 Top 17 Reasons To Buy Gold

#17- Gold is the purest form of money-  JP Morgan was once the most powerful banker in the world and he was quoted as saying, “ Gold is money.  Everything else is credit. ” Once you truly understand this statement you will be on your way to never being poor again and creating generational wealth.  Gold has all of the characteristics of money
(1) It must be durable, which is why we don’t use corn.

(2) It must be divisible, which is why we don’t use art work.

(3) It must be convenient, which is why we don’t use copper.

(4) It must be consistent, which is why we don’t use real estate.

(5) It must possess value in itself, which is why we don’t use paper.

(6) It must be limited in the quantity that is available, which is why we don’t use iron.

(7) It should have a long history of acceptance, which is why we don’t use bitcoin.

Gold is the purest form of money, even more so than silver, simply because it does not have many industrial uses.

#16- Everything else is credit-  Think about it, literally every asset we are taught to invest in is simply a paper asset with counter party risk. Stocks, bonds, Munis, ETF’s, derivatives and insurance policies are just someone else’s promises to pay.  Even Real Estate and businesses are really only worth what the buyer can finance for it.  For example, what would be the cash value of your house versus a market with 30 year rates at 4%?

#15- All of the world’s currencies have a fatal flaw.  The dollar, and all other currencies in the world, are debt based currencies that only come into existence when debt is created.  When you sign a car loan for $20,000, the bank is not lending your $20,000, they are creating it out of thin air and it is backed by the contract you sign.  The real scary thing is if all of the money in the world comes into existence like this, where then do we get the money to pay the interest?

#14- Generational debt based ponzi scheme- The ONLY way this system functions is that MORE debt must be created every year in EXCESS of the debt AND interest created the year before. Every generation ends up paying for the debts the previous generation incurred. This has a fatal flaw as there always comes a point where the accumulated debts become so large that it becomes impossible to even pay the interest on the debt.

#13- Inflation or Deflation… it doesn’t matter-  Once any nation reaches the point where the accumulated debts become so large that they can no longer pay even the interest on the debt they have one of two fates.

Nations like Ireland, Greece and Spain that do not print their own currency, suffer massive deflation as their real wealth is drained from them until they eventually default on the debt.

Other nations like The US and Japan that do print their own currencies, eventually suffer hyper inflation where they continue to pay old debts with new money destroying the value of the currency itself by creating more and more of it.

True hyper inflations are not as much as a monetary event as it is a psychological event where the population realizes that they are getting screwed by the bankers and politicians that create all of this money to line their pockets and it is causing the dollar to lose value. The population eventually starts buying anything with real value and literally throws the paper money away.  In the end of either case of inflation or deflation, the currency and the entire economy built off of it is destroyed.

#12 Gold cannot be printed- The finding, mining and refining of gold is an incredibly difficult process.  The bankers can create trillions of dollar out of thin air to pay off their buddies, but they cannot do that with gold.  Why would you work for and store your wealth in a rigged casino that can change the rules and values at any minute?

#11 Gold can be hidden- Unlike all of your paper assets, gold can be hidden for centuries, if necessary.  With governments increasingly looking to steal wealth from bank and retirement accounts, having an ounce of gold in your hand is a very powerful way of taking back your soveriegnty.  More importantly it can be used to create generational wealth.

#10- All paper money eventually returns to it’s intrinsic value… zero.  There have literally been thousands of  paper currencies that have been created and destroyed throughout human history and they all suffer the same fate and become worthless.  Even the Dollar has become worthless. Since the foundation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 the dollar has lost 97% of it’s value. This has happened over the past 100 years and it has defaulted on is promise to pay in silver in 1964 and promise to pay in gold in 1971.

#9 Gold is stored energy. Gold is really valued by the amount of energy that is put into the finding, ming and refining of it.  It is concentrated labor, energy and luck.  Given that we are coming close to the end of an era of relatively peaceful and abundantly cheap energy it only makes sense to own gold knowing that resources are declining and life will get more expensive and dangerous.

