The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Where are the best places in the world to store your physical gold, silver, and other precious metals

There are an infinite amount of analysts who have their own varying opinions on buying precious metals, and more importantly, how and where to store them.

Some through ignorance or agenda will swear by having their customers purchase gold through etf's or other paper securities, while others believe in the old axiom about property that says, if you don't hold it, you don't own it.

But with the world no longer being a place where it takes months versus hours to get from one location to another, and communications and access are just a Smartphone touchscreen away, the options available for you to buy gold in one place, and have it stored in another, is no longer a cumbersome process, and in many cases is the most prudent of measures.

Personally I believe in a five-fold diversification when it comes to precious metals and wealth protection.

1.  Have some cash on hand, outside the banking system

2.  Have some physical gold on hand

3.  Have some physical silver on hand as part of an investment plan

4.  Have the majority of your wealth outside of banks, and outside your local jurisdiction (offshore)

5.  Look into mining stocks for the speculative portion of your portfolio, and don't be married to them forever

Today nearly all markets are manipulated to a lessor or greater degree, including equities, bonds, interest rates, real estate, currencies, etal... and the days of buy and hold ended following the Crash of 2007-08.  And what is left are hard physical assets that are meant to be used as wealth protection and protection of your purchasing power from the profits and earnings you acquire through investments or salaries.

Yet when it comes to storing your wealth this can be one of the hardest choices to make, verify, and trust.  And in a new White Paper published by Sprott Money Lmt. last week, the long time metals institution laid out the best and most secure areas to store precious metals in your offshore portfolio.

Holding that gold outside the banking system, and for some, outside one’s own country, are increasingly popular options. Canada, Switzerland, and four other countries have particularly attractive characteristics. 
Those are the conclusions of a new whitepaper produced by Sprott Money Ltd.
Canada and Switzerland are obvious choices. The True North has fabulous natural resources, one of the world’s most stable banking systems and hasn’t been attacked in more than 200 years (the last two times the Americans tried to invade - during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 - things did not work out so well for them). 
Switzerland, which ranked first on the Tax Justice Network’s Financial Secrecy Index in 2015, has fabulous attractions as an offshore investment locale. These include a long history of offering investors a safe, discreet place to store assets. That applies doubly for gold, which has a better reputation in Switzerland than in almost any other country. 
The Sprott report also identifies Singapore, Germany, and the Cayman Islands as current good offshore storage jurisdictions. 
The paper also acknowledges that many other international jurisdictions such as Dubai, Australia, and Hong Kong are regarded as good locales, but acknowledges that changing geopolitical risks requires constant monitoring of domestic and international investment environments. - Zerohedge
Ironically, the U.S. made the list as well, but with a caveat... and that is, no financial institution or storage location is considered rock solid safe, and the best place to store your gold and other precious metals is with the individual owners themselves.

As with all investments, taking the time to research where to store your physical metals is just as important as taking the time to research a broker or investment house.  Because in the end, the responsibility for our wealth lies with us, and not with those who we might commission to hold it.

Quarterly sales of silver Canadian Maple Leafs hit new record

Investors of precious metals can thank the Fed’s jawboning, and the bullion bank’s manipulation of both gold and silver, to allow for perhaps the greatest bargain ever in a discounted price measured for inflation.  And because of this, the Canadian Mint reported on June 7 that more silver Maple Leaf coins were sold in the first quarter than at any time in their history.
Sales of Canadian bullion hit a new record for Q1 of 2016 by passing out 10.6 million ounces to buyers through the first three months of the year.

Canadian mint sales of gold up 20% in Q1 while U.S. buyers of Comex gold contracts soar at record pace

For those obsessed with the current slam downward in gold prices, realize that this is a short-term paper driven anomaly by the U.S. central bank to protect the dollar from falling below 92 on the currency index.  And the primary reason to feel decent despite the $100 drop in the price is because demand continues to soar at record levels in both the physical and paper markets.

On May 28, the Canadian Mint released their sales numbers for gold maple leaf coins and for the quarter of 2016, purchases were up nearly 20% from the same quarter in 2015.

