    This Is Going To Happen In 2016: “One Of The Greatest Commodity Plays Of All Time”

    commodity-price

    While stock markets held strong near their all-time highs, the last year saw massive financial destruction in global commodities markets. Oil, gold, silver, steel, coal and other raw materials experienced price drops not seen since just before the the Crash of 2008. As an example of how bad it has gotten in the raw materials space one need only look at the Baltic Dry Index, which is used to assess the cost of shipping raw materials by sea. Signaling serious economic problems, the BDI recently hit its all-time low, surpassing even the lows hit during the last financial crisis.

    That a significant financial, economic or monetary event will soon be upon us cannot be denied.

    Yet within crisis there is opportunity, and knowing what can happen and how to position yourself accordingly ahead of the fallout will not only ensure that your wealth is preserved, but will help you thrive financially. While we have always urged those concerned with the state of affairs in the world to have a healthy storage of food and supplies in anticipation of supply disruptions or hyperinflationary monetary policy, a major financial event will, as it did following the last crisis, likely lead to significant gains in precious metals as investors the world over shift capital into the historical monetary asset of last resort.

    As Future Money Trends explains in the following micro-documentary, there are three perfect catalysts for why silver and gold are headed to new highs in the very near future: low prices and global supply shortages, war, and the collapse of U.S. bond markets.

    What we are about to show you is undeniable evidence… This is going to happen within the next year… Silver is likely the most undervalued asset available to investors today. 

    Watch (Courtesy Future Money Trends):

    The 36 months that followed the Crash of 2008 saw precious metals go to new highs with silver topping out at $50 per ounce. Today that same ounce is selling for around $14. Whether you acquire the physical metals directly or diversify your investment portfolio, now is the time to capitalize on the future trend.

    As the next crisis and eventual collapse of our system plays out on the global stage in coming months and years, trillions of dollars in wealth will be vaporized. But as is always the case throughout history, those who have the forethought and willingness to first acknowledge the realities and then prepare for them while others ignore the warnings will come out on top.

      I cant see how the economy is still supposedly growing when global trade has basically come to a standstill. Oil at $35? Gold at $1050? Silver at $15?

      I am not saying these things can’t go lower, but even Kyle Bass said in an interview on zero hedge that now is the time to be aqcuiring energy stocks. Like oil, silver moreso than gold looks to have similar consequences developing for the producers in that the current low prices will restrict production and over a year or two lower global supply. If demand maintains its current pace in either case prices have no alternative but to rise.

      I would say with the physical supply issues in gold and silver, the manipulation that has been exposed, and the collapse ahead of us that this is the opportunity many who were buying at $25 or more hoped for. Look at the charts from the 70s. economically it was a similar environment. Gold went to 200, then dropped back to nearly 100 before going to about $700 an ounce. Silver rose to $50 from about $2 in 1971. Capital goes to safety first, then it hits bubble levels when people start piling into it. We are nowhere near that with gold, oil, and silver at the prices they are today.

        OFF TOPIC !

        Members of an armed militia stormed a national wildlife building in Oregon…

        ht tp://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/01/03/armed-militia-storm-national-wildlife-refuge-building-following-protest.html?intcmp=hpbt2

        Ammon Bundy posted a video on his Facebook page urging militia members to come and support the cause. He said “this is not a time to stand down. It’s a time to stand up and come to Harney County,” where Burns is located. Below the video is this statement: “(asterisk)(asterisk)ALL PATRIOTS ITS TIME TO STAND UP NOT STAND DOWN!!! WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! COME PREPARED.”

          Senate Votes Against HR 4269 – U.N. Weapons Collection/Disarming Americans

          An Exclusive You Have To See: The Last Frontier of Free Press Is Here! No More Censorship, Unlike YouTube and Others!

          UPDATE ON HR 4269 – SENATE VOTES IT DOWN BY NARROW MARGIN!!!

          U.N. weapons collection/disarming Americans

          The 2nd Amendment Saved .. 53-46 vote!

          The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11. It CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT of all UN countries.

          By a 53-46 vote – The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution.

          This is that brief, glorious moment in history when everyone stands around … reloading guns in preparation for the next battle.