#8- Even enemies trust gold. Gold is universally recognized as real wealth. Even enemies can trade gold without having to worry about counter party risk. You could go to any civilization around the world, in the past present or future, with a few ounces of gold and not even knowing the language and be able to buy everything you need.  You cannot say that about any of the paper currencies or assets most people own today.

#7- The rest of the world wants Gold.  The world hates the American Empire that has spread nothing but debt and death for the last few decades.  They know that in order for our dollar to continue the US needs to protect the Petro Dollar trade which backs the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.  The more that nations stop using the dollar to settle trade the less demand the dollar has globally.  This means that all of those dollar we export consuming the world’s production will eventually come home and chase after fewer and fewer goods that we still have.

#6 Gold is rare- If you took all of the gold in the world and put it into a cube that would block would only have 65 feet sides.  Usually we are trying to find ways to visualize the trillions of dollars spent every year, but 65 ft cube is pretty easy for a person to grasp.  There is an estimated 155,000 tones of gold that has ever been mined throughout history, if it was equally divided amongst all of humanity would only work out to .7 ounces of gold for each man, woman and child on earth.  We know that it is not equally divided and that the majority of humanity will never touch gold.

#5 The Golden Rule- He who has the gold will make the rules.  You need to have real wealth such as gold and silver to make the transition to the next monetary order.  All of the debts will be wiped clean and gold and silver will act as the basis for a new economic order as it is universally accepted as money.  What are you doing to prepare yourself and your family for that day?

#4 The US is a Paper Tiger-  So much of the power we have is just remnants of a time when the US was the number one energy and manufacturing power in the world.  Those days are long gone.  As we lose control over the Middle East like the failed attempt to start a war with Syria and Iran and even the fact that US has no diplomatic ties with Saudi Arabia right now means we are on the verge of losing the petro dollar.  We don’t even produce anything more than doughnuts, because all of our corporations have sent their manufacturing capacity to Asia.  Now we are consuming the last little bit of credit we have with the rest of the world as we amuse ourselves to death.

#3 Hard days are coming.  It will not be long until those that create the energy and manufactured goods demand real wealth in return for their real assets.  When that day comes, if you do not have real wealth you simply will have nothing to offer other than your labor.  The scary thing is that most Americans do not have any real friends because of Facebook and no real skills because 70% of the economy is consumerism.  This will lead most Americans fighting for survival as all of their paper wealth and economy collapses.  Having an ounce of gold or silver is a buffer for you and your family from a very harsh reality that is coming.

#2 China and India are the past and future-  Prior to the European colonization of the world, China and India combined for half of the world’s economic output.  Only after the British colonized India and fought a 20 year Opium War with China, did that trend change and poverty hit those nations.  Now these nations and many more like Russia, Iran, Indonesia and South Africa are wise to see the tricks  of the Anglo American Empire and are buying gold to protect themselves from outsiders interfering with their prosperity.

Most Americans are not paying attention to the massive changes that are happening in the world today but the world is moving away from the US and their dollar like a meth head in the park.  China has signed 15 bi lateral trade deals with major nations like Japan, Russia and Australia to dump the dollar in Bi Lateral trade. Russia is about to sign a Holy Grail deal with China to have the world’s largest energy producer power the world’s largest manufacturing power in the world without dollars.  China, Russia and India are buying massive amounts of gold to back their economies and help with the transition to a new monetary order.  The world in short is building another world without us and the US will find themselves on the outside looking in.

#1 Gold is made form collapsed stars!  Throw out all of the historical, monetary and geopolitical reasons for owning gold.  The very fact that gold is made from exploding stars is simply amazing. When you hold an ounce of beautiful gold and feel it’s weight and luster you will also feel how amazing it is to own something that can only be created by the incredible power of exploding super novas fusing elements together into creating the very dense and heavy metal known as gold.  This gold is not from earth and is something truly spectacular to own in of itself.

