2019 Best Year for Precious Metals Since 2010 – Craig Hemke

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)

Financial writer and precious metals expert Craig Hemke says the reason you are seeing the wild markets and rising gold prices is all attributed to the Fed. It is in a horrible position. Hemke explains, “I don’t think ‘panicked’ is the right word because that means they are running around with their hair on fire terrified. I think they realize the corner into which they painted themselves. They are trying to mitigate the damage as much as they can. . . . The smartest thing the Fed can do right now at the next Fed meeting (June 18 & 19) is to cut the Fed Funds Rate by 50 basis points. They could at least kind of get the yield curve flat again, and not leave it so it looks like you are definitely headed into a recession. (Fed Head) Powell is not going to do that because it will look like he’s doing what Trump is telling him to do. . . .He’s probably going to cut by a quarter point. . . . There is also a pretty good chance he does nothing. . . . The reason why interest rates all along that curve are going lower and lower is because money all around the world sees we all are headed into a recession.”

Hemke says confidence in central banks is going to crash right along with the global economy. Hemke contends, “Now, this next time when the economy crashes, which it will inevitably will, they’ll be exposed for the charlatans that they are, stringing everybody along, pretending like they’ve got it under control, confidence in the central bank is going to crash. This means confidence in fiat currency is going to crash, and the only real alternative to fiat currency is sound money and that’s gold. That’s the first big part of why it’s different this time. The other big part is just the math. We are up to $22 trillion in debt versus $10 trillion back in 2009. . . . The deficit through 2029 is $1 trillion a year, and that is under a forecast of 3% economic growth. You are not going to get 3% economic growth. When it’s 1% or 0%, then your tax receipts fall dramatically. Then your deficit explodes.”

Hemke goes on to say, “So, this idea that the Fed can just keep doing what they are doing and things can just keep marching along–no. We are finally at the end of the charade. It’s lasted a lot longer than I thought it could. . . . Now, in 2019, we are right back to where we were in 2010. This is vitally important for people to understand. Eventually, gold is going to break out this year. It’s going to go above $1,360 and the whole world is going to figure this out, and prices are going to accelerate. People who are not buying it now are going to get left behind. . . . Once the demand for all these dollars starts to fall off and disappear, well, those dollars are still out there, and they are all going to come back here to our shores. That’s when you start to get this runaway or hyperinflation because you’ve got so many more dollars than you have demand for dollars. That lessens the value of the dollar and goods go up in cost. . . . The idea you could get 20% inflation is certainly plausible and feasible. . . . Nothing has proven more effective in history to preserve wealth than gold and silver—nothing! . . . . 2019 will be the best year for precious metals since 2010.”

    Regarding gold and silver, perhaps by spring of 2020 we will see interesting events occur regarding Comex. This is from the Nostradamus expert at http://www.theageofdesolation.com


    Nostradamus Quatrain III-5
    Pres, loing defaut de deux grands luminaires
    Qui suruiendra entre l’Auril & Mars.
    O quel cherté! mais deux grands debonaires
    Par terre & mer secourront toutes pars.

    Nostradamus Quatrain III-5
    Shortly after the default of the great luminaries [gold and silver]
    Which will occur between April and March.
    What loss! But two great debonair ones
    By land and sea bring relief [to] all parts.

    For every 1 ounce of gold, there are 542 paper claims. Nostradamus predicts that those oversold gold and silver contracts will cause the COMEX to default.

    I believe that the “two great debonair ones” are Russia and China. Both countries continue to reinforce the economies with physical possession of tons of gold and silver. America supposedly has over 8000 tons while Russia and China have over 1600 and 1800 tons respectively.

    However, Nostradamus clearly predicts that the United States sold off its gold reserves.


    • Anthony Australia

      JC, nice take on Nostradamus, reminding us of his valuable work.

    • MCasey

      Nostradamus Prophecy: Quatrain 8, 28
      Les simulacres d’or & argent enflez,
      Qu’apres le rapt au lac furent gettez
      Au desouvert estaincts tous & troublez.
      Au marbre script prescript intergetez.

      Imitation [certificates] gold and silver inflated,
      which after the theft were thrown into the lake,
      at the discovery that all is exhausted and dissipated by the debt.
      All scrips and bonds will be wiped out.