          Now, which 46 Communist Senators Voted to Destroy Us?

          Well, let their names become known ! See below. If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 traitors, vote against them.

          In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

          The Statement of Purpose from the Senate Bill reads: “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”

          The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an
          international gun registry. Now get this – on all private guns and ammo.

          Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional (And God-Given!) rights to a foreign power. (Are they really that ignorant? Stupid? Or truly TRAITORS)
          Here is the list of the 46 senators (Communist Maggots and TRAITORS) who voted away your Second Amendment right to bear arms and to give your rights to the U.N. to USE AGAINST YOU:

            • sixpack says:

              Plus 2 independents, on of which (Sanders) is running for president. I wasn’t too concerned about Sanders, UNTIL NOW.

            • Billy Hill says:

              You’re an idiot.

            • Karl V. says:

              The so-called “Independent” from Maine is Angus King… a popular politician here who changed nominally from Democrat to Independent, but whose views continue unchanged.

              He is well-liked and respected here because Maine, once a solidly conservative State, has been overrun with carpetbaggers from Massachusetts and other liberal areas. Plus, of course, the universities here have been indoctrinating the youth for the past 40 years with liberal dogma.

          • I am confused by your post.

            HR4269 was submitted in December and sent to committee where it will likely die. It has not passed the House and cannot be voted on in the Senate.

            The Senate voted against allowing the US to sign the UN Small Arms Treaty back in 2013.

            I could not find anything new on either matter. Am I missing something?

            • muleapple says:

              @ Rebecca

              I did a quick Google search. You are correct. HR 4269 is The Assault Weapons Ban of 2015, introduced 16 December 2015. It has nothing to do with the UN.

              Just because it appears on some website doesn’t mean it’s true. It pays to do one’s own research, as you did.

            • apache54 says:

              Rebecca,
              sometimes posts are not completley accurate and i don’t like that either BUT, the key part of the article is WHO voted for and WHO did not vote for it, PEOPLE need to know as much as they can about WHOM is scum and who are just fence riders!

          • I believe your information is incorrect. This appears to be a congressional bill not a senate bill, and doesn’t appear to have been voted upon.

          Grandee
          Please give me more info on this.
          I heard it once last night while I was on patrol and didn’t hear anymore. Just getting up at 1000hrs this morning.
          Where can I go to find out more. This could be the Come to Jesus moment that we have all been dreading.

            Patriots:

            Even CNN is carrying the Harney County, Burns, Oregon protest against the BLM/feds.

            I have been posting for at least 2 weeks on the protest and begging for a subject on it at shtf. I guess there is nothing to SELL from this kind of story.

            I joined a group and convoyed over to Burns. The protest was peaceful and NO ONE suggested burning down the town.

            Was surprised at the non participation of the cities residents until I saw on CNN dot com that a huge percentage of people in that county and town WORK FOR THE FEDS in some capacity or another. Lots of the FED workers worked on ranches until the BLM has corralled all the land; a lot of the ranch hands now work for the BLM! Couple that up with the fear of the law enforcement people in Burns who sided with the Feds against the Hammonds, you have a town living in fear of all angles.

            The best part of a speech was “We are not here to start a war, we are here to stop a war”.

            Most protesters were from Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Oregon. Because they know what is up with the BLM/Feds. They are trying to lock up the resources of the west for the “elite” once the One World Order comes about.

            The Hammonds own a ranch near the Steen Mountains. I have been through there 3 times and it is one of the most pristine, beautiful places you could ever hope to see.

            I supported the Bundy Ranch fiasco with $$$$ and will continue to support the patriots who have taken a stand against the alphabet agencies of the feral government.

            Go to the Bundy Ranch blog and see what you can do to help support these people. They are putting themselves in harms way to defend America from ‘rich thieves’. When will you actually take a stand other than thumping on computer keys here at SHTF?

            • Makemyday says:

              I think you can find more on Facebook about the protest in Burns; however at the moment it is BIG news on CNN dot com. Be sure to watch all the info on the side of the page and scroll down through the comments.

              I didn’t take time to look at the comments as I wanted to see if MAC had finally picked up the story.

