Bear Market in Gold & Silver is Over – Craig Hemke

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Financial writer and precious metals expert Craig Hemke says, “The bear market in gold and silver is over.” Hemke contends the central bankers’ price suppression of gold and silver is grinding to a close. Hemke explains, “. . . They created the illusion of physical delivery. What happens when the banks, wanting the gold because it is now a tier 1 asset, say I can’t play this promissory note game anymore? Just like physical demand broke the U.S. for suppression price in the 1950’s and just like physical demand broke the London Gold Pool price in the 1960’s, physical demand will break this fractional reserve and derivative pricing scheme that has worked since 1975. It’s now going to fail too. . . . Anybody that has one ounce of gold will be darn glad they have it when the time comes.”Hemke says there are several factors leading to the perfect storm of price explosion for precious metals. On April 1st, new rules will allow banks to hold gold as a so-called tier 1 asset. Hemke points out, “This is why central banks are buying gold too. . . . Gold will be considered a riskless asset just like Treasury bonds. The way it is currently structured now, if you had $1 billion in gold in your reserves in the bank, you could only count half of that as your reserves. . . . So, $1 billion in gold only counted as $500 million. Now, it will count for the full $1billion.”

So, central banks will want to shoot this to the moon? Hemke says, “Right. Yes, and wait until the regular banks get involved in this too. Here is the last piece of the puzzle. It expressly states in the Basel III (capital requirements) terms that derivatives don’t count. None of these forward contracts, promissory notes or unallocated metal count. You cannot use derivatives and say I want 100% value on the banks’ books because that all has counter-party risk. The only gold you can use that is considered risk free is physical gold that is audited and shown to be in your vault—period, end of story. Put that on top of Indian demand, China demand, Russia demand, central bank demand . . . and you see this system and you can see how all these pieces fit together, and when you ask me why I think we are going back to new all-time highs in the next 18 months, I can say yes. That’s what I think, yes.”

As far as gold and silver prices in the future, Hemke predicts, “A collapse of the scheme they cooked up. . . . This scheme of digital alchemy, this make-believe gold, getting people to accept gold exposure as an alternative to the real thing, is going to collapse too.”

Hemke says watch the palladium market. It is highly leveraged, and that could be the first metal market to fall when people demand delivery and say ‘I want my metal.’ Hemke says, “Right, that’s when the music stops, and that is what we are all waiting for.”

  1. Anthony Australia

    Long overdue. Thanks Greg.

    I might catch David Icke on his visit to Australia this time around.

    • Fred Haight

      Hope it isn’t to Ickey Tony and thats no Baloney!

    • Keith wilson

      David icke has been banned from entering Australia. He believes that 9\11 was an inside job. The moon landings where a lie. The royal family are reptiles who drink human blood and Kennedy was murdered by the cabal military and banking establishment. He even thinks the gold and silver markets are rigged and Tony Blair and George Bush are war criminals. Also he believes that Michelle Obama is a beard and Barack Obama was a actor working for the new world order. So they banned him from entering Australia.

    I’ll exchange metal for property when the median home price is 2000 oz of silver.

    • paul ...

      Anthony … The US dollar has broken its upward wedge … https://www.clivemaund.com/charts/usd1year170219.jpg … this means silver will now be rising … but I would not suggest paying 2000 oz’s of silver for an average home … because at $1000 dollar per ounce silver (where silver is very likely to go) means you will be paying $2 million dollars for an average house … way way too much … remember … a home is taxed by your commie politicians every year while physical silver is not (so don’t buy silver stocks) … you don’t want to leave a liability to your children when you eventually pass and transfer your wealth … better to leave them your hidden physical silver stash “tax free” … no need for lawyers or trusts, etc. to keep the greedy “commie” politicians hands bound!!

    • oneno

      Expect house prices to move up by the same factor or more because of over-population. The middle-class in China can buy a house in the West using pocket money alone NOW! Have you not seen what has been going on in the last 25 years along the entire West Coast? At best you will be able to maintain your standard of living provided you have enough coins. Prudence should not be ignored no mater what the situation. And you will still need to work.

    • Aussie

      David Icke is correct! 911 WAS an inside job!

      • paul ...

        And he is correct that some of the moon landing photo’s where a lie … and that the Royal family are reptiles working for Satan who drink human blood … and that Kennedy was murdered by the Cabal (CIA, Military and Banking establishment) … and that the gold and silver markets are rigged … and that Tony Blair and George Bush are war criminals … and Michelle Obama likely Barack Obama’s beard (both acting for the New World Order elites) … etc., etc, etc.!!!

        • paul ...

          So David Icke gets banned from Australia for “telling the truth” … the Main Street Media in America obviously sees what is happening to David … and don’t want to be banned by the Deep State the way Icke is … they probably figure … being banned by Trump “for not telling the truth” is the lesser of two evils!!

    I already listened to Mr Hemke on another recent interview. Seems he may be right that Palladium will be the metal to watch in the precious metals arena…

  4. mal

    Hi Greg,
    I wonder if the central banks recent interest in acquiring the now tier 1 asset gold is a hint that we are about to see the monetization of debt accelerate.

    • Greg Hunter

      Mal,
      I think we are goin g to find out soon. You got to ask yourself why would not any financial channels talk about something this obvious and powerful.
      Greg

      • Da Yooper

        Because they want to keep the GDP ( Generally Dumb Public ) in the dark as long as possible

    • TSI

      Mal, can you expand on your comment on gold now being a tier 1 asset?

      • mal

        Hemke stated in this interview that the central bankers in Basil declared that gold will be a tier 1 asset on their books and that that declaration is just now taking effect. Go back and relisten to the interview.

        • This sceptred Isle

          Apologies, I went straight to the comments section.

    • paul ...

      It is stunning how banksters can so easily swear allegiance to a very foreign “non-fiat” currency (gold) … without considering it a treasonous act against their Modern Monetary Theory … it reminds me of American politicians elected by the American people to represent them … who then turn around and swear allegiance to a foreign Nation and don’t consider that an Act of Treason!!

      • paul ...