The Silver Shield Collection is proud to offer it’s very first 1 ounce gold coin, the gold Freedom Girl.  This golden girl is .999 pure gold coin is a much better value and more pure than the best selling gold coin in the world the American Gold Eagle.  The 1 ounce gold Freedom Girl also comes with its own display case, airtite coin case and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity that will show its relative scarcity from all other gold coins in the market.  The Gold Freedom Girl available at any of the authorized retailers found at Silver Shield Collection .com

    Very nice coin. But I thought silver was a better choice to spend our fiat on. The video also said that only gold was money. I thought the word for money in many languages is silver.

    • Silver Shield

      Gold is a more pure money because it lacks many industrial uses.
      Silver is going to go ballistic because of its history of money and its investment and industrial uses.

  • ettk45

    Only #11 touches on the one reason to choose gold over silver. It’s much easier to hide, to transport, and to store safely.

    • Silver Shield

      It is good for bugging out and hiding but it is also a good insurance policy on the silver investment or any investment for that matter.

  • valerie

    If it is priceless, like myself, how could I buy it.

  • Goobert

    Dont we want silver over gold? Gold might be more rare. But silver has hundreds of industrial uses and gold has zero.

    The industrial revolution of the 19-20th centuries are what greatly helped us prosper. Industrial revolutions make work easier and prices of goods more affordable and readily available to the working class.

    Sorry I’m no king just a poor-man. And silver will always be my gold.

  • Paul ONeill

    I laughed out loud when I got he email because of #4 (of the top 14 reasons to own Silver videos)…

    Silver is better than Gold, Sell your Gold and buy Silver ! blah blah blah
    But wait, we sell Gold now so here are the top 17 reasons to own Gold…UGH !

    I think owning both is a good idea, and I really like the freedom girl coin you’ve produced,But “boy o boy” you guys really look like your double talking used car salesmen now. You should have really considered all of your previous videos before integrating Gold and have had coexisting logic for owning both without contradicting your previous positions.
    I support what you do, I respect you, but I think this was a huge blunder.


    • Silver Shield

      I like silver over gold, especially at this gold to silver ratio, but there is room for every portfolio for gold.
      Gold Freedom Girl is certainly a better value than the Gold American Eagle.

  • Frank

    Hey Mr. Silver Shield!

    You are such a transparent used car salesman ASSHOLE! It is all coming into focus now. First we sell our gold to buy silver because “that’s where the money is”, but now we are supposed to sell it and buy gold! Both are valuable but you have pushed silver from the beginning because you are “Silver Shield”. Obviously you have turned into a carnival barker, shill or maybe a precious metal whore. What credibility you have left….. LEFT!

    • Silver Shield

      Silver is where the smart money is… Did I say differently in this video?

    • Dave T

      I’ve replied to the video and aspersive comments in general, but you sir, merit a direct response.

      What I want would like to know is where you acquired the authority (other than your first amendment right to display your stupidity) to make this sort of claim? You are totally out of line.

      “It is all coming into focus now” ??? What’s clearly in focus is that you either didn’t or can’t comprehend the most basic “take home” points in “Mr Silver Shield’s” body of work – which is, amazingly, available GRATIS, on the web, or that you have some pathetic ulterior motive that I can’t fathom. You remind me of Adam Kokesh. (That’s not a compliment.)

      The only good thing about your comment is that Chris’ very mild response suggests to me that the whole Rob Gray thing has given him one hell of a thick skin.

      Anyway, go back and watch the video a few more times – and the SBSS series as well. Then perhaps you’ll comprehend how imbecilic and mean-spirited your comment appears to me.


  • Keith

    Goodness me, Chris. You’re taking a huge dump over everything you’ve ever said. Sad.

    • Silver Shield

      Sad you think that…
      This video was mainly a gold versus paper not versus silver…

      • Keith

        Yeah, it was an overreaction. Sorry about that. I just saw the headline and it just sounded opportunist given the usual focus on silver. I agree that it’s good to own both. I didn’t mean to call into question your integrity.

