Something more to look into for those who are big on the gold standard, do consider "who" has almost all the gold in the world. While they may
currently be abusing us, raping us, and turning us into empty shells through fiat / paper debt-based Fed / central bank "currency", this was not
always the case. Prior to that, they abused us, raped us, and shattered our lives using GOLD.
Today, our masters are almost ready to go back to a new version of the former system, but don't be deceived, it can be just as insidious as a fiat
Don't get me wrong. I've sold gold and silver for over a decade, so I'm well aware of the "gold-bug" position. But as usual with our masters,
the "strength" we come to see in Option A, will actually end up being a weakness when we predictably choose Option B. In the case of gold ("real
money"), it does in fact possess all the attributes we would want. It is a medium of exchange, it is virtually indestructible, divisible, not
subject to artificial "inflation", etc. BUT, it's Achilles Heel is that today, no one really has any gold, EXCEPT the people running the world.
Ponder what that means.
You mention President Kennedy. His IQ was possibly the highest ever for a president, next to Jefferson maybe (we can all think of presidents who had
the lowest IQ!). He reasoned through the whole menagerie, and concluded that the best course was to more or less repeat the success of the colonies,
as repeated by Lincoln in his desperation during the so-called "Civil" War. In each case, a PAPER currency served quite well!
But the old "Greenbacks" of Lincoln were NOT debt-based, and that is key. Kennedy took the idea and ran, getting legislation passed that would
culminate in the very short-lived 1966 series of "United States Note", the $100 red seal bill, also known as the "Assassination Note" by
collectors. It was rumored that this was the real "why" he was killed. If enough common people held currency in their hands that didn't say
"Federal Reserve", well, they might just figure out that the Fed wasn't even necessary at all! This would not do. Today, these $100 red seals are
scarce, because almost as soon as they were issued, they were pulled back in by the banks, destroying the "evidence" that we could in fact have
money backed by nothing but the integrity and honesty of the people.
Yes, I know that last part will stick in a gold-bug's craw. But nothing is perfect, and the fact is, returning to gold-backed, or in all likelihood
"partially" gold-backed currency, will only restart the cycle, with more misery down the road (again). I'm sorry, I wish there was a simple fix,
but things have been arranged somewhat like a chess game, we're not going to get to checkmate via a straight, "obvious" path. In fact, the only
reason anything seems "obvious" at all, is because our masters have engineered it exactly so.
Again, let me repeat, the banksters, the IMF, the central banks of all the "wealthy" nations, they control almost ALL the gold in the world! Think
about the averag person, the only gold they have is in their miserable little wedding bands, or earrings! Even gold-bugs lament the fact that gold
has been ruthlessly "suppressed". Our master's power with gold is immense, it's an area where they are at the top of their game, really, be on
For further reading, you might check out the work of USMC Lt. General DelValle, who has written about this issue, alerting us to what could be a
"trap" set for us.
No, I would never say not to own gold, or silver (I sell it, why would I do that?), BUT, I have to be honest here, our masters, you know, the ones who
make the rules, they control the "gold card" you might say. Take it for what it's worth.