        Also stunning is that the Demon-rats who planned to do “a secret” treasonous falsified coup against Trump … now think that by “going public” with their treasonous plans to do a 25th Amendment coup against Trump in Congress … actually makes all their past secret and now present treasonous acts legal?? … these traitorous “commies” have a bunch of loose screws falling out of their heads holding in their recent ass transplant!!

  5. William Stanley

    Mr. Hunter,
    Many thanks!
    Mr. Hemke delivered a compelling argument for gold! (and all of the precious metals).
    Interestingly, he did it in an almost matter of fact way: “PMs are going way up for obvious and prosaic reasons. The move has already started. Why not get with the program?”

    • Greg Hunter

      Hemke is a smart careful analyst William. I was surprised he was this direct.
      Greg

      • Anthony Australia

        He was because there is no denying the fact that; its as plain as the nose on your face, you are indeed 100% correct Greg, don’t sell yourself short.

        I’m sure you have gained invaluable knowledge interviewing all of your guests over the journey.

        The banks did start their purchasing spree around the time of 07’ 08’ and set into motion the great economic illusion.

        They were brilliant as they made the public, who had already just been ripped off, chase debt and paper whilst they accumulated metals.

        • Greg Hunter

          Thank you “AA”!!
          Greg

        • Bob

          Stewart Thomson says Au to 3000 in next bull move possibly. In any case it’s looking really good he thinks.

          Clive Maund says the same thing.

          Chris Pirnak says it looks good but he is not convinced yet.

          • Sally A.

            Bob, thanks for dropping the name of Stewart Thompson. I check 321gold.com every single week to hear his take on developments in metals.

      • paul ...

        Greg … This is what direct [Hemke saying: “I think we are going back to new all-time highs in the next 18 months”] looks like … https://www.gracelandjuniors.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/2019feb19gold3.png

        • paul ...

          As for silver … new all-time highs could be of even greater magnitude then the move in gold as seen in the following chart … https://hubertmoolman.files.wordpress.com/2019/01/silver-long-term-fractal.png?w=700 … silver will be gold on steroids (as Jim Sinclair says) especially if Trump uses the RICO laws to seize back all JP Morgan Chase’s 150 million ounces of silver (as “partial pay back” for all the gold the banksters under Clinton stole from Fort Knox) … upon removing “this potential silver supply out of bankster hands” will make the silver market just as explosive as the palladium market!!

        • Bob

          Cool, looking at the chart we only have to wait until 2024.

          • Mungo

            At this point, I can hold my breath that long!

    VIRGIN BREAKS THE SOUND BARRIER!
    Flight reaches 801 mph as a furious jet stream packs record-breaking speeds
    The jet stream streaks across the country. By Matthew Cappucci February 19
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2019/02/19/flight-reaches-mph-furious-jet-stream-packs-record-breaking-speeds/?utm_term=.6f34265d56a4

    Tuesday was a nice day across the Northeast. Temperatures near 40 in New York, light winds out of the north at 5 mph to 10 mph, and wall-to-wall sunshine sound like a tranquil day — especially by February standards. But high up in the atmosphere, it’s a different story.

    • Bob

      Did you even read the article?

      “an airspeed exceeding the speed of sound was not attained. Commercial aircraft are generally not designed to fly at supersonic speeds.”

      It didn’t break the sound barrier. Why did you post this?

      • Brad27

        They had a 200 mph tailwind which made for an 801 mph ground speed.

        • Bob

          Brad, I know that it had a 801 mph ground speed. I read the article. What’s that got to do with breaking the sound barrier?

          Zoe Chomsky made something up. She said “VIRGIN BREAKS THE SOUND BARRIER!”. That’s not true at all.

          The article did not say the plane broke the sound barrier. I don’t like it when people make stuff up that isn’t true.

      • Great Lakes State

        Bobster,
        Did you read it?
        It’s ground speed broke the barrier! Being moved along by the unusually super fast air, of the jet stream. The plane did not encounter the straight in, head long winds of supersonic flight.
        Your right though, where the plane itself would have broken up going at airspeed,
        breaking the sound barrier.
        But moving along with the super powerful airstream those passengers were going beyond the speed of sound. Without sonic boom, caused by air turbulence across the wings and fuselage.

        • Occasnltrvlr

          The airplane did not reach Mach 1.

          It is not unusual for commercial airliners in the jetstream to reach a ground speed >767mph.

    How about transferring “bankster assets stolen from the American people” directly to State pensions … instead of stealing more money from the American people!! … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-19/illinois-considering-asset-transfers-pensions-be-afraid

    • Brad27

      I would rather see the assets stolen from the American people returned to the American people who were stiffed by the banksters. The public sector gets enough of our hard-earned labor. Let those who promised the public sector workers way too much take the heat for their generosity with other peoples’ money.

  9. paul ...

    All corporations should be forced to pay a minimum 10% tax on the income they show they earned for their stockholders (no matter how many loopholes they can find in the tax code) … such corporate greed is obscene … especially when a husband supporting a wife and his kids is forced to pay the IRS about 35% of his earnings … no wonder we have so many commies in America “demanding the same free lunch” the corporations get!! … https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-19/amazon-paid-zero-corporate-tax-second-year-row

    Beware the ides of March.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ides_of_March

    Rome truly has risen from the ashes. Everyday is an assignation attempt on Caesar. The barbarians are at the gates ( meanwhile the senate decrys … walls, walls, we need no walls ). The arenas are filled with spectators to entertain and distract. The legions are called home as the treasury begins to empty its plunder.. Enter the court jesters …..as master Bernie Sanders makes his way in to finish the job, and put this once great nation under.

    • paul ...

      The reason Bernie Sanders has such a huge following is because the commies who vote for him want the same benefits the “commie corporations” are getting (i.e. paying hardly any taxes, getting bailouts with public funds, etc., etc.) … people want “their fair share of the free lunch” the commie corporations working for the Military, Industrial, Bankster, Government Complex are getting … the “elite commies” are not being fair to the “ordinary commies” … so the ordinary commies want the Fed to print up some money for them also … the Patriots who don’t believe in printing money to bail out corporations and banks must begin to prepare (just in case the commies win the next election) and begin massively buying silver and gold!!

