    I think it would be useful to mention silver where appropriate too. Personally, I far prefer silver to gold. I'd only ever wear silver jewellery, never gold. But I've heard that silver is more volatile an investment. It has the potential to make you a fortune if that's your aim, whereas gold is more suited to protecting your savings. So I chose gold. Perhaps I'll look into silver at some point.

    What you say is true. I'll be purchasing about five ounces of gold as soon as the Yule season passes and my finances are back in order. One thing that is good about silver is that you can invest a smaller amount of money. With gold, it is very difficult to buy small quantities without a huge markup. Five ounces is generally the smallest amount you can get without huge surcharges, and at $700-$800 an ounce right now, that's a good chunk of change.

    A short documentary about the suppression of gold's real value:

    The World’s Central Banks Are Buying Gold At The FASTEST PACE In 6 years!


    The central banks of the world have been buying up gold at the fastest rate in 6 years. This is flashing warning signs for the future of the United States dollar.



    Central banks (the Federal Reserve) and foreign governments hold literally trillions of dollars of reserves which they traditionally acquire by buying U.S. government debt. To big institutions and banks, U.S. government debt is considered as an equivalent to cash and they use it as a form of money. U.S. debt is, therefore, extremely liquid. In fact, the $22 trillion US debt market is the biggest and most liquid market in the world.


    More importantly, central banks hold U.S. dollars because that’s the global standard: the U.S. dollar has been the world’s primary international reserve currency for seventy-five years. But it sure looks like the elitists of the world want to buy a lot of gold removing it from circulation amongst the public.


    According to Sovereign Man, the World Gold Council’s report showed that foreign governments and central banks have been buying a LOT more gold than in previous years. Net gold purchases in Q1/2019 among foreign governments and central banks was nearly 70% greater than Q1/2018 and the highest rate of first quarter purchases in six years.


    The Chinese in particular, have been stockpiling gold faster than ever, while at the same time, Chinese ownership of U.S. Treasuries as a percentage of total holdings has been gradually declining over the past years. The Chinese have been rapidly ditching the U.S. dollar and other countries are following suit.


    The Congressional Budget Office forecasts that the United States government will never again see an annual budget deficit of less than $1 trillion starting in 2021, and should the political overlords decide to start handing out free college and writing of trillion in student loans while promising free healthcare to all, the deficit will explode like never before. All of that has a serious impact on the ability of the U.S. government to repay its obligations to foreign creditors. And now those creditors are wising up and unwilling to carry the risk of holding U.S. Treasuries.


    Central banks themselves are on the verge of insolvency and in just as bad of a position as governments. The whole system will eventually collapse, but gold will still be around. It is not a variable. Virtually anywhere you can possibly go in the world, gold has value, and it’s definitely worth your consideration as a means to protect your wealth.


    If central banks are buying up all the gold they can get their hands on, shouldn’t we be at least considering it too?

    Gold is risky, at least as an investment for individuals.

    I say this because the market is rigged and all those who (purport to) believe in the 'free market' and 'market forces' etc.. etc.. are the ones doing the rigging.

    Still, when the central banks start buying it you know there's something big about to happen

    Gold is risky, invest in weapons, ammo and tactics. That way you can take the gold from others if sh*t ever hits the fan.

    Shitting on a gold mine? Thieves steal £1mn toilet from UK palace




    'America', the fully-working solid gold toilet stolen from Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, England.



    A £1 million golden toilet has been stolen from the birthplace of Winston Churchill. The dirty crime involved thieves ripping the18-carat gold commode from its plumbing, causing flooding at the Oxfordshire palace.


    Thames Valley Police arrested a 66-year-old man in connection with the theft after they received a report of a burglary at Blenheim Palace early Saturday morning.

    Thieves broke into the historical site and stole a “highvalue toilet made out of gold that was on display at the palace,” Detective Inspector Jess Milne said. “Due to the toilet being plumbed in to the building, this has caused significant damage and flooding.”

    The golden toilet was named ‘America’ and was part of a contemporary art exhibition at thepalace. Created by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, it was plumbed into a wooden chamber opposite the room where former UK prime minister Churchill wasborn, and visitors were able to queue up to use it.

    The toilet has not been recovered, and police have issued an appeal for anyone who may have information to come forward.


    A police spokesman said 'they have nothing to go on!




    R T Sitting on a gold mine? Thieves steal £1mn toilet from UK palace 14 IX 2019. 18-carat solid gold toilet stolen from Blenheim Palace in the UK has been valued at €5.4m, its chief executive has said.