  • Ron

    I always used to envy the few people who seemed to know what was going on behind the scenes. They knew that there was more to what the U.S. stands for than we are getting from the five o’clock news. Thanks to the Sons of Liberty Academy now I am one of those people. I’m now going through it for the second time even though I could see the fog start to lift after the first time. It really sucks knowing all of this truth because your innocence will be dead but the only thing that is worse is not knowing it and being a victim of it. I now know why I only get so far investing in the stock market, why politics isn’t the answer, why the middle class is disappearing, what Viet Nam was all about, and on and on. What a dark ugly world it is that we live in. And that isn’t even the worst part, because I think that we become what we “see”. If you think the world is beautiful then you become beautiful. If you think the world is ugly and evil then you become ugly and evil. It’s up to all of us to remake the world into a world that is truly beautiful so we can all become that.

    Ron T.

    • Silver Shield

      Thank you.
      We are working on getting the entire Academy up on the You Tube site and I hope it will help and be appreciated more in the future since there is nothing else out there like it.

  • Frank

    OK, you win! You are the moderator. Will you also delete this comment? Paul said it well. You have become transparent! It is all coming into focus now. First we sell our gold to buy silver because “that’s where the smart money is”, but now we are supposed to sell the silver and or buy gold. Both are valuable but you have pushed silver from the beginning. You are Silver Shield. You have turned into a carnival barker. What credibility you have left….. LEFT!

    • Silver Shield

      Oh I am sorry I did not approve your “ASSHOLE” comment quicker.

      If you want a quick lesson in life so you are not a frustrated little man, if you don’t like something… do something better.

  • Frank

    That’s quite alright! I figured that is why I was censored, and I probably had it coming, but that does not change anything. If you are going to champion silver, fine, but don’t abandoned ship like this and expect everyone to rollover! I’ve had mixed feelings from the beginning but your reasoned endorsement convinced me silver was the place to be. Unfortunately, now it seems you want to hedge your bets. That does not exactly inspire confidence. Incidentally, I agree with most of what you say but this was an extreme departure. Sorry for the crude insult, but I do feel you owe your readers, (Follow None) a serious explanation. Some people will surely rollover for gold. That’s not what you wanted, right?

    • David

      Good Lord. He’s selling one gold coin and people want to read meanings into that, that do not exist. Why do people get bent out of shape over selling a gold coin.

      Is someone going to have a stroke if he sells a platinum coin?

  • Chris Z

    Firstly, Chris your Gold Freedom coin is a Absolute BEAUTY!(Wish I could afford one,maybe one day!)
    I’ve watched all your videos at least twice, and I’m still on board with your message!
    Silver is the Place to be, but I see nothing Wrong with owning some Gold!
    I don’t know why everyone on here is Crying about how you’ve altered your message!
    You haven’t in my opinion! There is a place for Gold and People Need to OPEN THERE EYES!!!
    Keep up the Great work Silver Shield!

  • Jim

    Awesome coin! Ive been wondering what the back was going to look like.

  • Dave T

    The video was *not* titled, “17 Reasons to Buy Gold, not Silver Now…” Advocating the purchase of gold, per se, is not tantamount to a repudiation of advice to buy silver. And advice to buy either is not mutually exclusive. Those of you bashing this video should go back and more carefully consider its points. It is exacty what it said, 17 reasons to buy gold, period. One could also post a video listing the reasons to buy lead (the kind encased in a cartridge and accompanied with a primer and smokeless powder) and likewise, such a video would not be in contradiction to this video or Chris’ previous videos on silver.

    It’a a bit frustrating to even see these comments here. How can one be familiar with SOLA or the other series and yet be so intellectually constrained or inflexible to have interpreted this as a repudiation of holding silver?


    For the record, I too hold mostly silver but “broke” down recently (a few months ago) and bought a half a dozen gold eagles (and still couldn’t resist an additional like amount (cash-wise) in pre 65 dimes and quarters. But I would have loved to have had the option at the time to have acquired these Freedom Girls. Chris, if you get around to a gold Molon Labe, I will definitely send you my eagles or just some more cash for them.

