The Gold Answer

For month on end, I’ve been suggesting that the melt down in Gold, was probably because of the depreciation of the Chinese Yuan, and that the Chinese were pulling gold lower, to offset the degradation of their money. In other words, if China wants to buy gold ( It does) and its money is falling in value, then it would cost them more to buy the gold. But, what if they pulled gold lower, as their yuan fell? Then they could still buy the same amount of gold, for the same “value” of money.
 
This week I found an article by Jim Rickards, with an interesting twist to my theory, and one that actually fits perfectly with my rants about the monetary reset, the SDR’s and China’s attack on Gold. So, here’s his article, in full as written by Mr. Rickards:

Not Fair

 

I’m in a mood, and it’s not terribly pleasant. This morning I got a phone call, that I figured was coming one day, but I still didn’t want to hear it. A dear friend of mine lost his wife today to cancer.  (Prayers to you buddy)

Communication is Key
 
There’s a lot we could talk about this evening, from trade tariffs, to the Federal Reserve meeting, to Friday’s upcoming jobs report. But I’m going to veer off the path today and mention something very important to any and all of you gun owners out there.
 
Out in Aurora Colorado, on Monday a Homeowner was shot and killed by a police officer. Basically, there was a home intruder, and the armed homeowner shot and killed him. But when the police got there, seeing the armed man, they ended up shooting him, and he died at the hospital.

Boom!

 

I think you’ll find the best part of today’s letter is that it’s going to be pretty short.  I had a nice article all finished up to send for this evening, but I wrote it in my home office, and simply forgot to forward it to my wife’s office.

Venezuela and You

 

There’s a particularly wonderful gal that works in my wife’s office, who does the scheduling for her. My wife owns a small business called “A Better Solution” which revolves around homecare. We’re the people you call when your mom’s got dementia and you don’t want her alone. Or maybe your dad needs a ride to the doctors, or maybe you just got out of the hospital and need a little help with housekeeping and meal prep. Yep, that’s us. ( By  the way, if you’re in need of any services such as that in North Port, Charlotte Harbor, Punta Gorda, etc, give us a call!)

July 4
 
Like most things in History, it isn’t exactly as you think. Let’s look:
 
During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain in 1776 actually occurred on July 2, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring the United States independent from Great Britain's rule. After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it two days later on July 4. A day earlier, John Adams had written to his wife Abigail:

Civil War, Is it Coming?
 
If you didn’t look for it, you wouldn’t know, and frankly, most don’t look for it. No, most people are quite content to go on with their lives, watch their goofy TV shows, post meaningless junk to face book and think about what beer they’ll buy for the weekend games.
 
The world seems almost perfect to those people. They get up, they say hi to their spouses and 2.4 kids, they walk past the white picket fence and get in their leased vehicle, and head to an office, where they spend a few hours working, and a few hours posting to social media or sneaking porn.

Field Day Follow up
 
Last weekend I had mentioned that on Saturday and Sunday, the 23 and 24th, was going to be the “open house” field day for all the ham radio operators across the country. Once a year, people that enjoy playing with short wave radios, go out into “unusual” areas and set up their equipment, to show how they operate, especially during an emergency.
 
I went to our local club, who had set up at the local Red Cross station. But it was a bit more than that, as I didn’t realize the Red Cross had “donated” a small room in their building, for a permanent “short wave emergency communications” station. We’ll chat about that in a minute.

Public Service Announcement
 
As you all know, I like nothing better than to ‘help folks out” and over the years I’ve written a lot about such things as disaster prep, home security, self defense, etc. Over the past several years, I’ve written a couple times about emergency communications, and even had some “ham” operators in studio when I was doing my radio show a couple years back.

This Guy Trump
 
I’ve come through a few Presidents in my life.  But never has one stirred the pot like the present. The people that don’t like him, just don’t “don’t like him” they hate him with a fervor that’s rare to see.
 
Just the other day, Robert De Nero went off the reservation at the 72nd Tony Awards, the annual ceremony that’s supposed to celebrate the best of Broadway. But instead of leading off with praise for the actors and actresses, he felt it necessary to change the script.