    • paul ...

      JC … Spot gold priced in US dollars has been in a 30 degree bull market up-trending slope since 2016 … if the uptrend steepens … to say 60 degrees … gold could reach levels in excess of $7500 dollars per ounce by 2024 … and silver at a 25 to 1 ratio would then be selling for $300 dollars per ounce!! … https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/chart3-3.png

    • Pat

      Interesting site that you linked. Thank you.

  3. William Stanley

    Mr. Hunter,
    Thought provoking; thanks!
    So many moving parts: financial, political, social, agricultural . . .. It’s really hard to predict the sequence of events. Dealing with unpredictability is the challenge. That will require flexibility, liquidity, frugality, alertness, and preparedness.

    • Anthony Australia

      One can only prepare as best you can Willy.

      • William Stanley

        Agreed. We all face different circumstances and we all have different resources and skills sets. However, I often wait too long to act. Too often, I keep waiting for more information . . . information that may not timely be forthcoming. Indeed, for several years now I have stayed in an area that I perceive as potentially (and significantly) more dangerous than other options. Yet I have friends here and it is well suited to my present interests and activities; and moving (even to somewhere else in the same general area) is a pain in the butt.
        For me, part of the problem in dealing with uncertainty is trying to figure out how much to sacrifice in order to be able to adapt to likely radical — but unknown — changes in circumstances. Dealing with the problem of uncertainty is one reason why I pay attention to what people like you are thinking and saying here.

    • A friend

      pssst! William, it’s me! A lot of people are suggesting that gold will sell off in the next downturn. They may be correct, but prior to the 2008 economic downturn gold had been on a bull run off the 2001 low. Hence, much physical gold would have been in the ‘weak’ hands of speculators. Even then the sell-off was not that deep. In the event of an economic crash this year, I believe gold will be in much stronger hands off the back of this 7 year bear market. Most of the speculators have been chased out of the market and holders are either long term holders, such as the Chinese central bank, people that invested at the lows or die hard believers such as ourselves. They will have to prise it out of our cold dead hands…

      • William Stanley

        Yes, I just don’t get cryptocurrency as an investment.
        As I see it, if crypto comes into widespread use it will be because the government wants it that way — probably starting by way of “universal income” “helicopter drops” and/or social security payments.

        • William Stanley

          Using the government’s own cryptocurrency, not Bitcoin.

          • A friend

            I tend to agree. In technology, especially, pioneers are usually replaced with better developments as the designers learn from the earlier models. I am sure Bitcoin will be no different. It is possible that id the prophesised financial collapse happens this year then money will run into Bitcoin due to the lack of alternatives (with the exception of precious metals). I liked Catherine Austin Fitts’ speculation that Bitcoin is a trial run for a government or globalist crypto. A view not inconsistent with your own.
            Keep up the good work William as you are adding much value to this already informative website.

            • paul ...

              Friend … you talk about “Bitcoin technology” like it is something so wonderful and that it is going to protect your wealth … wake up … it won’t protect your wealth any better then simply buying US paper dollars … remember your current US paper dollar is currently just as “digital” as Bitcoin … don’t you receive your Social Security check “electronically” … don’t you buy things “electronically” with your credit card … with the “digital dollar” you do not use cash just like with Bitcoin … the “only difference” between Bitcoin and the electronic fiat US dollar is that your account transactions are not located at one single bank with Bitcoins (but distributed across the web) … BIG DEAL … so your transaction records will be preserved on the block-chain (just in case your brick and mortar bank records get destroyed in a tornado) … so because of this “distributed record keeping” Bitcoin has more value then a fiat paper dollar? … no way friend … people have to begin to tighten the screws in their heads and begin to think logically … why is so many people can’t see they are buying into a scam … think … what are you really buying into? … I can buy a gold coin and bury it in the ground “and get the same protection from a tornado as a Bitcoin” … but I only have to pay $1340 for a gold coin that gives the same protection by burying it … can’t people see “they are being scammed” paying $8000 “for simply having their records preserved” but not necessarily their wealth in a counter-party default!!!!!

  4. Anthony Australia

    Double that inflation rate, the rate currently is about 20%pa.

