Directive 10-289: A Chilling Directive

ByKeith WeinerAugust 26, 2019
Our modern civilization is on a trajectory that will lead to a very dark place. History provides examples of what can happen. We refer to the period 1929-1945, and course to 476AD. If the monetary system is not changed, 476AD is where we will end. The raison d’etre of Monetary Metals is to try to… Read More »Directive 10-289: A Chilling Directive

The Hawks Surrender

ByPeter SchiffJanuary 22, 2019