    Peace and prosperity to all.

  • Perry Air Force

    Chris don’t listen to the naysayers and haters the smart individuals will buy both and worry about other issues that concern all of us rather than curse you out for your ingenuity. I watched the whole academy and its the best awakening tool ever. Thank you and God bless

    • Silver Shield

      You don’t do what I do and weep at every nay sayer.
      They all follow the same childish pattern.
      Their first comment is filled with vile comments to which the spam filter holds.
      Then a few minutes later while they are all hopped up on the toxic venom they produced they blast me for not graciously print the insults they made on my site and call me a wimp.
      I then publish both and reply to which they usually, but not always realize that they may have been a little too harsh or have not done anything better to warrant their venemous judgement.
      Either way, I don’t care because I used to be a keyboard commando and have since seen that negative or even debating on the internet is a worthless exercise in futility.
      People are going to think whatever they want and when they do change their mind it was they that did it and they never give credit to those that put forth the logic debate in the first place.

  • Kurt Brown

    Hello Chris…. after stumbling onto the SOL Academy, I was sold on silver. I bought in at 26 dollars and a month later silver started to rocket to 50. I bought as high as $45 and convinced my sister to buy as well. Then the smack down came. But because I really believed in the lessons you provided and did my own research…. I was not shaken out and continued to buy what I could afford on the way down. At 18 I figured silver had bottomed. I had only bought constitutional and eagles but decided to go for buffalo’s because of the low premium. And then you released the “Freedom Girl!” I loved it and purchased some as gifts. Then I ordered the 5 oz. freedom girl and the “snake” and 30 “shekels” and 20 copper “girls” ….. I carry the 5 oz. girl and several other SBSS coins around with me. I show them to everyone. My bank tellers were thrilled and had handled tons of so called “money” but had never held silver like that before….. Bank tellers mind you!!!! I took the 30 shekels to church and had members including my pastor cup their hands and I would drop in the 30 coins, 15 Oz’s. and explain that this was exactly what Judas received to sell out Jesus. Makes quite the impression. Anyway, several of my friends have contacted me lately asking for help to get started stacking! Folks are seeing trouble brewing even with the incongruences of the MSM(I am being nice).
    So now I see that a gold “Freedom Girl” Is available…. I have to have one… I wish I could afford more. I will carry it with me and she will be in good company with my other SBSS coins.
    Chris, I live in North Georgia. I have a gold dredge and belong to a gold mining club. We work hard and recover gold in our spare time…. Can you pan?
    Have you ever heard the saying, “Gold is the money of Kings and Silver the money of Gentlemen?” When I receive my gold Freedom Girl, I am going to be King for a day!!!!
    Bless you brother for all your hard work and dedication….

    • Silver Shield

      Wow what a great story. It is stuff like that that I am happy I do what I do.
      I love the story about the Shekels and that is exactly why I created that coin. To put 30 shekels is someone’s hands and tell them the story can literally change someone’s life forever.
      I love the North Georgia area been looking around Hiawasee and it is even better if gold is still being produced there.
      Keep up the good work and I am sure all the seeds you are planting will yield great results.

      • David

        As one is heading up into the Ga. mountains [before crossing The Appalachian Trail at the highest point in the highway, and the remaining miles to Hiawassee] there is a historical roadside marker saying “this is the site of the first gold rush in America”. Sort of cool to stop along the road and think about that.

  • maxblockm

    Off topic, but have you guys checked out Captain America: The Winter Soldier yet?

    Spoiler Alert

    So basically the movie has “the American spy apparatus” crash and burn, everything’s out on the internet (“Snowden revelations?”)…then, there is an after-movie scene (two of them actually, but perhaps only the first is relevant).