      Greg your show is second to none.

      • paul ...

        Any New Zealanders watching Greg’s show? … seems the people in New Zealand are “not all sheep” … the political “wolves” over there thought that by killing a few worshipers they could pass a law to take away their guns (just like they shoot our kids in schools over here to do the same thing to Americans) … but it isn’t working … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-10/kiwis-just-say-no-gun-ban

    Did I hear Hemke say $500 QUADRILLION in derivatives?????!!!
    I don’t doubt it one bit. What’s after a Quadrillion? A Quintilian?
    How is this not hyperinflation on a broader scale? It makes Zimbabwe blush.
    If this fiat trash looks for a home, this Country is in bigger trouble than I thought.

    Hemke, Polny and Nenner seem to be in correlation where they predict in one way or another a crash in the market and gold going up this year. If Powell does nothing, that’s like raising interest rates which is negative for the stock market, but could also be positive for gold in my opinion. Algos may exacerbate the situation rather than pound gold back down, and whether silver gets “dragged along” or not, it’s still very cheap here.

    Nothing was said about cryptos, but they are real and here to stay. They are signaling a flight out of paper trash fiat.

    Another excellent interview from yet another perspective.
    Thank you Greg

    • paul


      There are not $500 quadrillion in derivatives. The highest estimate is only something like 2 quadrillion. So Heimke probably meant 500 trillion. So relax. It is not that bad. /sarc

    Doug Casey views on what happens after the next war … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-08/doug-casey-what-happens-after-next-war

  10. Ranger

    We are up to $22 trillion in debt versus $10 trillion back in 2009.

    All by design. Debt-based Monetary Systems ALWAYS have to add more debt each and every year without exception or the system collapses.

    It’s not $22 Trillion, it’s more like $250 Trillion with all the unfunded liabilities.

    But, as Henry Ford said, it is well enough that the American people do not understand their own banking and financial system. For if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before morning.
    When you understand the monster, you know why nobody campaigns for its destruction and end.

  11. Rob

    When Craig said “biblical times”, in the 38 minute mark, it reminded me of the very same incorrect mindset in the church. We will be in “biblical times” until AFTER the “beast”, the “first resurrection”, and the thousand years should be finished when satan is loosed out of prison to deceive yet again:

    Revelation 20:5-8 The rest of the dead lived not until the thousand years should be finished. This is the first resurrection. (6) Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: over these the second death hath no power; but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. (7) And when the thousand years are finished, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, (8) and shall come forth to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

    When Craig said at the 26 minute mark about “feeding the beast” he was unknowingly speaking about a prophecy of “gold” in the “circle” where the “beast” of “mystery Babylon” is now being set up as a corporate body of many antichrists who spiritually “dwell on the earth” in this last hour:

    Genesis 2:11-12 The name of the first is Pishon: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah(circle), where there is gold; (12) and the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

    Daniel 3:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits(60), and the breadth thereof six(6) cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura(circle~world~600), in the province of Babylon.

    Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty and six.

    Revelation 13:14 And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by reason of the signs which it was given him to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who hath the stroke of the sword and lived.

    1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last hour: and as ye heard that antichrist cometh, even now have there arisen many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last hour.

    Revelation 17:5 and upon her forehead a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

    Please understand that the enemy is within our midst:

    Deutsche Banks stress test numbers are beginning to leak out.

    In the insurance industry a BBB rating is like an F in school. As an investor you’d better have your E/O insurance paid up to put someone in a company with a subpar rating. Besides Stan who’s willing to take that risk to make a buck? Only governments are that stupid.

    • Jerry

      I’m going to make a prediction here. Before this probe is finished regulators will find that Deutsche Bank is a zombie Bank used by globalist to launder money worldwide to various venues and investments.

      What better way to create money out of thin air than by moving it from account to account in foriegn banks? I have witnessed this maneuver myself with a bank in Florida my son was doing business with. EFT has opened a whole new way of laubering money by moving it from account to account. All you need is a bank insider to delete your transfers so they can’t be traced. In my sons case a fraudulent credit card was used to establish a dummy account, and then money was transferred though series of accounts, and then withdrawn. The scheme was so sophisticated that not even a federal investigator could figure it out.