              Isn’t this blog about patriots and survival? Or is it just based on ‘clicks’?

            • This has all the earmarks to turn into an excuse for oblubber toe activate his executive order and declare martial law. We need to all watch our backs closely.

          • grandee says:

            Sarge–Fox News on line, ’bout 6am this morning

        • H Muller says:

          People, you need to be exercise judgment in picking your fights and methods. A bunch of ranchers who treat federal land as their own – it’s not an issue which will resonate with most Americans, at least not until some innocent people get killed.

          Plus, consider the lessons of the past. Many (if not most) of these militia leaders are paid government informants, some fully trained undercover FBI or ATF agents. Are they leading the gullible, idealistic patriots over a cliff like lemmings?

          This Oregon case is a poor cause to rally around. There are so many better examples of ordinary Americans being trampled underfoot by the NWO. This incident could play perfectly into the bad guys’ narrative about “those gun toting right wingers being a danger to Amerika, just as bad as mid-east terrorists”.

          • Makemyday says:

            H. Muller:

            Your post is pathetic and full of lies!

            • Makemyday says:

              H. Muller:

              Where is your line in the sand? When the goons are burning down your town or when one of the alphabet agencies take a swipe at you personally.

              You should be so lucky to have any one of those patriots you so sorely paint with your abysmal brush, to have your back when your time comes.

              • Sorry to follow this off topic thread, but, I think its important to take note of this latest uprising.

                Take it easy on H MULLER, MMD. Many people get taken in by the “double agent” or the “agent provocateur” stories. While this can be a problem the fact is, there are those that are in the fight for their own reasons and they may not totally 100% align with the basic reasons the conflict starts. I believe that when the fire gets hot, those guys will bug out. I do agree with H Muller on some level. It may be hard to get this particular problem to resonate with the majority of Americans, however, we don’t get to pick our parents and we don’t get to pick our wars. After all, the first American Revolution started with gun confiscation in Kentucky, right? Maybe the second will start with land mis-appropriation in the west? I understand it. Maybe thats all it takes. Its been said that 3% is all you need. Maybe this will do it. All we need is enough to give us a spine.

                The funny thing is, all they have to do is shut down the internet and then you won’t know anything. I believe when things get really bad, the Internet will go down and that will be the final straw. Thats when the chambers will all be loaded and the safeties click from safe to fire. Every idiot knows when the government can’t modify the information you get and they shut down your alternate channels, its time to start the war. They dance around that much like they dance around blatant 2A violations.

                To those who scoff at my allegations of government’s desire to violate free speech and violate the 2A, I would ask these two questions:

                1. If we didn’t have a first amendment do you think there would even be an unregulated, alternate media?

                2. If we didn’t have a second amendment do you think we’d still be allowed to have guns?

                In ever place that didn’t have those, the press is gone and so are the guns.

                A third question to ask:

                3. Do you understand yet why they want to take the guns? (Look at Bundy Ranch. Look at Hammnond Ranch.)

                They want to take the guns so these uprisings are not possible. These are a challenge to government power. Government does not give one little rat shit about your safety or how many of you die. They only care about public perception in and of their ability to manipulate your thinking. They want the guns because the guns give people power. No, maybe not as much as military, but, enough so they don’t get off completely scott free.

                …and to anyone that thinks the government wants to get rid of guns to curb crime or terrorism, I would say: You’re an idiot. Paris. Chicago.

          • JimmyBones says:

            Muller, you obviously value your security over your freedom…You deserve neither.

            • Mr muller evidently forgot that the initial war of independence was fought over land an a corrupt government (Britain) trying to tax and usurp the colonists rights to protect themselves. Just sayin is all

          • john stiner says:

            What is find offensive about the Oregon case is that the ranchers were convicted under a terrorism law.

            The ranchers basically did controlled back burning to create a fire block on the ranch.

            The fire got out of control and burned the national forest land.

            But why convict them of terrorism related laws? That is the tyrannical oppression in this case.

            They should have only gotten a ticket for illegal burning then had to pay civil restitution.

