Scarcity of Gold in Mexico!

I have just spoken with Mr. Calles, at Banco Azteca. Mr. Calles purchases silver one-ounce “Libertad” coins for sale to the public through the offices of Banco Azteca, throughout Mexico, and thus he is in contact with the Mexican Mint.

After a year, Bundesbank repatriates only 37 of 700 tonnes of gold

Only 37 tons?????? meanwhile China has scooped up a couple thousand tons!!!!!
While Germany's Bundesbank announced a year ago that it would repatriate most of the 700 tonnes of gold it has vaulted with foreign central banks, the Berlin newspaper Bild reported yesterday that only 37 tonnes have been repatriated so far:


This is incredible. While discussing how the London vaults have been emptied and the gold has made it's way to china all they can think about is how the bull run in the price has ended.

Swiss gold refiners have struggled to provide 40 tonnes of gold-a-week for China!

Secretive Swiss gold refiners have been working flat out all year to supply China with physical gold, at times struggling to find the gold supplies required to fulfill ballooning orders.According to this highly reputable source the Swiss are really scraping the bottom of the barrel now to find the gold to meet demand from China. In 37 years this refinery boss has never before experienced this problem. Some of the bars being refined are from the 1960s, from the back of the vaults.

Yuan Passes Euro as 2nd-Most Used Trade-Finance Currency!

The currency had an 8.66 percent share of letters of credit and collections in October, compared with 6.64 percent for the euro, Swift said in a statement today. China, Hong Kong,Singapore, Germany and Australia were the top users of yuan in trade finance, according to the Belgium-based financial-messaging platform.  The yuan had the fourth-largest share of global trade finance in January 2012 with 1.89 percent, while the euro’s was the second-biggest at 7.87 percent, Swift said.

BREAKING: Canadian Maple Leaf Sales Q1-Q3 Already Surpass 2012 Total

As the Fed and Central Banks continue to pump huge amounts of liquidity into the market, investors have been buying record amounts of Canadian Silver Maples.  Demand for the Canadian Gold & Silver Maples hit a record in 2011, but then declined in 2012 as investors started to believe that the monetary authorities had the financial system back under control — an illusion that will cost them dearly in the future.
After the huge take-down of the price of gold and silver during April of this year, demand for the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins picked up to record levels.  Not only were Silver Maple sales strong in the second quarter due to the extremely low price of silver, but demand was even greater during the third quarter… hitting a new all time record.
If we look at the chart below, we can see just how much sales of the Canadian Silver Maples have increased compared to the same period last year.
Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Sales Q3 2012
In the first nine months of 2012 total Silver Maple sales were only 12.8 million compared to the 19.7 million sold so far in 2013.  This is a huge 54% increase y.o.y at nearly 7 million more Silver Maples sold.
Again, the third quarter sales of Silver Maples hit a record of 6.7 million compared to 4.8 million in the same period last year.  This is the same phenomenon taking place with Silver Eagle sales.  Sales of Silver Eagles increased in the third quarter at 11.0 million compared to 10.8 million in Q2 2013.
Furthermore, Gold Maple Leaf sales in the third quarter are still quite strong even though demand has dropped off compared to the previous quarter.
Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Sales Q3 2012
Sales of Gold Maples are up a staggering 85% in 2013 at 867,000 ounces compared to the first nine months in 2012 when only 468,000 were sold.  Actually, Gold Maple sales are holding up much better than Gold Eagle sales.
Gold Maple vs Gold Eagle Sales (ounces)
Gold Maple Q1 = 269,000
Gold Maple Q2 = 403,000
Gold Maple Q3 = 195,000
Total Q1-Q3 = 867,000
Gold Eagle Q1 = 292,500
Gold Eagle Q2 = 336,000
Gold Eagle Q3 = 75,000
Total Q1-Q3 = 703,000
Here we can see that Canadian Gold Maples sold 195,000 oz during the third quarter compared to 75,000 oz of Gold Eagles.  So, in the first nine months of 2013, Gold Maples have sold 23% more (164,000 oz) than Gold Eagles.

