Chris discusses his time on Wall Street and how learning about the housing bubble led him to gold and silver. At that time, he didn’t realize that the game was completely rigged.

Chris discusses how the Fed was created in secret by banks, and then a few years later, the U.S. demand the population give up their gold. Shortly afterward, the price of gold was revalued higher.

Chris has submitted several rounds of evidence to the CFTC who’s mission statement is to “Promote the integrity, resilience, and vibrancy of the U.S. Derivatives markets through sound regulation.” Chris continues to ask questions that are seemingly unanswerable by any government agency. Recently, the LBMA reported nearly running out of metal, and they continue to fail to report on their “silver investigations.” He discusses the recent inactions CFTC Acting Chair Rostin Benham, who stated publicly, “Things almost got out of control and they had to clamp it down.”

The recent LBMA report on the social media frenzy where they claim 120 million ounces went into the iShares silver trust. It seems the LBMA are very concerned about running out of metal and now say that it is unlikely to happen again.

So far, no one in Washington seems to care, and while the CFTC has his evidence, they don’t seem overly interested. Chris would appreciate it if anyone can give him advice or let him know where to go in Washington.


He explains how naked shorting works, particularly with silver. The banks routinely drop paper silver into the market and collude amongst themselves to suppress the price. If you hammer the bids, you can send the price lower, but this is not normal trading behavior.