            Not the mandatory 5 years prison for terrorism. Even the judge thought it was bull shit and that is why the reduced sentence, but the over zealous FEDS appealed wanting longer prison terms.

            And yes, the Militia Men are going to get themselves into the next Ruby Ridge or Waco.

            • Abolutely! The terrorism laws are being abused every day. They first passed them because people let them because people wanted to feel safe. Now they’re using them to convict people of all kids of things that have NOTHING to do with terrorism. Civil asset forfeiture is the same way. It was designed to deny drug dealers and cartels the ability to defend themselves. Talk about unconstitutional! Basically, its a way to punish before you convicted. THEN when they found out they could simply keep the forfeiture, well, damn, people. Just let the cops pronounce you guilty. Who needs a court. Oh, I’m sorry, thats EXACTLY what they did.

              I say Bundy Ranch and Hammond Ranch are way overdue. The BLM is another out of control sub-corporation spawned from the first evil intent of The Act of 1871. They’re abusive. They treat the ranchers like our government treated the Indians. They write a contract and then try to figure out a way around it. No nice words for any of those criminal bastards.

            • Republicans pushed through (eco) terrorism laws to jail left wingers like Greenpeace and others who were damaging property. Taking over the building will come under those same laws. What goes around comes around. They burn to increase grazing lands not protect their home from fire. They were not burning around their home, but that is handled a different way.

              Confiscation laws were the same… to “get” drug dealers. Republicans passed all those laws against liberal screaming about violating Constitutional rights. I was opposed to those violations of our Constitution. We got that appealed here in New Mexico… one win in 2015.

              Another set of laws violating our Constitutional rights are arbitration provisions in corporate contracts and new Republican laws saying we cannot sue for our rights. Under the Constitution suing in a court of law is our only redress of grievances. Only redress.

              Now we are having trouble with 2nd Amendment rights to keep and bear arms, under attack by Democrats. They have not gotten that through, but they are working on it.

              We have a Constitutional right to free speech but it does not include lying, defamation, etc. and never did. Those actions can get you into court if someone objects.

              We have a Constitutional right to freedom of religion. That means Christians and Muslims. Both. Separation of church and state is the lynch pin of freedom of religion. Republicans are trying to turn the US into a theocracy, which it never was and which is Unconstitutional. Christian churches are losing the PEOPLE of this country, this has nothing to do with Muslims. Now they want a Christian theocracy to force everyone. No matter where you are in that game, it is Unconstitutional.

              For good or bad I love our Constitution. I want to return to Constitutional protections. Without them, it is just strong man rules like any dictatorship. If you don’t want the ENTIRE Constitution and Bill of Rights, then get your guns out because everything becomes police state and internal wars like most 3rd world countries.

              • BTW, after reading HB4269, it is written to challenge the current interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. It is designed to go before the Supreme Court for reinterpretation. It is the only way to change existing gun rights and it is the Constitutional way to do so. I am opposed to it, I prefer the current interpretation of 2nd Amendment rights. It is now in Committee being reviewed. It would have to be approved, put to a vote, pass, go to the House, run through Committee, pass vote unchanged then go to the President for signing. Boehner was pushed out because he violated these procedures and wanted to pass laws by fiat… just vote on what we give you. This is one of our protections, the difficulty passing laws over everyone’s input.

                I love our Constitution. It is worth fighting for. Ranchers abusing public lands for profit are not.

            • Only this time there will be more of them

          • Choctaw Warrior says:

            The Federal Government cannot own land other than the 10 sq. miles in D>C> and like Puerto rice , the Virgin Islands ect. The terrorities i think they are called. Our Constitution states the feds cannot own this land. Your gov is a bunch of lying,stealing son of a Bitc s.They cannot own any land inside the States. The land in Oregon belongs to Oregonians and not the fuderal guv. WAKE UP PEOPLE.

            • Even if the feds cannot own land, although I do not see why not, those old boys do not own that land either and they have made a living from it for a long time. They have lived out of the taxpayers for a long time. If it should be sold back to the people, the Bigs would get it all. As have the logging companies. I am from Oregon and have seen it first hand. The feds hold it for us but lease it and give our parks over to destruction. Like being burned. They were burning because they want to run cattle. It wasn’t terrorism as far as we know, but if Greenpeace did something as big as that they’d be hauled in under ecoterrorism laws. That said, if the judge gave an inappropriate sentence they should try the judge.

