    • Fed Admits It Needs Evidence Q1 Weakness Was Transitory – Ep. 251
      Summary: The Fed is now indicating it needs evidence that  the Q1 weak economic data is transitory and not a trend.  This is interesting for 2 reasons.  The Fed’s narrative has always been to tout economic growth even in the face of flimsy or no supporting data.  Now the Fed is actually admitting there is […] The post Fed Admits It Needs Evidence Q1 Weakness […]
    • The Dollar’s Decline Is Only Just Getting Started – Ep. 250
      Summary:  The dollar’s decline really started with the Fed’s too-little-too late rate hikes.  The rally of 2014 – 2015 was fueled by expectations of more aggressive Fed monetary policy that did not materialize. We’ve been trending sideways since then with the exception of an upward spike after the Trump victory.  Now, as much of the […] The post The Dollar’s […]
    • Will Republicans Dump Trump for Pence? – Ep. 249
      Summary: Republicans face chaos around Trump’s political difficulties, causing some to consider potential advantages of a President Pence.  Market volatility has not yet brought the DJIA below pre-Trump numbers while the dollar index slides and gold moves up. Meanwhile, household debt is higher than 2008 levels even as fewer Americans own homes. It looks lik […]

      Summary: The retail sector is in worse shape today than it was in 2008 during and immediately following the financial crisis. Retailing has been responsible for 10% of the jobs gained during this so-called recovery. Clearly part of the problem is the increase in minimum wage.  Why are retailers adding so many jobs when their […] The post Fed And Markets Excu […]

The viral “Crash JP Morgan buy silver” campaign

1911 cartoon shows Uncle Sam and J.P. Morgan rowing a boat. Morgan's enormous size reflects his stature and the power of his banking operations over the country.

Let me start off by saying that JP Morgan is probably one of the most hated institutions by the freedom movement because of their cozy relationship with the Federal Reserve and our government.  This kind of soft fascism, or crony capitalism, has allowed JP Morgan to be the recipient of many favors from Washington such as with bailouts, easy money from the Fed, and special regulations to drive out their competitors.  It’s had their fingers in our nation’s business for more than 100 years, causing much mischief and economic calamity.  In fact, Mr. JP Morgan was one of several financial leaders who influenced Woodrow Wilson and Congress to adopt a charter for our national’s third central bank, the Federal Reserve, in 1913.  Ever since then his company has been one of the main shareholders of the Fed, thus reaping obscene profits (it turns out that it pays really well to print out money and loan it to the government with interest).  This definitely marked a turning point in our nation’s history, and started a long road that will eventually lead our national to financial ruin due to monetary debasement.

But some people who are against JP Morgan have devised an ingenious campaign to bankrupt the megalithic bank.  It turns out that JP Morgan has been responsible for manipulating silver prices by selling tons of silver contracts for silver they don’t own in order to artificially drive down the price of silver.  These “naked silver shorts” account for billions of dollars on their balance sheet and some say it’s equivalent to counterfeiting (selling something you don’t actually own).  However, with the help of GATA (the Wikileaks of the precious metals market) who helped expose this silver market manipulation, many of these silver shorts from JP Morgan were exposed.  Thus, sometime last year a viral internet campaign began to encourage as many people as possible to buy silver.  It claims that if at least every person in the US buys a 1 oz silver coin, this would force JP Morgan to have to cover their contracts by buying silver on the open market, pushing up the price of silver and utterly bankrupting the bank.  Here’s a short video about it from Max Keiser, one of the leaders of the campaign.

  1. […] Prepare for very high inflation and possibly hyperinflation – For now it looks like our country is on a course to financial ruin due to inflation and an unserviceable debt.  This has been worrying me now for over two years and I’ve been trying my best to prepare for it.  My goal this year is to continue investing in gold and silver, stockpiling some nonperishable food, expanding my garden, and to buy more firearms and ammo.  When the shit hits the fan, I want ensure my family’s assets are protected and that we are in much better shape than those who didn’t heed the warnings.  For more information about this issue you can read my blog on protecting your assets against inflation and also consider this blog on how investing in silver could possibly bankrupt JP Morgan.
