The World Is Cornering The Elite…

A recent article by Costata put forth the theory that silver is a losing bet, because the Elite won’t let it threaten their interests. His article , Has the Silver Market Been Cornered… AGAIN? is the latest in the silver bashing parade. A couple of my readers would like my opinion of his theory and it’s possible implications on the silver market.

Costata starts with, all works of fiction require “a willing suspension of disbelief”. I find this as an interesting starting point, but not for the reason he sets forth. You see we are living in the great fiction of the American Dream.

  • It is a place where generations can get something for nothing.
  • It is a world where we can print unlimited money/debt from a privately, foreign owned central banks.
  • It is a dream of a consumer led society and not of a manufacturing society.
  • It is a hallucination of trillion dollar war machines securing the world’s natural resources for the Elite and their corporations.
  • It is a land where people think that the digits on their screen are real wealth and that fractional reserve banking is safe.
  • It is an illusion that the more debt we create, the richer we are.

It is said that men go mad in herds, and only come to their senses slowly and one by one.” -Charles MacKay.

We willingly suspend disbelief everyday to live in this American Dream. Some are starting to wake up from this dream and that scares the Masters who control this dream. They need to put us back to sleep or at least scare us with campfire stories about REAL tangible assets. The world is waking up from this perceived reality and now see though this dream. The implications for the Elite are truly frightening and they know it.

Costata says that the Elite can control the flow of the silver to essentially control the market. This is true, as we have seen in the past two weeks in the paper silver markets.

  • The Elite can continue to trade 8 billion ounces of paper silver and knock 30% off the price of silver in a heart beat. They can do this even though there is only 1 billion ounces of silver produced every year and that there is only 33 million ounces in the Registered vaults of the CRIMEX.
  • They can continue to manipulate the market by effectively doubling the cost of margins in 8 days.
  • They can continue to have the 8 largest banks net short 150 days of global silver production without ever settling or delivering the physical metal.
  • They can continue to trade 45 to 1 paper ounces to physical on the LBMA as Andrew MacGuire testified to.
  • They can continue to take unlimited paper losses as long as the Fed backs them up in this paper suppression game.
  • They can continue to break down regulations to expand their thieving.
  • They can continue to have insider knowledge of smack downs.
  • They can continue to pressure miners and refiners.
  • They can continue to lease metal they don’t have.
  • They can continue to create money/debt out of thin air.
  • They can continue to use dark pools of liquidity and derivatives to add further layers to the game.
  • They can continue to change the rules and raise borrowing costs like they did to the Hunt Brothers.
  • They can continue to have the regulators turn a blind eye to the manipulative schemes they pull.
  • They can continue to demonetize silver like they did in the Crime of 1873 and in 1964.
  • They can continue to squeeze  billionaires to dump their 129 million ounces over their ties to AIG.
  • They can continue to unload billions of ounces in the national stockpiles of silver into the open market.
  • They can continue to sell unallocated silver and ETF’s as a alternative to the REAL physical silver.
  • They can continue to push gold as the real metal to own, because the Elite have a lot of that in the Central Banks.
  • They can continue to demonize REAL assets and continue to glorify the latest and greatest paper instruments.
  • They can continue to trade and control their casino.
  • They can do all of this, until the music stops.

“Things that cannot go on forever, won’t”

The world is waking up to what these few hundred insider Elites have done to humanity with debt and war. Western citizens are waking up to the financial terrorism of the Elite having been burned in the stock and housing bubbles and paying for perpetual wars.

  • They no longer trust the “safety nets” that only seem to benefit the “too big to fails” and the well connected.
  • They no longer trust the computer rigged markets or the brokers betting against their own clients.
  • They no longer trust the media that spins the Elite’s lie of the day.
  • They no longer trust the governments that lied us into war after war.
  • They no longer trust the regulators asleep at the wheel.
  • They no longer trust the politicians that promise hope and change and give us more of the same.
  • They no longer trust that their retirement, jobs or future is safe.
  • They no longer trust that you can consume your way to prosperity.
  • They no longer trust corporations that seek short term gains at the long term deterioration of our society.
  • They no longer trust the dollar as it will reach its mathematically inevitable collapse.
  • They no longer trust that the music will play on forever and they want out.

