Rather than write on a planned topic, I received at least 20 e-mails yesterday on the same subject so had to switch gears. The e-mails were all panicky because an analyst who works in the precious metals industry suggested that silver will not perform as gold will in the coming reset. I feel the need to address this because I believe it is faulty analysis and may have motivation behind it. I will not name the analyst but can be easily discerned.

In an interview it was said that during the Weimar experience, gold performed extremely well but silver lagged. It is for this reason they suggested not to pay attention to the current out of whack silver to gold ratio north of 80-1 and it will not narrow. This is just wrong for so many reasons. First, the ratio of silver to gold worldwide at the time was roughly 15-1. Silver was priced at $1.385 per ounce while gold was at $20.67 per ounce in dollar terms. This 15-1 ratio was much closer to the ratio of silver versus gold in the Earth’s crust and extracted via mining. Silver actually exists at a ratio of slightly less than 10-1 versus gold, this is what I call “God’s ratio”.

Because we have received a dozen or more questions on the same topic, I thought it might be a good idea to discuss. Michael Pento was recently interviewed by Greg Hunter They spoke about many topics including the silver/gold ratio. The questions we received were panicky in nature from holders of silver. Paraphrasing, “do you agree with Michael Pento that silver will not do anything on the upside if we enter a depression”?

I had not listened to the interview when the questions (mostly all the same) came rolling in. As a side note, rarely do I watch interviews or read opinion pieces from other authors. Not because I think I know it all, but because of the way I am wired. Explaining this, I am voracious for data and facts that I can use with past data and facts to form my own opinion(s). What good would it do if I simply parroted what others “believe”? While I am always open to other opinions or why my own may be wrong, it is important to me to be original and authentic in thought rather than repeat what others believe.

After watching Michael’s interview, I agree with most all of what was said. He did not pan or badmouth silver. All he said was he believes the 80-1 ratio between silver and gold will probably remain during an economic depression and that he prefers gold. He talked about precious metals going ballistic, that physical metal is the way to own it and paper holders (he was not talking about mining equities) will discover they own nothing. All good stuff and he very well may be correct but claiming the 80-1 ratio will hold is not telling you silver will underperform gold from current levels so please relax.

My personal opinion on silver (and Jim coined the phrase) is it will be “gold on steroids” for several reasons. First, silver is mined at a ratio of just under 10-1 versus gold and this is also about the same ratio as it is believed to exist in the Earth’s crust. I call it “God’s ratio”. Secondly, silver has traditionally been “used” for the last 100 years. Yes it is still stacked but much of the demand comes from industrial, military, technological, medical and solar uses. And yes there is scrap recovery but much silver is basically lost forever once used. There are no huge known stockpiles other than the 500 million+ ounce supposed hoard by JP Morgan and this is important.

{A couple other thoughts, under chaos conditions gold is portable and silver not so much whereas silver will be spendable and gold not so much. These differences are due to weight/value and transaction/the ability make change (as in change back for your gold coin). Also, when the masses do finally stampede into metals, silver is/will be more affordable to the average man on the street. This alone argues for higher demand for silver than gold under financially stressed conditions}.

If you understand that EVERYTHING is manipulated and rigged in price, and if you understand this has and is done using leverage (borrowed money and derivatives), then you should ask “why”. This is simple, it is ALL about the dollar and the ability of the US Treasury to borrow literally unlimited amounts of capital. It is all about control and the ability to pay for and continue control. Gold and silver are direct enemies of fiat dollars or fiat anything. They have been suppressed in price in an effort to support the value of paper currencies.

The important thing to understand is this, because the world has reached “debt saturation”…credit markets will seize up and the funding for manipulation will begin to wane and ultimately cease. Gold and silver will explode in price because they are not only the reverse of paper currencies but the “leverage” applied in these markets are positioned short in the effort to suppress pricing versus positioned long in paper assets in an effort to support prices.

What I am getting at is whether you call it a re set or any other name, markets will eventually “clear”. By clearing, I mean markets and asset’s pricing will find their own natural levels where buyers and sellers decide they should be rather than pricing manufactured at artificial levels decided by the operators. This is why I believe the silver/gold ratio will drop decidedly and approach the 10-1 level. 10-1 pricing is the “natural” level because it is the ratio silver and gold occur in nature versus each other. If this ratio does occur, silver will outperform gold by eight times.

To finish, as a precious metals broker, the vast majority of my business has been silver rather than gold (probably 80% or more). I have even actively swapped gold into silver and continue to recommend this. If Michael Pento is correct and the 80-1 ratio holds, owners of silver will have equal performance with owners of gold. If I am correct and the ratio does shrink, then silver will outperform. This is why I have personally stacked almost exclusively silver for the past several years. In fact, I use silver stored in a non bank vault as my personal bank account.  In my opinion it is usually wise to look at downside versus upside and in this case it strongly favors silver!

Yes this is a conservative message and the left will scoff at it…but that does not make it false. In fact, it is 100% true which is why it hurts so badly as the truth usually does hurt…someone!

HOW TRUE! HOW TRUE!

 

Class war at its best.

 

The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like

 

The folks who are paying for the free stuff , because

 

The folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer

 

Afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.