Gold & Silver Maples Sales Already Surpass 2012 Totals

Demand for the Gold & Silver Maple Leaf coins have been so strong in the first three-quarters of 2013 that they have already beat the total figures for 2012:
Canadian Gold & Silver Maple Sales Q3 vs 2012
Total Silver Maple Leaf sales in the first nine months of 2013 were 19.7 million, surpassing the total 18.1 million for 2012.  In addition, Gold Maple sales are already 12% higher at 867,000 oz compared to 772,000 oz for the total in 2012.
If this strong sales trend continues, we may see another ALL TIME RECORD in Silver Maple sales in 2013.  In 2011, the Royal Canadian Mint sold 23.1 million Silver Maples which is only 3.4 million more than has been sold in the first three-quarters of 2013.
I would imagine we are going to see at least an additional 4.5-5 million Silver Maples sold in the last quarter which would bring the total for 2013 to be 24.5-25 million.  I don’t believe Gold Maple sales in 2013 will surpass their record of 1,150.285 set in 2011.  We would have to see more than 284,000 oz of Gold Maple sold in the remaining quarter of 2013 to beat this record.
This just goes to show how much more investors are buying Silver Maples & Eagles compared to their gold cousins… the Gold Maples & Eagles.
I believe silver will outperform gold in percentage terms as an investment and store of value in the next several years.  As I have mentioned several times in prior articles, the Fed and monetary authorities can print money, but they cannot print Silver, Gold or Barrels of Oil.
As gold revalues much higher in the future, most of the public will only be able to purchase silver as its price will be more afordable.  Thus, the demand for silver will be much greater than gold, pushing its value up to levels that the present disgruntled precious metal investors would believe impossible.

Lindsey Williams - 10-22-13 -- What is coming down for America -- get ready now!!!

The Truth About the Health Care Bills - Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.
To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.
The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.
However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.
The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.
The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.
This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, in direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, of all of your personal healthcare information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.
If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However , that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.
So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though.
The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;
The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.
I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea.
This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.
For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

The moves comes just after the U.S. Congress thrashed out a last-minute deal to raise its $17 trillion debt limit last week, following a 16-day partial government shutdown and fears that the world's largest economy could default on its debt.

Democratic Republic of Congo Prime Minister Matata Ponyo said his government plans to tax mining companies in local currency in an attempt to “drastically reduce” dollarization in the economy within three years.
The DRC franc has been stable for four years and “we don’t have any justification for people to pay taxes in U.S. dollars,” Ponyo said in an interview on Oct. 11 in Washington, speaking through an interpreter. “We are in the process to de-dollarize our economy and bring people to use the local currency more and more.”

China Imports Over 100 Tons Of Gold Through Hong Kong For The 4th Straight Month!!!

People have been predicting that imports of gold into China would slow down – well August figures suggest they may have, but only by a minute 3 tonnes compared with a month earlier, and the country remains on track to comfortably exceed 1,000 tonnes of known net gold imports for the year, with a total of 723 tonnes imported via Hong Kong for the first eight months.
Extrapolating this over the full year would give a total import figure (via Hong Kong alone) of 1,084.5 tonnes.  On the evidence of the past six months’ import figures, the full year total could be quite a bit higher if recent momentum is sustained – and there’s no real sign of it slowing down, at least not yet – it seems more likely that the full year figure could well end up at more like 1,150 tonnes.

As we approach the 100 year anniversary of the creation of the Federal Reserve, it is absolutely imperative that we get the American people to understand that the Fed is at the very heart of our economic problems.  It is a system of money that was created by the bankers and that operates for the benefit of the bankers.  The American people like to think that we have a “democratic system”, but there is nothing “democratic” about the Federal Reserve.  Unelected, unaccountable central planners from a private central bank run our financial system and manage our economy.

Gold Imports to China From Hong Kong Climb on Physical Demand!!

Gold shipments to China from Hong Kong increased in July as importers took advantage of local prices that were an average 2.1 percent higher than global markets and as mainland investors bought jewelry and coins.
Net imports, after deducting flows from China into Hong Kong, were 113 metric tons, from 101 tons a month earlier, according to calculations by Bloomberg. Mainland buyers purchased 129 tons in July, including scrap, compared with 113 tons in June, data from the Hong Kong government showed today.