    One character says “SHIELD, HYDRA, they’re two sides of the same coin, that isn’t even a currency any more.” There was some other dialogue that sounded symbolic but I couldn’t take it all in as that line reverberated in my mind. Maybe someone else can supply the other lines?

    Then two (as then un-named) characters were revealed in cages, one of which (turns out to be Quicksilver) is bouncing off the walls of his cage with super-speed…

    Scene 1:

    After the fall of both SHIELD and HYDRA we see Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) in his underground laboratory. His men have the scepter of Loki got hold of, as well as two special prisoners. None other than Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). The superfast Quicksilver bounces from one side of his cell to another, while Scarlet Witch few blocks stacks with her thoughts. Von Strucker proclaims that “The Age of Miracles” is near. And thus we immediately know how mutants are listed in the Marvel movie universe.

    Scene 2:

    We see the Winter Soldier incognito Captain America-exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum. Here he encounters the information about James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes. It plays threatening music, but this Winter Soldier seems indeed to have who he really is and that Captain America was telling the truth.

    We’ll start with the mid-credits sequence, which is the one we expect most people will be talking about.

    What We See: The scene opens on a Hydra facility where a team of scientists are examining Loki’s mind-controlling staff – the one last seen shutting down the wormhole generator in Avengers. Overseeing the action is a man with a monocle and facial scars. Comic fans will recognise him as famous Captain America villain, Baron Strucker. He gloats about the destruction of SHIELD and muses how fortunate it was for Hydra that no-one there truly understood the power of the staff.

    He then turns and walks around a corner into a different room of their facility. Talking with an aide, he wonders if now might be the time to activate “the twins”. The camera spins around to show two jail cells, positioned side-by-side. In the left one, a tall, thin man with white hair is writhing in frustration. His movements are a blur and he jumps around nervously, flitting about the cell in near-instantaneous jitters that imply great speed. In the right hand cell, a dark-haired woman sits on the floor, huddled next to the wall. She seems confused and strung out, but she’s holding both hands out in front of her and there are small blocks levitating between them. A few seconds later, the scene cuts to black.

    What it Means: There are a few interesting things here. The most exciting is that we get our first glimpse of some new characters, particularly Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch, both confirmed characters for Avengers: Age Of Ultron. In the comics, the twin mutants were members of Magneto’s ‘Brotherhood of Evil Mutants’ who eventually reformed and joined the Avengers. Since Fox has the rights to the term ‘Mutant’ (for its X-Men movies) and the character of Magneto it’s a safe bet that they won’t be explicitly connected to that world in Age Of Ultron – so what will we see instead?

    Perhaps, in Age Of Ultron, they’ll be the results of Hydra experiments to create super-powered individuals of their own. Perhaps they’ll be mutants and the movie will skirt around that explanation. Either way, they don’t seem to be good guys at the moment. They might yet escape or reform (they certainly don’t seem particularly compliant with Hydra) but it’s safe to say they won’t be joining the Avengers straight away.

    Interestingly, it also seems that the Scarlet Witch’s powers – famously vague in the comics and defined as ‘hex bolts’ or ‘probability manipulation’ – will be moved closer to conventional telekinesis. Let’s face it, that can only help their cinematic portrayal.

    The next interesting point is the appearance of Baron Strucker, as played by Thomas Kretschmann. Strucker is the some-time head of Hydra whose offensive powers are the result of the Satan’s Claw he wears on one hand. It’s long been known that the character is slated to appear in Age Of Ultron, but it’s not yet clear what capacity that’ll be in if Ultron is going to be the primary antagonist. It certainly seems that he’ll have control of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Will Ultron be his doing too?

    Finally, we return to the matter of Loki’s staff. Between Strucker’s words and the general direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s arc, there’s a strong chance that Loki’s staff contains another of the Infinity Gems – most probably the Mind Gem, given the powers it displays in Avengers. We’ve already seen two confirmed Infinity Gems (The Tesseract from Captain America: The First Avenger, which is probably the Space Gem and the Aether from Thor: The Dark World, which may be the Power Gem) – and we’re fairly sure that the thing Star Lord steals at the start of the Guardians Of The Galaxy trailer might be an Infinity Gem too. With Loki’s staff, that makes four in total. Only two more to go until you’ve got a full Infinity Gauntlet lying around…

    But that’s not all! There’s also a Post-Credits Sequence! This one’s along the lines of what we saw at the end of Thor: The Dark World in setting up the status quo for the sequel rather than trailing the overall direction of the Marvel Universe.