      • paul ...

        Now for a theoretical explanation as to how “all these commies” are made … make yourself a cup of coffee and sit down and listen to Dr. Bruce Lipton … the attachment below provides a unique explanation of “where everything comes from” (as above so below) … you can actually see as “through the eyes of God” exactly how everything in our universe was created … and how we ourselves are like an AI computer in a matrix … but with the ability to change our current environment for the better!! … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xywpyZwm7Ko

    The Turd is awesome. I love his interviews with Jim Wllie, who I follow loyally. Surprised he calls fiat money. Silver is way to valuable to be money,no, it will be priced by the microgram !
    You’ll see.

    Greg,
    Hemke is one of my favorites and I’ve been following him since he started. He has a great personality and a good head on his shoulders.
    I noticed alternative currencies are signaling something, not only gold but bitcoin and litecoin…hmmm….
    Central Banks are inherently socialist towards their buddies, they freely print and give money away to the elite to keep them solvent. You can’t have this on a gold standard.
    O-Crazyo’s dream of a Fourth Reich NAZI America will be shattered!
    Politically, gold will bury the socialist democrats and if the prognostications are correct, we’re looking at several decades of true (BS Free) prosperity.

    Excellent interview and thank you for clarifying some things as Hemke talks fast.

      Derived from the Old Testament, this story revolved around Ruth, a pagan priestess who served in the temple of Moloch, under the High Priestess, and falls in love with a Hebrew man named Mahlon. This love brought her spiritual beliefs into question as she had trouble reconciling her pagan religion of child sacrifice.

  15. David

    Great interview! Thank you.

      Thanks David!

  16. Russ

    Great interview Greg, outstanding info from Craig Hemke.

    Palladium: Poor man’s platinum? LOL I’ve been wondering what the palladium run-up has been about. As I understand, in most inductrial applications and in jewelry, palladium was a cheaper substitute for platinum. The only thing palladium does better than platinum involves Cold Fusion if that can ever be made to work… not yet. Without CF, there is no reason for palladium to carry a higher price than platinum. With CF, only physical palladium will work. Paper palladium doesn’t form the right matrix in the reactor.

    But now we know that it’s all paper game about leverage and Russia is not playing ball. Maybe the players figure they can run the price up high enough to entice Russia to deliver, but with Hemke’s info, why should they. A failure to deliver in palladium may allow Russia’s central bank gold to increase in value. Russia may be a supplier of palladium, but they are a big buyer of gold. Russia may want a short squeeze in the Palladium market.

    Basel III. Good info, forewarned. Thanks again.

    • andyb

      With the PMs it is all about scarcity and availability. The USGS predicts the planet will run out of mineable (at any cost!!!) silver within a decade. Palladium has a similar scenario. The key takeaway is that, since most silver for its highly critical and non- substitutional uses is consumed and forever lost, it will eventually be worth more than gold, which has just minor industrial uses, is never used up, and still exists today as produced and refined throughout centuries.

      • William Stanley

        Darn it, andyb, why does it always have to come back to silver (and gold) in our proximate possession? I suppose that now I’ll have to sell my PM mining shares pretty soon, too. Why do things have to be so simple?

    • William Stanley

      Thanks, Russ. Palladium does seem overvalued relative to platinum. Yet I’m like a moth drawn to flame. Maybe I’m now forced to hedge a recent purchase of a palladium bar with a purchase of a platinum bar (I sure can’t just admit a mistake, and just sell the palladium bar). Why or why didn’t I just stick with silver and gold!

      • Russ

        I was okay with the palladium price until it moved higher than platinum. At that point I started looking for clues that someone had figured out how to make a cold fusion reactor work in the real world. Nope, not a clue. That it’s just a paper game makes more sense than anything. My reaction was to buy some platinum. It’s just a matter of time.

        • Greg Hunter

          Russ,
          I buy what is cheap and silver looks cheap to me. I sell nothing.
          Greg

          • William Stanley

            Mr. Hunter,
            Let me see if I get this: You figure it’s better to have one large loss and one large gain instead of two large losses (albeit one larger than the other)? In other words you would hedge stupid with smart rather than with something merely less stupid?
            Hmmm. Let me ponder whether that makes sense or not.

            • Greg Hunter

              William,
              I am not sure we see things the same way. I have always looked at gold and silver as a core assets, like insurance, and not a loss or a gain investment. In today’s environment it is “stupid” not to have insurance.
              Greg

              • William Stanley

                Mr. Hunter,
                Me, too, except during my more stupid moments.
                Okay, you won’t let me off the hook with a little self-effacing humor; so I’m off to the blackboard:
                I was really stupid.
                I was really stupid.
                I was really stupid.
                .
                .
                .

                • William Stanley

                  But, yes, we do see some things differently: Are you sure that a semi-auto shotgun is really better insurance than an M-4 with a red dot scope and a weapon light?

                  • Greg Hunter

                    William,
                    I did not say one or the other. If you have means …
                    Greg

                • Greg Hunter

                  You are definitely NOT stupid William. Did not get the humor but do now.
                  Greg

    • Freebrezer

      Russ – ‘Poor mans platinum (Pt)’ … not sure why people think this. For every 15 ounces of Platinum mined there is only 1 ounce of Palladium (Pd) mined. It is about the same ratio of gold mined to silver … Pd is rare! Palladium is a far superior metal for catalytic converters in cars … it is about 1 to 3 vs platinum needed vs. surface area. In general, Pd is a far superior metal for most catalytic reactions vs. Pt. The run up is simple – the car companies along with the hydrocarbon industries needed a very good catalysis and found that using Pd was much cheaper vs. platinum. Back ten years ago when palladium was selling for around $600 vs. Pt selling or $1400, it was a no brainer to switch over to Pd … again it was cheaper and required less metal. Now a whole bunch of industrial processes are based on Pd and it is running short and there just ain’t very much of it … the cheap stock piles have been used up, and there is just not a lot of it mined! It is a small by-product via platinum mining … again 1/15th that of PT. Russia is sitting on the largest stock pile and the largest producer … You are right – Can you say short squeeze! Bye a few ounces now and in 20 years 1 ounce will put your child or grand child through university.