Because of all of this and more people are seeking the safety of silver. It has NO counter party risk, unlike all paper assets. It has Allodial title to it, unlike all paper assets. It has a 5,000 year history as real wealth, unlike all paper currencies. It is historically and inflationary cheap today. It will never go to $0, unlike most paper assets.

Costata says that those that buy silver may be in the wrong metal, since the Elite have gold. If the dollar dies, he theorizes, the Elite will make gold money and not silver, since they don’t have any. He says that Central Banks and foreign countries all over the world are buying gold as a reserve asset and not silver. Institutions are buying gold and not silver like Northwestern Mutual and the University of Texas. He says that these institutions have unlimited money and seem only interested in gold. All of this is true but does he honestly believe that when paper currencies die that people are going to shun a cheaper monetary metal for gold simply because big institutions and banks demand it? No, if anything that is even more reason to stay away from gold, as that is another asset controlled and owned by the Elite. After the Elite demonetized silver in 1873 and forced us on the gold standard the Elite squeezed the economy into a depression like this country has never seen before. They contracted the money supply so much that it crushed America. I think because the industrial demand has gotten us this far with silver, when the monetary demand picks up as nations and institutions start buying, it will be turbo chargers on an already hot investment.

I do agree with Costata that hating JP Morgan is not enough to push the silver market, which is why I wrote the Silver Bullet and the Silver Shield . This article set forth just about every reason why you should sell every paper asset and buy physical silver. I have never seen another asset with as many reasons to buy and hold in my life. I do not believe that JP Morgan is going to go down with the ship and they could go long and stay long. They have been adding a lot of new physical silver in their brand new CRIMEX approved vault. I do believe that one day there will be a physical default of silver and that will change everything.

When this collapse inevitably happens, it will not just be the dollar that dies, it will most likely the the institutions, ideas, and systems that perpetuated that lie will die too. No longer will the people listen to those, that at best, did not see this coming, or at worst, made this happen. This crisis will not lead to a consolidation of power into a world currency, but a shattering of globalization into a decentralized, slower and local world. Communities will go about rebuilding a more sustainable society. Some may create their local currencies or barter systems. Many I believe will use silver and gold to supplement the new banking system.

Even if silver never truly gets monetized again like Costata theorizes, it should rise in REAL purchasing power. After all silver is not monetized now and is aggressively attacked from all ends and it is STILL up  400%+ since 2008.  I mean if the Elite were ALL powerful, why isn’t silver back down to $7? And we have not seen the final collapse of the paper money system… Wait until the whole world try’s to save their quadrillions of paper assets and try to buy anything with real tangible value. All REAL assets will rise not just gold and silver. Heck even your kids beanie babies might be worth some serious money again.

Costata then sets up a straw man argument saying that we are trying to make silver the premier monetary metal over gold. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are seeking to protect our assets and strike at the weak under belly of the Quadrillion empire of lies. I cannot think of anyone pushing for a silver only standard. I would hope that we have competition in money, gold, silver, platinum, and debt free currencies of all sorts. If we are successful, all REAL assets will rise as the central banks cash will be trashed. New forms of money will be created, hopefully in a free market and hopefully debt free. A new world will be created from the ashes for the debt and war cycle of the Elite.

What about the billions of people outside this Anglo American Empire who want a shot at the title? China, Russia, Iran, India, Germany, France, South Africa, Brazil and many other countries who are sick and tired of the Elite’s banking power and the wars they fund. They can win the biggest battle by not even firing a single shot. Right now they are buying gold, but they have trillions of our dollars and this will find its way into all commodities including silver. The new Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange is another cut in the thin under belly of the Anglo American Empire. Soon they will start trading silver and taking physical delivery.

