MONEY: Bloomberg Intelligence Projects $50 Silver in 2021 | SchiffGold

DECEMBER 23, 2020  BY SCHIFFGOLD   0   0 Saxo Bank recently projected silver will soar to $50 an ounce in 2021, powered by loose monetary policy along with the push for “green energy.” Bloomberg Intelligence is now making a similar call, saying silver will be “the primary metal” benefiting from electrification and quantitative easing in 2021. Gold set a new record earlier this year and briefly traded above $2,000 an ounce. In a recent report, Bloomberg Intelligence senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone predicted silver will follow gold toward a record high of its own.

Clearly higher metal prices are predicting inflation from all the FED’s action to stimulate the economy.

The result will be a harder life for the “middle class” if there is any such left.

MONEY: Virginia repeals sales taxes on money

Now in Effect: Virginia Law Takes First Step to Support Sound Money

*** begin quote ***

RICHMOND, Va. (Jan. 7, 2018) –  On Jan. 1, a Virginia law that repeals sales taxes from some purchases of gold and silver went into effect. It represents an important first step toward encouraging its regular use as currency and breaking the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.

A bipartisan coalition of delegates and senators sponsored House Bill 1668 (HB1668) and Senate Bill 934 (SB934). The legislation exempts gold, silver, and platinum bullion or legal tender coins whose sales price exceeds $1,000 from state sales tax. Each piece of gold, silver, or platinum or legal tender coin need not exceed $1,000, provided that the sales price of one entire transaction of such pieces exceeds $1,000. With gold over $1,000 an ounce, a single bullion coin will exceed this threshold.

Under the new law, the exemption will remain in place until June 30, 2022.

This seems to be the first step to “killing” the Fed.

It’s a backdoor way but who cares how we can do it. Just that we do!

MONEY: THOSE SAME THREE SILVER DIMES

Gas Prices Near 6-Year Highs, No Inflation? Who SaysThursday
July 03, 2014 12:59

*** begin quote ***

While official government statistics show U.S. inflation at still low levels, anyone who buys gas, food or health insurance can attest to the fact that inflation exists in our everyday lives. GasBuddy has predicted that U.S. consumers will see the most expensive July 4th since 2008 at the gas pump.

Despite the dramatic increase in U.S. oil production in recent years, GasBuddy estimates that Americans are likely to pay about $1.435 billion per day for gasoline during the holiday week, about $50 million more each day, or $350 million more per week than last year.

*** end quote ***

Any wonder why the “stock market” is going up while the “standard of living” is going down like the Titanic!

The value of the Federal Reserve Note!

THREE silver dimes from 1964, when I started buying gas, would buy ONE GALLON of gas. At $21.15 per silver ounce, those SAME THREE SILVER DIMES are worth $5.70. Far more than a gallon of gas. (Never mind that today’s gas is better, cleaner, and healthier.)

So what’s changed?

The value of money has been inflated away by the Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats for the benefit of the Crony Capitalists and the Banking Cartel.

When do The Sheeple wake up?

26 Reasons Why I Will Never Support Bitcoin

20. Then there is that anti government aspect of it.  Really? It seems the Anglo American bankers love it, including Ben Bernanke and JP Morgan.  It is right up their alley with something for nothing.  They may crack down on Bitcoin only to launch their own brand.  Look at the Lotto.  They went after the mob for running numbers, but then made it legal for them to profit off of.  They went after Charles Ponzi and then created their own Ponzi Scheme with Social Security.  I am telling you Bitcoin or something just like Bitcoin will be used to sell to the people after the dollar collapse, a new electronic worthless currency.  Who knows maybe we will get bonus points for watching TV and using it?  They already have millions hooked on EBT cards, get the corporations involved and the government muscle and you could see the final realization of a digital currency where they can cut you off if you get out of line.  How many stories do we already hear about bank bailins and IRS and NSA messing with people’s bank accounts.  Having real wealth outside of the system is the only antidote for that.

*** end quote ***

It’s the “intrinsic value” argument that hits me hardest.

In POW camps of WW2, cigarettes were “money”.

Gold and silver have the advantage of “intrinsic value”. Junk silver, (i.e., pre-1964 US coins), will be the money of TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It)!

The survivalist community plans to use ammo as money. As well as commodities, like liquor, can be barter fodder. 

Remember barter will precede “money”.

So, save wealth in forms that are not paper!

MONEY: Serious diversification

IT IS TIME: Move Your Money Out of the US Banking System
By Robert Wenzel
Economic Policy Journal
October 19, 2013

*** begin quote ***

It is time for serious diversification. Depending upon the size of your assets, there are different things that should be done. But almost everyone should have some cash and gold coins stored outside the banking system. Those with significant assets should begin international diversification now, while it is still possible. I don’t consider any country completely safe from the clutches of the US government so international diversification, among many countries, is also called for: Switzerland and Hong Kong for starters, but also other countries that are not known as tax havens, the USG has their claws into these countries, be creative.

*** end quote ***

Time to store: water, beans, bullets, and bandaids … … not necessarily in that order.

Followed by bullion — nickels, silver, and gold.

Note: Not paper!

