John Embry On Economic Collapse
Sprott's Embry explains what has led us to this shocking tipping point in America’s history. Going off the gold standard led to massive money printing & an explosion of U.S. government debt. “The prospect for something going seriously wrong that can’t be corrected is enormously high.” He believes any rise in interest rates could break the debt bubble. How should investors prepare for such a crisis? Embry suggests investing in gold & silver. While many people argue gold & silver is overvalued right now, Embry says gold & silver have never been cheaper relative to the amount of debt in the world .. Embry points out that by and large, average investors have almost no gold & silver exposure. He says there is so much money invested in other assets, that when investors start moving toward gold & silver, the coming rise in the precious metal bull market will dwarf the 1980s gold & silver bull run. “I think the upside potential in both these metals is beyond most people’s comprehension." .. 17 minutes

The Path to Total Dictatorship: America's Shadow Government and Its Silent Coup

Are you getting the message yet?

The next president, much like the current president and his predecessors, will be little more than a figurehead, a puppet to entertain and distract the populace from what’s really going on.

As Lofgren reveals, this state within a state, “concealed behind the one that is visible at either end of Pennsylvania Avenue,” is a “hybrid entity of public and private institutions ruling the country according to consistent patterns in season and out, connected to, but only intermittently controlled by, the visible state whose leaders we choose.”

The Deep State not only holds the nation’s capital in thrall, but it also controls Wall Street (“which supplies the cash that keeps the political machine quiescent and operating as a diversionary marionette theater”) and Silicon Valley.

This is fascism in its most covert form, hiding behind public agencies and private companies to carry out its dirty deeds.

It is a marriage between government bureaucrats and corporate fat cats.

As Lofgren concludes:

[T]he Deep State is so heavily entrenched, so well protected by surveillance, firepower, money and its ability to co-opt resistance that it is almost impervious to change… If there is anything the Deep State requires it is silent, uninterrupted cash flow and the confidence that things will go on as they have in the past. It is even willing to tolerate a degree of gridlock: Partisan mud wrestling over cultural issues may be a useful distraction from its agenda.

In other words, as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, as long as government officials—elected and unelected alike—are allowed to operate beyond the reach of the Constitution, the courts and the citizenry, the threat to our freedoms remains undiminished.

So the next time you find yourselves despondent over the 2016 presidential candidates, remember that it’s just a puppet show intended to distract you from the silent coup being carried out by America's shadow government.