The Elite quite simply cannot stop an idea whose time has come. The simple idea is that things that cannot go on forever, won’t. The world sees how the Elite really work. The world wants out of the dollar and only REAL tangible assets provide that way out. The Elite can try to “corner” the flow of silver, the rest of the world will corner the Elite. Dollar is doomed there is no stopping that. The best that the Elite can hope for it is that they can fool enough people into a World Bank or IMF sponsored currency, which of course will be controlled by the same Anglo American Banksters. When the collapse happens there will be power vacuums all over the world and local power will fill the void where the dollar once reigned supreme. The Elite will fail horribly in their quest for a one world currency and it will shatter into a thousand pieces. Decades of schemes and deceptions will be turned upside down in a few weeks.

Try as they might, the Elite cannot stop reality.

  • The reality is that debt cannot be created forever.
  • The reality is that we cannot pay the $140 trillion dollars of unfunded liabilities without destroying the dollar.
  • The reality is that we cannot spend our way to prosperity.
  • The reality is they cannot deliver on all of the paper silver they say they have.
  • The reality is wealth is going to the East.
  • The reality is that the Anglo American empire has not been good stewards of their power and deserve to lose it.
  • The reality is that the economy will never come back until all of this debt is purged from the system.
  • The reality is that China and the rest of the world has us by the short ones.
  • The reality is I and many others will never put a dime back in the hands of Wall St.
  • The reality is the Elite are powerful, but they are not all powerful.
  • The reality is that all of the minions that serve the Elite now on every level, will abandon ship as soon as that first check bounces and they will start pointing fingers at the guilty.
  • They reality is that you can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.
  • The reality is that we are going to have a reversion to the mean, divine retribution, karma or whatever you want to call it and it is going to shake the Elite’s power to the ground.

I believe that simply looking at the Gold to Silver ratio that silver is going to continue to outperform gold despite this latest paper manipulation. The ratio that gold and silver come out of the ground is about 1 oz of gold to every 10 oz of silver or a GSR of 1:10. Given that gold has been treasured as a precious metal throughout all of human history and silver more or less and been trashed as an industrial metal for the past ohhh 138 years… why then are we at 1:42 ratio?! The reason is my dear readers, is that for all of the reasons stated above, the Elite want to suppress the price of silver. It is a direct threat to to their entire Quadrillion empire of lies.This cannot go on forever, won’t.

This latest paper manipulation has served notice to all silver investors to avoid the rigged paper game in the Banksters Casino. I have only ever recommended buying a holding REAL physical silver. I saw what the Elite were capable in 2008 and vowed to never get caught in that trap again. Eventually, we will take enough physical silver off of the market to control the REAL, not paper flow of silver. This should coincide with the collapse of the world’s currencies and paper assets. Leading to the most devastating one-two punch in investment history. Those that were lured into the paper markets got burned but learned a valuable lesson and will only buy physical from here on out. No more miners, no more SLV, or no more options, just cold, hard physical silver.

I have had many Strategy Sessions and many people are dumping their 401ks and IRAs into buying REAL physical silver. If I had to guess, there was probably a ton of silver from the handful of people I have spoken to, and I am a “nobody.” At some point the CRIMEX will not be able to deliver on all of those paper promises they trade. So go ahead and laugh, silver shorters, the day is yours, but I take comfort in the fact that we are playing for keeps. While you are playing musical chairs, I and many others have already sat down waiting for the music to stop. I have heard that he who laughs last, laughs best. We will let you know how it is when this all goes down. It is better to be 6 years to early to this silver rocket, than one day too late. There will be no “do overs.” There will be no second chances. There will only be those that were Aware and Prepared and those that danced away the greatest opportunity.

  • silverdoc

    Excellent way of rationalizing your argument with supportable, objective, facts and reasoning, rather than subjective opinion and conjecture that most use to try to discredit their detractors. Credible words having staying power…and they leave a mark. Nice rebuttal SS!

