IT’S OFFICIAL; U.S. Silver Production The Lowest In More Than 70 Years
We have to go all the way back until the year after World War II ended to see U.S. silver production less than it was in 2018. While many reasons can be attributed to the decline, the main factors are falling ore grades and mine economics. Unfortunately, there just aren’t too many economic silver deposits in the United States, especially with the high level of environmental and governmental regulations. Instead of dealing with all the bureaucracy, companies are looking to Mexico and South America to open new silver projects.... https://srsroccoreport.com/its-official-u-s-silver-production-the-lowest-in-more-than-70-years/
ONLY GOLD STANDS AGAINST THE FINAL CATASTROPHE by Egon von Greyerz
...March 29th is also very important in the banking world since it is the date when gold is recognised as a Tier 1 asset and thus equal to cash. Until now, gold was only a Tier 3 asset and its value was taken at 50% for the purpose of a bank’s solvency. It is of course totally ridiculous that cash or fiat currencies which we know always go to zero over time, should have been taken at twice the value of gold.
There are people speculating that gold becoming a Tier 1 asset will have major significance for the gold price. Also, some market observers even think that this is the beginning of a new era with gold again resuming the mantle of backing currencies or SDRs (Special Drawing Rights). Obviously this would require a substantial revaluation of gold in relation to the dollar in order to achieve sufficient cover for the debt outstanding...
...Desperate debt laden governments will take desperate decisions. We could easily see a time when the US devalues the dollar significantly or introduces a crypto dollar and backs it with gold at a massively higher price.... https://goldswitzerland.com/only-gold-stands-against-the-final-catastrophe/
The bull market of the past decade since the Great Recession has been an unusual one: despite all of the economic damage that occurred during the global financial crisis and rising risks (including global debt rising by $75 trillion), it has been the longest bull market in history. The explanation for this paradox is simple: it’s not an organic bull marketbecause the Fed and other central banks keep stepping in to prop up the market every time it stumbles. Though the Fed has two official mandates (maintaining stable consumer prices and maximizing employment), it has taken on the unofficial third mandate of supporting and boosting the stock market since the Great Recession.
The chart below, which was inspired by market strategist Sven Henrich, shows how the Fed or other central banks have stepped in with more monetary stimulus (quantitative easing, promises to keep interest rates low, etc.) every time the S&P 500 has stumbled over the past decade:

$1.3 billion damage in Nebraska from historic midwest flooding – Meanwhile Missouri towns ordered to evacuate
...Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts told reporters the “preliminary and initial” damage losses from the flooding in the state are estimated to be more than $1.3 billion, including $439 million in infrastructure losses, $85 million in private homes and business losses, $400 million in livestock and $440 million in crop losses... In Iowa, farmer Jeff Jorgenson estimates that in Fremont County alone more than a million bushels of corn and nearly half a million bushels of soybeans have been lost in flooded grain bins. For the 28 farmers in the immediate area, that’s a $7 million loss in grain... In Glenwood, Iowa, Mayor Ron Kohn said farms west of the city are likely done for the year. “That’s all going to be gone until next year, I’m sure,” he told the Register. “Rice is about all they could grow out there now.“ The story is the same in communities along nearly every river in the Midwest... http://strangesounds.org/2019/03/midwest-flooding-nebraska-damage-costs.html
Monsanto: Roundup substantial factor in man’s cancer, jury finds in key verdict
...Edwin Hardeman of Santa Rosa was the first person to challenge Monsanto’s Roundup in a federal trial and alleged that his exposure to Roundup caused him to develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), a cancer that affects the immune system. In the next phase of the case, the jury will weigh liability and damages, and Hardeman’s lawyers will present arguments about Monsanto’s influence on government regulators and cancer research. During the trial, the 70-year-old Santa Rosa man testified that he had sprayed the herbicide for nearly three decades and at one time got it on his skin before he was diagnosed with cancer. He used the chemical to control weeds and poison oak on his properties, starting in 1986... https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/mar/19/monsanto-trial-roundup-verdict-edwin-hardeman-cancer
Pesticide chemicals saturate U.S. fresh produce, new tests reveal… 70% of fruits and veggies are contaminated with toxic chemicals
Despite the false propaganda of pesticide and herbicide producers who claim agricultural chemicals disappear after being sprayed on crops, a new research project from the Environmental Working Group has found that 70% of U.S. fresh produce is contaminated with pesticide chemicals. All pesticide chemicals are toxic to life. Otherwise, they wouldn’t kill the living organisms that threaten crops. There is no such thing as a “non-toxic” synthetic pesticide. https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-03-20-pesticide-chemicals-saturate-fresh-produce-new-tests-reveal.html
In the first significant check on the Trump administration’s “energy-first” agenda, a US judge has temporarily halted hundreds of drilling projects for failing to take climate change into account. Drilling had been stalled on more than 300,000 acres of public land in Wyoming after it was ruled the Trump administration violated environmental laws by failing to consider greenhouse gas emissions.
TRUMP EXPOSES PAUL RYAN FOR THE TRAITOR HE IS, RYAN SAVED DEMOCRATS FROM BEING INVESTIGATED
It has been discovered that former House Speaker Paul Ryan blocked subpoenas of people and entities the House GOP should have been investigating during the first two years of the Trump administration. Needless to say, the President is not so happy about it! “Paul Ryan wouldn’t give the right to have any subpoenas,” Trump told Breitbart News. “Okay? Now in all fairness, Meadows and Jordan and all these guys, they wanted to go tougher, but they weren’t allowed to by leadership.” House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) as well as his predecessor Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) wanted to do some serious investigating. Ryan would not let them, and now of course, Nancy Pelosi is playing hardball as she is now in charge of the House... http://www.thedailysheeple.com/trump-exposes-paul-ryan-for-the-traitor-he-is-ryan-saved-democrats-from-being-investigatedb_032019
The NBC investigation was broadcast at a time when they were a real news organization rather than a branch of the Democratic Party’s PR department, and provided internal State Department memos to back up claims of a massive Hillary Clinton elite pedophile ring cover-up.
