They are Coming for Your Savings!

October 31, 2013

Well today being Halloween, since it is raining, and not too many kids are stopping by, I decided to share an article I came across today. It will take you back into history, on why Governments, World Leaders and so many others; have always understood the greed factor, for all the wrong reasons.

The greed factor stems back to the evolution of mankind. The motivational factors have not changed at all, when you need a quick fix, what is the fastest and easy's way to achieve that goal. You become a criminal, well achieving your financial obligation at someone else's price.

This article is written by John Rubino, via the Dollar Collapse Blog

Another of history’s many lessons is that governments under pressure become thieves. And today’s governments are under a lot of pressure.

Before we look at the coming wave of asset confiscations, let’s stroll through some notable episodes of the past, just to make the point that government theft of private wealth is actually pretty common.

Ancient Rome had a rule called “prescription” that allowed the government to execute and then confiscate the assets of anyone found guilty of “crimes against the state.” After the death of Julius Caesar in 44 BC, three men, Mark Anthony, Lepidus, and Caesar’s adopted son Octavian, formed a group they called the Second Triumvirate and divided the Empire between them. 

But two rivals, Brutus, and Cassius, formed an army with which they planned to take the Empire for themselves. The Triumvirate needed money to fund an army of its own and decided the best way to raise it was by kicking the prescription process into overdrive. They drew up a list of several hundred wealthy Romans, accused them of crimes, executed them and took their property.

Peter Schiff: The Collapse Of The Dollar Is Unavoidable

October 22, 2013

This article was written by Taki Tsanklanos founder of GoldSilverWorld in a Q&A with Peter Schiff, CEO and Chief Global Strategist of Euro Pacific Capital, explained why the mother of all collapses is still in front of us and shared his top tips on how to protect financially.

Peter Schiff has an outspoken libertarian view on the world and economics. It is no coincidence he will be one of the keynote speakers at the first Liberty Forum Conference 2013 on December 4 to 8. his libertarian view was mainly influenced by his father, more so than any of the books he has read. From a young age, he discussed with his father topics related to government, economics, the constitution, and history of the U.S. His personal view and the free markets oriented perspective were a perfect fit even if these ideas were in contrast with the majority of economic experts and governments. According to Peter Schiff “many people just buy the establishment; they accept a lot of nonsense.”

What did Richard Nixon, have to do with the value of Gold?

October 21, 2013

We all know what Richard Nixon was famous for, the Watergate Scandal, but very few understand how he created the greatest pyramid scheme of all time. He had the ability to manipulate the U.S dollar to become the fiat currency of the world.

The U.S. dollar became the most valued currency, which central banks believed in, as an actual value for its face value. The only currency that could be back up by gold, and why it worked for such a long time. The American dollar was the international currency, real money, with real buying power backed by gold.

August 15, 1971, President Richard Nixon ended the Bretton Woods International Monetary System, which involved fixed exchange rates with the U.S dollar as the world currency.

Being involved with the international market only money I could use was the American dollar, not one nation would accept any other currency when l bought any goods from the oversea market. I did the same thing. Bank of America was my primary source for Converting Canadian Dollars to U.S dollars to pay for my goods.

America had the ability to create a system that was filled with confidence, with central banks where they could buy American dollars instead of gold as storage for future wealth. The dollar at the time did not matter; it had the value and the backing of gold.

At the time, America could borrow money at literately no cost, with zero interest being paid back to the Loaner. The world handed Uncle Sam a credit card with endless possibilities with their borrowing abilities with zero interest in most cases.

The key factor on why this scheme worked was that the U.S dollar could be converted at any time for gold at current value. The dollar had the same power as what gold had, except, money could be printed, and gold could not be reproduced. Making the American buck a gold mine against all currency.

What are your options when investing with gold?

October 18, 2013

The most logical financial reason is Governments, cannot reproduce gold as they can, with the fiat currency, paper money.  It's why gold, will provide financial benefits, in our retirements future investments.

Gold and many other investments have had a ridicules roller coaster ride recently. Investing is always going to be a calculated risked, without a doubt. If you think differently, watch your investments vanish.

Difficult to understand why it has reacted the way it has to all the news from Congress. Is it being used as a cover up, to resolve all the other financial fiscals? Shutdowns, the debt ceiling, unemployment, foreclosures and cities in America declaring bankruptcy.

Gold will always have a demand, for the simple reason; it has a value that will be hard to compete. China has taken the role to becoming the worlds’ most successful currency and overtakes the American dollar as the most trusted fiat currency.

No one can predict how much gold China has in their back pocket. They have played a brilliant game of poker. They have the hand of a lifetime. They have the control of this asset, not just yet, but they are on their way.

They will be able to monitor the fiat currency, backed by their holdings, “with this asset, gold.” The question is how much gold is actually in Fort Knox? We all have heard rumors, so no need to bring it up. There is no gold locked up; it is all on loan, what they call "loan gold" more than one person buys the same bar of gold. How many own it, another myth.

Why l decided to take some time off, from writing on this topic. Had to understand the trends, effects, and why it was reacting the way it was. Finally seen a trend, on why it reacted the way it was! The newest trend that was introduced a long time ago has the same effect. Propaganda created by the media. Is what controls all commodities, options, stocks and your assets?

All you have to do is drive a vehicle to see the up’s and downs, of how OPEC, controls how far you drive. Gas prices are an absolute factor with hyperinflation! Transportation kicks in, so everything that is delivered is increased due to fuel prices.

Food is the biggest factor, with hyperinflation we all need to eat and feed our loved ones. You see it at your local grocery store, meat, vegetables, bread; daily items we use have all, increased in price. It's only the tip of the iceberg. Could share numbers, but who cares? They are only going up in price, so not going to make a difference.

On this blog, there are many logical ways you can protect yourself and play your hand as efficiently as you can, with the odds being perceptive. Still may not work out well, after all; investing will always be a gamble. Only 2 percent of the world’s population invests in gold.

Some of you who read this article may feel; the same way l did. Here is an article that can provide solutions on how to protect your future savings or how to save for your retirement.  

You can do it, in this time frame, or you can do it, in this period.
 All you have to do is pick one!

The End of America. There Will Be No Economic Recovery, Because!

September 30, 2013

There is so much riding this evening, with the American way of conducting business, on a global platform! President Obama is under a server amount of pressure. Making it 17 years, since the last occurring’s, at this magnetite that took place.

How can you overcome issues, which have a need, and demand survival? America needs to increase borrowing to avoid defaulting on their debt, beyond September 30, 2013. This with a fiat currency; just is not going to look, overly impressive.

Could Congress be heading towards a government shutdown?  With the Republican leaders in American House of Representatives refusal to President Barack Obama’s demand for additional printed money to run the government beyond the request date of September 30, 2013, so it may perhaps avoid default.

It will play, with many financial factors, according to Central Banking systems of rating and distribution of funds. Could China have a trump card? What if they called their loan, what would America do? What if they want their payment in gold, as the asset, avoiding, the fiat currency?

Whenever an investment of gold is made, it is a vote against central banks credibility with savers still further. It can also be considered a measurement of mismanaging of money by central banks.

Even if the American Government, in a last minute agreement that could avoid a shut-down, financial markets will still face the effects of a $16.8 trillion debt ceiling by the middle of October. It could cause major concerns for the next political stand-off.

Many analysts indicate with a soft dollar, with U.S. bond yields improving, which would support the gold prices. For investors who desire a safe investment during this time of uncertainty, should consider investing in gold according to the experts. As the dollar continues to face daily challenges, this will certainly have an impact on the direction of gold as a future provider of your retirement pension plan.
