Bitcoin forks, Russia grand juries, North Korean missile launches, Deep State sabotage, technocracy rising, DNC investigations, sex trafficking arrests, new sanctions, and healthcare failures: if these are the dog days of summer then the fall could shape up to be a blockbuster. The best place to stay up to date with all of these events is On the Objective (https://ontheobjective.org/) as well as The Hagmann Report (https://www.hagmannreport.com/) where I am a contributor!

Due to an extensive travel schedule I’ve been unable to produce a sound money weekly update for almost a month. However, this week we’re back on track and adding Ethereum (ETH) to our coverage. My hope is that this report won’t become too cumbersome, so while I may be able to add coverage of Litecoin (LTC) and Veritaseum (VERI) in the near future – plenty of whispers about good news coming for both those names – I certainly won’t be able to generate updates that cover the entirety of the cryptocurrency space. But enough with the housekeeping…

We’re now living in a world where the US has stopped its not-so-covert program arming moderate Syrian rebels ISIS, CNN keeps serving up nothingburgers and losing meme wars, the Deep State Republicans are being exposed as thoroughly feckless, and identity politics continues to proliferate. All the while it seems that President Trump is only now – six months into his administration – beginning to gain a proper foothold. Breathless accusations aside, the prognosticators – of all stripes – continue to be woefully inaccurate about the pace and nature of developments.

No surprise there. And don’t look at me like I have all the answers. I have access to the same public information as anyone else. This is The Amateur Society after all. I don’t have any inside information or sources – anonymous or otherwise. The plan here is to continue updating everyone on the state of affairs as I see them. If you’re looking for more real-time information, I’ve been tweeting my cryptocurrency accumulation entry points (@ontheobjective) as well as other content from our On the Objective podcast network (https://ontheobjective.org/).

There will be more shakeups ahead, but it certainly doesn’t seem like the #Resist crowd has any real groundswell of mobilized action behind it. Another wave could of course be in the works. However, after many promised ‘days of rage’ and ‘summers of rage’ appear to have fallen short, it looks like the primary battlefield has shifted from the streets to the legal system.

Keep your eyes open. Watch carefully, but don’t be afraid to step back every now and again. Keep the faith and keep your strength. Continue to accumulate sound money.

Guest Post: Ross Powell – The Sound Money Schism – Cryptocurrencies vs. Precious Metals

If you’re reading this then you are likely aware of the predatory nature of our global monetary system of central banks, fiat currencies, derivatives, and criminals. In case you haven’t been red-pilled on the absolute robbery that is our current governmental and financial architecture, then please take the time to educate yourself about these topics. Those looking for a place to start can read The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin, watch Eric deCarbonnel’s video series on the Exchange Stabilization Fund, or simply try this elegant researching tool.

Now back to business. It’s time for sound money advocates to stop acting like children.

How many times have we seen the same old boring arguments played out in the same old infantile fashion? We get it. Some people view cryptocurrency as a bubble blowing mania doomed to fail. Others view precious metals as being archaic. But everyone generally agrees that the fiat ponzi scheme is a nightmare that seems bizarrely difficult to awaken from.

The rumor mills are flying in every direction right now as a counterpunch against the deep state appears to be lining up while war tensions rise in Syria. We have whispers that Justice Kennedy will retire from the Supreme Court, a profound development considering the age of the remaining leftist black robes and the potential for the Trump administration to redefine the shape of the Supreme Court for several decades.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders appears to be under more FBI investigations than President Trump, Loretta Lynch and Jon Podesta are under scrutiny again, and the light is being shone on various records making their way under executive privilege to the as of yet unbuilt Presidential Library of our former fearless leader from Chicago. Trump supporters don’t yet seem to be tired of winning as more inflammatory rhetoric from mindless elites in Hollywood, establishment politics, and the media lead to further cancellations and dismissals of the psychotic fringe leftists who have taken over the mainline progressive and Democrat platforms.

The murky spot is still the Middle East, and the dynamic there is rendered more challenging by the situation in Europe. I’d encourage everyone to watch the Oliver Stone interviews with Putin if only for the primer on the past few decades of Russian history. This is certainly provocative material, but now is the time to remain vigilant as rhetoric continues to escalate.

Another eventful week is in the books. In the last update I said that it was time to buckle up for the summer, and this week we had an even further escalation of tensions when a Bernie Sanders volunteer leftist opened fire on Congressional Republicans, critically wounding Steve Scalise. That American legislators were attacked while practicing baseball – the historical American pastime – has a noteworthiness about it that won’t soon go away. I’d expect this to linger in the consciousness of the nation for longer than other incidents primarily because of the higher profile of the targets. We’ll see if can last through the end of the month and still be toward the front page.

As always, we’re simultaneously seeing the media meltdown trend continue unabated. It’s on overdrive now with these Manchurians. Press on comrade! Down with Trump! No to fascism! Death to capitalism! Refugees welcome here! Racism! Sexism! Privilege! It’s all so laughably boring at this point that if it weren’t literally so dangerous a brainwashed ideology it could be eliminated from public discourse by laughter and rational conversation. However, that’s not what 2017 has for us.

Well what do we have here? Comey testimony, British elections, Qatar isolation, US macro data tanking, housing bubble, Putin laying down the law, students demanding segregation, CNN personalities dropping like flies, and so much more. It’s all a bit too much to keep track of in depth at this point, and since that’s presumably not what you’re here for I’ll just get to the point:

Buckle up for the summer.

It feels like even if things level out slightly that we’ll be looking at a different landscape when the fall comes around. Keep your eye on China, Russia, and Iran. North Korea has vanished from the top headlines, but of course they haven’t gone away.

There appears to be a consensus that the cryptocurrency explosion of 2017 is indicating that the clock is ticking down on the current fiat system. I’m looking for more opportunities like ZenGold and OneGram – cryptocurrencies backed by precious metals – to begin making waves.

Keep your cool and continue to accumulate.
