Walter Burien’s Market Rants – CAFR1

Walter Burien: “I have learned to pick points after asking myself: Where would they push it to if the commercials and money manager boys wanted to screw everybody? The $16.85 mark was hit a few days ago and breached today with a $16.64 low set early in the morning. In the time it took to write this article, as of 8:45 AM AZ TIME it is at $16.90.”

I have not put out a Market Rants Post for over a year.

Today though I see a reason to do so.

US Dollar IndexWEEKLY CHART 5-YEARS  and  MONTHLY CHART 25-YEARS

SILVER –  WEEKLY CHART 5-YEARS  and MONTHLY CHART 25-YEARS


As of this writing the US Dollar index is at 96.825 and Silver at 16.815

First and foremost, the Dollar index over the last several years appeared to be held by the Feds at the 82.50 mark. If it went below, intervention brought it back. If it went above, Fed intervention backed off and it returned to that level.

Well, in the last few weeks the Dollar index has been picking up steam as can be seen by the current price. Precious metals in the US are priced in Dollars so as the dollar goes up, the price of metals is pressured to go down…

Khazar Empire, Illuminati and New World Order

Socio-Economics History Blog

  • This is a video lecture by Jack Otto of Forbidden Knowledge fame. He gives his understanding on the hidden history of the Khazar empire, the Illuminati, banking cartel and their links to the New World Order.
  • The Khazars were a Turkic people who originated in Central Asia. The Khazar empire is located north of the Caucasus mountains region.khzar-empire
  • In the book The Thirteenth Tribe, Ashkenazi Jew Arthur Koestler documented the history :

    This book traces the history of the ancient Khazar Empire, a major but almost forgotten power in Eastern Europe, which in A.D. 740 converted to Judaism. Khazaria, a conglomerate of Aryan Turkish tribes, was finally wiped out by the forces of Genghis Han, but evidence indicates that the Khazars themselves migrated to Poland and formed the craddle of Western (Ashkenazim) Jewry…

    The Khazars’ sway extended from the Black sea to the Caspian, from the Caucasus…

Tom Woods talks about depreciation of the Revolutionary War-era Continental currency without mentioning British counterfeiting

Exposing Faux Capitalism

I listened to all of Tom Woods’ September 24, 2014 half hour presentation on the depreciation of the Revolutionary War-era Continental currency, fully expecting him to never mention the massive British counterfeiting, and true to my expectations, he didn’t!

This is yet another example of why I am critical of the Austrian School of Economics and the claims of some of its top proponents. At best, this was a sloppy unacademic omission by a Harvard graduate and Columbia University PhD holder who is more than proud to tout himself as a New York Times bestselling author, and at worst, a deliberate omission in order to convince his uncritical audience of his case that the Continental currency and all paper money is inherently massively inflationary and fatally flawed in relation to gold as money.

As I have discussed my radio program before, G. Edward Griffin, author of The…

The gold double standard

An insidious consequence of a 100% gold reserve standard with compound interest is that those who own the gold will eventually control all the money supply.

Exposing Faux Capitalism

Gold Bars

On liberty-themed radio shows and sites, one often hears the claim that fiat currencies don’t last long, and in some generous but inaccurate cases, that a fiat currency has never lasted more than a couple hundred years.

The English tally sticks were an example of a fiat currency that lasted more than 500 years. Before you say that it wasn’t a currency because it didn’t circulate widely, how is circulation between the citizens of England and the government not widespread circulation?

The gold double standard is this: pointing to examples of fiat currencies failing, and completely overlooking examples of failed gold standards. The argument is that it was government’s fault for historical instances of gold standards failing. Ah, but isn’t that the same blame foisted upon most fiat currencies as well?

One aspect of the gold double standard is the use of word association of fiat currency with fractional…

Washington, D.C. Terror Alert—National Zoo Attack Trending

SWITZERLAND, Basel — Based on breaking news and events, it appears that the Obama administration (at the behest of the CIA) is plotting a “domestic” or “jihad”-related terror attack in Washington, D.C. Although state-sponsored terrorists could target the U.S. Capitol, the U.S. Supreme Court or the White House (all of which have been targeted in 2014), they will most likely attack the National Zoo.