      • William Stanley

        Freebrezer,
        Good points!
        Maybe I’m not as stupid as I feared. Why not diversify your insurance?

      • Russ

        Industrial metals. You buy the one that works best for the price — cost effectiveness. Just because Palladium might be rarer does not make it better. As I understand, in most industrial applications, Palladium is a stand-in.

        • William Stanley

          But, Russ, as I understand Freebrezer’s argument, mere rarity isn’t the issue. His argument was that palladium is a better catalyst ounce for ounce. Following Freebrezer’s argument, palladium aught to go for something like three times the price of platinum.

  17. Rich

    He did not seem as enthusiastic about silver as I have heard from other people?

    • Greg Hunter

      Rich,
      Did you hare him say he was dollar cost averaging and his cost was around $10 per ounce? He clearly likes silver.
      Greg

      • Paul from Indiana

        In a doomsday, or even reset, scenario. silver will be the trusted, daily operating medium of exchange, and gold will be the store of value, the means to bring forward wealth out of one system, over/through the chaos, and be re-established in the new system. Ideally one would need and want both. For most, significant gold possession is simply not possible; therefore, silver, copper, and finished goods will be required in the interim for those wishing to try to survive. Best always. PM

    Trump praises Covington student suing Washington Post: ‘Go get them Nick’

    Nick Sandmann’s interaction with a Native American man in Washington, D.C., went viral.
    President Trump on Wednesday cheered a student from Covington Catholic High School who is suing the Washington Post for $250 million over its reporting on his interaction with a Native American man on the National Mall earlier this year.
    The president tweeted a portion of Nick Sandmann’s lawsuit in which he alleges the news outlet “ignored basic journalistic standards because it wanted to advance its well-known and easily documented biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump.”
    “Go get them Nick!” Trump tweeted. “Fake News!”

  19. Arthur L Barnes

    Greg, the Democrat part now is by in large a non Christian party, they tend to either be agnostics, one God for all like the Pope indicated that the Muslim god and Christ is one in the same, or many believe in some sort of impersonal divine power or are just atheists all the while denying it in public. Oh, there a few hold outs in the middle of the party and the ones who tend to sway to the middle right, but not many go to church on Sunday Christians left in that party; let me name it: The Godless Party. The Democratic Part is moving to the left so quickly that its amazing that the fathers of that party are not demanding it come back to mainstream to save it, but in fact they are doing the opposite; getting on board the left bound train. The old Kennedy Democrat is long in the tooth and has moved unto the rests homes of America leaving the “new” Democratic Socialist taking the reins. THIS WILL NOT TURN OUT GOOD for either party because this new activist left party will become violent.

      AB – Their ‘religion’ is socialism/communism/marxism (control of the people) … listen to any one of the candidates talk … moral obligation to save the earth … moral obligation for social equality … moral obligation to stop eating meat … moral this, moral that, etc, etc,. Religions impose a moral standard. What is hypocritical is that just 20 or so years ago the left was pushing that Christians did not have the right to push their morality. Now the left is pushing their morality down our throats. The leftist garnished their positions with many examples of religions committing death and destruction in the name of morality… Can you imagine the death and destruction that is coming our way via this leftist religion … be prepared and fear not – “Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.” Marcus Aurelius

    Greg, palladium will probable break out first as its a highly sought after metal that the world transportation systems can’t do without. Its the metal that used in every catalytic converter in all vehicles around the world to turn harmful hydrocarbons into less harmful pollutants out the tail pipe. Gold and silver although can be very valuable in industrial productions can also be substituted if prices go to high, but not palladium in so many applications. You can hold gold and silver but you must, in fact, use palladium to manufacture as there is no alternative available so its no wonder it has already broken out to the upside well ahead of gold & silver in the last few months; look for it to continue straight up if all your guest discussions come to fruition.

      Arthur Car sales are crashing worldwide. Palladium will follow…. Buy gold/silver, sell palladium.

        Only Gold and Silver have a history of being real money. Begining from the time of Abraham. Nothing else..
        P.S
        If there’s one thing these commie politicians hate seeing more than real guns in real American hands, it’s real money in real American hands..

        Eric – It will be palladium that will drive and pay for companies to go to the asteroid belt to be mined! Not gold, not silver and not platinum … Palladium is the “angel” per catalytic medals. And did I mention that the miners only pull out 1 ounce per every 15 ounces of Platinum. The stuff is rare, and it is the Ferrari of the platinum group metals … https://www.arnoldclark.com/newsroom/334-52m-for-the-world-s-most-expensive-car-why-does-the-ferrari-250-gto-cost-so-much

      ARTHUR L BARNES,
      Platinum is the alternative to palladium in catalytic converter. The problem with platinum is that it’s sensitive to changes in temperature of the fumes and that’s why it’s used only in catalytic converter for diesel. However, with palladium trading above $1,400 an ounce, how long will it be before auto manufacturers switch to platinum which is currently trading at around $800 an ounce?

      “It’s not a flick of a switch for us,” Rahul Mital, global technical specialist, diesel aftertreatment at General Motors, said in a panel discussion at a London Bullion Market Association meeting in Boston in Nov. 2018, when palladium was around$1,000 and platinum was $880.
      “Any time you want to make a substitution like that, it is at least 18 months to a two-year cycle if we’re going to switch. We have to be careful that by the time we do all that, price changes don’t negate the benefits,” Mital was quoted as saying.

    Just before listening to Mr Hemke’s opinion of palladium, I read an article by Bob Moriarty regarding palladium. Mr. Moriarty is an old-timer, he says palladium is about to fall off a cliff.

    Craig has revealed some key ingredients for what I posted a few weeks ago!

    The IMF’s handbook calls for pumping the debt markets until it all explodes just like David Wilkerson’s vision declared will happen soon:

    http://www.888c.com/yDWEconomicV.htm

    Is the Ides of March 2019 about to strike?:

    https://banyanhill.com/exclusives/70-stock-market-crash-to-strike-august-1-economist-warns/

    Gold knows that the global debt markets are trapped so TPTB will be forced to turn on the money printing presses shortly.