  13. AL

    Great interview, and the mention of Deutsche Bank brought to mind a sermon preached by David Wilkerson in 1973. I know you take prophecy seriously, and he said that in a vision that God gave him, there would be a world wide economic crisis, and it would begin in Germany. That was an odd thing to prophecy in 1973. The link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_R9I-qQEbs.

    • paul ...

      David Wilkerson had an important message for all Christians … “God Has Everything Under Control” … But Only As Long As Christians Stand Together to Resist Evil (i.e. evil abortions, evil neocons, evil Hollywood, etc., etc., etc.)

  16. NC Gal

    I have great respect for Craig Hemke. Back in 2011, when my spiritual sources told me to keep an eye on gold prices and I saw them crash in real time, I read his column for a while. Every time Greg has interviewed him for this site, what he said made a lot of sense to me. I am still trying to get out of debt, so don’t have money to spend on precious metals of any amount, but I still found sense in his thinking, until now.

    Brandon Smith is one of the analysts I read on zerohedge.com. In his latest article (https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-06/next-stage-engineered-global-economic-reset-has-arrived), he lays out what HE thinks is coming and I agree with him. The Fed isn’t “scared”; they are just following orders.

    The ones at the top of the money pyramid have been planning this coming collapse for a long time. However, because of the compartmentalization built into the levels below those top echelons, the players below them just follow orders and carry out whatever adjustments are necessary for the elites to achieve their ultimate goals of complete global control, a radical reduction in global population levels, and enslaving what’s left for their benefit.

    These elites have gotten where they are today by playing on the ignorance, fears, and aspirations of nearly everyone throughout the world, for at least the past two centuries. They own the mainstream media, which puts out the messages they want put out and which ignores what they don’t want said. They currently control most of the governments in the developed world, and I think Smith correctly identifies Trump as “controlled opposition,” especially given Trump’s relationship with Wilbur Ross and the Rothschild banking cabal, plus the number of Goldman Sachs folks as his advisers. The military-industrial complex that Eisenhower warned against is having a bonanza under Trump, and Trump is clearly marching to THEIR tune, also.

    IF I had money to invest, I might be able to buy some precious metals, but I can’t even afford to buy a house instead of rent. Like most of the vanishing “middle class,” I live from week to week, can’t save because I am still in debt, and have seen my purchasing power evaporating even now, before this predicted inflation fully arrives. However, I do not underestimate the elites and it would not surprise me at all if, once they achieve their control objectives, they carried out some tricks to render holdings in precious metals illegal or taxed capital gains on them at a very high rates.

    Given the stated (and published) objectives of Agenda 2030, even ownership of land will be negated under “eminent domain” and the depopulation inherent in it. I DO AGREE that some sort of turning point will occur in 2020, because that’s a key mile marker for the elites in carrying out Agenda 2030. I expect things to get very rocky from 2020 onward, and I will be surprised if there is ever a return to “normalcy” ever again. The level of debt is unpayable.

    Smith’s interpretation of the global reset is a total replacement of the current fiat system with some sort of electronic currency that is totally in the hands of the elite, just as Nick Rockefeller told Aaron Russo before Russo died. Only now they won’t need a “chip” to enforce it. It will all be done with computers using profiling and blockchain technology.

    Dark days are coming and they have been prophesied by many sources. The elites ARE going to have their “day to play,” but it won’t last forever, either. A new dawn will come, but there will be far fewer pairs of eyes left to see it.

    • DaDiz

      NC, and I have great respect regarding your analysis. Thank you.

  17. Montana Guy

    Craig Hemke’s argument makes sense if you believe that the Fed has America’s interest at heart. What supports that argument?

    The facts contradict this. Since the private banksters met on Jekyll Island in 1913 they have been responsible for destroying 98% of the dollar’s buying power. It creates ‘money’ out of nothing (digital characters on a screen), turns it into debt, creates a crisis and confiscates real assets through repossessions. What a deal. They admit responsibility for the Great Depression. Today they admit that they are manipulating the stock market.

