The Great Commodities Heist

As with all of the other intellectually bankrupt schemes from this cabal of criminal governments, this, too, is destined to fail. There are only two possible outcomes. The first and more hopeful scenario is that the commodity producers mimic OPEC and broadly organize into their own cartel(s). There can be no justification for allowing the "market" to determine prices for their commodities now that the manipulation of those markets has reached a new order of magnitude in its brazen absurdity. Instead, commodity prices would be dictated to importing nations much like OPEC was able to do back in the 1970's.

The other scenario is that the commodity-producing nations simply allow themselves to continue to be victimized. In that scenario, the fraudulent suppression of commodity prices curtails new supply/development in these vital sectors. This leads to critical shortages in numerous commodity markets-- and even higher long-term prices as a direct result of the current, fraudulent manipulation of markets. It is precisely the scenario which occurred in the silver market, where driving the price of silver to a 600-year low (in real dollars) has led to the total destruction URL: of global silver stockpiles, and a ten-fold increase in the price of silver.

The final point to be made is to once again rebut the lies from governments and the media propaganda-machine which blame "speculators" for high commodities prices. This is absolutely and unequivocally false.

By definition, "speculation" involves gambling in something where the outcome is uncertain. Conversely, investing in commodities, when it is the explicit economic policy of our governments to drive-up commodity prices as fast as possible, is not "speculation."

In fact it is the exact opposite of speculation. It is savers who have been denied any other safe place to store their wealth who are attempting to protect that wealth by sheltering it in hard assets that cannot be debauched by the printing presses of the banksters.

Any attack on so-called "speculators" is every bit as fraudulent as the current manipulation of commodities markets. The fact that the mainstream media is universal in its own bias against "speculators" and "hoarders" is conclusive proof that it is also complicit in this commodities manipulation scheme.
