What determines silver and gold prices?

The New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX) is the world’s primary clearing house for exchanges of paper products that supposedly represent silver and gold. While it is possible to purchase the physical product there, 250 exchanges involving no metal at all take place for every single real metal transaction. These paper imitations are used to RIG — oops, I mean SET the price of silver and gold. The very same frauds who print the near-useless paper currencies of the world use their paper power to crush price discovery and our ability to know what silver and gold are really worth compared to their fiat currencies. This gross depression of the real price is quite handy for them as they trade […]

borrowing VS saving VS stocking up

It is no accident that normal people do not understand economics whether it is the macro-economics of nations and the world, the micro-economics of their own household or anywhere in between. If enough of us did, those living off their arbitrary printing of fiat currencies would hang from the lampposts by the morning after the mass awakening. In the last couple of days I found myself explaining borrowing money that the banksters print out of thin air so they can “earn” regular interest payments from our meager incomes. I realized I should develop a picture that would better explain how this all works on a personal level. I did that with the two charts on the right. Since it […]

Hush money received – what does it mean?

While the politicians and lamestream media call it “stimulus”, the only thing it is stimulating is the dollar’s power-dive into worthlessness. They genned-up a gazillion new dollars out of thin air and sent a token to the people ultimately paying for it. Now every dollar that was already out there has a smaller share of the value they used to have. Visualize a 100-gallon aquarium with a bright red gallon of Kool-Aid in it. Add a gallon of water and the redness is diluted a bit. Add another two gallons and you see it is quite a bit more pale than the original drink. Keep that up for a hundred years and you would be hard-pressed to know what […]

What does “economics” mean to you?

This nice little three-minute video is a great introduction to the basics of economics and the relationship between real economics and liberty. Mises is a university, a publishing house, a public library. a research institution and a beacon of enlightenment removing shadows of flim-flam that dominate our public institutions, media and politics. Below is their overview of this video and why they produced it. – Ted Economics for Beginners is our continuing series of short animated videos designed to help students of all ages begin to think like an economist. The next installment takes a look at the ever more relevant topic of socialism. This three-and-a-half-minute video addresses a variety of economic problems that arise in a controlled economy, […]

Pre-Bait

A high school senior I know who has demonstrated strong academic performance has been offered $1,000 towards tuition at the college she currently plans to attend. Upon hearing about that I coined the term “PRE-BAIT”. Today’s teens are on track to know nothing about economics … just like everyone else. A thousand bucks sounds pretty exciting in their small world. It is going to take them more than four years to catch the bigger picture of the destination this track takes them to. The standard now is a four-year degree in soft-core education with no commensurate income enhancement; a $100,000 college debt to be paid off over the next 50 years working their way up from table-wiping, through burger-flipping […]

hush money

. The “grownups” in this country are being bribed with $600 each to keep quiet about $940,000,000,000 the congresscritters are ordering out of thin air. That, by the way, is 94% of a trillion dollars. I help you picture that on the right. Blow that image up and look it over at a legible size… rather impressive… and quite clear. Multiply that generous $600 bribe per adult times the USofA Census Bureau adult count and we spent $158,000,000,000 on money to keep the peasants from complaining about a trillion in self-serving corruption and graft. That is 17% of the total, graciously earmarked for us. Figuring the worldwide co-conspirators skim off 50% before they send it back to 535 members of […]

Economic Collapse is inevitable

… and imminent, by expert G Edward Griffin … who literally wrote the book on it: The Creature From Jekyll Island. As if we don’t have enough trouble. This is a look at another one of the apocalyptic horsemen I have been warning about. Stephan Molenaux and G Edward Griffin discuss the final phase of one more fiat currency that will bite the dust just as they always do. Unfortunately, that currency is the one we use. The global, one-world-order cryptocurrency they plan to replace it with will me several magnitudes worse. Prepare to live under the boot or outside the world they are planning. There is no third choice… unless you count “Give me liberty or give me […]