    Are folks following the IMF and its global visions? Their website imf.org describes their Special Drawing Rights (SDR) as an “international reserve asset”. They are posting exchange rates now for US Dollars (1 US Dollar = .72 SDR). Might be nothing? Search ‘cash’ and ‘SDR’. Look at their ‘Key Issues’; their content for students is precious.

  18. Tom McLaughlin

    Dave Kranzler on a Silver Doctors interview seems to think that Deutsche Bank may have already started to implode, or the junk bond market, and that had to do with the sudden closed door meeting with Mnuchin, Powell, and the financial stability board.
    Seems to make sense with Charles Nenner warning of Deutsche Bank, Catherine Austin Fits pointing us at the bond market, Bo Polny’s cycle work calling for a crash, Hepke calling for higher PM prices, Trump calling for interest rate cuts.
    In the last two weeks we saw massive moves in the bond market, gold catching a bid, manipulation in stock prices, so it looks like the pieces mentioned by your last guests are starting to fall into place.
    Greg, I’m heeding the warning from you too, am battening down the hatches for this.

    We are facing a large heap of problems, one of them is the homeless problem. We dwell in a stress and debt based society, our schools do nothing to groom our youth for success and independence. The rigged capitalist system we presently live under is designed to make the rich wealthier and the poor even poorer. My message is especially to the many people who only live a few paychecks away from being homeless, and given with all the new problems we face that are mostly unique to this sinful generation and a consequence of the sins of past generations, we must all stand strong in the fight for good. A few illustrations of the big problems we currently face the chronic disease epidemic, the police state, the economic collapse, the technocratic enslavement of society through the cashless internet of things/artificial intelligence systems and the environmental collapse that we face, theses are all very unique problems no generation has ever dealt with, the collapse of society is imminent.

    With the increasing unaffordability of homes, what must one do to survive?

    Thus, in order to be homeless you would need to educate yourself on all the first world life hacks as possible, such as being able to make useful things out of everyday things that may be seen as trash, you also need modern gadgets like solar panels for power and maybe a small stove, a generator and other useful things, you also need basic things like a safe place to stay and a job, you need to be able to tolerate this lifestyle in the long term. You need to be mindful of all the help that is available, being a working homeless is becoming a reality for more and more people, it is better to be a working homeless and be independent than living in your parents basement, so if you don’t think you can afford a house, consider the importance of being independent, which is an achievement we all desire, do what you have to do to survive in society, God bless.

    As long as you have a high quality of life, it does not matter where or how you live.


    Low income housing is often a pole of problematic people and what should be done is they should never build lose income houses together, they should be mixed with other houses, that way you can avoid creating a bad part of town situation where all the ghetto poor people live in one neighborhood.

    If This isn’t Enough to Red Pill You, What Is? w/ Fire Captain John Lord

    • paul ...

      The California fires were just like another 9-11 attack on America … what we know about 9-11 is that that attack came from people “within our own government” … can we assume the California fires came “from these same people” (or perhaps some outside Nation)??? … but the fact that the CIA controlled main stream media is not blasting Russia or China “as the ones” attacking American citizens it is likely the same traitors that did 9-11 … but placing blame is not my real purpose here … what I want to provide people is some way to protect themselves “from another attack” … and that is to look for these signs of electromagnetic radiation being beamed at your home … sleep disturbances, dizziness, heart palpitations, headache, blurry sight, swelling, nausea, a burning skin, vibrations, electrical currents in the body, pressure on the breast, cramps, high blood pressure and a general unwell feeling … if you are getting such symptoms (and you see a lot of chem-trail activity overhead) it would be prudent to get yourself and your family out of the house and possibly stay with relatives far away for a while ( and mote if the symptoms begin to clear up) … if they do clear up … you know your home is in a “target zone” that the elite want evacuated “for some reason” … but what ever that reason is … it is seems to be important enough to them to kill and microwave American citizens to death right in their homes and cars!!

        Here is a random thought … perhaps American citizens have to be burned out of their homes in California to make room for all emigrants moving into the State … preposterous idea right? … well then how about giving all the emigrants “free health insurance” and yet “deny this right” to legal California residents??? … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-10/california-illegals-come-first-californians-dont-matter … are the globalists trying to start a revolution in America??

        • paul ...

