Jim Rickards – Gold is Money

Jim Rickards must be a very nice man because every time he is interviewed on this channel, the brilliant hosts (said sarcastically) continually mock him by making light of his thoughts on gold as money. Jim Rickards presents yet another clear and concise message as to why gold is money and the gold price should be around $7,000/oz in a few years due to the fiat money printing from the US & EU.

Rickards also discusses the importance of the SDRs issued by the IMF and the increasing importance in the rise of Germany’s powers. Germany is in the process of creating the Fourth Reich in financial terms and Rickards is ahead of the game (as usual) by understanding the nature of governments and the barbarous relic know as gold.

Great interview, just ignore the condescending attitude of those asking questions.

Jim Rickards & the Euro Gold Standard

Jim Rickards discusses the economic connection between Italy and France. Rickards goes on to say that he is bullish on the Euro only because they have the second largest amount of gold behind the U.S. Jim Rickards the amount of outstanding debt is unable to be repaid and this is similar to 1919. Rickards holds his ground and does a nice job of using history as a reference on how the same mistakes will be made once again. Much to the hosts dismay and the haters out there, the barbaric relic does matter and is the truest currency.

Jim Rickards on Gold, S&P Downgrade

Jim Rickards discusses gold and the importance of the barbaric relic in geopolitical terms. As Rickards is trying establish his thesis on gold and the dictatorial powers of the USA, the hosts and guest promptly do their best to downplay the importance of gold and Rickards’ analysis. Gold hit $1700 this morning and Rickards calls the United States a gold superpower and the Saudi Arabia of gold. He also mentions how the US could simply confiscate gold not only of its citizens, but that of other nations’ gold that is stored in the USA. Jim Rickards has some interesting points of view and always provides great insight and analysis, even if he is ridiculed by those who proudly claim they don’t understand gold, like those on this interview.

Food Stamps as Economic Stimulus?

Tom Vilsack is the Secretary of Agriculture and is in charge of the food stamp program (which now goes by the code word: SNAP) The current economic crisis and depression has led to 1 out of every 7 Americans to be on food stamps for a total of 46 million people. Leave it to the Obama administration to call this an economic stimulus and good for the economy.

According to Tom Vilsack, he states that for every $1 of food stamps, it generates $1.84 in economic activity and is the best way to inject stimulus into the economy. This is insane and is yet another reason that proves Obama has clue on the economy. According to this logic, we should spend about $10 Trillion in food stamps which would boost the economy and help to eliminate our debt. Stupid Keynesians….

Ron Paul & The Federal Reserve: End the Fed

Ron Paul had a powerful interview regarding his thoughts on the press conference of Ben Bernanke & the Federal Reserve. Ron Paul is considered to be a probable candidate for President in 2012 and he pulls no punches in this clip.

Ron Paul says several times that not only do we need transparency from the Federal Reserve, but it needs to end completely. He makes his case in a clear an concise manner regarding Helicopter Ben monetizing the debt and devaluing the dollar in order to ease the pain of the Federal debt in real terms. Ron Paul also discusses gold as the only real currency and how the Fed and fiat currency allows the Gov’t to spend recklessly and intervene in wars around the world.

I sincerely believe this is the time for Ron Paul and his Libertarian message. Take a listen and share with your friends. Ron Paul 2012!

Marc Faber on Gold, Inflation, & the Federal Reserve

New Wave Slave videoMarc Faber appeared on CNBC and was his usual self, speaking the truth in such a clear and concise way that only Ben Bernanke could not understand. Marc Faber was speaking with Joe Kernan and said that due to money printing by the Federal Reserve, gold looks cheap compared to the 1999 price of $250/oz. He also said the markets are down 80% compared to gold/silver.

Faber also touched on the struggle of class warfare between the rich and poor and said that since 50% of Americans don’t pay taxes, the rich are inflating the currency and investing offshore while the average investor can not. He was then called (nicely) a conspiracy theorist…

Marc Faber said to buy gold, silver, fine art, and basically anything that can not be mass produced. While he didn’t say hyperinflation, it sure does look more like it everyday. Let the economic collapse begin… This is a great interview and Faber didn’t even appear to be drunk. Watch and pass it along. This is classic Marc Faber.

Jim Rickards: Just Like the 1930′s…

Jim Rickards was in his usual top form in an enlightening interview on CNBC. He was actually allowed to speak without being interrupted (at least not much) and he delivered more real content in 7 minutes than is usually on air all day long.

Jim Rickards compared the current economic climate to that of the 1930′s and he briefly mentioned the Weimar republic and how their stock market had an initial strong rally due to the money printing. Beck Quick showed her economic history by saying: “It did???” Rickards also said “we no longer have markets, we have theater” referring to the Fed and Central banks around the world.

Very good interview and I would strongly recommend to watch and pass it along to friends.

