Quote – Norm Franz on Gold, Silver and Debt

Norm Franz takes some quality time out to pose for a photo

Norm Franz – Author and great quotation composer

“Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants – but debt is the money of slaves “

  • Norm Franz (Author, 2001)

Norm Franz is an author and concerned about money. He is also concerned about religion and scriptures which are not so applicable to me. But what I can say is that this quote is bang on! It is a masterful quote. It is lifted from his book Money and Wealth in the New Millennium (2001).

A much simpler version of the phrase existed for hundreds (if not thousands) of years before in the form of “Gold is the money of Kings”.

By buying Gold you can start to get out of our debt based monetary system…Before it collapses…Which it only a matter of time now…

I think that says it all.

No Way Out for the Federal Reserve

No Way out for the Federal Reserve

No Way out for the Federal Reserve

There is no way-out of here for the Federal Reserve now.

After so much talk of taper (“Taper-Talk”) the Fed finally didn’t follow-through. Why not? Because they cannot. That should be clear to anyone. There is not surprise here.

This is just talk. Schmoozing…Jive-talk…Rhetoric..Lies?

This is the clearest sign yet that Bernanke’s policies have failed. The rollback decision. He knows what’s coming and does not want to be around when it hits – and thus he is resigning (read – “get the hell out of Dodge!”) at end of year.

It is very, very, very simple to understand:

  • Interest rates MUST stay low
  • If not the amount of boring of US Government will bankrupt USA (it is already technically bankrupt)
  • So print money, buy bonds, keep rates low

There is a HUGE problem with this approach – They will either want to stop or be made to stop sometime:

  • They will be made to stop by other countries abandoning “incredible” US dollar (quite simply no longer sound money)
  • They will want to stop to try to restore credibility to the USD currency (not possible when printing 85 Billion USD per month – 1 Trillion USD per year)

When they stop (or the printing press is taken off them) the interest rates will rise.

The house of cards will fall.

Quote – JP Morgan on Gold

JP Morgan - Showing uus all that tings don't really change...

JP Morgan himself. Any relation to Cap’n Morgan?

“Gold is Money. Everything Else is Credit”

  • JP Morgan (New York Banker, December 18 and 19 1912)

So there you have it. Straight from the horses mouth.

And what is really interesting here is how this quote came about. This was not some simple quip on the street, or over a glass of wine too many after dinner impressing friends. No Siree!

This my little chums, was delivered straight from the horses mouth to congress when he was being cross-examined by a “special committee” for bank fixing which was going on back then! Or, in their words Appointed for the Purpose of Investigating an Alleged Money Trust in”Wall Street.”

You see back then there was a strong suspicion that the bankers were colluding (Noh say it aint so! Gasp, shock, horror. Not like LIBOR or something?!), and this was called the “Money Trust”. This was before the Federal Reserve, but about the time of the Jekyll Island stuff (see here).

For those interested, I have a transcription of said JP Morgans Testimony right here before the “Bank and Currency Committee of the House of Representatives”. I invite you to notice that Jamey Dimon is much more smug these days (did you know that he is a bubble? So he is not just making the bubbles, he actually is a bubble himself ;.).

Another little bit of bunk – Mr Morgan was almost 75 years young when the Titanic sank. He had his own private suite and promenade deck on the Titanic. He was supposed to join her for her maiden voyage but cancelled last minute, sparing him the fate of many of his other millionaires buddies.

So there you go geezer – “Plus ça change, …” and all that… Things have not changed one bit…

Video – The Creature from Jekyll Island (G. Edward Griffin)

This is a must watch video. If you really want to know how we got here, in the financial mess that we are in today, then you need to watch this video and understand exactly how we got here.

The Federal Reserve System is the greatest scam of all history – Because it is NOT:

  • Federal
  • a Reserve (there are no Financial Reserves)
  • a System (it is New York based – with the illusion of National presence)

Mr Griffin sites seven reasons why the Federal Reserve System shoul be abolished:

  • It is incapable of acheiving it’s stated objectives
  • It is a Cartel – Operating against the public interest
  • It is the Supreme instrument of Usery
  • It generates our most unfair tax
  • It encourages war
  • It destabilises the economy
  • It is an instrument of Totaliterianism

It’s long weighing in at 105 minutes – but Mr Griffin is a master public speaker, a diligent researcher, and above all it is highly entertaining piece that everyone should hear.

And know this – You can watch/listen to this video much quicker than it took Mr Griffin the years of painstaking research, or ever to read his weighty tome as the same (which is a MUST read, btw ;-)).

Split it into two parts if you must, or more, but make sure you understand all that is in this great, great lecture.

A closing thougt from Mr Griffin:

Federal Reserve System does not need to be audited…  It needs to be abolished!

 

I hear you Mr Griffin!

UBS to Pay Over $450 Million to Settle Libor Probe

UBS are getting hammered (as they should be):

“ZURICH–UBS AG (UBS) is close to a settlement with U.S. and U.K. authorities and is expected pay more than $450 million over claims that some of its employees reported false Libor rates to boost the bank’s profit, the New York Times reported Sunday, citing anonymous officials briefed on the matter.

If the Zurich-based bank agrees to the deals with various authorities, the collective penalties would yield the largest total fine to date related to the rate-rigging inquiry and would increase the likelihood that other financial institutions would face stiff penalties, it reported.

UBS wasn’t immediately available to comment on the report.

Authorities dealt their first blow in the rate-rigging case in June, when U.K. bank Barclays Plc (BARC.LN) agreed to a $450 million settlement.

U.S. officials are hoping to complete a deal with UBS by the middle of the month, according to officials briefed on the matter, the paper reported.”