          Seems the possible reason the globalists are having so much trouble starting their revolution in America … is because when they tried to kill us off years ago by putting fluoride in our water and other brain killing chemicals like glyphosate in our food … it made Americans brains so numb they can’t get mad enough to start a revolution or for that matter even protest against the poisonous aluminum and barium being dropped on their heads with chem-trails!

        Being a ‘Commie’ is the trendy thing nowadays. Funny how cycles repeat. Good old fashioned values of sharing with less fortunate members of society coming to the fore again. You are sharing the fruits of your labour with the rest of us so you are exemplifying a good ‘Commie’ ethos. Well done!

      Nice, buying silver is always a good thing. I bought a tube of circulated (but in very nice condition) Peace Dollars — https://www.apmex.com/product/170/1922-1935-peace-silver-dollar-bu-random-year — one was slightly discolored, but all are nice. They’re not bullion coins, when I was a kid these were real money — still are.

      IMO the Peace Dollar is one of the nicest looking coins available. Designed by Anthony de Francisci, the obverse side of the coin is his wife, Teresa de Francisci portraying Lady Liberty in profile.

        “buying silver is always a good thing”

        Really? Tell that to the people who were talked into cashing out of their IRA’s, paying the taxes and the 10% penalty on it, and then buying silver when it was at $40 an ounce. Those people lost about 70% of their wealth and are still crying about it. The loss is even worse when you take into account inflation.

        • Greg Hunter

          How about the people who were buying when it was at single digits? When you have a trading mindset timing is everything. Investing is knowing the direction of an asset and being able to hold your investment. With all the trillions in debt piling up going long paper is a fools game. What is coming is very bad Paul. I think you know this. I also think we can agree that the entire market is a engineered fake with zero real price discovery. You better be on the right side of real.

    If I was to come into enough cash to buy 20 gold double eagles, I wouldn’t buy them. I would spend the cash on a small piece of ground (an acre) and set up a small vineyard, and get some bee hives going. If the money went far enough, I would also get a 1950 – 1960s stake bed truck and convert it to run on propane…. the idea being that I would go into the wine and honey business. That should give me the ability to trade or sell my products as a viable business. I have made Meade (honey wine) but I have never made wine from grapes. Never raised bees. There would be risk involved, but that is the direction I would go. We have three grapevines now, but that is nowhere near enough grapes for what I would like to do.
    I enjoyed the interview with Craig, but you can see how my mind works.

    • iwitness02

      The single largest expense after the land, would be the fence that would be needed to keep out man and beast. Again, there would be risk involved. On the other hand, life is a risky business. I would go for it.

    Hi Greg, Have been researching some of the things you talked about regarding the crop damage going forward. With this in mind.
    I have been looking at this original trade negotiation between Trump and the Chinese. Now the Chinese agreed to buy mega tons of grains and food stuffs from the US as a deal to balance trade. Then Trump pulled out of it due to what some pundits may be small concerns. But did it anyway. If we analyze the current crop/weather related problems.  I am now convinced that the growing season around the world has been major damaged due to the weather, rains etc. There could very well be food stuff shortages for various items going into this winter etc. The US is not going to be spared. Well, if Trump had made the Trade deal, China would be able to lay hands on a lot of our food stuffs, regardless if a shortage were to occur in the US this winter. Now with the Trump move, if a shortage does occur, we still have those food stuffs that China would have gotten for ourselves.

    • Greg Hunter

      Sorry Jon,
      You got this wrong. China tried to renegotiate the deal they had in place.

      • Anthony Australia

        Trade deals only benefit the Government, not the citizens. Disgraceful practice to enslave us all.

      • Allen Starr

        Been having problems getting our crops in the ground here in Russia also. The ground has been too cold to plant this year and we were three weeks late getting our potatoes in the ground. We wanted to plant on May 1 because we are growing 500 Idaho Russets and the need a minimum of 130-150 days in the ground. We were able to plant on May 19 so we will want to wait until October to harvest them. We are also growing 250 of another US variety which are very big and grow nicely here along with 750 of the Russian potato and these all can be harvested in 90 days. We were able to uncover our 600 strawberry plants on June 1 and I’ve never seen so many flower blossoms on them. About 450 plants are two years old and about 150 are three years old and the strawberries seem to be right on time and should start producing on about July 10th. We got everything else in the ground in June and saw the first Russian potatoes push up through the ground on June 8th. Having problems with ticks also because of the weather this year. Results of the first bite about two weeks ago came back favorable and am waiting for the results of the test I took this morning for the last bite.

