  • U.S. Standard Of Living Has Fallen More Than 50% [View instapost]
    Yes Teresa, I'm still around - and Seeking Alpha is STILL censoring everything I send them.

    So if you want to read my stuff you'll have to come to the original source - as Seeking Alpha (and their mainstream Masters) don't want you to see what I write...

  • Rebutting The Recovery [View instapost]
    Sadly, HA65MPH, Seeking Alpha doesn't WANT their readers to see any of my work - and so they won't (officially) PUBLISH anything I submit (same, old story).

    So this will likely just be a(nother) one-time appearance for me. Neither our site nor myself personally GAIN anything from simply "blogging" my work on THEIR site.

    All that happens is that they then STEAL traffic from our site (via Google searches) because searches get diverted to THIS post instead of the original article on our site.

    So it is Seeking Alpha's insistence on CENSORING all of my work that makes it impossible to continue to submit anything here.

    Those who would like to read what I write (uncensored) can come to our site:

  • The $15 TRILLION Money-Laundering Mystery [View instapost]
    Seeking Truth,

    After the "9/11" episode, the Patriot Act, and now "indefinite detention", NOTHING this government does could ever surprise me again.

    And like you, items which I MIGHT have brushed-off as mere "tin-foil hat" nonsense can no longer simply be dismissed offhand.

    The fact that no official REBUTTAL has ever emerged on this (since the original clip emerged) only adds to my suspicions here.

    Untrusting investor I've learned NOT to make any short-term calls in our Ponzi markets.

    With any/every SCAM, the scam ends when the sheep lose CONFIDENCE. It's always impossible to predict when such a dramatic change in perceptions will occur.

    What we CAN say is that the longer the delusions remain the more EXTREME the reaction will be once reality sets in. Thus forget about some trivial 20% haircut.

    What the banksters are AGAIN setting up our markets for is some 60-70% CRASH.

    The only alternative is to go straight into HYPERINFLATION mode with the money-printing - in which case there will be no (nominal) decrease in equity markets. BUT (with the underlying paper going to zero) we can/could see equity markets double (or triple or quadruple) - while in REAL DOLLARS investors are absorbing 50%/60%/70% losses.

    Thanks for the support!

    Maybe you could suggest to Seeking Alpha that they actually PUBLISH one of these - rather than HIDING them from their audience by leaving these posts on my Instablog!

  • Exploring Inflation Over the Past 10 Years Through Charts [View article]
    Rob, the only thing I would have added to this fine expose on lying-about-inflation would be to explicitly note what was visible on one of your (fancy) charts: is reporting more inflation in the U.S. economy SINCE 2008 (i.e. BEFORE the brief collapse in prices later that year) than the BLS is admitting to for the entire DECADE!

    This is a great indicator of the level of BLS fraud in yet one more area of their reporting. Indeed, clearly they had acquired years of expertise in lying about inflation before they commenced their next, great "project": totally fictionalizing all of the "statistics" they report on employment...

  • Silver Is Too Rich vs. Gold [View article]
    It's truly amazing to see supposedly responsible commentators publishing such nonsense.

    The current gold/silver price ratio is about 40:1. The LONG-TERM price ratio (i.e. over 5,000 years) is 15:1. Thus the author's claim is already absurd on its surface.

    When we factor in that over 90% of the world's silver has (literally) been "consumed" (industrially), this presents us with the additional parameter that there is LESS silver (in proportion to the amount of gold) than at any time in (at least) many centuries.

    Thus any PROPER gold/silver ratio (which reflects this new parameter) will have to be somewhere BELOW that long-term 15:1 ratio.

    Lastly, take a look at a 600-year chart for the price of silver (in real dollars), to see how "cheap" $35/oz really is...

  • Why Silver Is Grossly Undervalued and the Myth of the 'Primary Silver Mine' [View article]
    Trolling here too now, Colchure?

    Here's a dynamic which should even be simple enough for yourself: global stockpiles for silver are GONE, rather than existing at the traditional 17:1 ratio which has existed for most of the last 5,000 years.

    Yet despite the lack of SUPPLY, the price of silver (relative gold) is extremely LOW - less than HALF of the long-term (i.e. 5,000 year) price ratio.

    Meanwhile, as John Williams of Shadowstats has told us, using REAL numbers for inflation, the price of gold would have to rise to $7500/ounce - just to EQUAL the 1980-high.

    Milwaukeeguy, on that topic, here are two links to older commentaries which you would likely find of interest:

  • A bullish call on BofA (BAC) from Barron's, which thinks the stock could rise more than 40% in the next two years as the bank's credit portfolio improves and as CEO Brian Moynihan works to improve earnings. Potential investors may want to see what Monday brings before jumping in.  [View news story]
    Some of these shills have absolutely no shame. With BoA about to "flush" half of its mortgages down its own toilet, only a fool would buy into this fraud-factory...

  • The Future of Silver Mining [View article]
    Since you obviously didn't READ either piece, let me start with a short, simple clip:

    "Where could this market go? John Williams of is on record as saying that if real numbers were used for U.S. inflation since gold hit its previous, nominal high in 1980 that the price of gold would have to reach roughly $7,500/ounce – simply to equal that price in inflation-adjusted terms. With gold at that price, if silver merely equaled its long-term price ratio with gold that implies a silver price of $500/oz."

    Simply "equaling" the 1980 market implies a long-term price for silver of $500/ounce, and economic parameters for silver (in particular) are MANY TIMES more favorable today than they were in 1980.

    Krackondack, the "next phase" is obvious: silver confiscation...

    Beauanderos, in fact SA published the conclusion immediately BEFORE they published the first part - so you can read it now.

    There is SOME consolidation taking place in the sector, however, most of the LARGE-CAP companies simply have management teams who are clueless - the problem with spending too many years with BANKERS as your "best friends".

    Quite simply the large miners have been "asleep at the wheel", which is why ALL of the real gains in this sector are coming with the juniors (with the exception of a Silver Wheaton, whose biggest gains are behind it).

    Thus most of the "consolidation" of these older properties are being made by the SAME juniors who have already taken one or more of their properties to production - leaving the large caps in their dust.

    As for the second part of your question: nice try!

    The problem here is that we have no way of knowing what happens to OTHER metals prices. If they "freeze" while silver keeps rising then even at $50/oz you would have DOZENS of "new silver mines" all over the world - based only on reclassification.

    On the other hand, if other metals ALSO race higher at nearly the same rate, then that SAME threshold wouldn't be reached until silver was closer to $100/oz.

    On an individual basis, you can answer that question by YOURSELF by doing "due diligence" on these companies, SEEING what they are currently producing (in ounces/tonnages) and then playing around with different numbers.

    There are no "magic short-cuts" here...

    Gold-and-silver, while confiscation is certainly POSSIBLE regarding bullion which we HOLD personally, the issue is very simple.

    To get the bullion in one's "bullion-account" or "bullion-ETF" our government(s) must click their mouse. And (in the case of the U.S) it can confiscate the "bullion" of MILLIONS of holders with one click.

    To get the bullion in one's own possession, the government must bust down doors, one-by-one. And if MOST of the sheep place their bullion where it can be scooped-up with ONE mouse-click, it's MUCH less likely that governments will come after your or my bullion.

    In addition, one of the reasons we BALANCE our content/coverage between bullion AND miners is because that reduces our "confiscation risk" still further.

    Simply, you know NOTHING about this market.

    Everything you have said is incorrect.