  • Tony

    The mere fact that “Costata” took the time to write this piece has only re-enforced my commitment to keep taking my fiat money (in any form whether IRA,401K, bank acct, etc) out of their system and into the PEOPLES” system of honest money silver, for that I thank him.

    Once the cowardly politicans and media people start to realize they are fighting a losing battle they will jump ship and The Elite will too, hopefully after all the life rafts are gone.

  • Bob

    Brilliant piece, Chris. Reading the Costata piece left me a bit confused and disoriented. Most of all, I noticed not one word about inflation. The most troubling part is the anonymity. Hey if you’re writing something with integrity that you believe in, do it in the open. Subject yourself to dialogue, conversation, comments, and argument. No, he can’t have any of that. Too many smart guys (like you) would tear his argument apart (as you have already done).

  • ewkeane
    be sure to watch the vid called ‘andy schectman’
    i think that there may be something to this physical silver shortage thing.
    silver door closing, indeed!
    the moral of this story?
    buy it while it is available and cheap, like right now.
    sell the farm and buy Ag? Nope, but i may get a part time job and bank that pay in Ag, and maybe a few pennyweights of Au.
    buy local, buy lower than your hoard current value.
    ‘junk’ aint junk no more. i like mercury dimes and anything that dosnt have the face of a dead president on it.
    copper pennys? value more than twice the face value. nickles are a penny over their melt value. nah. rolls of wheat backs have a sort of numi value, i would trade two and a half rolls of mixed pre 82 pennys for one pre 64 dime.
    I seen an englehart one ounce in the coin shop. i think i will get it.

  • Hans-Peter

    Hello my American friends,

    i am a Bavarian from Germany and I really do like your site. Not everyone is aware of the tricks the elite is playing on us. But there is one thing for sure – there are also a lot of decent people buying physical silver on this side of the Atlantic.

    Take care

  • Chris,

    It’s 5:56 in the AM, and that was a brilliant piece. What a fresh morning wake up call!

    I too have sat down for the music to stop.

    The hardest part so far is figuring out how to leave the country.


  • Way2go

    Thank you for the encouragement. Excellent read. We will be using Gold and silver as a monetary system until the Great Tribulation as stated in Revelation: 18:12 to 18:20. Once again, great encouragement!!!:}

  • ag_nostic

    Great article SS.
    keep up the battle, for a battle it will be……

  • Once again, Silver Shield is right on target. NOT ONLY have ALL fiat currencies, throughout history (the past 6,000 YEARS!) – FAILED – so too, have ALL EMPIRES. THIS alone, should give Americans, particularly, grave pause… America is the Roman Empire. It just hasn’t fallen yet. One more reason to begin stocking up on silver… (One further word to the wise – things could, potentially, get real ugly in the U.S. when the Empire collapses. Which has been foreshadowed by TSA with their hands down our pants! Best to be as prepared as possible. This website and Silver Shield are a great place to start…)

  • james

    i would like to know the real identity of the authors of these opinion pieces otherwise
    i am distrusting of them

  • @james

    you must be a part of the CRIMEX family wanting to know the author’s real identity.

    I respect the author’s desire to use a pseudonym, because you know what? Big brother’s watching.

    excellent arguments i concur with silverdoc. it sickens me that we have money invested in the wall street con game called the 401k. any suggestions on how i can get out? if it wasn’t for the current tax break i wouldn’t be in it. but i want no part in enriching the elite.

  • The new Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange is another cut in the thin under belly of the Anglo American Empire.

    I want to believe, but doesn’t this new exchange mean that the Cartel will now be able to exercise 24/7 price control, literally around the globe? If this new Exchange is run by something like HSBC, is it still a good news for normal humans? Thank you.

    • Silver Shield

      I looked at the site at the board and I don’t see any Goldman trolls but I cannot find who owns it.

