The Coronavirus / covid-19 pandemic is the biggest hoax in the history of the world. Billions of people across the globe have been duped and allowed themselves to be subjected to tyranny because of a spook.

As you will learn when you follow the links below, the figures for cases and deaths caused by Covid-19 are largely fraudulent and grossly inflated - the product of distortion, exaggeration and statistical trickery, with connivance by the elite controlled media to present them as established fact.

What exactly does it mean when pundits say that gold is a “store of value” and “hedge against inflation”? In this article we’re diving deep into these questions and discussing how gold has performed over time, not only measured in US dollars but in other currencies. The latter is important, after all, since 95% of the world uses a form of currency other than the USD in their daily transactions. For holders of these currencies, the value of their money in relation to the US dollar matters as much as the gold price. Full Story

Precious metals markets enter the month of May with some mixed signals near term. But the long-term picture continues to look constructive. All the metals appear to have put in major bottoms during the panic selling of mid to late March. Full Story

Silver is powering higher in a new bull market after getting clobbered in March’s stock panic. Investors have been flocking back to silver in the aftermath of that ultra-rare extreme-fear event. That brutal selloff also utterly wiped out speculators’ upside bets in silver futures, giving them massive room to buy back in. After being pummeled to record-low levels relative to gold, an epic silver mean reversion higher is underway. Full Story

While stock market investors have made up a big chunk of their 2020 losses, the major averages and nearly all sectors within them are still down significantly for the year. One exception is the mining sector. The GDX Gold Miners ETF (NYSE:GDX) exploded 42% higher in April to make fresh new 7-year highs. Full Story

This week Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called out “mismanaged” states, suggesting that the federal government should not be responsible for bailing out states that had poorly managed budgets before the coronavirus pandemic brought business activity to a halt, triggering a deep recession.

It is reasonably well known that many Roman emperors debased their currency (coinage). This was a very bad practice, since it is really a reflection of the debasement of the value of the kingdom (empire or country); going from a honest and just society to a corrupt and unjust society. Full Story

The Newer Normal in our post virus experience includes isolation, recession, depression, unemployment, business failures, personal bankruptcies, and never-ending Fed and government bailouts. The world changed in early 2020, as it did after 1941, 1964, 1971, and 2001.

And this could usher in the “suddenly” moment: “The president of the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) called for a new super-sovereign currency to offset the global dominance of the U.S. dollar, which he predicted would decline long term, while gold prices rally.” – Reuters, April 28, 2020 Full Story

So, are we going to fall into a depression? The chart below is enlightening. What it shows is that the number of people not in the labour force in the U.S. has increased 25% since before the start of the “Great Recession” in 2007. There are now 103.5 million considered to be not in the labour force. Of that total 54.8 million are retired and 9.9 million are disabled. That still leaves potentially 38.8 million looking for work, although some proportion of that are full-time students. Except that students are not exactly attending school these days. Full Story

It hasn’t been fun for silver investors. Gold has moved higher in response to the crisis, but silver has been nothing but weak and vulnerable this year. Is this silver’s destiny? Is this all that we can expect for the foreseeable future? Full Story

Physical gold continued to catch a bid last week, trading above $1,760 an ounce, on a host of head-spinning economic news, from millions more Americans filing jobless claims to record money-printing to negative oil prices. Full Story

U.S. Rep. Alex X. Mooney, R-West Virginia, is pressing the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission to answer the critical questions about market manipulation the commission long has refused to answer lest it expose the U.S. government's rigging of the futures markets and especially the gold and silver futures markets.

In a letter dated April 13 and made public this week, Mooney reminded the commission that it had evaded the key questions asked in his previous letter and that the questions are capable of yes-or-no answers: Full Story
