And one more quote, call it "quote of the day," also copied from Ed Steer's daily today:
How long can the US government protect the dollar’s value by leasing its gold to bullion dealers who sell it, thereby holding down the gold price? - Paul Craig Roberts, 24 February 2009, counterpunch.org
At this point, for those who watched Bill Murphy's riveting disclosure of emails which proved that JP Morgan illegally manipulates the silver futures market, Mr. Roberts' comment is purely rhetorical. For those who don't believe that the Fed/Big Banks manipulate the gold/silver market to their benefit, I would urge you to watch Murphy's testimony. I think the action in gold/silver this week is partially a result Murphy's/GATA's undisputable proof delivered to the CFTC/Govt on live t.v. for the world to see. Please note that the major U.S. media is covering this up, but Russia's version of "CNBC" is doing an interview with Murphy in Dallas. At least the rest of the world is interested in The Golden Truth.