        • Freebrezer

          Allen – you need to run some chickens through your fields – they love ticks! What a bargin – chikens eat ticks and you get eggs!

      • jon

        Hi Greg, I agree. But if there is no deal at this time. If there is a shortage of grains and food stuffs this winter due to bad harvests. The US will have at its disposal those grains that would normally have gone to China. Whether Trump knows this or not, I do not know.

    Greg,good interview. However the elephant in the room is what happens if the powers that be outlaw the use of gold and or silver for any transactions and even go so far as to confiscate all gold held in private hands? This has happened many times in history. This situation would make it difficult to survive by,at the stroke of a pen,making criminals out of ordinary citizens who had the foresight to look ahead and see which way the economy was trending. Also,what happens when all 401Ks,savings accounts and IRAs are seized and blended in with Social Security and government pension plans? Desperate people do desperate things. Especially desperate politicians.

    • Montana Guy

      libertarian jerry, I agree 100% about 401ks, savings accounts and IRAs. There are merely digits on a screen and guess who controls the keyboard.
      As for PMs, your concerns about gold and large value units of silver are valid. These are also what the counterfeiters will attack. Folks will have the burden of assaying their coins to prove they are genuine.

      That said, I’ll put my confidence in small denomination, easy-to-recognize US mint silver coins which have no need to check their mint date. Mercury dimes are my choice. By the time the tyrants get around to confiscating them there will be ‘no controlling legal authority’.

    Thanks for another interview but I am curious if there was a way you could have Bo Polny and Craig Hemke both on at the same time near the end of the year when, more than likely, Gold has still not risen above 1400. They keep forgetting/ignoring the Cabal runs the Casino and can always short their way to keep the price where they want it. I appreciate all the insight but the real and ONLY game changer in the PM market would be a rule ELIMINATING the ability to Naked Short Precious Metals. Pray that I am mistaken and hope to be.

    Christian Zionists have a hard time accepting other points view regarding the actions of the current potus in reference to his deference to the troublesome state of Israel. (This is Greg Hunter and I cut off the rest of this comment. No Francis we just hate all the Jew hating and really don’t want to hear your Jew Hating disguised as some moral argument–which it is NOT.

    Lots of people promoting cryptos however with Face Book reporting that they have to shut down 2 AI computers because they had invented their own language and were comunicating in that language they could not decipher, makes you wonder who or what controls cryptos. Do they all have hi tech back doors ? If computers can now re-invent themselves , do humans fully understand the possible outcomes ? Computers now control the share market but there will come a time when their fake economy will lose all confidence and people will flee to solid under valued assets. Perhaps the fake economy can be propped up for another 12mths but who will believe in all this new cheap money as the panacea for a collapsing economy ?

    We are getting close to some type of major event. Last night one of my contacts texted me and told me that all of the flights in Hawaii were grounded.

    About the same time this was happening there was military jousting going on in the South China Sea between the the Russian and United States Navy. In fact according to my contact U.S. forces were put on high alert on Guam for a period of time. I don’t want to read to much into this, but could Gerald Celente be right? Economic wars lead to shooting wars? At about the same time the Fed is talking about reducing interest rates, the Chinese Yuan is taking a hit. The question is how much more are the Chinese willing to take before they retaliate?

    • Jerry

      Hello! This doesn’t happen by accident. Onboard alert systems would have been activated by radar.

      And sorry Jerry, but all of the flights in Hawaii were not grounded. Just some. I know that you have a habit of not getting your facts right.

    It is likely the RESET has begun although not recognized here in North America.
    Everywhere one looks they find a large pile of excess debt which is likely to come under
    extreme duress when the next economic downturn is fully underway. Will a renewal of
    faulty FED policy like a return to QE and zero rates be effective in staving off another collapse? Likely not. Excess FED policy could induce a final blowoff rally in equities perhaps Dow 30,000 or so along with some hyperinflation. More and more, the rest of the world will lose what confidence remains in the dollar centric policies of western central banks and migrate to a gold backed new financial regime offered by US opponents. No alternative existed in 2010. An Eurasia alternative should be available as the next crisis unfolds. Only gold and silver will be money as a new system is created.