    What We See: We’re back at the Captain America exhibit in the museum – the same one that Rogers visited incognito earlier in the film. This time, it isn’t Cap who’s looking around, but someone else. When we see his face, we realise it’s Bucky. He’s studying the same exhibit Rogers looked at: the one that tells of Bucky and Rogers’ close acquaintance, his capture during the war and his eventual death on a mission with the Howling Commandoes. The visuals fade and the last thing we see are the words ‘Captain America will return in Avengers: Age Of Ultron.’

    What it Means: Given that we knew Bucky was alive at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, why do we care what he’s doing now? Well, this sequence suggests what you may have suspected already. That Cap did get through to him on the Helicarrier. Instead of returning to his masters to be deactivated until he’s needed for another mission, it seems that Bucky has broken his psychological programming and gone searching for answers about who he is. The Winter Soldier is free, and the race is now on between Hydra and Cap to get to him first. Given that, in the comics, Bucky eventually ended up replacing Steve Rogers as Captain America for a time, it’s certainly very interesting to have him walking around the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Especially given that Chris Evans has all but confirmed he’ll be done with the role once Captain America 3 comes out in 2017.

    HYDRA lives on, deep underground and their deadliest attack is yet to be unleashed.

    Glorious Purpose

    Before anything else happens we’re reunited with an old friend – Loki’sspear from The Avengers. Gifted to him by Thanos, the weapon holds some dangerous tech. Don’t forget about its mind control powers, its fiery laser blasts and its semi-sentient actions in The Avengers. This thing is bad news.

    After that we follow the Baron and his companion as they turn their gaze to the other side of the room. And there we have the money shot.

    The Age Of Miracles

    In two separate tanks, either side of each other, dwell The Twins.Dubbed by Von Strucker as ‘horrifying miracles’, the twins are indeed miracles but not ones that we’ve seen in THIS Marvel universe before.

    That’s because The Twins are Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, mutants with exceptional abilities and a very famous father. Good luck waiting to hear Magneto and the word mutant in Avengers 2 though. Fox holds the rights to all things mutant, hence the Baron’s use of the word ‘miracles’.

    But who are these poor caged up test subjects and why are they here? Well, it seems that Von Strucker might just be planning a superhero team-up of his own. One with potentially deadly consequences as these kids are very dangerous and in the wrong hands, evil.

    We see Quicksilver displaying what appears to be super speed, but sadly he can’t run very far. Confined to the small cell, all Quicksilver can do is seemingly speed his way into the walls. Again and again. Yeah I’m pretty sure he’s not here of his own free will. Think of Quicksilver like The Flash, only with a little more character and a little less red in his costume. And yes that is Kick-Ass’ Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver.

    On his right is his sister: Scarlet Witch, a being so powerful, she once (in the comics) removed the latent ability of all mutants in the entire world. Her power is reality bending and manipulating the chances of probability. There’s a good chance she won’t be quite as powerful as her comic book counter part in the Marvel movie universe though. Might make things a little unfair.

    We meet her here demonstrating your standard telekinetic abilities. I’m thinking she’ll be more of the team psychic and less team reality-god. That’s Elizabeth Olsen, little sister to the Olsen Twins and a talented up-and-comer in her own right.

    Expect these two to begin Avengers 2 as antagonists, working under the command of Von Strucker. Maybe a bit of light super-villainy here and there. Eventually though, these guys will see the error of their ways (they always do in the comics) and join The Avengers for a final battle against wayward robot Ultron.

    for months and years you have promoted ONLY SILVER and now all of sudden you change your mind and now INCLUDE GOLD-??????????

