The People Have the Power

by Craig Hemke, Sprott Money:

There are many of us “keyboard warriors” who believe that the current fractional reserve and digital derivative pricing scheme is unfair and rife with fraud. There are also a handful of system apologists who claim that the current scheme is fair and equitable and that silver is abundant. Well, there’s one way to find out. Let’s do this.

If you regularly read these weekly columns, then you’ll recall this post from last week. If not, please read it now before you continue: A Time to Fight Back 

In summary, it’s time to get to The Truth, and we the people have to power to uncover it. The pricing scheme has endured for decades, and the alchemy that drives it has left in its wake a system where no one knows for certain how much physical gold and silver exists with clear, undisputed title. Oh sure, if you own and hold physical metal, there’s no dispute at all. However, if you hold a futures contract, an unallocated account, or an ETF, all you hold is price exposure to an overleveraged system. This leaves you with an incalculable counterparty risk that you may not have even considered before today.

by Sean Moran, Breitbart:

The U.S. Census Bureau released its 2020 census report Monday, which found that many states across the east coast and the midwest will lose congressional seats, while many seats in the south, such as Texas, and the West will gain seats in the House of Representatives.

Six states gained new seats in the House, including:

Police Problems? Embrace Liberty!

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

Many Americans saw former policeman Derek Chauvin’s conviction on all counts last week as affirming the principle that no one is above the law. Many others were concerned that the jury was scared that anything less than a full conviction would result in riots, and even violence against themselves and their families.

Was the jury’s verdict influenced by politicians and media figures who were calling for the jury to deliver the “right” verdict? Attempts to intimidate juries are just as offensive to the rule of law as suggestions that George Floyd’s criminal record somehow meant his rights were not important.

Vaccine passports? EU to reopen to American tourists this summer, but travelers must have proof of ‘APPROVED’ jabs, Brussels says

from RT:

Americans will be able to travel to the EU this summer when the bloc’s nations reopen for tourism, the head of the European Commission has said – but only those who show proof of vaccination with an “approved” jab will be let in.

In what seems to be an indication of how lives will never return to pre-pandemic norms, the European Commission president on Sunday suggested that some sort of Covid-19 vaccination certificates will indeed be necessary for would-be travelers from the US.

“All 27 member states will accept, unconditionally, all those who are vaccinated with vaccines that are approved by EMA,” Ursula von der Leyen told the New York Times.

WATCH: Thousands Upon Thousands Rally Against Lockdown, Vax Passes in London

by James Delingpole, Breitbart:

This is the event that the BBC and the rest of the legacy media tried to airbrush out of history: thousands upon thousands of people marching through central London in protest over lockdown and the imminent threat of vaccine passports.

It was by some margin the biggest rally held so far in the UK against the government’s draconian Chinese coronavirus restrictions. While the MSM put a low estimate on the numbers — 10,000, according to Reuters — others claim the turnout was considerably higher.

Why I’m Not Getting the Vaccine

by Dan Gelernter, AM Greatness:

Whether we’re allowed to live by the decisions we reach freely within our rights as citizens—even when the decision may be wrong—is the ultimate test of whether we are free or slaves.

If you’re in a high-risk group and you’d like to get the vaccine, go right ahead. I’m not a doctor and I have no wish to advise anyone in the matter—but, equally, I resent people throwing unsolicited advice at me.

SIGNS, SIGNS, EVERYWHERE SIGNS

by Jim Quinn, The Burning Platform:

“Fools, as it has long been said, are indeed separated, soon or eventually, from their money. So, alas, are those who, responding to a general mood of optimism, are captured by a sense of their own financial acumen. Thus it has been for centuries; thus in the long future it will also be.” ― John Kenneth Galbraith, A Short History of Financial Euphoria

How to Starve Big Tech

by Jim Daws, American Thinker:

It’s not an exaggeration to say that if America remains on her current trajectory, she will be unrecognizable in another generation. Lady Liberty will be replaced by a snarling leftist with a blue crew-cut.

We’ve arrived at a tipping point where the foundational beliefs that made our way of life possible are under relentless siege by a radical, Marxist ideology that holds our values, traditions and culture in utter contempt. Today, the institutions of family, church, education, free enterprise, and self-government are mere remnants of their former glory. The Left’s long march through our institutions is nearing its dystopian destination, which we are treated to on these pages daily.

Maturity Is Discovering How Everything You Believe Is A Lie

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

You get your first taste of it when you’re little. You find your Christmas presents in your parents’ closet in early December, or maybe some older kid just tells you that Santa Claus isn’t real.

What the hell? What the hell is this? Some freaky psyop run by your parents, just for kicks? And all the other parents are in on it too? And Hollywood? All those movies and TV specials about Santa were just lies? How far does this go?

What is this strange reality?
