Our forefathers were opposed to the “Free Trade” system. They believed America’s political independence (national security) depended upon industrial independence. That is why the United States had the highest industrial tariff rate in the entire world from 1830 to after World War II. The American System protected domestic labor & industry from super-cheap, foreign labor. Under this policy […]
GOLD IS A PRUDENT INVESTMENT.
Throughout history, gold has been the primary basis of money in international trade. In recent years, China and Russia have been aggressively adding gold to their foreign exchange reserves.

GOLD, the PETRO-DOLLAR & U.S. FOREIGN POLICY
For more than seventy years, the United States dollar has been the reserve currency for the globe. After World War II until quite recently, more than 70% of all foreign exchange transactions and 40% of all world exports have been denominated in dollars. The U.S. dollar will remain the world’s reserve currency as long as OPEC […]
Laws of Nature are from the LÓGOS.
Nature is rationally intelligible because the universe is a rational system. Every aspect of nature is regulated by the immutable laws of the cosmos (CÓSMOS means “order”). It is possible to do science because predictable Laws of Nature can be pre-supposed with mathematical precision.* For example, ASTRO·NÓMY is the law of the stars (NÓMOS means […]

Bureaucrats, royalty, business magnates, and a multitude of private bankers represented 44 countries. The following excerpts are from the first-ever list of the conferees at the “United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference” at […]
Weimar: First DEFLATION Then INFLATION
Today, the entire global economy is deflating. Industrial demand and manufacturing are collapsing worldwide. Once economic deflation is underway, debt snowballs. The Federal Reserve will turn the money spigots wide open to mitigate the paralyzing effects of deflation on the U.S. consumption-economy. For now, the dollar is strong because the yen and the Euro are weakening […]
FEDERAL RESERVE DOUBLE WHAMMY
The currency of the United States was backed by silver and gold for one hundred-eighty years (from 1792 to 1971). During this era of sound money, the rise in the over-all prosperity of the citizenry of the nation was meteoric. The poorest immigrants enjoyed upward economic-mobility. If you are wondering why the living standards for […]
The Federal Reserve is a Cartel.
Three years before Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act, representatives of European and American banking families clandestinely gathered at an exclusive get-away owned by J. Pierpont Morgan and John Davison Rockefeller. After more than a week of intense negotiations, they hammered out the agreement for the “United Reserve System” [today’s “Federal Reserve System”]. FORMATION OF THE GREATEST […]
PLATINUM COINS @ 62% BELOW HIGH
The price of a 1-oz platinum coin is now $860. Platinum is down 62% since its 2008 high of $2,300/oz. Today, one Troy ounce of platinum is selling for about $400 less than one Troy ounce of gold. It is a traditional “buy signal” when platinum is selling at a discount to gold. When we analyze […]
The Contracting U.S. Economy
The strength of the dollar has to do with confidence. When the world perceives the U.S. economy to be weakening, the value of the dollar falls; and gold moves up against the dollar. Gold does well in recessions. During the Great Depression, gold went up 69%. The financial media have been reporting “economic recovery” for the last […]
