Guest post by Gold Silver Worlds.
Michael MacDonald and Christopher Whitestone did a superb Q&A with GoldSilverWorlds. In their book “The Silver Bomb” (available on Amazon.com), they wrote about their views on the world and the markets. They have summarized it and enriched with recent facts and figures.
The markets are completely bought and paid for, corrupt, and manipulated … “a farce”. We are in a corruption bubble, the largest corruption bubble the world has ever seen in modern history and perhaps in all history. This is the first time that the world has been united within instant communication, instant information, instant deposit or receipt of funds into any bank account or financial institution. Michael says: “I believe that we are already a one world order. I actually think we are already there, electronically certainly. I also think that a lot of the debates, wars and conflicts are manufactured, very similar to the presidential debates which are also manufactured. I believe we live in a one-world system, which financially is already completely manipulated.”
We don’t live in a free market. We haven’t lived in a free market for decades, if not since 1913. We have the most powerful agency in the world, the Federal Reserve, setting the interest rates and the value of the world’s reserve currency. Everything that stems from that is built upon deceit and fraud. This doesn’t bode well for the entire financial system as a whole and right now, we are seeing the ramifications of that deceit.
We are in the lengthening of this financial market topping. A lot of things are happening that point to any one of several large enough dominos falling over which is going to have a splash and pullover effect. Within three years we are going to see this farce imploding. Michael thinks that we will have something completely different and unrecognizable to what we currently have.
Some thoughts by Biderman.
In my opinion, the US needs a new constitutional convention. The first constitutional convention occurred in 1787. The government created back then has obviously done fantastically well. However, if we continue forward in the direction we are headed, what lies ahead is an almost certain major economic calamity.
In last week’s July 4 video I said that the representative form of government set up in 1787 is not working today and has been taken over by the special interest groups. If you doubt that, read convicted lobbyist, Jack Abramoff’s Capitol Punishment, The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption. If as Abramoff claims it no longer matter who wins elections, because the special interest groups control, and in some cases own, the representatives; well then our current form of representative government, has to be changed before calamity hits.

Spain is falling further into the abyss. As we have been arguing for the past months, the bail out of Spain should be the point of focus for now, not Greece. In order to understand the Spanish economy, one must understand the Spanish mentality, and this can’t be derived from financial researcher and their excel sheets. The Spanish bubble has burst, but still the country lives in great denial. This is the single most important factor prolonging the crisis. Meanwhile, the corruption is reaching new dimension, where the “clean” corruption of stealing money has evolved into a situation where the law is twisted. One of the better pieces on the great denial of the imploding Spanish economy, by El Pais.
Four years into the ever-darkening tunnel of recession, growing numbers of Spaniards are losing whatever faith they may have had in their political parties and the country’s institutions. A new survey by pollsters Metroscopia shows that for 90 percent of people, the economic crisis is far and away their most pressing concern; the same percentage also believe that they have been abandoned by politicians of all stripes, accusing them of acting out of self-interest. In just seven months, since October 2011 to May, the number of people who believe that the current political system, with all its faults, is the best that the country has known has fallen from 72 percent to 56 percent.
Multi-billion-euro bailouts to the banks who caused the mess we’re in, along with myriad recent corruption cases and an ever-worsening unemployment rate, have robbed the country’s politicians of what little credibility they may have enjoyed until the crisis kicked in in 2008, since when unemployment has risen to one in four of the workforce, and millions of families have seen their living standards fall sharply, and tens of thousands more have been made homeless. According to the International Monetary Fund, Spain is living through a lost decade, and will not recover the GDP levels of 2008 until 2018. Who is to blame, if not our politicians?
