Gold: Is this 1980 All Over Again? Not Even Close

Mac Slavo
Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Over the last half decade or so, as the price of gold and silver have steadily risen, financial experts, advisers and pundits have often argued that gold is a bubble. They said it in the spring of 2008, as gold approached $900 per ounce. Likewise, as gold surpassed its nominal 1980′s high and went above $1000, those same analysts were screaming sell recommendations. To this day, with gold nearing $2000,  they are still all marching to the same tune.

Headlines for the last three years have been heavily weighted against gold, with every price spike being met with bubble talk. When George Soros said in January of 2010 that gold was the ultimate bubble, the media pounced on it as evidence that precious metals were through. Of course, Soros had been acquiring millions of dollars worth of gold assets (and continues to do so today). His message was completely misconstrued. Gold, like any other asset that involves a buying frenzy, will eventually become a bubble. And given the reasons for why people buy gold – inflation protection and as a hedge against the loss of confidence in government stability – we can be fairly certain that gold and precious metals in general will eventually reach exorbitant levels and “pop.”

But, as Daniel Ameduri of Future Money Trends points out in the following micro-documentary, we’re nowhere near bubble territory yet.

It’s important to note that 1980 was the end of the gold run that started when Nixon closed the gold window in 1971. That was roughly a ten year run up in the price from $35 to over $800 per ounce.

This, however, isn’t 1980. Our debt-to-GDP ratio this morning hit 101% and is going much higherWe’ve added more federal debt in the last 7 months of 2011 than all of the years from 1776 to 1980 combined. The policy of our government is not to curb inflation is it was in 1980, but rather, to stimulate it, as evidenced by 0% fed funds rates (in the 1980′s it was in the teens!) and the massive monetary printing over the last few years.

1980, even though the end of the recessionary environment was still a couple years away, is when the people felt confident that crisis of the past decade was coming to a close.

If you feel like our current economic, financial, monetary, and social crises are wrapping up, then by all means sell your gold.

But we urge you to consider what Future Money Trends has to say about it before you do.

Micro Documentary: Gold 1980 Vs. Today

Despite what the experts in the media and on television tell us, there is no bubble in gold – not yet, at least.

You see, bubbles require emotionally driven buying (just like bubble pops require emotionally driven panic selling). When all of those family members, neighbors and acquaintances you know who still reject the notion that our economic and social paradigms are shifting; when they start buying gold and silver at rapidly rising premiums and prices (as opposed to their current selling of precious metals to rip off outfits that include  ’We Buy Gold’ shops) and when they all become experts on inflation, safe haven assets, and gold investing, then it’s a bubble.

Look around. We’re not even close.

Gold is going up so long as the governments of the world keep printing money and so long as the public’s confidence continue to deteriorate.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
