly printed dollars and discussion of war between the U.S. and Syria continues, the only investments that have never gone to zero and have proven throughout history to preserve wealth through times of economic and political turmoil ironically continue to fall! In this exclusive interview, the Gold Antitrust Action Committee's chairman, Bill Murphy, explains why the prices of precious metals are falling and questions if JPMorgan Chase & Co. has really been investing in gold amid the most devastating and blatant gold price suppression scheme he has ever witnessed.

Turd Ferguson and Max Keiser - America's Curse


Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss America's curse: dollar printing or JP Morgan? They also examine the truth about the fact that despite a mere $4 extra to manufacture a smartphone in America rather than in China, production will remain overseas. In the second half, Max travels upriver to interview Turd Ferguson of TFMetalsReport.com outside JP Morgan's Park Avenue headquarters. Turd reports that JPMorgan has 'cornered' the Comex gold market and also comments on the bank's silver short and their 'rogue' commodities desk, reportedly being investigated by the FBI for obstruction of justice.

They Don't Have the Physical Gold

The capping strategy is in place. There is no evidence as of yet that the Fed and the BIS, who I am certain are behind all of this, have the capability, even if they wanted to, to push things much lower because they don’t have the physical gold that would be necessary to be delivered.

But they do have the ability in markets, that still aren't quite as liquid as they are normally, to push prices around a bit and create some downside volatility....

First Signs of Hyperinflation are Here

The first signs of hyperinflation have arrived.

There was one hugely notable development in the gold and silver markets last week. Normally anytime, Ben Bernanke whispered even a hint or suggestion of QE tapering, the gold and silver markets would crash on such an announcement. However, this time, gold price behavior reacted intelligently to the insanity of Central Banking monetary policy and it ignored the propaganda of Central Bankers and continued to rise. Why is this development so significant?It is massively significant because it signals a further breakdown of confidence in the monetary system. Every other instance that Chairman Bernanke even hinted about tapering QE, it gave the Federal Reserve and their puppet bullion banks an opportunity to suppress the price of gold that they successfully relished. This time around, I don’t believe that their propaganda was any less effective than all the prior times Bernanke falsely warned about QE tapering. So what has changed? People no longer care what Bernanke and other bankers say about QE because their confidence in fiat currencies, as illustrated by the largest single day drop of the Indian rupee last week, is starting to finally, and justifiably crack. And the first sign of a loss of confidence in fiat currencies and a vote for the solid valuation of gold (and silver) money is the first sign of potential hyperinflation ahead.

John Embry - Massive Surge in the Price of Gold

“Gold is going materially higher over the next 12 months, and the price will most likely explode higher in the next 5 months. I think the West, including the BIS, is running out of ammunition (physical gold) to cap the market, and the fact that they continue to do this just reveals how truly desperate the situation has become for the West. 
All of this frenzied activity on the part of the West is clearly an indication to me that there are enormous problems in the system. Western central planners know that a massive surge in the price of gold would reveal the true nature of the rot that is taking place in the financial system. So they are now clearly fighting a losing battle in the gold market, and this will be seen as just another delaying action over time as they ultimately retreat in defeat.”