Breaking the Chains that Bind,


Obama Takeover of Emergency Alert System

This is an absolutely shocking video. It is from well known conspiracy expert Alex Jones, and it is very well documented. It basically explains how the Government and Obama administration plans to takeover the airwaves through the Emergency Alert System also known as (EAS). The Government is hard-wired into the stations so they can interrupt and takeover the airwaves so they can get “important” messages to the people.

Think about it, at any time the President chooses, he can takeover the airwaves and send any message he chooses. This is very much like 1984 and is down right scary. It is an instant propaganda machine that you can not get away from. The Government is also planning to takeover X-Box machines and wireless internet networks so that no one will be able to not see the propaganda, err.. I mean “important message”.

Please watch this video and pass it on to those you care about. It is extremely important that people become aware of what is happening. By the way, this is not only the Obama administration. This has been going on for years and show the continuity of the plans to dominate the people. This is bigger than any single individual. WATCH AND PASS THIS LINK TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

Here is the intro from the video: Even the Washington Post describes it like something out of Orwell’s 1984. The FCC has approved a presidential alert system. Obama may soon appear on your television or call your cell phone to warn you about the next specious al-Qaeda underwear bombing event.

Commissioners voted last week to require television and radio stations, cable systems and satellite TV providers to participate in a test that would have them receive and transmit a live code that includes an alert message issued by the president. No date has been set for the test, according to the Post.

Once again, the government has imposed an unreasonable and absurd mandate on business and the American people.

“The Federal Communications Commission today took action to help pave the way for the first-ever Presidential alert to be aired across the United States on the Nation’s Emergency Alert System (EAS),” the FCC announced on February 3 in a press release. “The national test will help determine the reliability of the EAS system and its effectiveness in notifying the public of emergencies and potential danger nationwide and regionally.”

As Next Generation EAS systems become operational over the next few years, they will complement other public alert and warning systems now being developed, including FEMA’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) and the Commercial Mobile Alert System that will enable consumers to receive alerts through a variety of multi-media platforms on their smart-phones, blackberries and other mobile broadband devices.

Ron Paul Slams Ben Bernanke

Ron Paul slams Ben Bernanke in an interview with Larry Kudlow on CNBC. Ron Paul is the leader of the House Financial Services Sub-Committee and he was having his first hearing on Wed. Feb. 10.

Anyone that is familiar with Ron Paul, knows that he is a straight shooter and holds nothing back, while at the same time, is professional and polite. The slams against Bernanke and the Federal Reserve are almost understated due to his calm demeanor.

Ron Paul Highlights:
-Federal Reserve policy is a failure.
-Possible global run on the dollar which could bring down the American empire similar to Russia.
-The Fed is delusional
-Competing currency system and ability to “opt out” of current system

Can you believe that a member of Congress actually said that we should have competing currencies against the almighty dollar? I think it is great and his message is being heard on an ever growing platform. This is definitely a must watch!

Jim Rogers and Global Inflation

New Wave Slave videoJim Rogers, in his latest interview, cuts right to the chase: “I don’t own many equities, because I don’t know what is going to happen in the world economy. I expect more currency turmoil, more social unrest, more governments collapsing. So I am investing in currencies and commodities rather than stocks.” Pretty much like everyone else, as we have been suggesting for quite a while. Rogers snaps at the trademark CNBC question of what he would be investing in: “I have been explaining to everybody on CNBC for a year and half or two now that food prices are going to go through the roof, they’re going to explode. We have serious shortage of everything developing, including shortages of farmers… The average age of farmers in one major agricultural state is 58 years old. In 10 years it will be 68 years old. In parts of Japan they have no farmers… It takes 7 years for a coffee tree to mature. Orange trees, palm trees: you don’t just suddenly snap your fingers and suddenly get some more palm oil. All of this takes time.” So all those who believe that the surge in people rushing to fill the ag arbitrage holes will produce immediate results, may need to wait 3-7 years, dependant on access to manure.

On whether this is not a demand-led inflation in commodity prices:

Whenever governments have printed money throughout history, people put their money in real assets, whether it’s rice or silver or natural gas. People protect themselves, they don’t just say “give me some more paper money.” And if you say it’s not demand: go to India, go to China, see how people are changing their lives and using more.” As for supply: “Commodities are based on supply and demand. You can have demand go down, but if supply goes down more you are going to have a bull market.”

Not surprisingly, Rogers see oil at $150, and the exchange between Rogers and some CNBC guy discussing the role of speculators (it is all the evil speculators’ fault, never the Chairsaint) is worth watching the clip alone.

Rogers’ response to CNBC’s desperate attempt to get him to list a stock or two for the lemmings to buy into, the response is priceless: “Commodities have outperformed stock by 10 times over the last 10-12 years. Why aren’t you doing only commodities. It’s outperformed stocks by 1,000%. To me it’s pretty simple, you should change the name to CommoditiesNBC.”

And, finally, his response to what his stock exposure is is not what CNBC wanted to hear. “I am short emerging markets ETFs, short Nasdaq ETFs.”

Brilliant as always. (from the fine folks at ZeroHedge)
