Last month, I told you I was going
to update the mintages. I got Covid in the middle of last month; I've
never received the drug that the government calls a vaccine because of
my own reasons. It was the first time I got the illness, and I had the
It lasted for about 10-days, I'm my mother's primary caregiver, and she had it for about three days before me.
I thought I was
going to skirt by without getting it, but when it hit me, it hit me like
a ton of bricks, what I mean by that is that it just took all the
energy out of me. One day, I was good, and the next day it was like I hit a
brick wall and my throat hurt really bad for a few days.
I did develop a cough, but it wasn't respiratory, one very unfortunate complication of the Omicron variant of Covid, that I'm still dealing with, but at a lesser degree, is the amount of mucus your body creates to fight it, and with the Omicron variant, it doesn't sit in your lungs, instead it sits in your throat.
My mother is 80, and only has had the first shot of the vaccine (edit: She's had two shots), and this was her first bout with it too, we both are over it, except we are still clearing our throats often.
We never went to the hospital or doctor over it, I try to keep our immune systems strong by taking vitamin D (2000 IU) and C (500 mg), Zinc (50mg), and L-Lysine (500 mg) supplements, taken year-round. (Note: Quercetin can also be taken to help with the absorption of Zinc.)
I will try to get the mintages done this month.
Bullion Market related news on the homepage, is updated most evenings except weekends.
I wrote in May's newsletter, it's the facts about the Fed's rate hikes and what has to happen if the Federal Reserve and the United States is to beat inflation.
I'm not going to waste your time on a lot of bloviating about the markets, instead, I'll give you the facts that run through my mind every time I hear the Federal Reserve is going to fight inflation by raising rates, and in doing so I will first give you a little history.
Fact: Inflation means that there are too many dollars chasing too few goods, and the best way for any Central Bank to fight inflation is to raise interest rates to draw-in excess money from the economy.
Fact: The Federal Reserve (the United States Central Bank) cannot beat inflation unless they raise the interest Higher than the rate of inflation, as Paul Volcker did in the early 1980s, when he raise rates over 20%.
Fact: In 1981 when Paul Volcker raised rates to over 18%, the United States Debt was about $1 Trillion Dollars (source), while Revenue for the United States was around $599 Billion, (source).
When Volcker raised the Federal Funds Rate to over 20% in 1981, it added a $180 Billion Dollar Expenditure to the U.S. Budget, certainly, it is not something that could be sustained but with the Debt-to-GDP ratio only being 31% at the time it was doable.
Furthermore, Volcker did not keep the rate up at that rate for a full year (source - click "Max" to see full interest rate chart).
On Wednesday of this week (5/4/22), Jerome Powell, the Fed Chair raised the federal funds rate by 50 basis points, making it now 1%.
Fact: 2022 United States Debt currently is a little over $30 Trillion Dollars, and the Revenue for the United States currently is around $4 Trillion (source).
Fact: 1% of $30Trillion = $300 Billion,
Fact: Current Government spending for FY 2021 budget is $4.829 trillion (source).
Fact: 2022 United States inflation rate is over 8% (source).
Fact: To beat Inflation Jerome Powell will have to raise the Federal Funds rate to around 10% to fight inflation.
Fact: 10% of $30Trillion = $3 Trillion
Question: How Can interest rates go to 10% or higher when the Debt to GDP ratio is 137.2% (source)
Answer: They Can't without bankrupting the country.
P.S. - The Policies of the Biden Administration are causing inflation, the best way to fight inflation outside of raising rates is to make energy more affordable, or in other words remove the regulations on our Fossil Fuel energy sources.
Fact: the only way we can overcome inflation and reduce our Debt to GDP ratio is if we Gut the Federal Government by at least 50% and, at the same time, raise rates. Is this possible, yes, anything is possible, but will we ever have the 'will' to do it?
Until that time, I recommend Covering Your A** with tangible assets, including some precious metals.

No matter what age you are, no matter where you are in life, the best thing you can do is get your heart and soul right with the Son of God = Jesus Christ. If you question that Jesus is God, pray to him (in his name), he answers everyone who prays to him with an honest heart.
If you did this, I know he answered you or will, depending on the nature of the prayer. Thank him when the prayer is answered, and keep talking to him, he wants to have a relationship with you.
We all know that this life will not last forever, but your spirit does, Jesus will give you eternal life all you have to do is believe. Learn about Jesus Christ and how he died and defeated eternal death through his resurrection so that you could have eternal life - here.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father [God] except through me. John 14:6
Until next month, Thank you for your time and for your support.
