24 Silver Facts From Recent History That Make You Go Hmm

Two dozen silver facts, that’s what Charles Savoie presents in his latest report. He has used information resources that he has been developing since the year 2000, many of which still aren’t available on the web, but in library archives.

Savoie writes: “I offer these 24 factoids as an appetizer for a much larger documentary I intend to present hopefully by early July at as many sites as possible, entitled, “Silver Suppressors Hiding In The Dark.” Please ask your favorite sites to post or link it. It will of course be heavily documented and have a great deal of information I haven’t previously covered. I wish that sites who won’t carry my free documentaries would state a public reason as to why—we all have differences of personal style, but why shun naming the single organization responsible for our monetary and other major ills? If my facts aren’t challenged, what valid reason is there for the blackout?”

In this article, we pick out a couple of those facts. Readers are recommended to read the full report (see below).

  • Merchants Magazine & Commercial Review, New York, September 1842, page 270, observed the matter of coinage debasement in Ireland—“The silver coins in Ireland had by this time (1804) become so light, that twenty-one shillings were not intrinsically worth more than nine.” The most recent case of silver coin debasement in our history is of course the step-down to 40% silver Kennedy halves starting in 1965 under the awful Lyndon Johnson (Pilgrims Society) administration. Then in fall 1982 we stepped down from copper to zinc cents, and even those now cost more to mint than their face value. We can’t even maintain a stupid cheap zinc standard!
  • The North American Review, February 1889 had an article entitled, “Shall We Banish Silver Coin?” by Edwards Pierrepont (name sounds like an elitist!) He began by discussing the Royal Commission on Precious Metals in London which, after two years of alleged deliberations, reported in September 1888 (page 227) that the use of silver in the monetary system was — “A chimerical proposal, unworthy of serious consideration” and warned that to use silver as money would be to “risk creating evils exceeding those which we at present experience.” In response to their conclusion, Pierrepont reflected— “Of all the subtle devices which the wit of man has contrived to despoil the community of their property, nothing equals the contrivance of laws which limit the currency to gold and require all debts to be paid in legal tender money.”
  • Roger Quarles Mills (1832 through 1911) was a Texas Democrat in the House of Representatives, March 4, 1873 (after the bad act of 1873 was passed) through March 28, 1892, when he became a Senator, until 1899. He was chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee of the fiftieth Congress. He was a far better Texan for silver, than the repugnant President Johnson. In the North American Review, May 1890, pages 572 through 585, Mills, in an excellent article called, “What Shall We do With Silver?” commented — “Some persons are easily alarmed by the danger of inflation; but the increase of the circulation by any addition of gold and silver cannot produce inflation. It is permanent, not vacillating. It is not, like paper money, suspended in the air—money which sooner or later must collapse and bring disaster to the whole country.”However—oops! In 1893, when President Grover Cleveland, a Wall Street operative, sought repeal of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act, Mills defected and supported Cleveland’s position, which is the usual explanation as to why Mills was defeated for re-election in 1898, because his constituents felt betrayed. How sad to reach the end of your days, disgraced by wrong actions. Cleveland became a charter member in 1903 of The Pilgrims Society, New York branch—the world’s top banker organization.
  • The China Weekly Review (Shanghai), September 27, 1930, page 122, we read— “Silver is very closely connected with the purchasing power of more than one half of the human race.” British India started attacking the world silver money system in 1926 as documented at length in “The Silver Stealers.” As the purchasing power of silver skidded to an all time historical low in February 1931 of 24.5 cents the ounce, Chinese, Indians and the other Asian countries couldn’t pay for exports from America, England and Europe. That had the direct effect of idling many millions of workers. The Crash of 1929 is always cited by establishment historians as causing the Great Depression, while many goldbugs—either badly misinformed or lying by intent—assert that it was both Federal Reserve policies and the October 1929 Crash that caused the Depression; they ignore, or are unaware of, the British ambush against silver. Those things exacerbated conditions—as well as Britain’s repudiation of the gold standard in September 1931—but over 90% of the causation of the mass unemployment was a direct consequence of England’s assault on world monetary silver values. They couldn’t dump derivatives in those days; they had to dump the real thing. That is exactly what happened. The fall of silver caused the starvation of export industries, and they had to layoff most employees. Silver money is far more critically important than any dumbed-down gold only investors can grasp. Experience will take them to the woodshed, however.
  • The Commercial & Financial Chronicle, November 2, 1935, page 2820, quoted the New York Board of Trade as saying that silver has “no monetary purpose and no foundation in the country’s financial or economic needs.” Everything of significance in New York City and State is controlled by The Pilgrims Society—the world’s central committee of fiat currency issuance. That any of their entities make such statements is as predictable as cockroaches being filthy.
  • The December 1945 Fortune Magazine, page 272, complained about Indians and “the ancient tendency of the population to hoard silver” as if that were a biological disease on their part. Nearly 69 years later and guess what? Indians still trust in silver and have no inclination to immolate themselves for the Silver Users Association and the synthetic money creators. The Silver Users Association has made disgusting attempts to get silver out of the hands of the Indian people.
  • On November 6 and 7, 2007, the Silver Users Association held its annual meeting in the District of Columbia at the Army-Navy Club, a slap in the face to enlisted personnel who need the best technologies for their protection—technologies that are silver dependent—and this users cartel bled off most of the former national military silver reserve! Speakers at the Silver Grabbers Association sessions included Jerry Kilgore, former Virginia attorney general and advisor to the Giuliani for President campaign; and the ever rascally Jeff Christian of perma bear CPM Group. Isn’t it cool how they can draw into their influence, people who may be able to “help” them with their intentions? I issued a release on Jeff Christian in October 2013 entitled, “Jonathan Frid Vomits On Silver,” which paradoxically, received little coverage just ahead of the annual Silver Summit in Idaho, seeing how I raised points more sensitive and more penetrating than the questions he faced in his debate! Read the item if you feel otherwise! Jeff has been a director of the hokey International Precious Metals Institute, at the same time as Alex Patel of Du Pont, who was also an executive committee member of the Silver Users Association. At the same time there were two other SUA interlocks at IPMI and someone from the NYMEX.