POLITICAL: the Rosa Parks of alternative money

http://dailyreckoning.com/the-domestic-terrorist-you-can-call-a-hero/

Daily Reckoning
The “Domestic Terrorist” You Can Call a Hero
Jeffrey Tucker
Posted Sep 10, 2013.

*** begin quote ***

I dreamed I saw Bernard von NotHaus, alive as you or me.

Said I, “But Bernard, you’ve been jailed two years.”

“I never was,” said he.

Bernard has been the called the Rosa Parks of the alternative money movement. More than 10 years ago, he had this idea that he would make his own money — not the fake stuff we are used to, but the real stuff made of actual silver. He called his currency the Liberty Dollar (and why not, since there is no trademark on the word dollar?).

The feds raided him in in 2006. In 2007, the government outright stole 2 tons of coins from him, many of them featuring an image of Ron Paul, plus 500 silver coins and 50 gold coins. They threw him in jail and dragged his name through the mud many times.

He was later convicted of making counterfeit coins — an ironic conviction given that he was making silver coins to compete with official coins made out of scrap metal. That conviction was in March 2011, fully 2½ years ago. The government labeled him a “domestic terrorist.” Yet — and this is what amazed me — he still hasn’t been sentenced. He walks around as free as you or me.

*** end quote ***

It’s all about keeping the Sheeple sleeping.

I bought Liberty Dollars.

As a hedge.

The two silver discs are a little tarnished, but retain their value.

I forget what I paid for them but they have “held” their value.

The only mistake Bernard made was to put the word “dollar” on them. 

(Even though it’s not a restricted term.)

He should have just stuck to the weight.

But they are no more “counterfeit” than they are “worthless”.

Argh!

Gold and Silver Investors Greatest Secret Weapon

*** begin quote ***

As the FED turns up the heat in the central bank frying pan, the frogs (public) don’t realize they are being cooked to death by inflation. I am quite amazed how loud the sizzling sound has become, but for some odd reason hardly anyone notices it.

Unfortunately, we are well past the point of no return. It’s only a matter of time now before the whole “Financial Cliff” falls off the mountain side. Until then, gold and silver investors will have to put up with some of the worst analysis ever to come out of government and MSM.

*** end quote ***

Another indication that “someone” is cooking the books.

In a free market, commodities don’t diverge from glacial trends.

Of course, as a tin foil hat, I suspect manipulation.

The FED can print “dollars”, but they can’t print gold, silver, oil, land, food, water, bandaids, or bullets.

This is all a fraud being pulled on the Sheeple and Clovers.

GOLDBUG: The true price of gold and silver

http://usawatchdog.com/were-a-long-way-from-the-1970s/

We’re a Long Way from the 1970’s
12 JUNE 2013 
By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Updated)

*** begin quote ***

In the 1970’s, we had reporters investigating the White House. Today, we have the White House investigating reporters for doing their jobs. What Nixon did in the Watergate break-in is child’s play compared to the Obama Administration’s use of the IRS to target hundreds of groups considered political enemies. Let’s not forget the data collection on millions of Americans by the NSA and the brave souls that lost their lives in Benghazi. Revelations from multiple scandals seem to keep coming. This is, at the very least, a reflection of bad management of USA Inc. and not good for the U.S. dollar.

So, is the gold rush over? Not if you ask China, India, Russia and multiple hedge funds. Can precious metals prices still be suppressed and pushed lower? Yes, but only until the markets cannot or will not deliver physical metal. When that happens, there will be no more selling what you don’t have. It you want to sell 50,000 ounces of gold, you’ll have to produce it. The markets will be “cash only.” Then and only then will you get the true price of gold and silver.

We are a long way from the 1970′s. What is happening now has never happened in all of recorded history. No country has ever been more indebted than the U.S. Money printing has never been a coordinated global event. The risk to a black swan event such as nuclear war has never been greater in human history. So, when will the gold rush be over? The short answer: when there’s world peace and there is trust and integrity in the financial system.

*** end quote ***

It’s interesting when you thing of the giant Ponzi scheme that the dollar represents.

Once upon a time, a “dollar” was:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_dollar

*** begin quote ***

The U.S. dollar was created by the Constitution and defined by the Coinage Act of 1792. It specified a “dollar” to be based in the Spanish milled dollar and of 371 grains and 4 sixteenths part of a grain of pure or 416 grains (27.0 g) of standard silver and an “eagle” to be 247 and 4 eighths of a grain or 270 grains (17 g) of gold (again depending on purity).[36] The choice of the value 371 grains arose from Alexander Hamilton’s decision to base the new American unit on the average weight of a selection of worn Spanish dollars. Hamilton got the treasury to weigh a sample of Spanish dollars and the average weight came out to be 371 grains. A new Spanish dollar was usually about 377 grains in weight, and so the new U.S. dollar was at a slight discount in relation to the Spanish dollar.

*** end quote ***

What is it worth now?

Argh!

Is the answer “not much”?

And shrinking every minute.

Riding Into the Sunset or a Brick Wall?