The Royal Canadian Mint Sold 212,600 Ounces of Gold in the First Quarter of 2016.
First quarter 2016 Canadian Mint gold sales rose 18.7% year over year in Q1 2016 from 179,100 ounces sold in the same quarter in 2015. First quarter 2016 gold sales put the Royal Canadian Mint on Track to sell One Milion ounces in 2016. 
The Royal Canadian Mint released its first quarter 2016 report this week. 
The report showed that Royal Canadian Mint first quarter 2016 gold sales increased 18.7% year over year from the first quarter of 2015. (212,600 ounces vs. 179,100 ounces) - SGT Report
Additionally, there was an interesting and historic anomaly last week in the Commitment of Traders (COT) report that shows open interest on the U.S. Comex market.  In it, speculators were leaving the gold futures market while at the same time the number of commercial traders going long in the metal did so at the fastest rate in the report's history.
Summary 
Speculative traders abandoned gold positions at a tremendous rate over the past week. 
While speculative bulls were dropping their gold contracts, larger commercial traders were buying up gold long contracts at the fastest rate in the report's history. 
While we have been bearish on gold for the past few weeks, we now think it is a good time for investors to start re-establishing gold positions. 
In the latest Commitment of Traders report (COT), we saw something very unusual happen but it wasn't on the speculative side. Speculative traders did what we expected them to do with the price downturn - longs sold hand over fists while shorts increased their own positions. But what was unusual was that Commercial traders (the big buyers of gold) increased their positions by the largest weekly amount in the history of the new COT report. - Seeking Alpha

Canada preparing for bail-ins as collapse of oil industry forces new legislation in their budget

On March 22, Canada's new ruling party submitted their budget for fiscal year 2016-17, and hidden within it was new legislation to approve of depositor bail-ins for banks that might become insolvent.  And with the Canadian oil industry in fill collapse due to lower oil prices, the leverage by the banks in the energy industry is pushing them closer and closer to default.



Introducing a Bank Recapitalization "Bail-in" Regime 
To protect Canadian taxpayers in the unlikely event of a large bank failure, the Government is proposing to implement a bail-in regime that would reinforce that bank shareholders and creditors are responsible for the bank’s risks—not taxpayers. This would allow authorities to convert eligible long-term debt of a failing systemically important bank into common shares to recapitalize the bank and allow it to remain open and operating. Such a measure is in line with international efforts to address the potential risks to the financial system and broader economy of institutions perceived as “too-big-to-fail”. 
The Government is proposing to introduce framework legislation for the regime along with accompanying enhancements to Canada’s bank resolution toolkit. Regulations and guidelines setting out further features of the regime will follow. This will provide stakeholders with an additional opportunity to comment on elements of the proposed regime. 
Bail-in Regime for Banks 
Canada’s financial system performed well during the 2008 global financial crisis. Since that time, Canada has been an active participant in the G20’s financial sector reform agenda aimed at addressing the factors that contributed to the crisis. This includes international efforts to address the potential risks to the financial system and broader economy of institutions perceived as “too-big-to-fail”. Implementation of a bail-in regime for Canada’s domestic systemically important banks would strengthen our bank resolution toolkit so that it remains consistent with best practices of peer jurisdictions and international standards endorsed by the G20. - Zerohedge

New Zealand becomes fourth country in last four months to propose giving people free money

First it was Finland in December, then Switzerland a month later to propose new programs in which they would give money directly to the people through a monthly stipend.  And not to be left behind, the province of Ontario, Canada is planning their own direct payments to citizens here in 2016.

And while some may see this as a fringe stop-gap measure for economies that have been devastated by lower energy prices and deflation, as that old saying goes, once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, and three times a trend, and we are now officially to the point where direct monthly payments are the norm, and possibly for the future for a large portion of the global economy.


The New Zealand government is considering giving citizens a regular monthly income whatever their work status, according to the country’s Labor Party leader, Andrew Little.
The party plans to debate implementing the system known as ‘basic income’ later this month. 
Universal basic income (UBI) systems could give people a regular allowance regardless of their income or assets. They would oust welfare benefits, student allowances or pensions. 
The regular monthly pay would give people flexibility to work as they want and not to quit jobs altogether. The measure will provide a basis on which citizens can go through the down periods as well as enjoy the up periods. — Russia Today

Saudi Arabia gains a strong victory as 18 month battle to kill U.S. fracking fells big opponent

Geo-politics is a messy business, and quite often much more complex than domestic politics.  Because when one nation decides to implement a policy that has global ramifications, more often than not innocents can get killed in the crossfire, and the actual goals of the government citing the conflict may exist far beyond those announced publicly.
When the leading head of the OPEC cartel decided to start an energy war by lowering the price of oil to levels not seen since the 1980’s, it started a chain reaction that would come to include Russia, the United States, Turkey, Canada, Mexico, and even Iran.  In fact, one could argue that Saudi’s oil gambit was the catalyst for forcing the U.S. to settle their decade’s long dispute with Iran as a means to put pressure on the Saudi’s to come back to Washington’s hegemony.
And despite the fact that Saudi Arabia was cutting their own throats in lowering oil prices, on Feb. 25 it appears they have finally taken a major piece from the board as the largest U.S. fracking company in the Bakken region of North Dakota announced they were halting production.