    In the last week, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank, and the Federal Reserve have ALL abandoned any pretense of normalizing policy.

    While they have yet to start easing just yet, it’s now only a matter of time.

    Gold is rallying as investors look for a safe haven that CANNOT be devalued by Central Bank or stolen by the political class. Gold knows that BOTH of those items (theft of capital and devaluation of currencies) are only going to get worse going forward.

    Could the “ides of March” that happened in Rome, Italy also be the month that defaults set in motion the 6 months of horror that Wilkerson saw? Wilkerson’s vision declares that once a “European” nation defaults within two weeks Mexico will default bringing the contagion to the USA. Six months from the end of March brings us to the end of September when the fall feasts commence and when I expect a firm covenant with many to begin the “week”(7 years) of tribulation:

    Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one that maketh desolate; and even unto the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate.

    Just some things to ponder as we patiently prepare spiritually for the tribulation that the church must endure:

    Greg,

    Am amazed how oblivious your guest is to what came around 2011 to get gold from peak of 1900 to a “never look back” point….!
    He mentioned everything as a reason except the real reason..Which was HARVESTING LIBYA and killing Qaddafi, stealing all the gold he accumulated to start the African gold dinar and establishing the United States of Africa…!!!!
    How clueless…
    Look at the time line and match the events and you will see the drop in gold came on the heel of falling Tripoli/Libya and the death of Qaddafi.
    And now the game is in play again. They stole the gold of Venezuela and they will topple Maduro for “establishing democracy” (Democracy my foot…Just to steal the country) so that gave Comex an ammo to deliver some of the contracts that are theatrically asking for physical delivery to say hey..we have gold…and when Maduro’s gold is over they will steal the gold of Iran and after that the gold of SA and UAE and so on….That is the game Greg, what is it that your guest is so blind to it????
    So no …the game is not over and the gold will not go to the roof…it will be smashed again with the paper once they liquidate the stolen gold.
    When all the gold of sovereignties is liquidated (you know from my previous posts who is the real accumulator of it) then yes it is a reset to DIGITAL …!!!

      Mohammad,
      Libya is a very small part of the global gold picture. It was like robbing a quick-shop for $50. What has happened is way bigger than that and Hemke is NOT “clueless”!!!!
      Greg

      • Mohammad

        No Greg, It was not a SMALL part.
        Libya was setting all the gold of AFRICA to be in one basket…AFRICA…So the project was HUGE and it had the thumbprint of Russia / China whom was fooled by the resolution in UN that derailed the whole project by getting the head state leading it into chaos.

      Mohammad,
      Qaddafi backed his currency with Gold and that got him killed by Hillary and his county’s gold stolen. Mohammad, I do not hold out much hope for America as long as the Democrat party exists. Look at the weasel Chucky Shumer; Open borders for America, but Chucky does not believe in open borders for Israel. Mohammad do not go against Craig Hemke as he is friends with JIM WILLIE who would be well worth your time to read. Greg, why not have Jim Willie as a guest?

      Jallen

      • Mohammad

        Jim willie goes off much and he is a liability, I understand why Greg does not have him on.
        But you are blaming Democrats? can you explain to me why POTUS has Abram who moved mercenaries to Guatemala and now he is moving them to Venezuela? what is the difference between Hillary and POTUS?

          Mohammad – ignore first post – for some reason it posted a post above – The goal per the US with Venezuela is to stop the cascade of refugees inundating and crushing the adjoining countries of Colombia, Brazil and Guyana. These countries can not handle the humanitarian crisis. The gold taken out of Venezuela was not via US or English. Saint Maduro still controls it. I suspect Russian or Chinese. Mohammad – I am still trying to figure out how Hugo Chavez’s daughter made 4 billion by being a hair dresser? Damn socialism is great … even the hairdressers become worth billions! I wonder how wealthy Maduro’s family is?

        Though I value him as a man of thought and fellow Watchdogger, Mohammad views everything through the prism of the Middle East, particularly Syria and Islam. That is not a chosen prejudice on his part; he is genuine in his conviction and consistent in his practices and advocacy. I do not share most of his views or position; however, I value his contributions here. Many thanks and best always. PM

    • Tin foil hat

      Mohammad,
      You seem to not able to see the forest for the tree. Bush killed Saddam Hussein because he was going to replace the dollar with euro for trade settlements. Don’t you think 3,000 plus dead Americans is too high a price just to harvest couple of hundered tons of gold? If you remembered, Obama didn’t care much about the invasion of Libya, he was Johnnie come lately after Italy and France. Most of Qaddafi’s oil goes to Europe, Total S.A. and BP have investments in Libya, and I believe most trades were settled in euro.

      In 2011, the dollar crisis was pretty much over since we activated the Greece time bomb in the euro system. Qaddafi didn’t trust neither currencies and created the pan African gold back dinar for trade settlement. He didn’t understand what he was messing with and basically made the same mistake which Saddam Hussien made.

      Saddam Hussien mistakenly believed E.U. would protect him from the U.S., Qaddafi thought the U.S. needed him to fight against Al-Qaeda, lol. HARVESTING LIBYA was not the main objective but any extra gold to quench the dirsty Chinese would not be bypassed.

      • Mohammad

        I see the difference between the Macro and Micro.
        What you do not see is Libya was ONLY TO MOVE SYRIA into abyss.
        Syria was the target and the Syrians burned badly in 80’s in Hama from Assad the father would never move in inch if it was not for them tricked into believing that the fighter jets will back them up same way they did in Libya.
        Gold harvesting is a SIDE BONUS.
        Main intention was to topple Syria.
        Whoever controls Syria controls the world.
        Been that in the past, will remain that in the future.
        This is not a statement coming from someone who is Syrian and emotionally affected by the war there, it is coming from sorting events thinking about it and linking the dots…But you have to see them first in order for you to link them together.

        Mohammad

        • Freebrezer

          Mohammad – agree with Syria was intended to be toppled! they wanted it gone so the oil/gas cartel could get their product to the European market much cheaper vs. Russia.

        • Bob

          Syria is a part of the Greater Israel of the Yinon Plan so its days (in its previous form) were always numbered.
          I’m was never surprised that a war started in Syria.

