Noonan goes on to say in further edited excerpts:
Debt has been growing exponentially, being refinanced ad infinitum with interest rates close to zero, while the ability to repay it has been in an unabated decline. There is never enough “money” to pay off both principal and interest….[because, in fact,] there is no money. All that exists in circulation is fiat paper debt…
Debt is not, and can never be, money. The only lawful money in the United States is gold and silver. This remains true to this day, but since the questionable passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, the Federal Reserve has destroyed all US issued Notes that were specie-backed, and gold and silver coin no longer circulate.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” Unfortunately, the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 changed all that allowing the elites to take over control of this nation’s money issuance. Then and there, the people lost their government to the money changers, and it is now only criminals that are in control, and so successfully almost all the people still…are not [aware of that fact].
To avoid the debt trap, owning physical gold and silver is the best way to preserve, and even grow, purchasing power. Keep on buying when, and as much as, possible, even cashing in retirement funds. Better to pay any tax/penalty for getting out early, for if there is one thing certain in the not too distant future, the corporate federal government will confiscate all retirement plans, exchanging them for government bonds that can no longer be sold to foreigners who refuse to buy them. It is a choice, at least until the government says otherwise, which it will.
The Current Gold Situation
For the present, gold has stopped declining. Whether this will lead to a change in trend remains to be seen. It takes time and a lot more volume effort to change a trend. While the numbers for potential events that can keep gold in a sustained rally remain high, none appear to be in play, at the moment, even with the threat of war in Ukraine…[and Iraq].
What is most reliable in defining the character of any trend is the retest after a move of any degree. If 1330 is retested next week, it will be a continuation of recent relative strength. What will be important is HOW the next retest develops, be it from 1330 or last week’s rally high.
If the trend is to turn upward, the next correction should show smaller ranges down, and volume should decrease, indicating less selling pressure. A correction should also be less in duration, lasting 3-4 trading days lower, for a relatively stronger trend, to 5 -8 trading days, which would be more typical in a weaker environment, which is where gold is now.
The Current Silver Situation
Silver has been more depressed than gold, but it could turn into a more important metal to watch if price approaches its resistance/support levels ahead of gold. The down trend is far from turning.
Silver would have to rally over 22.90 to about equal the last failed rally which began at the end of January. In fact, that last failed rally is sufficient reason to not get overly enthused about the current rally. There needs to be some kind of confirming indicator that a trend change has occurred, and none is apparent, yet.
When the next correction is marked by smaller ranges, without the larger numbers of down days since the February high, and not last as long in duration, these will be more reliable signs of change.
Owning physical gold and silver is the best way to preserve, and even grow, purchasing power. Keep on buying when, and as much as, possible.

How long these low prices in gold and silver will continue is the ever pressing question on the minds of the gold and silver community and topic of so many articles written by the experts. While many have striven to provide an answer, and 2013 failed to match the “predictions” as to the “When?” issue, the best answer is: For as long as it takes. Here’s why. Read More »
This article is a brief overview of how the U.S. government has come to be usurped by a banking cartel that controls government, media, corporations, etc. all because of their control over the money supply in the Western world and, understandably, why they are desperate to keep their Ponzi scheme from unraveling and being jettisoned in favor of gold and silver and concludes with a look at what the charts have to say about the future movement in both gold and silver.
