Manipulation 101 ... The Pithy Version

Bill Rice, Jr.
Friday, May 2nd

Author’s note: The following - an effort to prove to myself that I can, in fact, “write short” - was penned as a “reader’s comment” to Dr. Jeffrey’s Lewis’s most recent column.


The goal of The Powers That Be is to keep the grassroots masses from reaching an "orientation" that values precious metals over paper dollars that are backed only by the "full faith and credit" of U.S. Government.


The potential rapid growth in the number of people who acquire gold and silver is THE THREAT to the “status quo." What we are seeing with manipulation tactics is the effort to forestall or ameliorate this threat.


Bold actions were required to slay PM sentiment and recurring actions are required to keep sentiment dead/awful.


A) Identify threat. Check.


B) Defeat threat. Check.


Congratulations, you have ensured that the status-quo system survives another day. Job well done. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.


Also: Bluff. Lie. Denigrate ... Cross fingers. Hope. Pray ...


For any MSM financial writers who may be reading this, that’s it. Manipulation Theory 101 - The Pithy Version.


That will be $21.35 (or, better yet, one American Silver Eagle coin please).