    Maybe the old adage is true?? ” Show me a person who never changes their mind and I will show you a person who never corrects their mistakes”

    Confused regardless of the 17 reasons and change of mind.

    I had to do a double take when I saw this post =) This ‘belief system’ that gold or silver will save the world needs to be seen through. Something to think about

  • Michael

    There is nothing wrong with acquiring gold. It has some advantages over silver. Its purchase should be a pragmatic decision as should the purchase of silver or anything else for that matter. If you have excess money you can purchase what you please. Many of us purchase what we please with non excess money. Gold and silver have a place in this world and its economy. Thus, Chris promoting gold is not a problem. Re Jeff S on Alan Watts Youtube link – Alan makes good points, though I do find his pompous affectation hard to bear. But your point, Jeff, that gold and silver won’t save the world, needs attention. No one is claiming that it will save the world. But gold and silver may provide for more stable, less corrupt, more enduring and fairer means of containing a representation of your wealth and for exchange of goods and services now and in the future. What Alan doesn’t get down to is the idea of ownership. There is no use calling money ridiculous. As he says it is just a means to measure which doesn’t make it ridiculous. Measuring is its pragmatic purpose. A friend once said to me, “All ownership is stealing.” This philosophical statement is hard to deny and proof is in the fact we die. We can’t hold onto anything forever and we can’t take it with us. We can use it and be the steward of things on this earth, but ownership is just a dream. If you wish for a fairer world, look for the means to achieve that within your own life. Silver and gold may provide for the fairer means of exchange, but of course that is up to the person.

  • Howhow

    Y in the hell would anyone buy gold right now at 65/1 gold/silver ratio ? If u really want gold u should be buying silver then trade ur silver for gold at a better ratio thereby getting more gold. Only real reason mr silver shield wants u to buy gold right now is cuz he makes commission on he’s sales duh … Stop hating on the dude , everyone is working an angle just don’t b a sheep and blindly follow without thinking !

  • Michael

    It’s true he makes a commission on it but that doesn’t mean it’s a one way benefit. Glibly stating he’s working an angle but saying it’s alright because everyone is doing it is just that: a very thin veneer of excuse covering an insult. I truly don’t think Chris is working an angle. He is genuine in his efforts to create something better.

    Your suggestion of buying silver then trading for gold sounds interesting. At what value would you trade silver for gold?

    • howhow

      They will run out of silver mostlikely my friend. I will have to keep my gold lol but id imagine gold b worth a lot more in real terms. Win win

  • Brent Eamer

    I too was initially taken back when I saw this post. But, after reading the caustic remarks and how Chris handled them, I have no issue. I own both, albiet at lesser ratio, since Gold is more expensive. I am fortunate to accumulate it at a 1/10t of an once at a time in a Vault account, then I exchange to physical when I get to one full ounce. It has taken me four months to afford once ounce. So there is room for both in my plan. Also, as Chris and others have mentioned, you can swap your silver for gold when the ratios become favourable

    Good work Chris.

    Chris, you might find this very interesting. I’m a member at the TF Metals Report site and someone there attended one of those Jim Sinclair get togethers. And according to this guy’s notes, Sinclair was *much* more positive toward silver than he’s been previously. Here’s a quote from the attendee’s notes:

    “Thoughts on Gold and Silver

    Jim thinks you should own some…. J

    -Silver will break out first in the next move in gold. He expects that move to be significant. Silver is for trading. It will be exciting. His stack is 75% in PM’s gold and of that 75% 25% is Silver and 75% is gold

    –Jim thinks this period we have been in is uncannily like 73-76 in the last gold bull market

    -Gold silver ratio going to be back at historical 10:1 in 2020. ”

    This is quite a bit more sensible than the weird, ambiguous anti-silver remarks of his that have been quoted before. It’s especially interesting to hear that 25% of his own PM holdings are in silver. Earlier remarks of his might have led you to believe he owned none.
