So many were saying there was no shortage of silver

Todays brainwashing: GMO's are safe

News like this tells me 'Confidence' in the system

is nearing a tipping point. There are bond sell-offs, hedge fund managers bailing and buying farmland. Doctors retiring in droves, 'Puts' being made (stockmarket bets made that certain stocks will fall), the Cyprus incident, and Australia just doubled the tax on their retirement accounts. We have the dramatic rise in Bitcoin, huge upswing in precious metals sales, small 'capital controls' being enacted, grumblings in the news about nationalizing 401Ks, and capping the 'Romney-sized' accounts. All signs lead to collapse and/or at the very least Government Skullduggery approaching.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

Comex Gold Inventories Collapse By Largest Amount Ever On Record


Over the last 90 days without any announcement, stocks of gold held at Comex warehouses plunged by the largest figure ever on record during a single quarter since eligible record keeping began in 2001.

Total drainage of physical inventories reached nearly 2 million oz.’s of gold, which at today’s prices represent roughly $3,000,000,000 dollars.
According to chart sage Nick Laird, this data indicates that, “Eligible stocks which are owned in LBMA/Comex good delivery form are being drawn down—which means they are being removed from the warehouses. As to how and why they are [being] removed, that is a mystery. [Up until now], eligible stocks were on the continual increase throughout the bull market. Now that trend has changed.”

Where does the US mint get all the silver to mint those eagles? Does it come from mines or is some of it recycled? Just curious.

The price is driven by the paper silver market. BUY, BUY, BUY.