July 2013 Silver Imports In India Are The Highest In 5 Years.

AHMEDABAD: Silver imports recorded a staggering 258.65% growth at 857 metric tonnes (MT) in the first four months (April-July) of 2013-14 as compared to 239 MT by July 2012.

Gold replaces narcotics as the biggest smuggled item in India!

The recent series of actions by the Indian government along with  tax hike on bullion imports have created acute shortage for gold in domestic markets. Estimates released by the country’s Finance Ministry have signaled alarming rise in illegal gold imports to the country.
The Bombay Bullion Association has stated that the tighter import curbs by the government have resulted in a huge gap between supply and demand for the precious metal. This huge gap is being partly filled by the illegal traffickers who buy the gold overseas at a cheaper rate and sells it to domestic jewelers or bullion agents by evading tax.

Saving Real Money By James Turk

Up until the late 1960s, it was considered prudent for everyone to have some savings. By forgoing consumption, savings gave the ability to consume more at a later date through the accumulation of interest income.
This result is similar to what one hopes to achieve with an investment, but savings and investments should not be confused. A person uses money to make an investment, whereas saving is the process of accumulating money itself. Thus, you put your money at risk when making an investment, which hopefully will become a wealth-creating asset. In contrast, savings are meant to be riskless.

China Imports A New Record 223.5 Tons Of Gold In March 2013

After the gold rush is thought to have waned, and the two tons of gold American Eagle coins sold by the U.S. Mint (in one day alone), has faded from the headlines, we find the simply shocking news: 223.519 metric tons (mt) of gold was imported into mainland China for the month of March. Compare that to the 51.3mt and 97mt imported in January and February, respectively. When was the last time China even came close to importing gold on this scale?

Federal Judge Dismisses Silver Manipulation Lawsuit Against JP Morgan

A federal judge has dismissed a class-action lawsuit claiming J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. (JPM) manipulated prices in the silver market between June 2007 and October 2010.
In an order posted Monday, U.S. District Judge Robert Patterson said a group of silver investors did show J.P. Morgan and its traders had the power to influence the silver market, but didn't prove the bank manipulated prices or took action to "cause artificial prices to exist" on CME Group Inc.'s (CME) benchmark Comex silver futures contract.

Do Western Central Banks Have Any Gold Left???

By: Eric Sprott & David Baker

Somewhere deep in the bowels of the world’s Western central banks lie vaults holding gargantuan piles of physical gold bars… or at least that’s what they all claim. The gold bars are part of their respective foreign currency reserves, which include all the usual fiat currencies like the dollar, the pound, the yen and the euro.

Panel moves to make gold, silver coins legal tender in Arizona

PHOENIX - Arizonans who fear the federal government will make their folding money worthless may soon be able to substitute privately minted gold and silver coins.
The Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday took the first steps to making such coins legal tender in Arizona. SB 1439 would give them the same legal status as the bills and coins authorized by Congress.
Nothing in the proposal by Sen. Chester Crandell, R-Heber, would force anyone to actually accept these coins as payment for any debt. Their use would be voluntary.

Welfare recipients take out cash at strip clubs, liquor stores and X-rated shops

They’re on the dole — and watching the pole.
Welfare recipients took out cash at bars, liquor stores, X-rated video shops, hookah parlors and even strip clubs — where they presumably spent their taxpayer money on lap dances rather than diapers, a Post investigation found.
A database of 200 million Electronic Benefit Transfer records from January 2011 to July 2012, obtained by The Post through a Freedom of Information request, showed welfare recipients using their EBT cards to make dozens of cash withdrawals at ATMs inside Hank’s Saloon in Brooklyn; the Blue Door Video porn shop in the East Village; The Anchor, a sleek SoHo lounge; the Patriot Saloon in TriBeCa; and Drinks Galore, a liquor distributor in The Bronx

Sales of American Eagle silver coins by the U.S. Mint jumped to a record this month on increased demand for an alternative to currencies as the U.S. central bank presses on with unprecedented stimulus.

The figure compares with the 1.635 million ounces sold in December, according to mint data.
