    Supraconductivity uses tons and tons of silver in about ALL type of energy technologies. Not just solar ! Nobody talks about supraconductivity technology. Silver is not just used in solar. Supraconductive electrical transmission lines or the storing devices of electricity on wind energy farms need tons of it to function. Even nuclear energy needs it. The control rods are made in part of silver. Silver is everywhere. You can even use today as replacement in catalytic converters.

    He who controls the supply and price of Silver controls global electronics.

    The 21st century way of life depends on Silver.

    It is more rare than oil.

    Without silver the world would effectively return to the 19th century.

    So now you see why the likes of JPM & the LBMA corruptly control and manipulate it, and why decent people must take that power back!……………Z

    hopefully silver has cleared out all the weaklings thinking 50 was the top.

    needs to blast through 50 and make it a bottom rather than a top.

  13. 8Ball says:

    Come on Max, quit BS’ng everyone… Don’t you know that Moriarty over at 321Gold just said that there is more Silver around than there ever was?

  14. Capt. Ray says:

    Spoke with an artist yesterday. He makes wall paintings.

    The only example I know that he made is in little river (aka little Haiti). On the corner of 2nd ave and 79th street he, together with some school kids (something annoyed the hell out of him) made an honor to Haiti. This wall mural includes a huge periodic table of the elements.

    “What I don’t understand, I said, is why does the lady in the picture block off Ag (silver) with her head. Of all the elements, why silver? Who came up with that?”
    Of course he, at first, didn’t quite understand my point. Then I explained. I started off by saying;
    “This is how we get oil; someone types in numbers, let’s say one trillion. Then we send these digital dollars to an Arab king, who then sends oil back.” Again: we type in numbers, they send stuff! The moment they refuse to go along; we bomb. Simple as that.

    As for silver or gold, not that it’s our salvation in the long run, you can’t get up and “create” a trillion on a Monday morning… You either got it, or you don’t. Keeps things fair.

    With paper money, as you know, someone gives the order, every day, to make some more. And we, we have to work for it. And you know what? Every dollar in circulation is owed back to the system in four fold. It’s a slave system. You can never pay it back. By design. Once you accept the dollar you commit yourself to a system you can never pay back. If you opt out, you’ll get bombed… And where do you spend your dollars? The grocery store, right… Who owns the farms and everything else? The people in charge of the dollar system, the banks! Since you owe them all your dollars from the get-go, no matter what. That’s the system. It’s like buying at the plantation store!

    There is a way out. Silver! Again; why is the lady, a freed slave, blocking silver with her head? That’s an insult.”

    I said a lot more… He was really engaged.

    He learned something! (picture 5 shows it, but painting is still in the making)

  15. Youri Carma says:


    Listening to Bernankesans interview is a sheer waste of time. I never listen to these guys like Bernakesan and little Timmy.

    I mean they’re still discussing ‘double dip’ or not LOlz. Well the economy dips the way it wants

    btw I can tell you what they are gonna say:

    – No rate hikes – read my lips
    – Keep opaque about QEIII for now (which they will have to implement or they call it extension of QEII)

  19. ZORRO LONDON says:

    @ Youri C

    With respect, you and I may not dig Mr.Bernanksteins message, but the markets do, and react to it.

    PMs price already reacting in advance of his cloak and daggers dissertation.

    How nuts is that. Some people trying to bet in anticipation.

    By tmw the $50 sound barrier may well be broken??…………………….Z

    Love wall paintings had an artist making a wall painting in my house once.

  24. Dan says:

    They can prop up the paper game forever, infact theoretically they can play paper silver SLV comex without any silver even existing, they could even create a fantasy metal that doesnt exist on the periodic table and start trading it and making profits and loss’s in just the same way they do with silver…. and that is the truth of the matter, thats how unreal our economy is.

    So the only way to break paper silver is when industry cannot possibly obtain silver for the paper price and nowhere near it because the industry is real. So thats what we need to do, buy physical and distrubt the industrial supply to expose the paper market.

    There is improvement tough cause they used to write it with a question mark which has gone now – so not ‘Britain ‘on the edge of a double dip recession?’

  28. Dark Markets says:

    @ youri carma: fantastic Auerbach (former Fed director, and current Fed CRITIC) video, thanks!

    This video illustrates the CRUX of the matter: the Fed NEED NOT be INHERENTLY EVIL – although the (r cabal’s front; money-from-thin-air central bank) Fed DID ENGINEER the Great Depression
    (by CONTRACTING the money supply, when a timely EXPANSION of M2 was needed; typical rothschild’s “CRUSH the ENEMY” financial tactic) –
    they in contrast (the Fed/ US banking system) DID also provided the framework that FINANCED America’s great industrial output & production that led to victory in WWII
    (and would finance the 10,000 nuke warheads and fleets of missles, bombers, ships, & supply systems, and conventional armies during Cold War years, which were also the “American Century” BOOM years.)

    ___ The Fed WAS KEPT HONEST during the post-WWII Cold War era by “LIBERAL” politics, which then sought to provide SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE, enviro regulations (so, you know, people don’t DIE of CANCER like they did at Love Canal), AFFORDABLE higher education, and UNION SCALE JOBS, with PROTECTED pensions, home values, and savings (FDIC, and especially GLASS-STEAGALL – community/retail banks SHALL NOT BE CASINO CHIPS for RICH, LEVERAGED banksters.)