Canada following India in trying new scheme to get people to trust banks with their gold and silver

In November of last year, the government of India attempted to lure their citizens into depositing their physical gold into banks with the enticement of an interest bearing gold savings account.  However, barely a few tons were garnered from the people for this scheme showing that distrust in both the banks and governments to actually protect their gold is quite high.
And now just days after the Canadian government sold off most of its remaining gold reserves, a Canadian physical gold distributor, Canadian Bullion Services, is channeling its inner India and attempting to entice the Canadian people to follow the same path with their own offer of an interest bearing gold savings scheme.

Canadians are losing confidence in all sectors of their financial system

Consumer spending and affordability of products and services are just one component of a domestic economic system that alone it is not enough to bring a complete lack of confidence to a nation’s financial system.  But when you add in a growing decline in confidence for that nation’s currency, retirement programs, and investing structures, you have the ingredients for a rebellion that leads to collapse.
Hyperinflation has almost always been incorrectly defined as an out of balance expansion of a money supply, but the reality is, hyperinflation is a lack of confidence event, and it arises when consumers or producers are unwilling to accept assets denominated in the rejected currency at any price to purchase goods or services.
And it appears that this lack of confidence event may be occurring right now in Canada.

Should we get ready for a Canadian Spring?

Back in 2011, what would become known as the Arab Spring emerged in Middle Eastern countries like Tunisia, Egypt, and Yemen over the inability of the people to have access to affordable food that was primarily imported into their nations through world markets.  At the heart of the problem was the artificial strength of the U.S. dollar, and the need to buy these dollars to purchase foodstuff commodities.
But since the Arab Spring was a phenomenon was back then tied to 2nd world nations where wages and net worth were relatively poor, the question to ask now is, could this same type of uprising take place in a 1st world nation as well?

Canadian investors file a class action lawsuit against the London Gold fix banks for manipulation

Libor, Forex, money laundering for cartels, equities… what do all these have in common?  They are markets that banks and brokers were allowed to manipulate until it became public knowledge that fraud and corruption were taking place.
And with everyone and their brother knowing that gold markets and prices have been manipulated for decades, a new class action lawsuit filed by two Canadian investors through three Canadian law firms is trying to blow the whistle on one of the most egregious scams going on in the gold markets today.
In a suit filed on Dec. 22 against several banks involved in the London Gold Fix, lawyers from three firms are seeking $1.1 billion in restitution for losses taken by the manipulation of gold contracts and markets.

Ontario becomes ground zero for citizens being asked to pay for the debts of their government

$160,000.  That is how much each American ‘virtually’ owes bondholders to cover the government’s nearly $19 trillion in national debt.  And while our taxes are the primary collateral which allows Uncle Sam to borrow from a privately owned central bank, is there a chance sometime in the future where the government may use force, coercion, or even confiscation to pay these obligations that neither you nor I volunteered for?
US-Public-Debt-per-Taxpayer-Apr-2015
The answer to that may be coming sooner than we think, as our neighbor to the North, and in particular the City of Ontario, Canada, is so deep in debt that they are now asking their own people to voluntarily donate monies outside of proscribed taxation to pay on the city’s debt before insolvency bring it crashing down.

Got Karatbars? The time has arrived where governments need your money to stay solvent

There are fewer and fewer people alive today who remember President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's bank holiday and subsequent confiscation of gold under Executive Order 6102 back in 1933, and even fewer who understand what individual control over their own money really means.  In fact, despite the Credit Crisis that nearly collapsed the Western banking system and brought about the concept of depositor bail-ins just seven years ago, most Americans and Europeans still trust the system and their government to hold their bank accounts, retirement accounts, and paper assets sacrosanct.


But history has shown that greed is a very powerful elixir, and very few if any institutions can withstand the corruption it brings over the course of time.  And while the vast majority of people find it difficult to believe that the government would ever pass a law to take their money held in a bank, broker, or retirement account, one such government is suddenly becoming ground zero for just that potential action.

Over the Christmas holiday, data points tied to a collapsing housing bubble and a destruction in Canada's oil industry has led the city of Ontario to publicly beg its citizens to help bailout the government as the municipality finds itself on the cusp of bankruptcy, and without hope of paying off $300 billion worth of debt it has accumulated.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is asking that you consider giving your money to the Ontario government as well. 
For a mere $21,000 for every man, woman and child in the province, Ontario could be debt free. 
No, this is not some kind of holiday joke about the Grinch who stole Christmas.
And, no, voluntarily donating to the government isn’t in lieu of paying taxes. 
It is in addition to them. 
Canada’s largest province has asked its taxpayers to donate their hard-earned money to the cause of bailing out the much indebted provincial government. 
On top of paying among the highest taxes in North America, and coping with skyrocketing hydro prices — hikes directly caused by the decisions made by this Liberal administration and the previous one — the Wynne government wants more. 
Treasury Board Chair Deb Matthews made the bold request last week, and specifically asked folks to donate their tax return rebate to help pay off the provincial debt. - Toronto Sun
Fast forward to the United States.