              • Rebecca tell me one job the government has ever created that was not first funded by tax payers money. Tell me one job the government has created that has brought money in the form of taxes to the government. Maybe those grounds are not owned by the ranchers but have you ever heard of double jepaordy. Why is it that they served their time and yet the government says no not enough. They were already convicted and served time. This is wrong,, the Feds have been strong. arming the people for as long as I can remember.. They exist by us not for us. As it stands these ranchers will spend more time in for this than if they killed somebody. Again this wrong.

                • They did not serve the minimum time for the offense. I think the feds should have dropped it and leaned on the judge. The Republicans were happy to make laws about ecoterrorism when the tree huggers were complaining and fighting years ago. These guys were hoist on the same petard. Every time the Constitution is ignored, others pay in the end. I doubt they burned federal land accidentally. Ranchers leasing forest land have arrogantly burned federal forest land to improve Cattle feed for decades. They used to joke about it openly. I am not on the fed side in this but I don’t have much sympathy for a 1000 ranchers who have sucked the taxpayers dry for generations and feel entitled to do what they please. My uncle is an Oregon rancher running cattle on privately owned land. He has zero interest in putting his arse on the line for welfare ranchers that suck taxpayer money and burn forests that don’t belong to them. You can go fight this battle if you want, but most of my family live in Oregon and they will not. They are backwoodsmen, ranchers, farmers, lumberjacks, and so on. I bow to their experience in the matter. I say a battle of this sort won’t be fought over rancher welfare cheaters. I could be wrong. I am carefully reading what everyone says about it, and watched the lady attorney film clip. Why isn’t she in fatigues up in the woods? She in California chillin?

      I wont be trading that away in an emergency so junk silver is my choice for “just in case” money. Easily recognizable and easy to spend in small amounts.

      • Jacknife says:

        I’m not so sure junk silver will be so easy to spend. When the dollar collapses people,I think,will be reluctant to take any type of money including junk silver simply because they will think it has no value. The only people that will take junk silver are the people that know there’s real silver in it. Other than that I agree with what you say. I think buying some silver is very practical. It will, for a time at least, be used for trade. I don’t have the stock a lot of people do because I believe in order to survive, one will have to go mobile. There are so many facets to this coming collapse that people aren’t even considering. STAY AWAY FROM CROWDS.

        • Karl V. says:

          “go mobile”? Using what method(s) and for how long?

          Roads are increasingly monitored with cameras and electronics, while vehicles themselves are increasingly infused with electronic reporting devices. Motorized transport is no way to stay ‘below the radar’.

          Roaming around desolate areas indefinitely will rapidly use up the limited supplies that you can carry, while wearing you down and rendering you vulnerable to potential threats every time you climb a hill or go around a bend. And with highly sophisticated satellite imagery and the proliferation of drones, nomads will not go undetected and will be of high interest as “potential extremists”. As the saying goes, ‘the nail that sticks out gets hammered’.

          The world has gotten small. In the 1800s and even well into the 1900s, all you had to do was move to a remote area, call yourself by a new name, and you could live the rest of your life without incident. In just the past fifty years or so, this has become virtually impossible.

          I do not think there is any real answer to this. Whether you stay put or start making tracks, there is no way to fade into the background. Perhaps for those very rare individuals who are young, in perfect health, and have had Ranger training… oh yes, and who are also computer geniuses and can hack their way through any electronic ID or surveillance problem. In real life, very few people are Jason Bourne. The average person –especially with a family– is not going to be able to disappear. It may be best to blend into a small, rural community; become just another unremarkable yokel out in Pitchville Flats. And even so, all of the data accumulated on you throughout your life will tag along. You need substantial ID and background paperwork to be employed or start a business; to obtain health care; to have a bank account or transfer funds; to rent or own a residence; for motorized transportation; etc. etc. into infinity. Rest assured that even out in Pitchville Flats, the local constabulary will have every shred of your life at their fingertips for easy viewing.