    Unfortunately, President Lyndon Johnson is NOT APPRECIATED by “liberals” (becasue so many “Liberals” were DRAFTED by Johnson’s Vietnam War draft and HATED him for that) – which means that VERY FEW SUCCESSES of the “Liberal” era are well remembered today, they have NO visible champion. (Kennedy died in ’63, Carter was a 1 term; Clinton was overshadowed by his sex scandals and his Rubin/Summers neo-con SABOTAGE policies, which is what I’m trying to get at here!)

    but clearly, one of THE GREATEST benefits of the “LIBERAL ERA”

    THIS “liberal” CONSTANT POKING & PRODDING at the Fed, is what kept the national money supply STABLE and PRODUCTIVE, instead of allowing bankers to HOARD __our__ money… and CONTRACT our economy….

    …. AS they did (the criminal, treasonous louts!) during the Great Depression, and AS they are DOING TODAY !!

    Deception and Abuse at the Fed: Henry B. Gonzalez Battles Alan Greenspan’s Bank

    (PS: I would guess that’s its NO COINCIDENCE, that U Texas is THE FIRST major endowment to DEMAND PHYSICAL PM’s to HEDGE against the damn Bernank/Fed fiat dollars: BOTH Reactionary Right-Wing UT “conservatives” AND “Liberals” like Prof. Auerbach, DON’T WANT TO SEE their university’s wealth go up in Bernanke/Fed fiat SMOKE – they BOTH now know what is going on, and are in a position to stand up to Bush & Obama’s (greenspan, rubin, summers, paulson, geithner, bernanke) “of, by, and for GS & JPM” economy killers.)

  29. flicks says:

    I dont fully understand why Tarpley goes on about Obama on this issue every week . You know his a puppet and therefore meaningless to changing anything. We need people to remove their money from banks and buy silver. So can you get on the case Webster please, sweetie that you are .

  30. Youri Carma says:


    Why does a liar or a Junky always say they are honest people and somebody who is honest doesn’t?


    Timmy: “We will never embrace a strategy of trying to weaken our currency to try to gain economic advantage.”

  31. Youri Carma says:


    It’s a fake. Probably a mockup of his sisters who was born there.

    Obama spend a lot of money on preventing Journalists getting his real birth certificate in Kenya. Why would he do that? The answer is clear. he was born in Kenya.

  32. LuzazuL says:

    Off topic. Guys, do you remember our earlier endeavor to move our money from big banks into local community banks here in the USA? I just wanted you to know that this, for people like myself who divide their life by various countries (including their financial life), might pose (it does pose) some difficulties. Here in the USA I had closed my BofA accounts and moved to a small local bank. I now learn that this bank has no IBAN for my accounts and that all my international transactions pass through the big banks anyway!!! Apart from the fact that I pay huge wire fees both to send USD from abroad to the USA and to accept USD in — while I still can’t pay goods and services in the USA with a Maestro card. I wish I could start paying my groceries with barter (my silver is physically not in the USA). Any tips on how to go about this, how to function? I need help to think.

  33. flicks says:

    Youri – but does it matter – real or not ? His just a puppet signing what ever the bankers tell him to sign . We need the people to act . Buying silver is easy for most people to do and we need Webster to come to the party on this. He can come and implement his 5 point plan after.

  34. flicks says:

    Luzazul – lead a different life. And I know that’s real difficult to do. With a bank account they have you by the balls. I have no bank account and at first I did a lot of stuff via family and a few friends now its only occasionally – kinda adapted, dont even have a mobile phone or own a car but I do borrow one to drive and get painting supplies, clothes and visit friends but only within about 5 miles.

    In light of the release of Obama’s purported birth certificate, Alex talks with activist attorney Philip Berg, who filed a complaint in federal district court in 2008 against then Democratic Party presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama alleging that he was born actually in Mombasa, Kenya. Alex also talks with author, researcher, and radio host Webster Tarpley about Obama’s birth certificate. Tarpley is the author of Barack H. Obama: The Unauthorized Biography and Obama: The Postmodern Coup – Making of a Manchurian Candidate.

    Troy James @ Silver Keiser sent me an order of Maple Leafs
    In less than two weeks …go figure.
    He promised to send me more one oz Keisers.
    I dont think of it as spending money on coins like my father says.
    I’m covering my ass in my old age with shinny stuff.
    At the local boot sale this week I found a one oz Isle of Man coin with a Manx cat stamped on the back.
    A Silver Pussy.
    I paid spot.

  39. Harry says:

    @Poote: good for you.
    Them simply refunding an order takes weeks, months and still counting. That combined with the gulag casino model for their `auction` system makes me think again.

  40. Poote says:

    @ Harry
    They have been beat hard here.
    I just want to report they done good on my Maple Leafs.
    I got a big bag of junk silver that I am counting on to pay off my second home in the Smokies.
    When Silver gets to 200 per oz.
    I think it can happen.

    flicks> Lead a different life. And I know that’s real difficult to do. With a bank account they have you by the balls.

    Totally by the balls. I do envy your tabula rasa approach not just because of your independent stand but also bc I believe in ecological, local relationships. Somehow I made myself “available” to be had by the balls when I thought about graduate studies in the USA at the end of the past century, when all seemed like international fraternity and, geographically speaking, all domestic. Anyhow, at the moment I must pay utility bills, car insurance, etc. in the USA, airline tickets cross-atlantic often, I must drive around a 10-year old child, the groceries are too far for walk or bike in New Jersey, sometimes I get money outside the USA that I have no choice but to use here… international divorces are a mess, especially with children and anal retentive judges who think the rest of the world is a terroristic menace and cannot conceive of a child living two years with each parent. I would need to draw an air-tight plan before I took the plunge you suggest. But I want to take a plunge!
