The Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee set the wheels in motion this week for a comprehensive review of how it plans to clamp down on virtual currencies like Bitcoin.
Welcome to the wacky world of 2013, where bad financial news is met with the cheers of investors who believe stimulus will last forever, where foreign investors dump the U.S. dollar in bilateral trade while mainstream dupes argue that the greenback is invincible, and where everyone seems to be buying precious metals yet the official market value continues to plunge.
On Wednesday, President Barack Obama delivered a speech in Galesburg, Ill., decrying political conflicts that aren’t focused on improving the economy, heralding his Administration’s economic efforts and promising to do more work on the economy. Obama said that over the past 40 months, American businesses have created 7.2 million new jobs. But, as pointed out […]
Editor’s Note: This article by former Congressman Ron Paul first appeared at the-free-foundation.org, the temporary home for his weekly column until his personal web page is up and running. We are publishing it on Personal Liberty because of the impact Paul’s relentless criticism of Fed policy throughout his Congressional career had in bringing the Nation’s […]
You recommend gold and silver but they have crashed. I have lost thousands of dollars.
A: I admit I did not anticipate the crash. Actually, it was not a crash but a slam by the big commercial banks, led by JPMorgan. This slam damaged the precious metals market. Not permanently, but for maybe about two months. This is an act of desperation by the government in cahoots with the big banks. But remember, the U.S. and the world are awash in fiat dollars. Printing money is nothing but the constant devaluation and depreciation of those paper dollars. We have this last opportunity to cash in on these suppressed prices of gold and silver. And you have not lost anything unless you sell your metals at depressed prices. JPMorgan has gone from record shorts to record longs. This means they expect this temporary suppression to give way to the most explosive advances imaginable.
In any dealings with the Internal Revenue Service, and contrary to American jurisprudence, you are first considered guilty unless you can prove your innocence. There is little that sends more chills down the spines of American “taxpayers” than a letter or call from an IRS functionary.
My husband and I are both 76 and have very bad hearts. I feel that after January we won’t be able to have our heart medicine refilled. We are thinking about moving to Panama to have a chance to live. What do you think? Also, can you tell me how to get gold out of the United States?
(I began publishing my monthly newsletter The Bob Livingston Letter™ in 1969. The following is an excerpt from the June 2002 issue in which I advised readers to buy gold and gold stocks and get in on the bull market in gold. Over the next 10 years, gold gained an incredible 500 percent before its price was manipulated down over recent months. The gold stocks I recommended brought incredible returns.)
Gold is in phase one of a new bull market. Few people know it. The public won’t know it until phase three, after the dollar price of gold and gold stocks have skyrocketed.
If you have big losses in the big market now, switch to the gold market. Any broker or discount broker like TD Waterhouse can buy and sell gold stocks. You may have a chance to recoup your losses and accumulate generous profits by phase three of the gold bull which will be two to three years out.
The IRS/Tea Party Scandal doesn’t hold a candle to the size and scope of IRS abuses… So, it sheds no light on anything. Let’s boil this scandal down to simple words; words like “Tea Party” and “Patriot” and “Constitutional”; words that when used in paperwork to become tax exempt organizations, keep the people filing from being treated fairly.
You refer to gold and silver coins in your letter (The Bob Livingston Letter, subscription required). What about those of us that have invested in 100 oz. silver bars? How do I fare when the boom is lowered?
