If you want to go to heaven, you had better get busy overthrowing Syria — Paul Craig Roberts

The United States government has been at war for eleven years. The US military destroyed Iraq, leaving the country and millions of lives in ruins and releasing sectarian blood-letting that had been kept in check by the secular Saddam Hussein government.

April 18 Note: At the online retailer Gainesville coins, and everywhere else, the increased premiums above the spot price of gold and silver indicate that the demand for bullion possession, that is, the demand for the metal itself, is greater than the price established in the paper market by manipulation.

The Assault On Gold — Paul Craig Roberts

For Americans, financial and economic Armageddon might be close at hand. The evidence for this conclusion is the concerted effort by the Federal Reserve and its dependent financial institutions to scare people away from gold and silver by driving down their prices. When gold prices hit $1,917.50 an ounce on August 23, 2011, a gain of more than $500 an…