          I repeat: I do not think there is any real answer to this.

      • Stan522 says:

        Brass and lead too….. that will be way more trade-able…. ;-]

        • LOL, definitely brass although not only how you mean it. Brass can be worked at a lower temperature than most metals and might be very popular at some point. I have lots of brass and copper too. They were worked by a lot of people for a long time. I have worked copper and silver in jewelry making. Use Native American techniques. I took classes but a good book would likely be plenty. Plus they are purty while potentially useful one day.

    3. Tucker says:

      More of the same pie-in-the-sky hype that we’ve been hearing from these clueless precious metals dealers for as far back as September 2001.

      I used to make a point to listen to the Tuesday edition of the John Stadtmiller radio show on Republic Broadcasting Network because he would have the now deceased Bob Chapman of the International Forecaster fame and fortune on as his regular guest on that day of the week. Chapman used to constantly assure his listeners that they needed to buy gold (which RBN happened to sell) because ‘by this time next year, gold will be $2,000 an ounce’, blah, blah, blah. RBN’s precious metals sales division, Republic Trading Group – would offer weekly specials on various types of gold coins – and, I will admit, that they did offer very competitive prices as compared to other gold dealers.

      But, here we are – it’s now 2016, and Bob Chapman is no longer with us – and none of his predictions have materialized. And, all we hear is more of the same hype – being repackaged and regurgitated by a new wave of slick talking, opportunistic precious metals sales dealers.

        Help! make America a, #110 and Never Again Nation!

    4. Realtime Prep says:

      The old adage goes, “Whoever has the gold, makes the rules.” In this case, as it stands right now, the WORLD is beholden to one country. It has been positioned this way for nearly half a century, and with that, should this economy fall, there will not be a “SAFE HARBOR” for money. That’s because if this falls all out war will break out. Now you ask why would war break out, because those in power will use all its weapons to ensure that they stay in power. So what does that really mean for the common person residing in that country, not much until the bullets fly or nukes… My recommendation is prep what you can in normal preps but still live your life to the best you can whilst educating your young ones on what is really going on and the best way to help change the course!

      I am always getting my ass chewed out a bit my views on the future.. Luke I have said before, now election is taking place on 2016.. if anything bad happens to Donald Trump, a guaranteed response from the militia is what I am predicting.

          religion = a fashionable substitute for belief

          It was Thomas Jefferson who I paraphrase as saying, “Surely the God of nature can handle a few frank questions and would prefer those who would ask them rather a blind following.”

        Ever see black lives matter take over a federal facility? Not going to happen. Their handlers teach them to burn buildings belonging to their own kind. Black lives will not take over fed buildings; they haven’t enough sense to know who the real culprits are; who are bent on destroying America. And they wont learn truth until it is too late.

          Good points.

          Wasn’t the facility closed and empty. Will be different storming a staffed building. Also the fire station.

          What have they Gained? A place to sleep and point of operations. Can the structures be defended? On High Ground. Somewhat bullet proof against snipers.

          Did anyone sit down and think it all through or was this a spur of moment thing.

          What we see here will affect future OPS.

          • I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: when the militia activates, the feds pee down their legs. You know they do. With the backing of the people and the unpredictability of the engagement, the reason they’re not responding is that the feds don’t know if they’re screw, blued or tattooed. (In reality, its all three…) If this thing goes hot, if the feds roll in there and gun them all down, there are 20 million more that will step up. They HAVE to handle this with kid gloves or FedGov, Inc could be missing important parts when The Real Americans get done with them.

I am an easy going person too. Been burnt too many times. One time before a Militia Leader asked a friend of mine who was into heavy weapons. Yes he had the papers for them. Well the Militia guy told him that if he did not join his team he would take his weapons from him when it went down. Bad Ju JU. So I do want to know who I am signing up with. Then there are those whom I trust and they want no part of what we all discuss here. Like Kulafarmer said, there will be plenty of Feds to fight in our own AO.

      Bullshit! The commissions these wordsmiths are making over the spot price of precious metals is all they are really interested in. They could care less about your “survival”. Metals will continue to fall until the dollar collapses…and that may not happen for some time to come.