Following the 2008 Credit Crash and subsequent Great Recession, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi proposed a bill that would have nationalized all 401K's, IRA's, and pension accounts under government control to help subsidize the then $14 trillion in national debt.  This bill never made it to the House floor, but since them the debt has risen to over $19 trillion and the same government has instituted two other schemes such as President Obama's MyRA program, and the Treasury Secretary's move of public pensions into U.S. Treasury debt that is as un-payable as Ontario's debt appears to be.

(Just read Secretary Lew's words during the last debt ceiling debate where Social Security would be un-payable without allowing the government the power to borrow more money)


The overall point is that the world is finally finding itself forced to pay the piper after years of irresponsibility and unsound financial practices that place global debt at a whopping $230 trillion, or
300% over the world's annual GDP.  And if anyone is wondering why the G20 is now forcing all Western nations to pass Bail-in laws to have you and I pay for the next financial crisis, all one has to do is look at what is taking place in Venezuela, Argentina, and now Canada to see that the Day of Reckoning is now upon us.


So if any cash, savings, or retirement accounts held by governments, or in banking institutions is as vulnerable as it was 80 years ago during the last great bank holiday, what alternative is there for you to protect your wealth, get it offshore and away from any potential confiscation, and into something that is not readily taken by these now insolvent institutions?

You can do this with a company called Karatbars



Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.

And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, Karatbars is working on a new e-wallet system that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system.  From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.

Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet.  And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.

But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate.  Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.

Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.

How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money?  And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule.  And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.


The global financial system, along with dozens of respected economists, are telling us that now is the time for the end of our current form of money, and the beginning of the transition into a new monetary system that is expected to be backed by gold.  And with banks, governments, and even Harvard professors mandating that central banks have no choice but to eliminate cash from usage by the people to stave off collapse, will you wait until it is too late to make a decision on how you will protect your wealth, and be able to function within the coming new monetary system?

To learn more about Karatbars, you can contact the individual who sent you this article, and click on their referral link to open a free account and begin buying, or building your own gold savings or business with the company of the future.

Is Canada the first domino to fall in the new Great Depression?

Interesting things have happened 18 months after oil prices fell off a cliff to hover down around $35 per barrel, with the deflationary environment that now permeates the global economy just a microcosm of the overall problems that signal the world entering into a new Great Depression.  And besides currency wars, trade wars, and escalating hot wars that are the norm across the world today, one economy may be the first domino to trigger the global collapse.

America’s legacy of lost jobs and lower wages 20 years after NAFTA

In 1994, President Bill Clinton signed into law the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which allowed new parameters for trade and trade protections between the nations of Canada, Mexico, and the United States.  This new treaty superseded the Canada-United States Free Trade Agreement, and opened up the Western hemisphere to a new globalist approach to trade.

But as the former Independent Presidential candidate Ross Perot succinctly predicted, NAFTA would go far beyond its original intentions and scope, and instead of simply providing a standard of rules by which trade would take place between the three nations, the end result was the corporate use of the treaty to move businesses completely out of the United States, and into one or all three countries to use their own laws to profit from loopholes which have led to over one million high paying jobs having fled the U.S. in the 20 years the trade agreement has been in place.

Canada to open first 5 Bitcoin ATM’s as countries outside U.S. prepare for end of dollar

This week, the Las Vegas based company, Robocoin, will be opening up five Bitcoin ATM machines that will have the capability of exchanging Canadian dollars for Bitcoins, and Bitcoins for Loonies.  The move is huge for the emergence of Bitcoin as it continues to extend into the mainstream, and offer an alternative for consumers as distrust of the U.S. dollar and world’s reserve currency grows.

Price inflation for metals leads Canada to toss the penny

On March 30th, the nation of Canada made a decision to eliminate the penny from its monetary system and use a rounding up method for purchases and transactions.  The decision was based on the rising cost of metals which are used to mint the 1 cent denomination, and no longer will it cost 1.5 cents just to create 1 cent.



Canada will withdraw the penny from circulation this year, saving taxpayers about C$11 million ($11 million) annually and forcing retailers to round prices to the nearest nickel, the government announced in its budget today.

The Royal Canadian Mint, which has produced 35 billion pennies since it began production in 1908, will cease distribution this fall due to the coin’s low purchasing power. Production and handling cost for the one-cent coin are a C$150- million drag on the economy, according to a 2006 study by Desjardins, a Levis, Quebec-based financial institution. - Bloomberg

When I was a military brat overseas in Spain in the early 1980's, the USAF was doing this form of monetary policy, and rounding up transactions to the nearest nickel.  With inflation devaluing the dollar denominations fast and furious, it may be time to make that policy complete and join Canada in tossing the penny from the economy.
