Gold bottoms, then skyrockets within 24 hours of failed Swiss gold referendum

As Sunday Nov. 30 was chosen by the Swiss to be the day of their gold referendum, the banking cartels took advantage of limited access to utterly collapse both gold and silver by more than 10% during off-market trading.  And with the Swiss people happily choosing to remain tied to fiat currencies and a debt-based Keynesian model, it was very easy for the banks to short gold and silver to below $1150 and $14 ...

Under the president’s new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare. President Obama’s temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying ...