Ammo will ALWAYS be a trading commodity, while gold and silver may or may NOT be in demand when the idea of “money” is gone. You can’t eat, drink, shoot, or build with those metals. They will worth something for a short period after the SHTF, but beyond the remaining available stores of products and shelf food, it will be about hunting, gardening, building, and trading product for product. Metal won’t feed you or your family, and I for one, wouldn’t be interested in gold for trade beyond the first three months.

        i already GOT all that stuff….and a whole lot MORE….what am i supposed to do with all those federal reserve notes that are about to become worth less?….or is it worthless?…….i got time….waiting for a GOOD answer…..tic TOC!

        • Them Guys says:

          Where is the logic or common sense to These gold sellers all always use scare tactics that “any moment now folks! Your usa dollars will be less value than toilet paper is now!”…..Then in next breath they tell folks to “so Send Us those soon worthless us dollars so We can send to You Our very valubale now and Soon to sky rocket in value Gold”!?

          It all sounds very hypocritical to me. Obviously they do NOT really believe dollars are soon going to be of zero value or else why do they sell gold only for dollars?

          Maybe if they asked you to Barter/Trade various tangible stuff’s like ammo or foods or vehicles or Land or paid off Homes in exchange for their Gold?…Maybe then it would make their “US Dollars Soon be worthless claims” sound more valid eh?

          Yes I know I am one of them Few here who always asks the questions most folks rather Not hear or read…And it creates hatred within those types because it gets too close for their comfort levels…it gets even worse yet when I post up Links to Documented proofs they cannot refute…Thats when their vile hatred name calls occures.

          However any sane Thinker type person here must have also thought these same questions eh?

          the same would hold true if instaed of Gold sellers claiming us dollars will soon be worthless so buy our gold in exchange for those same dollars now…If it was any of the many Other item ad’s here claimed same thing…Like Wise Foods for example…Most folks here would ask same questions I do if they got told this about storage foods etc.

          Bottom line these seller ads resemble Used Car salesmen quite a bit no?..”Honest! only driven on Sundays and only by an 99 year old granny who never exceeded 25MPH and drove only side streets recently paved!”

            y’all need to open your minds to think up some things that COULD happen where you would WANT to have gold….or MONEY, when the bell rings(is it TODAY?)…instead of knocking holes in people’s plans, open your minds to the possibility that planning is a GOOD thing… what if a muslim leader in the middle east gets hisself beheaded, and a bunch of OTHER muslims didm’t LIKE that…and a war started….and a LOT of americans realized that it was the start of wwIII…THEY know it’s time to get to their “bugout locations…let’s say mine’s in georgia. murders are up 400% within a day or two, but the worl’s still turnin’ to a large degree…then the gubmint shuts down the banks, because there’s a run on cash at the banks, and they ran out of the stuff(couldn’t happen, i know). now you got no way to pay that truck driver to load up your stuff in his semi trailer and head across 8 states to get to georgia….but YOU thought ahead, and you got gold, or silver, or bullets, or food to buy what you need…you only got 2 or 3 days left before the world goes crazy, you think, and you are STILL in so cal big-city, where you are certain to die within a week….so now i’ll stop the what-ifs and ask how many of you reading this missive thought of ways this scenario would actually WORK….and how many thought up all the ways it WOULDN’T work….then y’all had yer minds made up…plans WORK, or they DON’T WORK. …you are going to need OPTIONS, and that’s what gold, or silver or bullets or cases of chilli, will give you…point being you got something to trade when “normal” ways of paying won’t work anymore…i’m sure i could come up with DOZENS of ways a person/family would like to have a “diversified portfolio” to get theirselves out of “TROUBLE”…you better have “STUFF”!….if you have STUFF, you will have options….and options will be crucial to surviving.