Fast Buck Freddie

https://www.bitterrootbugle.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Fast-Buck-Freddie.mp3 In 1975 The Jefferson Starship released album Red Octopus with the song Fast Buck Freddie on it. The lyrics railed against the Feral Reserve stealing our wealth right before our eyes that were squeezed tightly shut. This group of musicians did that quite a bit – tried to open our eyes to the evil lurking in our political “representatives”. Click the play arrow above to hear what they tried to tell us 35 years ago. The dollar bill of the time could be folded in certain ways to create an image of a joker shooting himself with a handgun. That was Feral Reserve humor as they laughed their butts off while sucking the value out of our hard-earned […]

November 3rd, 2020: A Day That Will Live in Infamy

By Gary D. Barnett   “We are reduced to the alternative of choosing an unconditional submission to the tyranny of irritated ministers or resistance by force. The latter is our choice. We have counted the cost of this contest, and find nothing so dreadful as voluntary slavery. Honour, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them, if we basely entail hereditary bondage upon them.” John Dickinson’s rewrite of the “Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking up Arms” in 1775, […]

filthy lucre

Money, in the sense of being a product or source of greed. The phrase is Biblical in origin, and the word “lucre” comes from the Latin word lucrum, meaning “profit.” In an amazing twist the normal prepper did not predict, paper currencies have become less desirable than electronic transactions. Hoo-Duh-Thunk??? We were always encouraging each other to keep some ready cash in the cookie jar for the initial phases of TEOTWAWKI where people still trusted their central bank paper, but couldn’t make their regular electronic money transfers function. In today’s Topsy-Turvy world, EVERYBODY KNOWS that THE VIRUS can live on paper currencies for over a week, making it a great vector for spreading DARPA FLU. Your cookie jar has just […]

repatriating gold

More and more big players are hedging their financial security against the looming collapse of the USofA Dollar-based economic world. BRICS, the Brazilian, Russian, Indian, Chinese, South African economic partnership began working twenty years ago to reduce dollar dependence in international trade. Several times that many countries are beginning to displace fiat dollars with solid currency, primarily gold and silver. If you haven’t begun, you should … real soon. – Ted – Poland Brings Gold Home SchiffGold.com Poland has repatriated 100 tons of gold from England. National Bank of Poland Governor Adam Glapiński announced the yellow metal’s return home on Monday. “The gold symbolizes the strength of the country,” Glapiński told reporters. He noted that the country could generate multi-million […]

the world of gold prices

My recently widowed mom introduced me to her account manager in one of the biggest USofA brokerage firm’s regional office. I told him that I wanted to see her investments more diversified to include some holdings of physical silver and gold. Of course that isn’t what they do, but rather than advising her against that, all he said was, “Your son is a very smart man”. Silver and gold have held value for thousands of years, surviving collapses of every currency that ever existed. Important to note that all currencies without real asset backing fail. 100%. Not IF, but WHEN. Other than one having the longest run in history, there is nothing else significant about ANY of the current currencies […]

Dr. Copper on our economic future

Economists call the spot price of copper, “Dr. Copper” because it is such a reliable indicator of our economy. The metal is used in manufacturing, construction, automobiles, electronics … darn-near all the hard goods created in our world have significant copper content. When producers stop ordering copper, supply-and-demand makes it cheaper. Plunging copper prices are a sure indicator that production has slowed down. Next up will be laying off human employees which will reduce incomes, in turn reducing demand for manufactured stuff. On a related note, the money manipulators, also known as central banks, and locally as the Feral Reserve, are cheapening world currencies to keep the economies artifically alive. The downside to that response is that each yen, […]

precious metals pricing

Real exchanges of physical metals do not determine market prices of gold, silver, platinum and other high-value metals. Pricing is established through exchanges of paper, or more accurately today, computer promises of metal that the buyers and sellers do not own and never will. The commodities exchange, now called COMEX was established in 1933 as part of their major reset of wealth distribution world-wide. The robber barons fixed it so the elites could take their money and power into the stratosphere while the great masses would have less and less of both due to structural changes they made from 1913 on. What does a market rigged by the banksters look like? The primary features are prices unconnected to the value […]
