In the increasingly likely event that fiat currencies will lose all function as money, measured in them the gold price will trend to infinity. It is now difficult to see how the dollar can avoid this outcome, or something close to it. That being the case, in this context a price move for gold above $2000 per ounce is an insignificant event, except for those trapped with short positions, which brings us to the chaos on the Comex futures market. Figure 2 shows the position in US gold futures markets on 28 July (the last Commitment of Traders information available) with the spread positions removed.
I am not trying to encourage anyone to buy precious metals. I am trying to educate people about the impending collapse of fiat currencies. For those who have put their wealth into paper gold, I suggest you get what money you can before those contracts become worthless.
Faced with a virus that has killed about one-third as many people as the normal, seasonal flu virus in 2018, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has endorsed a partial shutdown of the economy resulting in millions tossed into the despair of unemployment [1/3 of America’s workforce is now unemployed due to this hyperbolized virus]. Then he arbitrarily shut down bars because massively increased testing showed more people have been exposed to the virus. And he mandated that people wear face masks. Neither shutting down bars (instead of restaurants or Walmarts) nor forcing people to wear masks will have any effect on the progression of the virus through society. But at least he looks like he’s doing “something.”
We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes. The virus is real, but the government reaction is political and totalitarian. As it falls apart, will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?
Dr. Paul gave the best assessment of this so-called pandemic when he said, “We are facing the greatest assault against our civil liberties in our lifetimes.” That is indeed the bottom line. Every other argument about or aspect of this “crisis” pales in comparison to the reality that “we are facing the greatest assault against our civil liberties in our lifetimes.”
In addition, Dr. Paul asked the most significant question of the hour when he asked, “Will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?” Well, if they will, they need to get started—QUICKLY.
Every shutdown; every closure; every mask mandate; every limitation of crowd size; every forced temperature test; every travel restriction; every forced corona test; every person who loses their job for personal speech that contradicts the official narrative; every act of social media censorship; every church that stops assembling; every attempt to disrupt your ability to make a living, shop, bank, worship, recreate, socialize or engage in free enterprise is a blatant assault against your Liberty.
Mark it down: These are not mere inconveniences. These are deliberate, disgusting, destructive, draconian, demonic and damnable attacks against your Liberty. How long are you going to tolerate it?
This will not end until the American people themselves determine to end it. And if we don’t end it soon, it will be too late to end it.
This corona “crisis” is not about health; it is about control. It is about the abolishment of a free society and the introduction of an enslaved society. The planners of this attack counted on Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx and their accomplices in government and the media to instill sufficient fear into the hearts of the American people so as to cause them to give up essential Liberty in order to stay safe.
Benjamin Franklin saw this coming over 200 years ago when he said, “They that would give up essential liberty for a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
The so-called new normal is nothing more than the old totalitarianism.
Anyone who doesn’t realize that total surveillance, control and enslavement are where this is heading isn’t paying attention.
We are witnessing a vicious assault by enemies of all that is good, and our president is having to act in ways unprecedented in decades, maybe centuries.
The biblical nature of good versus evil cannot be discounted as we examine what is happening on the streets of America.
It’s Marxism in the form of antifa and the Black Lives Matter movement versus our very capable and very underappreciated law enforcement professionals, the vast majority of whom are fighting to provide us safe and secure homes, streets and communities.
When the destiny of the United States is at stake, and it is, the very future of the entire world is threatened.
As Christians, shouldn’t we act? We recognize that divine Providence is the ultimate judge of our destiny. Achieving our destiny as a freedom-loving nation, Providence compels us to do our part in our communities.
It encourages us in this battle against the forces of evil to face our fears head-on. No enemy on earth is stronger than the united forces of God-fearing, freedom-loving people.
We can no longer pretend that these dark forces are going to go away by mere prayer alone. Prayers matter, but action is required.
This action is needed at the local, state and federal levels. Action is also required in the economic, media, clerical and ecclesiastical realms.
Decide how you can act within your abilities. Stand up and state your beliefs. Be proud of who you are and what you stand for. And face, head-on, those community “leaders” who are willing to allow dark forces to go beyond peaceful protests and destroy and violate your safety and security.
Churches and houses of worship must return to normal. We invite everyone of goodwill to not shirk their responsibilities and instead act in a fraternal fashion. If for no other reason or with no other ability, act in a spirit of charity.
We cannot disrespect or disregard natural law along with our own religious liberties and freedoms.
I am witnessing elderly people lose their connection to all that is good in their lives: connections to their faith, their families and their individual freedoms, especially the simple act of attending church, something they’ve been doing for decades.
Let us not be intimidated or fear those who cry out that we are in the minority; we are not.
Good is always more powerful and will prevail over evil.
However, evil will succeed for a time when good people are divided from each other and their personal lives — children away from their teachers, preachers from their congregations, customers from their local businesses.
America will never give in to evil. Americans work together to solve problems.
We do not and should not ever allow anarchy and the evil forces behind it to operate on any street in our nation.
No one should have to fear for their very life because some dark, disturbed force is challenged by the very essence of what America stands for.
We are “one nation under God” and it is our individual liberties that make us strong, not liberties given to our government. Our government has no liberty unless and until “we the people” say so.
God bless America and let’s stand by everything that was and is good in our lives, in our communities and in our country.
Otherwise, America as the true North Star for humanity will cease to exist as we know it.