 

And the folks who are paying for the free stuff

 

Want the free stuff to stop.

 

And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more Free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!

 

Now. The people who are forcing the people who pay

 

For the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING

 

The free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the

 

Free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

 

So.. The people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the Free stuff by the people

 

who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

 

We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the Free stuff .

 

Now understand this.

 

All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere

 

Between 200 and 250 years after being founded.

 

The reason?

 

The voters figured out they could vote themselves money

 

From the treasury by electing people who promised to give

 

Them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

 

The United States officially became a Republic in 1776 ,

 

238 years ago.

 

The number of people now getting free stuff

 

outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff .

 

Failure to change that spells the end of the United States

 

As we know it.

Subterranean Homesick Blues AKA “The Reset” Riddle

Bob Dylan

Johnny’s in the basement

Mixing up the medicine

I’m on the pavement

Thinking about the government

The man in the trench coat

Badge out, laid off

Says he’s got a bad cough

Wants to get it paid off

Look out kid

It’s somethin’ you did

God knows when

But you’re doing it again

You better duck down the alley way

Lookin’ for a new friend

A man in the coonskin cap, in the pig pen

Wants eleven dollar bills, you only got ten

 

Maggie comes fleet foot

Face full of black soot

Talkin’ that the heat put

Plants in the bed but

The phone’s tapped anyway

Maggie says that many say

They must bust in early May

Orders from the D.A. Look out kid

Don’t matter what you did

Walk on your tip toes

Don’t tie no bows

Better stay away from those

That carry around a fire hose

Keep a clean nose

Watch the plain clothes

You don’t need a weather man

To know which way the wind blows

 

Oh, get sick, get well

Hang around a ink well

Hang bail, hard to tell

If anything is goin’ to sell

Try hard, get barred

Get back, write braille

Get jailed, jump bail

Join the army, if you fail

Look out kid

You’re gonna get hit

But losers, cheaters

Six-time users

Hang around the theaters

Girl by the whirlpool

Lookin’ for a new fool

Don’t follow leaders, watch the parkin’ meters

 

Oh, get born, keep warm

Short pants, romance

Learn to dance, get dressed, get blessed

Try to be a success

Please her, please him, buy gifts

Don’t steal, don’t lift

Twenty years of schoolin’

And they put you on the day shift

Look out kid

They keep it all hid

Better jump down a manhole

Light yourself a candle

Don’t wear sandals

Try to avoid the scandals

Don’t want to be a bum

You better chew gum

The pump don’t work

‘Cause the vandals took the handles

 

Why was his body camera not activated? Or was it and they are lying?

May 4, 2018

The Las Vegas Police Department has released nearly three hours of footage from the October, 2017 shooting at Mandalay Bay, in which Stephen Paddock, 64, killed 58 and wounded over 500 more.

The footage shows a group of officers as they prepare to enter Stephen Paddock’s 32nd floor room, when one shouts “Breach, breach, breach,” before a loud explosion can be heard nearby.

The footage is the first peek into the actions of the LVPD on the fateful evening of October 1.

Hassan Nasrallah: Israel Has Come Into Direct Confrontation With Iran
May 03, 2018

Transcript:

[…] Today, the whole region goes through a worrying situation. Worry is one thing, and fear is another. We say a worrying situation. Why? Because many leaders, governments, analysts, personalities and people in general, even people at home, everyday people who perhaps do not care much about politics, today follow the situation (with alarm), wondering where things are going, what will happen, because of certain events that occurred in Syria.

Last week, two important events took place, after which the situation remains tense.

The first event is the Israeli blatant and manifest aggression against the T-4 base or airport on the outskirts of Homs, that targeted Iranian forces from the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution of Iran who were present there, hitting them with a large number of missiles, causing 7 martyrs among its officers and soldiers and wounding others. This was a new, significant and important event. Maybe some people do not pay attention to its importance and magnitude.

In this operation, Israel has deliberately killed (Iranian soldiers). This is an unprecedented event. In the past, Israel has struck us [Hezbollah] for example in Quneitra, and it turned out that coincidentally Guardians [of the Islamic Revolution] officers were with us. Israel declared hastily that they did not know it, and thought that all (targeted soldiers) were Hezbollah’s. This is an event that has no precedent since 7 years, it is unprecedented since 7 years, that Israel openly targets the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution in Syria, killing deliberately, in an operation that caused a number of martyrs and wounded.

I have tried to explain this concept many times before but never had a chart to do it with. Please note the start date of the chart is 1971, this is not by any coincidence as that was the year the U.S. dollar became fully fiat and backed by nothing but “faith”. Before getting started, it is important to understand what August 15, 1971 really meant and why Nixon took us off the gold standard. The obvious is because with France and other nations demanding conversion of dollars into our gold, it would have only been a few short years before our stockpile was completely depleted.

The other, less obvious (so far) reason to come off the gold standard was because it allowed the U.S. to operate without the “restrictions” on monetary (and fiscal) policy that a gold standard imposes. In other words, once gold’s restrictions were lifted, literally unlimited amounts of dollars could be printed by the Fed along with unlimited amounts of fiscal borrowings by the Treasury…to a point. The chart above actually shows you exactly where that point in time was, please let me explain “why”.
