Electronic Gold: The Deep State’s Corrupt Threat to Human Prosperity and Freedom

Stewart Dougherty returns with unique insight into the powerful Deep State forces behind the relentless manipulation of gold and silver. He also presents a searing look at Jim Rickards’ deceptive role as the Deep State’s grifter.

“There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate.” Final blog entry by Daphne Caruana Galizia, 53, renowned Maltese investigative reporter who specialized in exposing state corruption; posted on 16 October 2017, one day before she and her vehicle were blown to bits by a car bomb in Bidnija, Malta

In 2011, gold pulled a “Bitcoin” before anyone even knew what Bitcoin was: its price went vertical to $1,900 per ounce. Inflation-adjusted, the price was still far below its 1980 all-time high, and from all indications, it was going to keep heading north toward its free market print.

In surging, gold blurted out the Deep State Central Planners’ strategy for dealing with the Great Financial Crisis: the hyperinflation of bond, equities and real estate prices via the hyperinflation of both official and totally clandestine, off-the-books money supply, in order to create the hyperinflation of tax revenues desperately required by the government to forestall its fiscal collapse. Gold’s exposure of the Deep State Central Planners’ secret strategy was absolutely unacceptable to them, and had to be stopped.

Worse, gold’s price breakout interfered with the continuation of the largest and most profitable financial crime in history: gold price manipulation. As we have outlined in previous articles, including “Gold and Silver Price Manipulation: The Biggest Financial Crime in History,” from its commencement in 1980, this crime has netted its perpetrators more than $1 trillion in criminal, Mafia-style profits. The epic scale of this crime is exactly why it continues unabated to this day. (While the gold price rigging crime is virtually identical to the manipulation of silver prices, in the interests of brevity, we will solely focus on gold in this article.)

The weapon used in the gold price manipulation crime is paper, or, better stated, electronic gold in five distinct forms: gold futures; gold options on futures; bullion-bank controlled, deliberately audit-proof gold ETFs; gold EFPs (Exchanges for Physical); and the equities of bullion bank-controlled major mining companies. (The major miners serve the bullion banks, not their shareholders, and have actively participated in gold’s price destruction for years, starting with the “hedging” campaign that handed guaranteed profits to the banks and pitiful share prices to the stakeholders.)

These electronic (in other words, non-physical and unreal) gold products are used by Deep State financial insiders to misdirect funds intended by investors to flow into gold, away from gold. Those who “invest” in electronic gold are, in fact, aiding and abetting the exact financial criminals who are stealing from them. The Deep State financial elite is laughing itself sick that suckers still fall for the electronic gold scam nearly four decades after they first hatched it and after already having stolen $1 trillion from their marks. Proof that many people in our world never learn.

Simplified, the gold price rigging scam works by the orchestrators allowing natural market forces to increase the price in roughly $50 – 100 increments, whereupon they unleash massive, synchronized, simultaneous, shock-and-awe-style naked short sales, unbacked by any physical gold they actually own, that take the price right back down by $50 to $100 in a matter of minutes to a few days. This forces the price-attacked longs to dump their losing positions, enabling the shorts to cover at an illegal profit. Each such large-scale price raid produces hundreds of millions of dollars in profits for the criminal orchestrators, not just from the futures market, but from the companion options, swaps and equities markets, all of which act in unison, and in a price-predictable up or down manner. This identical wash, rinse, repeat cycle has occurred literally hundreds of times over the past 38 years, with no serious investigations or prosecutions whatsoever in that this is official, state-sponsored, for-profit corruption.

For any one of hundreds of reasons, gold should be in a raging bull market at this time. Given that its price remains lackluster and greatly disappointing, rich gallows humor has emerged as a form of therapy for those attempting to deal with the irrationality of it all.

One gallows joke that made the rounds was that if nuclear war were declared, gold’s price would go down and the DJIA would go up. While this was a funny take on the absurdity of the situation, it seemed a bit far-fetched.

In an October 20, 2017 podcast interview, Mr. James Rickards, a leading public commentator on gold, stated that he had spent the previous day in an extremely exclusive national intelligence planning session overseen by CIA Director Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster. Rickards reported that Pompeo told him, categorically, that military action will be taken against North Korea within 5 months, or by March 20, 2018. Rickards also reported that the group was informed that the assassination of Kim Jong Un is one U.S. military option officially on the table.

In the trading days after Mr. Rickards made that public announcement, the price of gold declined and the DJIA hit record highs.

The 2008 Collapse Will Continue Without More QE

Craig “Turd Ferguson” Hemke invited me onto this Thursday A2A podcast show last Thursday.  As usual, Turd does a great job of blending irreverent humor and truthseeking in order to flush out cutting-edge insight on the issues affecting our markets.  In this episode we discuss:

  • The history of DeutscheBank and how this is all still relevant today
  • Jim Rickards and his role as a “spokesperson” for gold
  • The relative safety of working with different custodians and online clearing firms
  • The benefits of owning shares in streaming/royalty companies
  • And, as usual, a whole lot more

You can hear our conversation and the excellent questions asked by the members of Turdville here:   A2A with Dave Kranzler of Investment Research Dynamics

I Have Good Company With My View That Rickards Is Full Of B.S.

All this says to me that people who are perceived as being credible keep circulating these absolutely preposterous myths. But if people want to believe the fairly tale that the United States still has all its gold safely vaulted in places like New York and Fort Knox, they are telling you that this is how all this synthetic gold has in fact been created.

That quote and the one below is from Hong Kong-based fund manager, William Kaye on King World News (LINK).

The U.S. government is essentially communicating to people through its agents that we still have all that gold in our vaults and to prove it, here is the serial number.  So, if necessary, just show up with this piece of paper and we will deliver the gold.

I have said all along that Rickards is a front for the Government and is trying to sell the idea of using the IMF SDR to the world as a reserve currency replacement for the dollar.   In other words, the elitist insiders high up in Government know that the dollar’s days are numbered.   But the dollar is by far the highest percentage component of the SDR  (42%). This remedy would extend the ability of the U.S. to kick  the can of its economic demise down the road.  Too bad for the U.S. that the IMF SDR will not be the dollar replacement.

My Easy Trade idea is still valid.  It’s bounced nicely from its low on Friday and we’ve made a nice gain in the fund from taking delivery of the stock from the puts I shorted Friday morning.  For anyone who buys the report, I will still offer free options trading advice/strategies if you email me after you’ve read the report:   Easy Trade Idea.