      Just remember China executes those that commit fraud…

  • joe

    Good article. I just wish it wouldn’t be written in such a way that people could be led to believe one should put all their wealth into silver. Remember, the market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent. Do not put more than 5-30% of your wealth into gold/silver….unless you are a person that could ride out a five to ten year stalling or mini collapse in these metals.

    People have to realize that precious metals could lag for a few years…and then what do you do if you need to cash out. You would take a loss. So keep some US dollars, stocks and of course precious metals. I personally would only do 1/3rd of my precious metals in silver. Probably better to do only one fifth.

    • Silver Shield

      That is the beauty of physical silver, you can never become insolvent.
      You are not using leverage.
      It is just another form of savings.
      It is in the long run safer than if it was in a bank, when you understand how they use your money in a fractional reserve system.

      Sure silver can lag, so can every investment.
      But not every investment has NO counter party risk and is great for fighting inflation.

      Take away all of the silver fundamentals and look at what silver is measured in dollars….
      Can you tell me that the dollar is going to get its feet back?
      Hove you looked at the crushing debt that is coming due and if interest rates go up we are toast.

      Silver is the anti dollar.

      I understand the risk tolerance is different for all so do what ever makes you feel comfortable.

  • jeff

    How can we corner the elite if we don’t know who they are? The best we can do is survive, the fed has all the gold ie power. when it hits the fan thank your lucky stars you survived long enough to surmount a counter offensive. federal reserve = 666

    • Silver Shield

      By hacking at the root of their power their Central Banks and their fiat currency.

      You can destroy their power they will suffer regardless how deep in the shadows some of these families are.

  • Robert

    “All of this is true but does he honestly believe that when paper currencies die that people are going to shun a cheaper monetary metal for gold simply because big institutions and banks demand it?”
    Where in Costata’s article did he say anything about how silver would react if paper currencies die?

  • AndyB

    The latest figures that I could find on the USGS estimate of total world silver reserves was 400,000 Metric Tonnes as of 2009. The yearly mine production going forward is estimated at 24,000 Metric Tonnes. Since there is much evidence that yearly demand has been consistently meeting or exceeding supply, then it appears that we will run out of silver on the planet within 20 years. HMMM I wonder what the price of silver/ounce will be in the 10th year, the 14th year, the 19th year? Food for thought.

  • Javawerks

    SS, great write up. I basically agree with everything in your article. That said, I would like to make two comments:

    1. I don’t buy the argument that the Far East will overtake the West. The property bubble in China will likely out do all global property bubbles combined. Combined with strong commodity and wage inflation as well as an aging population, and you have a very sick China. And, of course, Japan has been comatose for 2+ decades. The rest of Asia is not looking too hot either. I believe at one time the average debt-to-GDP ratio among Asian nations was near 70%. If anything, the collapse of central banking and fiat currencies will most likely level the global economic playing field.

    2. Silver makes me nervous due to it’s overabundance in industry and as a currency. To date, I have preferred gold as the one true money. When the gold standard returns, then I would readily convert gold into silver as required for daily expenses.

    Just sharing in the conversation, thinking out loud, if you will. Again, nice work!

  • Robert

    AndyB: So your interested in silver as an investment not a store of value?

  • kevinace

    Hi Chris
    Thanks for the reasurance you give for holding silver long term.Paper will eventually burn if we all keep stacking.In the UK many are questioning the oppression we face on a daily basis.Many small business owners are realising they have been farmed and are asking questions.I daily give out the sons of liberty academy site to enlighten those looking for answers.
    Through awareness and hitting them hard by converting paper in to hard assets we can overcome these elitist scum.For those who have not already joined you must visit Chris’s academy i am on the 6th module and although i knew a lot about the elites methodology i have learned even more and will not be conned anymore with their paper markets.
    “Burn paper,keep stacking” we have them on the run.
    Keep up the fight Chris we will win in the end.