    It is very possible, as the dollar backed system fails, those living under that system
    MAY NOT be able to get gold to protect themselves. Once it’s clear the dollar is headed to the failed pile of fiat currencies, no one will want to exchange their gold for a FRN.
    Most living Americans have little economic knowledge or experience with gold. Only when they lack the money to maintain their lifestyle on a cash basis and without credit, will they wake up and see what the consequences are from a failed fiat currency and a failed political system. It will be too late then. What happens after that is whatever nightmare
    scenario one can imagine. Empire collapses throughout history have always been ugly.
    This time it will be no different.

    Look, Gold is NOT likely to exceed $1,400 an ounce this year and probably not next year. No retail demand and no public interest at all. Savers can get 2.3% on a 12-month CD, at least at a local credit union if not a bank. So, savers get some positive return on their cash and in slowdowns, consumers tighten-up and hoard what cash they have. This in-turn contributes to even more economic slowing.

    Most Americans are not interested in wasting their cash on gold at this juncture, as it has NO momentum. Until it does, forget it. The retail public buys assets after they have risen, not well before they go up. Only a tiny minority are true value investors, as it turns out. So for now, we are visibly in a global economic “slow-down”, but as Craig points out correctly, an official recession is not verified until well after the requisite two quarters of negative GDP.

    Furthermore, Craig says that would be Feb. 2020 at the earliest and I agree IF we are actually in a recession. During all the Obama Years we just bounced around near the lower end of GDP growth and watched assets soar due to FED QE. Along the way, we had periodic “slow downs” and even one or two global growth scares ( stock market corrections) but somehow, we never quite qualified to have an “official” recession since 2007-2009 . Very suspicious to me anyway.

    So, during the past ten years or so, we almost went negative, maybe just a couple of basis points of positive economic growth but still no dice. My opinion is the official criteria for a recession gives the economic conference board considerably latitude to “interpret” the numbers (a.k.a. wiggle room). Another words, recession stats are not necessarily hard and fast as we have been lead to believe. Would you concur with this possibility Greg ?

    • Greg Hunter

      Not really Jimmy. The numbers are so manipulated you really don’t know what is going on.

  47. Gina M Mancarella

    Greg, There is no way gold and silver will be allowed to run higher. The whole thing is controlled by mainly one trading desk at Goldman’s. If necessary, JPM and Deutsche can jump in and help knock it down with as many leveraged contract shorts as required. Also, silver is a strategic metal that can be nationalized at a moments notice so dont go there either.

    Just FYI – For every leveraged contract short, the price of gold declines a dollar. So if a decline of $50 is required, the desk at Goldman’s simply dumps 50 contracts onto the market to trigger the waterfall effect. Goldman has an army of statisticians, behavioral psychologists, mathematicians and physicists at their disposal to model operations. Plus … even if they failed (which they wont), the US special forces and local SWAT and SRT (Special Response Teams) can put Agenda 561 into play and seize all physical gold assets if necessary.

    Also, it is not known by many, but Roosevelt’s Confiscation order 6102 of 1933 has never actually expired and is still in effect today, so if you’re smart, dont buy gold unless it is in the form of a few pieces of jewelry. Buy US Treasuries and US Savings Bonds. Otherwise, some strong violent men might show up at your door, bust your house up and inadvertently kill you while in the performance of their duties.

    Just remember Greg, people die in fairy tales. No joke, Greg.

    CNN is reporting:

    Conducted by scientists at the Vaccine Study Center, the research looked at nearly half a million children born between 1999 and 2016, and found that most whooping cough cases — 82% — occurred in children who were fully vaccinated or over-vaccinated.

    “The bigger picture is that we’ve had several outbreaks of pertussis here in California over the past 9 years,” said Dr. Nicola Klein, a co-author of the study and director of the Kaiser Permanente Vaccine Study Center. She emphasized that the vaccine generally works, but noted that “most of the children who had pertussis in our outbreaks were fully vaccinated.”