          General Wesley Clark’s famous list of countries to invade was just a Yinon plan implementation, and he went on TV to say he didn’t know what it was about. Someone showed him the list and he was like “wow that’s a lot of countries to invade, I’m not sure if we can do all that” and apparently thought no deeper than that. Unbelievable. Literally.

    Thank you Greg,

    Greg another Interesting interview for sure, but I have two questions:

    1) Wont there be massive political pressure to change the Teir 1 Asser value to accept paper as well in the event of a perceived crisis?

    2) Who was the gentleman (totally forgot his name) you had on as a guest last year who was saying silver would skyrocket immediately? Could you have him back on for a follow up interview?

  26. Open Eyes

    Greg,

    This might be the federal debt solution that Mark Taylor had a hunch on.

    Ellen Hodgson Brown, J.D., the author of The Web of Debt, would make an interesting guest if you can get her. She gives a solution to eliminating the federal debt: Abraham Lincoln’s old debt-free Greenbacks.

    http://www.webofdebt.com

    …An 1865 London Times editorial directed against Lincoln’s debt-free Greenbacks said it all:

    If that mischievous financial policy which had its origin in the North American Republic during the late war in that country, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debt. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.

    It looks like JFK was taking on the Federal Reserve and Federal Debt before he got assassinated.

    John F. Kennedy
    vs
    The Federal Reserve

    John-F-Kennedy.net

    On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. The Christian Law Fellowship has exhaustively researched this matter through the Federal Register and Library of Congress. We can now safely conclude that this Executive Order has never been repealed, amended, or superceded by any subsequent Executive Order. In simple terms, it is still valid.

    When President John Fitzgerald Kennedy – the author of Profiles in Courage -signed this Order, it returned to the federal government, specifically the Treasury Department, the Constitutional power to create and issue currency -money – without going through the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank. President Kennedy’s Executive Order 11110 [the full text is displayed further below] gave the Treasury Department the explicit authority: “to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury.” This means that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury’s vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation based on the silver bullion physically held there. As a result, more than $4 billion in United States Notes were brought into circulation in $2 and $5 denominations. $10 and $20 United States Notes were never circulated but were being printed by the Treasury Department when Kennedy was assassinated. It appears obvious that President Kennedy knew the Federal Reserve Notes being used as the purported legal currency were contrary to the Constitution of the United States of America.

    “United States Notes” were issued as an interest-free and debt-free currency backed by silver reserves in the U.S. Treasury. We compared a “Federal Reserve Note” issued from the private central bank of the United States (the Federal Reserve Bank a/k/a Federal Reserve System), with a “United States Note” from the U.S. Treasury issued by President Kennedy’s Executive Order. They almost look alike, except one says “Federal Reserve Note” on the top while the other says “United States Note”. Also, the Federal Reserve Note has a green seal and serial number while the United States Note has a red seal and serial number.

    President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 and the United States Notes he had issued were immediately taken out of circulation. Federal Reserve Notes continued to serve as the legal currency of the nation. According to the United States Secret Service, 99% of all U.S. paper “currency” circulating in 1999 are Federal Reserve Notes.

    Kennedy knew that if the silver-backed United States Notes were widely circulated, they would have eliminated the demand for Federal Reserve Notes. This is a very simple matter of economics. The USN was backed by silver and the FRN was not backed by anything of intrinsic value. Executive Order 11110 should have prevented the national debt from reaching its current level (virtually all of the nearly $9 trillion in federal debt has been created since 1963) if LBJ or any subsequent President were to enforce it. It would have almost immediately given the U.S. Government the ability to repay its debt without going to the private Federal Reserve Banks and being charged interest to create new “money”. Executive Order 11110 gave the U.S.A. the ability to, once again, create its own money backed by silver and realm value worth something.

    Again, according to our own research, just five months after Kennedy was assassinated, no more of the Series 1958 “Silver Certificates” were issued either, and they were subsequently removed from circulation. Perhaps the assassination of JFK was a warning to all future presidents not to interfere with the private Federal Reserve’s control over the creation of money. It seems very apparent that President Kennedy challenged the “powers that exist behind U.S. and world finance”. With true patriotic courage, JFK boldly faced the two most successful vehicles that have ever been used to drive up debt:

    1) war (Viet Nam); and,

    2) the creation of money by a privately owned central bank. His efforts to have all U.S. troops out of Vietnam by 1965 combined with Executive Order 11110 would have destroyed the profits and control of the private Federal Reserve Bank…

      Jerry, you have to make up your mind. The principle behind your first option is that banks are in control. You frequently make that argument. The principle behind the second option is that they are in the same boat we are, but they have insider info. Given your well-published conspiracy ideas, I would find it curious that you would suddenly be giving banks the benefit of the doubt. If the banks and their ilk are victims, we are surely all going up the unsanitary tributary without means of motivation. Best always. PM

    What Will Happen Now That Jussie Smollett Has Been Indicted At Long Last: It Really Gets Good Now
    #LionelNation Published on Feb 20, 2019
    Public Enemy Number One Jussie Smollett, was charged at long last Wednesday evening with disorderly conduct (that’s it?!), a felony, after allegedly and putatively filing a false police report about a ludicrous attack he said occurred as he walked to his apartment building in Streeterville last month. If convicted, he could face from probation to three years in prison. And if justice exists, federal charges will be leveled against this feline prevaricator and racial arsonist. Watch the sentencing storyline begin to develop. And it will be rich, I assure you.

    Greg,
    Here is an update on military preparations for fourth coming civil unrest.https://mobile.twitter.com/USNorthernCmd/status/1096191720239226880

    While on the surface these training sessions may appear as routine,
    I can assure you with my own personal on the ground intel, they are not. Here’s a brief recap.
    . National guard troops called to southwest border September.
    . Emergency broadcast system linked with Whitehouse in October.
    . Military portable cell towers reported being erected in October.
    . Northern command training for zone 3 attack in December.
    . Military transformers and satelite communications equipment spotted in January.
    . Military troops being called home from Iraq and Afghanistan in January.
    . National emergency declared by President Trump last week.