  • Physical silver is the ace of aces. However, a dagger is aimed at our hearts! The silver nationalization event of August 9, 1934 could be repeated and certainly without any free market price! “Precedent” is part of what we’d hear with “national emergency” claims blaring. The fact is that England has attacked silver as money since the 16th century raids on Spanish silver on the Atlantic by Sir Francis Drake. These attacks have never stopped. Since Colonial times the British have maintained ties with old East coast wealth (Stephen Girard in the late 18th century) and many others. The British Empire launched The Pilgrims Society in London in 1902 and New York in 1903 with Americans as junior partners. These are The Silver Stealers AND The Gold Grabbers. Spend several hours reading the documentary and be convinced. The President, who can order a silver nationalization, is a MEMBER (proof accompanies this claim!)

  • Brad

    @Charles I can only hope the president orders silver nationalization/confiscation. 1) This time around (vs the Hunt bros run-up in 80’s and previously)silver is a global market so you will have plenty of people to sell to. 2) it will drive the price incredibly higher due to a black market developing 3) people want what the can’t have, it’s human nature, if the president of the U.S. nationalizes silver what kind of message do you think that sends to the rest of the world? People who never even had an interest in silver before will be buyers. They are dealing (or trying to) with it prefectly now- push down the price quietly with enough paper to shake people out of silver. In addition, less than 1% of people own physical investment grade gold AND silver, that’s a lot of trouble for a small market.

  • “The World Is Cornering the Elite”? Maybe so. Not soon enough!

    The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Eight Families

  • From Jim Butler ( and Miles Franklin (free) e-newsletter:(this is the most ‘bullish’thing I’ve read,on where silver prices will likely go,in the future:)

    “So here’s my takeaway –total world silver inventories appear no greater than the one billion ounce level I had long guesstimated and may,in fact,be significantly less. That’s one billion ounces (or less) in a world with almost 7 billion souls. I’ll do the math for you –there is less than 0.15% of one ounce per capita. In dollars,that comes to about $5 worth of silver per capita. Just for comparison purposes,the per capita dollar value of gold bullion (3 billion ounces) comes to $650 per head,or 130 times more than silver. If that doesn’t auger well for silver outperforming gold in the future,I don’t [know] what does.

    Pay attention to the daily changes in recorded silver inventories,but not to the point of losing track of the big picture. The big picture shows there is an incredibly small amount of silver in the world,much less than just about anyone realizes.”(If necessary,read those figures again)

  • TruthTeller

    People, please understand the folowing:

    Everything that is happening on a global economic and political scale has been planned a long time ago already, and everything is going according to the plans of the elite. And when I say “elite” I mean the GLOBAL elite, because it’s not only the Anglo-Amerian elite we are dealing with, it’s the GLOBAL elite!

    Thus, the elite of the east (China etc) are part of it, and therefor this West vs East dynamic is a mere creation of the global elite to distract the masses, and gain control. All (well almost all) governments work for the global elite, and every decision they make is working toward materializing the global governance agenda of this global elite. The only coutries that are not part of the “plan” are those that are currently experiencing “civil unrest” in North Africa and the Middle East. That is why they are experiencing “civil unrests”, instigated by the CIA, MI5, MI6 and other secret services, which are merely fronts of the global elite. This is how they will effect regime change (to ones who will obey them), get control of their oil and resouces, and chase up the oil price.

    The demise of the West and the rise of the East (China etc) has been planned long ago. China was built up and is being used as the domination force to spread the neo-Communism, which is the essence of the New World Order.

    Gold is where the global elite park their wealth now, and oil, fiat currency and perpetual debt is what they use to gain and exert control.

    It’s that simple.

  • SILVER is the bona-fide ‘Achilles Heel’ of the ‘elite’.

    Buy as much of it, as you reasonably, possibly are able. And hold on to it (physical silver only, not paper silver…)

    If everyone does this – it’s OVER, for the fucking bankers.
