The Gold War Has Begun!

Brace yourself for the impending gold shortage. Gold shortage? Yes. With the launch of a flurry of dedicated gold ETF’s last year, total ETF holdings of the barbaric relic, now exceed total world production. South Africa suffered its steepest decline in gold production since 1901, falling 14%, to a mere 232tons. It now ranks only third in global production of the yellow metal, after China and the US. Severe electricity rationing, a shortage of skilled workers,and more stringent mine safety regulations have been blamed.

Gold Shortage Looms

From Goldprice.org

The world is running low on gold and here’s more reasons why.

As the standard of living in China and India increases more and more people there will be demanding gold. As an example, the Chinese middle class has been increasing and although is a tiny percentage of the overall Chinese population it is still bigger than the entire population of the US now. The Chinese government is actively encouraging their population to buy gold. This is a lot of gold demand in China alone. The same is happening in India and their demand for gold is continuing to increase.

This is on top of the extra demand by cautious and impatient investors who are not getting the results they expect from bonds and investments.

The world’s biggest gold miner, Barrick Gold has noted that finding more and more viable gold deposits is becoming harder. The chart above shows how gold deposit discoveries are rapidly declining and we know what that means. The value of gold, quite apart from the decreasing dollar, is going to go up as demand outstrips supply.

The gold war has begun

You may be asking yourself, did the central banks ever control the gold market? Yes, indeed they did!

Clinton Foundation Celebrity Video

We may not agree with ‘Clintonian’ politics, but funny is funny: In a new Web video for the 10th anniversary of the Clinton Foundation, a coterie of stars performs as the foundation’s airheaded “Celebrity Division.” Ben Stiller leads an unproductive fundraising brainstorming session with Matt Damon, Sean Penn, Kristen Wiig, Jack Black, Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.  And a surprise from Kevin Spacy. Enjoy!  > Source: FunnyOrDie.com


Codex Alimentarius: Be Afraid, Very Afraid!

We first alerted readers of  the Las Vegas Tribune in 2005  of the insidious Codex that threatens our food and health freedoms.  We updated our concerns in a 2007 edition of The Catalyst! newsletter :

See Supplements Under Attack and FDA has Blood On Its Hands

Now filmmaker Kevin P. Miller examines the possibilities of a future where international government bureaucracies like the WTO and Codex Alimentarius — working in league with multinational corporations — control the food and medicine supply worldwide.

Is There Really Any Gold Left in Fort Knox?

In 2004 we wrote a series of articles in the Las Vegas Tribune questioning whether the world’s central banks were cooking their books regarding the amount of gold they held and why.* Much of our story told of the efforts of GATA, Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, to expose the resultant gold-price manipulation that was occurring at the highest levels of the financial food chain.

*See: Where’s the Gold? and A Conspiracy of Gold

Now the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee and its secretary/treasurer figure heavily in a new edition of the television program “Brad Meltzer’s Decoded,” which examines the question of whether the U.S. government really still has any gold in the vault at Fort Knox, Kentucky. The program, to be broadcast on the History Channel, stresses the secrecy and unaccountability of the government in regard to anything related to gold.  Enjoy it here now.
