All that glitters is not green(backs)-Useful survival resources
Smart parents teach their children that they can't buy things
unless they have the money to pay for them. It's a simple enough lesson:
"This toy costs $5, and you've only saved $3, Susie. Therefore, you can't
buy the toy until you've saved two more dollars."
Susie doesn't have the ability to print money that the Federal government does.
When the Federal government wants more greenbacks to shove into the economy, it
doesn't start looking for ways to save, it looks for ways to make money —
literally create money — and just turns on the printing presses. When
governments print money to excess — of course, today it's just digitally
"depositing" money rather than physically printing it — and therefore
devalue the very money a government is printing, it causes the massive price
increases like you see today.
scenarios occurred in Rome between 218 and 268 A.D. and in France in the 1780s
after their currencies were debased. Even Thomas Jefferson warned of impending
disaster when he said, "I believe banking institutions are more dangerous
to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow
private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then
by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks]
will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless
on the continent their fathers conquered..."
does a depreciating or crashing currency do? It extinguishes U.S. government
debt while at the same time reducing the value of the trillions of dollars held
by countries around the world. Beware all who sleep!
better description of U.S. fiat money is a "Ponzi scheme." Born in
1882, Charles Ponzi was a native Italian who immigrated to America when he was
21, spent time in a Canadian prison for forging a check, then returned to
America and began a financial enterprise that would make his name synonymous
1919, Ponzi founded an entity called the Securities Exchange Company in Boston.
He promised surreal rates of return to investors in SEC — 50 percent in 45 to
90 days, some sources say. Soon, people were literally lining up to deposit
money in Ponzi's enterprise.
Ponzi was selling (long-forgotten things called "postage coupons")
wasn't important. What was important was his discovery of the pyramid scheme,
in which money from new investors pays off the original investors of the
scheme. The problem with a Ponzi — or pyramid — scheme is that in order to keep
functioning, there has to be an ever-increasing number of new investors. That
requirement increases exponentially so that Ponzi schemes eventually require
more investors than there are people on Earth. For a while, the original
investors do in fact earn phenomenal returns, but a Ponzi scheme's demise is
preordained. A Ponzi scheme in fact brought down the Albanian government in
1997, in what is called the Lottery Uprising.
at the drawbacks of the Ponzi scheme, it becomes obvious… like Ponzi profits,
all so-called government expenditures are nothing more than fiat, and any
pretended interest is, if anything, only more fiat. If we could bring back the
alchemists of old who dreamed of the magic of turning quicksilver into gold,
they would be jubilant at the mass delusion.
all so simple, dear reader. Debt is only a cover term for fiat Ponzi. There has
never at any time since the beginning of the Federal Reserve System in 1913
been any intention to pay anybody anything of substance. All that we ever get
on our paper money is the promise to pay.
will pieces of paper stop being accepted for food, service and substance?
Modern money came from nothing and is going to nothing. This will be the
flashpoint for gold. Financial speculation and widespread growth of gambling
casinos always rise along with a speed-up in the money-printing presses.
Our philosophy — looking for extremes

when the public gets most pessimistic, contrarians are thinking this very
negative sentiment is a definite sign of the bottom and time to buy. This is
the proverbial "blood in the streets" syndrome. It is called contrary
opinion, and it is a very real and valuable system of market timing.

makers. Almost anybody can see that absolute values in America are virtually
obsolete. Financial imbalances and debt creation have grown to impossible

little more than a hallucination to believe the government can control any

P.S. — The term "good as gold" exists for a reason. But none of the elected class will tell the truth: that the United States government caused the decline of its own currency... which is why I do recommend you read this report I put together so that your retirement savings won't get caught up in the precipitous decline. I believe it can help you prepare for the worst financial threats and deceptions America now faces.

34 Supplies for Fixing Things After SHTF
Besides our intelligence and having opposing thumbs, what sets
us humans apart from the animal kingdom is that we can use tools. I’m not just
talking about a hammer and screwdriver here; pretty much everything we use to
perform everyday tasks can be considered a tool, from the refrigerator we open
to get milk, to the car we drive to get to work.
There’s just one problem with all these tools… they can break.
Some tools seem like they're designed to break so that you have to buy another,
while others look like they’re built to last forever, but break anyway.
I’ve got a construction hatchet that I’ve replaced the wood
handle on at least a half a dozen times, from all the times I’ve used it wrong
and broken it. It looked like it was strong enough, but those hickory handles