    Greg something is afoot. This just can’t all be a coincidence. We all have a choice. Either act like nothings happening and risk the consequences of our choices. Or continue to be vigelent and prepare for the worst. I’m opting for the later. Vladmir Putin is beginning to show his doubts about whether President Trump can disarm the deep state and is taking steps to protect his people. That should be a warning to us all.

      It’s not enough, to finger the deep state through congress or the media. Varifiable proof has to be gathered to try them in military courts. And this takes time. Jeff Sessions hired over two hundred attorneys to sift through the process, but walls were put up both at the CIA and FBI buffering his progress. Now attorney general Barr will have his shot. President Trumps learning curve has now been completed, and according to documents, the trials at Gitmo are scheduled to begin March 1st most likely preceded by a false flag.

          How soon people forget. Like I posted last week, this is the last chance to save our country. I may not like Donald Trump as a person, but his message resonates with me.
          When I looked at the field in 2016 I didn’t see anyone that wasn’t either part of the deep state, or didn’t have the guts to take them on. The Democrats no longer hide their connection to the deep state or what their true Marxist agenda is. It’s all out in the open now, and we will either stand together behind President Trump and support him, or we will fall. Period. The deep state doesn’t care about collateral damage, as long as they can maintain power. Everything is on the line.

      unless its a false flag staged by paid actors, our country is about as far away from a civil war as ever. while there is a ton of noise on social media, the seeming downside of that is this huge upside that no one is talking about – mentally and psychologically, the noise is more about venting. Everyone is getting a chance to voice all their fears both real and imagined. the thing about fears, is they are simply emotions, and facts are that 99.99% of all fears are imagined. the globe is on the verge of peace like has never happened before, with trade truces and agreements breaking out all over, and hot spots being relegated to just that – small controllable excursions that will always exist and break out when you have 7 billion people on a planet. energy problems are being solved world wide. technology advancing at such a rapid pace, that cures for everything are occurring at a speed at which we cannot even count. biological and medical achievements are happening at a break-neck pace, and cures for all sorts of things we never imagined would even happen, are occurring daily. The problem is our media, quite frankly, which focuses on minutia and its all negative. they are immorally ‘creating’ their own version of whats ‘news.’ People who tune out of Facebook, Twitter, and youtube, along with most social media platforms, realize a profound lift in spirit and come out of depression.

      what people aren’t preparing for is this – the rapid technical advancements are leaving so many people who think they are educated, completely in the dust. if you are immersed in our innovation society, and have jobs that are current to today’s advances, you simply don’t have time to pay attention to all this noise. You are being productive in today’s society, and honestly not worried one iota about who the President is, or what he is doing, or any of the other 24/7 non-stop media barfing that comes out of mainstream channels. More problems in our society are being solved than ever before. You just are not seeing it happen, because our media is not doing any journalism even in the most remotest sense.

      Yes, tragedies like the recent Aurora shooting, near me, where 5 innocent victims got shot by a guy who was getting terminated, do happen. But these things will always happen. In every society. By any measure though, economic trade has never been more freely occurring, and jobs being created, and industries being innovated, and never more citizens rising above their born lot in life. All the immigration you are seeing world wide, whether its legal or illegal, is actually an indicator of increasing opportunity. If the world stunk right now, you would not see any immigration, and zero hope. Hope has never been greater.
      The catholic church has had a terrible track record with its priests. and its entire structure. the visibility and the reckoning its going through, while quite belated, is happening and changing a horrid culture. so bad institutions are being upheaved. Improvements come slowly, but they are finally happening. 40 years ago you could never report any abuse. Now, you report it, and instantaneously the perp is pretty much neutered. the elder ones who remain, and there are many, will be removed.
      You can see the same change with nearly every taboo topic, everything being addressed.

      Its vocal, its noisy, its messy, which makes our politics quite messy, but it does mean progress, however subtle or slow, is happening. In a world with no progress, or no social bonds, and no peace, none of this would be addressed. 100 years from now, some historian will likely label this period as some sort of ‘new awakening.’ Right now in the middle of it, its hard to have perspective. It all looks like a mess, and looks like a pending ‘civil war’ of some sort. Folks we aren’t going to have nukes launched, and more countries than ever are aligned toward the same goals. Some want things faster than others, and that is where the friction is. Old trade agreements are now obsolete and that is a good thing. Trump’s emphasis on trade with China is more a symptom of changes already under way. Many businesses accomplish things outside of formal trade agreements, against many odds, but certainly thriving. Our own country has minted more millionaires in the past decade, than it minted in the past 200 years. Many other countries have done the same. You hear more now about inequality than ever, because its allowed to be talked about, and even the billionaires are saying, YES, tax me more, I deserve it. Geez, even 20 years ago you would never ever hear that.

      If Greg’s website and interviews helps you feel more prepared than thats good. Sometimes though you have to hear or listen or read ‘between’ the lines, and have some perspective, and look at things from the opposite side. Your mind will become cleaner, and your spirit more hopeful. I come here for information that helps me ascertain what others might feel in terms of anxiety, and fears, and then realize I have it pretty good, as do many of us in America. Its humbling too in many ways. The world problems can be sort of over-whelming, but Greg is delivering good medicine. Maybe all those military things lining up, are actually preventive, rather than a reaction or cure ? They can be looked at any number of ways. The military is still keeping us safe the way I view it. Not just Americans safe, but the world. Yes its costly, but you do it because you can afford it. America is doing it because other countries dont have our wealth.

    Greg,

    Can anyone here on the forum including you Greg explain this to me:
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-21/trump-i-want-5g-or-even-6g-tech-us-soon-possible

    “I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible. It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind. There is no reason that we should be lagging behind on………

    ….something that is so obviously the future. I want the United States to win through competition, not by blocking out currently more advanced technologies. We must always be the leader in everything we do, especially when it comes to the very exciting world of technology!”

    Those are his two tweets, can anyone convince me that Mr. Trump is not GLOBALIST..!!!