*** begin quote ***

If everyone starts to carry rolls of cash everywhere, it’s not a big leap to carry coins. A silver coin the size of a dime is currently worth about $3.50. Two could buy you lunch.

*** end quote ***

As someone, who remembers 29 cent per gallon gas — with a glass, trading stamps, and a guy to wipe the window, it’s not a far stretch to imagine a country using gold and silver coins as money.

Paper should be bank warehouse receipts. No fractional reserve banking should be permitted.

We shouldn’t let the elite effete political class define money. Money should be a weight of something. The free market will assign it a value.

In the debate Ron Paul gave a classic line about “in the Sixties, three silver dimes would buy a gallon of gas and those same three silver dimes would buy more gas now”. Still true. Even in California.

Now if you are reading this, just ask yourself: “What’s changed?”

Three silver dimes = gallon of gas in 1960’s = more than a gallon of gas in 2012.

Yet, gas is now over $3 per gallon. 5 in California.

What’s changed?

Could it be that the value of the dollar has changed? Not the value of silver or gasoline?

What’s the yardstick?

This makes the case that gasoline is actually CHEAPER now.

Argh!

And, the politicians tell us there is no inflation!

No wonder the oil sheiks are screaming like stuck pigs. They are getting robbed like the rest of us.

MONEY: Is Retirement Just Too Dang Risky?

Is Retirement Just Too Dang Risky?
Wednesday, 8th February 2012 (by Robert Brokamp)

*** begin quote ***

3. Savings to the rescue…or not.I won’t trot out all the stats about how people don’t save enough, or how the baby boomers, as a group, are entering their golden years with too little gold (that is, net worth — I’m not suggesting that every retiree hoard the shiny metal). That’s bad enough. My concern is that for these (often-too-meager) savings to last, investment markets have to cooperate, and, as we’ve seen over the past decade or so, they often don’t. I’m not predicting Armageddon or anything like that; most of my longterm savings are in the stock market. But investing can be risky; we just don’t know for sure how much a certain stock or even a bond will be worth a decade or two from now. Yes, you can play it safer with CDs or Treasuries, but only if your money will last as long as you do — and keep up with inflation — while earning 2%.

*** end quote ***

Funny, he stumbled on my hot button. Gold. Specifically bullion. Silver. Even nickels!

On FBC, there’s an add where the retired couple goes to their bank to get their retirement savings and the teller gives them stacks of blank paper.

Maybe my depression era grandparents are too much on my mind, BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), they loved cash and savings.

I remember the Metropolitan Life guy calling on my grandmother when I was being watched for my Mom. (Maybe I was 4 or 5?) And, she pay him some small amounts for “insurance” on a whole bunch of people. “Eddie”, my paternal grandfather, would called to pay for “his relatives”, and he’d come out with his Chock Full A Nuts coffee can where he had “his change”. He had gold coins in that. I remember they’d argue cause “he was going to jail if the government found out he kept them”. (Wonder what ever happened to those?) And, later, I remember she’d go weekly to the Harlem River Savings Bank, to put something away or even just to have her interest “put in the book”.

Argh!

And you wonder why I have a tin foil hat?

So, even some of the most conservative financial writers don’t spurn 5 – 10% in “metals”. Of course, they mean “paper” (e.g., a gold ETF).

How did that work out for the counter-parties of MF Global?

Imagine my favorite mental experiment? Henry Hackel’s “box of money.” or my mythical pirate’s’ chest. “Open that pirate’s chest and what do you want to see: greenbacks, Confederate currency, or gold coins?”

At the very least, every time, you go to the bank, buy a roll of nickels. 2$. Put them at the back of the “junk closet”. Even today the melt value is 7½¢ each. How can you go wrong?

Argh!

Lest you hit retirement and one of the many risks in this article comes to pass. You’ll always have your “bullion” stash. Your own personal “pirate’s chest”.

And, no estate tax if I am wrong.

MONEY: Savings bonds have gone digital

Electronic U.S. Savings Bonds–Say Goodbye to Paper
by Rob Berger
in Investing

*** begin quote ***

As of today, U.S. savings bonds have gone digital. Paper savings bonds are history.

I’m get a bit nostalgic when it comes to paper bonds. There’s just something comforting in holding physical evidence of your investment. And the designs of paper bonds over the years have been quite impressive.

*** end quote ***

In the old days, a family accumulated savings bonds to pay for the children’s education. War bond, savings bonds, even savings stamps that led to a savings bond were common.

Over time, even rubes recognized that this was a joke.

Sorry, but this is just another scam pulled off on “We, The Sheeple”.

If the inflation rate is what I think it is, there’s no way that Gooferment Bonds of any type make any economic sense.

And, any interest on those savings bonds add to your taxable income in the future.

Also, those “savings” count in the formula for aid for that education.

Bullion is a better vehicle for any saving. Similar to passing along an inheritance, the rounds don’t appear on any form or schedule.

Hey, if the Gooferment and Wall Street can have “off book” and “off balance sheet” entries, why can’t you?

Call it jewelry. Just don’t keep it in a safe deposit box. (FDR raided those.) Everyone should have a garden.

Keeping what’s yours and / or getting back what was stolen from you is just financial self-defense.