        SittingElf- I won’t buy gold right now but I wish I would have bought some in the 80s and 90s. I could have afforded at least a 15K investment in the 300-400 dollar range then. I did pick up some great gold jewelry though, so I don’t feel I missed out completely.
        The value of gold has a deeply rooted cultural basis- which I don’t see disappearing very soon. In India in particular, gold is a woman’s wealth when she enters into marriage. That is why Indian traditional brides are loaded with gold- it represents their status and the wealth of their family. Although many wedding rings are now made of other materials, there is still a lot of gold on people’s fingers. Many women will wear only gold in their ears because of its non-allergenic properties. Much of the jewelry you see on the street may look like silver, but it is white gold. China has said recently that it is encouraging their private sector to invest in gold… i guess they consider that to be a better investment now than apartments in ghost cities. Gold has a future. I don’t think I will ever see it go past 5K in my lifetime unless we have Argentinian type inflation though.
        I see much greater potential for silver than gold at this point. It’s cheap. So cheap it is almost break even for the miners. Silver is just insurance though. Food and water are always going to trump anything else in an emergency

        Yep bullets thats the best its money and protection and can take what your family needs but im sure there will be alot to scrounge up off of the dead troops

      • Noob1989 says:

        I’m glad someone commented on the actual topic of the artical. It’s too bad nobody will get here before they spend their life savings on gold and silver.

        These types of articals make me wonder how deep the corruption which we currently face goes.

        • sixpack says:

          If they spent their life savings on gold and/or silver, THEN THEY SHOULD STILL HAVE THEIR INVESTMENT…only they have it all IN THEIR HANDS, not in the bank waiting to be stolen, the next time the banks decide to give themselves a bonus.
          If you’re wondering how deep the corruption goes, then you probably might want to put some precious metals away for a rainy day.

        • buttcrackofdoom says:

          and why would you spend your “life savings” on gold….why wouldn’t you spend, say, one fourth of your life savings to buy gold, and have the rest in cash under the mattress, or spend a fourth of it on arable land….diversify, people…it gives you options.

    23. Why do articles saying PM’s are going to the moon always quote PM salesmen for the proof? Conflict of interest?

      Yall better go read whats on Oathkeepers before making too much noise,,,
      Just sayin,
      Apparently the Hammonds dont want any of this shit.

        Kula:

        The Hammonds have been informed if the stir any shit they will be sent to prisons far from home and prisons that are terrible to be in.

        So, with that hanging over their heads, what would you say if you were one of the Hammonds?

        I am sure they are praying that in some point in time the BLM is taken to their knees.

        Are you not a 3 (111%) member Kula? Go read their blog. Our convoy was full of those brave men.

      • The Chauffeur says:

        Kula, I think the Hammonds just want to go along to get along…Well, that thinking has emboldened the federals…AND, they and alot of other good folks are suffering for it. The corruption of these federal judges is unreal, coupled with the Agenda21 BS. Those in the west are being run off their land, they want to oust the small farmer / rancher and “restore” the land to the “rightful owners”…sure as hell ain’t gonna be the Indians…:( So, for those in the west and northwest, the time has arrived to stand or fold…

          Do you claim to be a part of the patriot movement? Have the Bundy’s hi jacked you?

          Would that you had 1/2 of those patriots balls……

      Any ham guys on here that can point a newbie in the right direction of 146.520 Mhz?

      Is this the equivalence of VHF marine channel 16 for hailing and distress? Or rather similar to ch 19 on CB?

      Been studying YouTube and internet links to repeaters in my area and learning a lot, curious about long range repeaters now too. It’s amazing how many repeaters are out there and openly available, a Baofeng 5watt radio with antenna upgrade makes for a cheap JIC back up to cell phones.

      • Anonymous says:

        146.52 is sort of a chat channel/meet and switch to another frequency channel. It is a simplex channel with no repeater connection, so a Baofeng or any other handheld will have very limited rang on that channel/mode.
        By “newbie” do you mean new HAM operator, or do you mean new to this list?

      A Close Up Of The Market Ripple Which Stopped Stocks Tumbling At 11:01 am

      “A funny thing happened at 1101ET. Amid the deep plunge in stocks, ‘someone’ suddenly traded an enormous block of e-mini S&P futures which appeared to stall the sell-off (for now). This followed a similar (but smaller) block trade at 1042ET which also extracted all the liquidity from the market momentarily and enabled a brief rally.

      That is twice we have seen a big block followed by a rally in futures…”
