Frankly, we cannot conceive of a more cataclysmic set of circumstances for both the global economy in general, and the gold Cartel specifically [than currently exist]. Act now, before “traders” return from summer vacations next week or you may be locked out of the most important “protection trade” of all time!
The above introductory comments are edited excerpts from an article* by Andrew Hoffman (blog.milesfranklin.com) entitled Cataclysmic Observations.

Hoffman goes on to say in further edited excerpts:
In our view, there is no more damning proof of QE failure than collapsing interest rates amidst hyperinflationary money printing, which must continue given the gathering global consensus that what we predicted all along – “QE to Infinity” – is a fait accompli in the terminal stage of fiat currency Ponzi schemes.
To wit, essentially all nations are stuck in the same “QE trap,” which, after 43 years, has finally been universally sprung. Watching the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury implode today to 2.34% – amidst the “good news” of a (fraudulent) upward GDP revision, we couldn’t be more validated in our view that “QE to Infinity” is a fait accompli in the terminal stage of fiat currency Ponzi schemes – or more terrified of their ramifications.
Worldwide economic activity is rapidly approaching 2008-level free-fall speed with the only remaining “cushion” being history’s most blatant, heavy-handed, hyper-inflationary money printing and market support. Heck, look at Japan’s [most recent] economic data…[which reports] a much higher than expected 3.4% inflation rate, a 5.9% collapse in July household spending and a 0.5% decline in retail sales – combined with surging unemployment to a nine-month high…[If it were not for] the BOJ now overtly buying stocks…[these] losses would probably morph into a 1929-like crash. Hey, just a few months left until Abenomics must be “doubled up.” Gee, what could go wrong? Then again, at least they can wait a few months – as opposed to “Goldman Mario” Draghi, who if he can’t goose markets in the next few days, will be forced to commit Europe to its own version of “QE to Infinity” next Thursday.
Last but not least, under the heading of “how foolish do they think the entire world is?” is today’s comically blatant paper PM raids.
In gold’s case, what a shock, capped at exactly the Cartel’s 1.0% upside cap at exactly the COMEX open
with a second decline at precisely the 10:00 AM EST “key attack time number #1” (when global physical markets closed), coincident with interest rates plunging to their low of the day, whilst the PPT executed a perfect “dead ringer” algorithm to defend the Dow Jones Propaganda Average.
As for silver, it does not get more obvious how terrified the Cartel is of the “financial world’s Achilles Heel” destroying them – which we assure you, it will. I mean, seriously, we are at the end of the COMEX delivery period; and despite every attempt to attack silver, roughly half the miniscule 60 million ounces of silver is spoken for (as if that matters, as the Cartel hasn’t allowed a single ounce of the hundreds of thousands demand this year to be delivered). Geez, this doesn’t even qualify as an exchange anymore, it is getting so obvious. Think about it, what are the odds that, on a week when massive physical demand threatens to destroy the Cartel’s silver naked shorting scheme entirely, that silver would be attacked at the exact moment the COMEX opened every day of the week?
Oh well, we’ll just have to sit tight with our holdings of real money – which care of record U.S. Mint and Royal Canadian Mint statistics are flying off the shelves at rates above last year’s records. Moreover, I noted last week that Miles Franklin has seen surging demand all month; and given such an environment going into the year’s busiest period, the Cartel appears to be on or close to death’s door. Heck, the Sprott Physical Silver Trust (PSLV) closed at a year-high premium of 3.0% – putting it dangerously close to levels where “Admiral Sprott” can launch a Cartel-killing offering, whilst Euro Gold is on the verge of breaking above the very, very key round level of €1,000 – as it completes a massive year-long reverse head-and shoulders pattern.
Frankly, we cannot conceive a more cataclysmic set of circumstances for both the global economy in general, and the gold Cartel specifically. Act now, before “traders” return from summer vacations next week or you may be locked out of the most important “protection trade” of all time!

Many people have unwittingly bought into a highly addictive, sensationally-driven religion of doom-and-gloom where every day is a bad day, every war is a possible prelude to World War III, every market correction is a prelude to another financial crisis, every poor economic statistic is proof of a coming collapse. In theory, the above could all be true, and that’s why framing any event in such a fashion is so tantalizing. Welcome to the doom-and-gloom “financial-tainment” industry! Read More »

The U.S. economy is on life support, graciously provided by Central Planners but no amount of money printing can cleanse the rot of the U.S. economy. In this Markets at a Glance, we investigate the U.S. consumer and show that for a large portion of the population, things are not anywhere close to being better, in fact they are worse than before the recession.

History has shown us that all financial bubbles eventually burst. It is not a question of “if” they will burst. It is only a question of “when” and when the 7 current financial bubbles in America burst, the pain is going to be absolutely enormous. That being said, how much time do you believe that we have before these bubbles start to burst? Read More »
During the credit crisis, one of the problems that occurred was that too many loans were being made to people that had no ability of paying their debt back. We see this trend in full stride once again in the auto industry. Subprime auto lending is back in a big way. Why is this happening? What are its repercussions? This article explains. Read More »
If you thought the Eurozone crisis was in the past, think again…It’s a near mathematical impossibility that its weakest members can grow their way out of their debt and if deflation takes hold—as it has already in Greece and Cyprus, and is close in Portugal, Spain, and Italy—all bets are off.

In their infinite wisdom the Fed thinks they have rescued the economy by inflating asset prices and creating a so called “wealth affect”.

When they do it will drag the global economy into the next depression. Let me explain further. Read More »

If the price of silver were based directly on the real physical silver market, silver’s price should be at $5,000 an ounce. I’m not saying the price of silver will reach $5,000 an ounce; I’m just saying that the actual PHYSICAL silver spot price is not only extremely undervalued, but that it is an illusion compared to the real value of an ounce of physical silver, since it is totally disconnected from reality. [Let me explain further.] Read More »
In my opinion the “final financial shot’ which leads to live financial fire (collapse) will be in either the gold or silver pits of the COMEX or, ultimately, both. Why? Because, at $20 per silver ounce, it would take only $1.2 billion to crack that market open like a watermelon; because, for a pittance of money in today’s world, “trust” in the entire financial system of the West can be shattered. Some will say “big deal” or “who cares?” but it is a big deal and YOU should care! Read More »