      Mohammad, I believe what you are saying here is correct and anyone with open eyes can see there is a “very” big change underway. While we are all caught up in this theatre of politics and rear view mirror perception of what used to be (money and otherwise) an new format of existence is being rolled out behind the scenes. The next generation of wireless, 5G, is going to be a very big game changer for HUMANITY ! Catherine Austin Fitts says a parallel economy is being built. I suspect the systems we have now will crash after 5G is fully functional. Martin Armstrong’s economic confidence model based on historical cycles shows a totalitarian system from around 2032 forward. Take a look at what the Chinese have done with 5G and social control.

      Precious metals, Fiat / Democrat, Republican / Central Banks, IMF, .. This should be our biggest concern !

      Greg, would it be a good idea to sniff out a 5G expert for an interview ?
      Richard Dolan?
      Sincere thanks for all you do Sir

        What “Mr.” Trump is fulfilling here is the elite’s globalist’s wet dream.

    It always seems like a contradiction to say “Gold Standard” and them talk about the price of gold going up. If Gold is the standard then the price can never change. What really happens is the value of everything else decreases in value in relation to the standard. If “Standards” change then they are not “Standards.” To me, when I hear people say the price of Gold is going to $10,000 per once it makes me wonder if they understand how the economic system works. Plus, to say gold is going up completely masks what is really happening. The fiat bank/government money system is going to hell is the way I would put it. Gold will do what Gold does, that is, it is the standard of value. To say the price of gold is going up is like a Christian saying: “God did not make sense to me until I got saved but now that God has changed and sees things my way I am a better person.

    Been following Craig for years. He lives and breathes the metals markets, is a seasoned analyst, and is deserving of a listen. I note that Avi Gilburt has just posted that if you want to know what’s in store for the metals complex, NEM rising above 34.29 will be a signpost. It is now over 35.

  43. Gina M Mancarella

    Wake up America !

    American values are under attack !

    The American Dream is under attack !

    The world is losing faith in America !

    America has never been truly great before, but impeaching this xenophobic misogynist, racist hater, we can begin making America truly great !

    • Jerry

      Gina,
      Same ol stick. The only racist are the ones claiming to be victims of MAGA. I guess if you can’t find a bigot to fit your narrative, then create one. Right? You people are sick. Learn this term. Victim race baiting.

      Yep. Jussie just got impeached off his show. That after he went back to the set in full denial, and saying he didn’t do it. After Chicago police had possession of the $3500 check he wrote to his two paid ‘actors’. He is the poster child of Gina’s kind, denying and lying, and blaming others for bad actions that he actually perpetrated. Very reminiscent of Obama actually.

  44. Gina M Mancarella

    Jussie Smollett’s staged attack is very disappointing . . . (This is Greg Hunter. I deleted the rest of “Gina’s” comment and posted the most important part. From all of us here at USAW thank you for coming to your senses. You didn’t really that’s why I deleted the rest of your comment. There was a nugget of truth and humility but a small one.)

  45. vincent_g

    This is off topic
    Now that jussie smollett has been arrested and most likely will face jail time my question is this:
    How long do you think it will take for a Free jussie smollett movement takes place?

    A story like this I doubt will go away soon and may live on for many years to come.
    One point I missed that a youtuber Jericho Green brought up is that these Nigerians although not charged with a crime may be deported as they were arrested and were guilty of aiding a criminal act.

    The flack from this is not what the democrats would like but is on their door step.
    And let not leave out the main stream news who also have as Desi would say some splaining to do.

  46. James Brown

    Greg, My Dude!!! Awesome interview!!! Mr. Hemke pointed out one of the “CRACKS” in the system. Did you notice J.P. Morgan lost $1.6 billion on their bond portfolio last year? Did you notice Goldman Sachs lost $1.9 billion on their bond portfolio? They both cited rising interest rates. Then the Fed announces no more rate hikes. That is another crack in the system. This is sooooooo valuable/important for you to bring to the peoples. ATTA BOY!!! Hey, take a minute to do a victory lap, and when you do it, do it like Kirk Gibson, rounding the bases, pumping your fist. You have had better interviews but this is one of your best. This was the best interview I’ve seen Mr. Hemke give, congratulations to him as well. Thanks. Keep up the great work.

    Jim Sinclair said several years ago that those holding the price of gold down will be the ones who make the most money in the shortest amount of time on gold.

    I’d stay away from palladium. Never buy anything at an all time historic high. I had two physical ounces of palladium and traded them for silver at about $1150. I sat on them for several years just to turn a few hundred bucks profit into more silver eagles.

  48. Robert Peter Bailey

    Hi there,
    I really enjoyed your interview today, especially craig’s Inpersation of Jimmy Stewart voice from his old movie who had a buildings and loan company, George Bailey, not related to my family tree ! Ha ha

    Sheldon,
    I do not care for Kushner and I am hoping he will prove me wrong. I think there are a bunch of GOP Senators that are Koch stooges too!!

    Just a thought. I got involved with “metals” in 2010. A nickel rise in silver was exciting. Silver went to 49 and change. Interesting that the physical holders couldn’t unload fast enough to take some money off the table.
    Gregg, this is what I think will happen; AGAIN. The price of metals will continue into the mid 30 range, excitement will generate creating the same panic buying. At which time the Fed will start the next QE sending the price of silver back down to where it is now or lower.
    Wash….Rinse…and Repeat.
    That 21 Trillion is floating around by the Deep State Bankers that will also step in by then. I won’t even talk about the WTC gold. My interpretation is based on many factors, but the “new” one…. only if there are no “Republican” indictments. Savie?

  51. Jerry Falsetto

    Excellent interview. I haven’t heard Craig before but he brings a lot of new information. A lot of guests just regurgitate the same old stuff with maybe a new wrinkle but this was fresh. Plus, he’s believable without dramatizing a bit. I mean the story is already good enough to be buying precious metals without hype. Well done Greg and Craig.

  52. john

    My prediction: rates will eventually rise destroying the bonds that have been backing the financial system only to see gold elevated to a tier one asset at 100% value to come in and save the banking system from total collapse – the price of gold being some inverse function of a bond reset that is sufficient enough to recapitalize the banking system with confidence. Hemke nailed it!

  53. Nicole

    Palladium or platinum, which one do you prefer?
