MR. BUTLER’S SILVER NEWSLETTER
By James Cook

Silver analyst Theodore Butler writes a twice weekly newsletter on precious metals. Only a few people get to read this important newsletter. I’ve been talking to Ted about releasing one full issue for people to read. It’s important for investors to see the scope of his analysis. Mr. Butler has been a paid consultant to my company Investment Rarities for almost 20 years. I can vouch for his absolute integrity and his cautious approach in analyzing silver and gold. He relies on evidence and facts in arriving on his conclusions. He analyzes every known fact about silver and his knowledge of the silver market is unsurpassed. It’s no exaggeration to call him a silver genius. He has agreed to release the following current newsletter which gives insight into the thoroughness of his approach.

HACKING THE UNHACKABLE: THE MISSING CRYPTO-CURRENCY …

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

Yesterday I blogged about JPMorgan’s daliances with crypto-currency, and its plans for a new crypto-currency pegged to the dollar,. in a system that could also handle other real currencies and even securities. And you’ll recall, I crawled out to the end of the twig of trademark High Octane Speculation once again, and probably managed to crawl off the twig as well. But just in case you missed it, here is that speculation:

Portions of the yield curve are once again inverted all the way out to 7 years.

The Pension Crisis is Starting to Explode

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

At the current federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, working 40 hours per week, 52 weeks per year, yields an annual income of only $15,080. This is below the annual poverty line. It also reflects something that most people are unaware of — in Illinois, there are more than 19,000 retired teachers who get OVER $100,000 per year in their pension. According to the latest data, nearly 1.5 in ten federal employees are eligible to retire RIGHT NOW, and in five years the number will hit three in 10 or about 30%. The Housing and Urban Development Department in the federal government has the highest rate of employees eligible to retire right now of any major agency in government, which stands at a shocking 24%.

That’s just a fancy way of saying it can’t be changed or destroyed.

Aristotle listed four characteristics of sound money: it must be durable, portable, divisible, and have intrinsic value. Gold possesses all of these characteristics, which is why gold has served as money for thousands of years.

GLOBAL RESET NEWS: This is WHY Central Banks Are Now HOARDING GOLD

from SGTreport:

Author Ken Schortgen joins me to discuss the coming global monetary reset which, as Ken explains, cannot be avoided. Ken notes that central banks around the world are now buying gold in volumes not seen since 1971, and the reason is likely because massive changes are coming to the global banking system on March 31st.

STOP ONLINE CONSPIRACY THEORISTS [Before They Break Democracy]

from SGTreport:

This article from real news source ‘The Guardian’ is priceless, I suggest you read it and consider the ramifications of conflating important subjects like central banking, pedophilia and satanism with aliens and “clandestine lizard overlords”. It’s clear the establishment is in total panic because they are losing the war for minds in the electronic public square. Chris Duane joins me to discuss that and more.
