the barter/exchange economy

The fiat currencies of the world are all on the last pages of their run. This is no accident, but regardless of cause we get to figure out life in the next phase. For our entire lives we used the USofA dollar to denominate our transactions. Groceries, clothing, energy, labor, housing, luxuries, savings, retirement needs, investments … every transaction and resource decision was measured in dollars. That system is about to seize up. Dystopian books and movies have all shown us how the banksters intend the next phase to look. Your electronic currency will be transacted via subcutaneous RFID, retina scans, facial recognition devices or others. In all cases, the controllers turn off the protagonist’s money supply with the […]

inflation report published

The USofA Department of Labor issued a report on 2021 price changes thus far. Most people see the cost of everything rising. “Everything is getting more expensive.” I visualize the dollar and all other fiat currencies in the world going down. FAST. It is like being on an escalator going down. You can see the floors rising relative to your position, but you know they are not. The squeeze is on producers to keep the majority of their customers from feeling the sticker shock. It cannot be helped as their costs are also rising as their dollars lose value just as fast as ours. You cannot drop endless quantities of paper money out of helicopters without devaluing every single one […]

What determines the price of silver and gold?

The New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX) is the world’s primary clearing house for exchanges of paper products that supposedly represent silver and gold. While it is possible to purchase the physical product there, 250 exchanges involving no metal at all take place for every single real metal transaction. These paper imitations are used to RIG — oops, I mean SET the price of silver and gold. The very same frauds who print the near-useless paper currencies of the world use their paper power to crush price discovery and our ability to know what silver and gold are really worth compared to their fiat currencies. This gross depression of the real price is quite handy for them as they trade […]

borrowing VS saving VS stocking up

It is no accident that normal people do not understand economics whether it is the macro-economics of nations and the world, the micro-economics of their own household or anywhere in between. If enough of us did, those living off their arbitrary printing of fiat currencies would hang from the lampposts by the morning after the mass awakening. In the last couple of days I found myself explaining borrowing money that the banksters print out of thin air so they can “earn” regular interest payments from our meager incomes. I realized I should develop a picture that would better explain how this all works on a personal level. I did that with the two charts on the right. Since it […]

Summer of 2021 economics

The chart to the right presents actual inflation with Voodoo Economics stripped out of the reporting … thanks to Shadowstats.com for the truth. At the end of this post, I present a little chart of what 12% annual inflation does to a $2 loaf of bread or gallon of gasoline. It quickly becomes painful. Inflation is what Austrian-school economists explain as an unavoidable result of throwing paper promises around like confetti. The bansksters no longer pretend to do useful things with their fake, printed and electronic dollars . Their objectives obviously have nothing to do with anything constructive. The Dollar Has To Die for their agenda to fly. It is really THAT SIMPLE. Double the dollars in circulation and […]

Hush money received – what does it mean?

While the politicians and lamestream media call it “stimulus”, the only thing it is stimulating is the dollar’s power-dive into worthlessness. They genned-up a gazillion new dollars out of thin air and sent a token to the people ultimately paying for it. Now every dollar that was already out there has a smaller share of the value they used to have. Visualize a 100-gallon aquarium with a bright red gallon of Kool-Aid in it. Add a gallon of water and the redness is diluted a bit. Add another two gallons and you see it is quite a bit more pale than the original drink. Keep that up for a hundred years and you would be hard-pressed to know what […]

hush money

. The “grownups” in this country are being bribed with $600 each to keep quiet about $940,000,000,000 the congresscritters are ordering out of thin air. That, by the way, is 94% of a trillion dollars. I help you picture that on the right. Blow that image up and look it over at a legible size… rather impressive… and quite clear. Multiply that generous $600 bribe per adult times the USofA Census Bureau adult count and we spent $158,000,000,000 on money to keep the peasants from complaining about a trillion in self-serving corruption and graft. That is 17% of the total, graciously earmarked for us. Figuring the worldwide co-conspirators skim off 50% before they send it back to 535 members of […]

Economic Collapse is inevitable

… and imminent, by expert G Edward Griffin … who literally wrote the book on it: The Creature From Jekyll Island. As if we don’t have enough trouble. This is a look at another one of the apocalyptic horsemen I have been warning about. Stephan Molenaux and G Edward Griffin discuss the final phase of one more fiat currency that will bite the dust just as they always do. Unfortunately, that currency is the one we use. The global, one-world-order cryptocurrency they plan to replace it with will me several magnitudes worse. Prepare to live under the boot or outside the world they are planning. There is no third choice… unless you count “Give me liberty or give me […]

Fast Buck Freddie

https://www.bitterrootbugle.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Fast-Buck-Freddie.mp3 In 1975 The Jefferson Starship released album Red Octopus with the song Fast Buck Freddie on it. The lyrics railed against the Feral Reserve stealing our wealth right before our eyes that were squeezed tightly shut. This group of musicians did that quite a bit – tried to open our eyes to the evil lurking in our political “representatives”. Click the play arrow above to hear what they tried to tell us 35 years ago. The dollar bill of the time could be folded in certain ways to create an image of a joker shooting himself with a handgun. That was Feral Reserve humor as they laughed their butts off while sucking the value out of our hard-earned […]

four clear pictures of our current economic precipice

While cooking the numbers started in the Reagan administration, Slick Willy took it several levels beyond. If the lie is bold enough and told often enough it becomes reality. They removed trivial things like food, housing and energy from the inflation numbers as they were “too volatile and confusing to regular people”. Unemployed people were no longer unemployed after 6 weeks. Tell that to them, eh? Cooking the books and reporting the fictions is the new normal. Unless you visit John Williams’ Shadowstats.com. He uses the “old fashioned way” of calculating those things… ya’know that obsolete concept called The Truth. Today, the reality is harsh. This is not recoverable. It also is matched by nearly every other economy on […]

filthy lucre

Money, in the sense of being a product or source of greed. The phrase is Biblical in origin, and the word “lucre” comes from the Latin word lucrum, meaning “profit.” In an amazing twist the normal prepper did not predict, paper currencies have become less desirable than electronic transactions. Hoo-Duh-Thunk??? We were always encouraging each other to keep some ready cash in the cookie jar for the initial phases of TEOTWAWKI where people still trusted their central bank paper, but couldn’t make their regular electronic money transfers function. In today’s Topsy-Turvy world, EVERYBODY KNOWS that THE VIRUS can live on paper currencies for over a week, making it a great vector for spreading DARPA FLU. Your cookie jar has just […]

precious metals pricing

Real exchanges of physical metals do not determine market prices of gold, silver, platinum and other high-value metals. Pricing is established through exchanges of paper, or more accurately today, computer promises of metal that the buyers and sellers do not own and never will. The commodities exchange, now called COMEX was established in 1933 as part of their major reset of wealth distribution world-wide. The robber barons fixed it so the elites could take their money and power into the stratosphere while the great masses would have less and less of both due to structural changes they made from 1913 on. What does a market rigged by the banksters look like? The primary features are prices unconnected to the value […]
