I have had a plethitude of responses over the past few articles I have written about silver. Some asked me if it was OK to wait to buy in a few months or so. They have a 401 K or IRA that is currently making money with ETFs. First off, let's define what an ETF actually is:
"An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is an investment fund traded on stock exchanges, much like stocks. An ETF holds assets such as stocks, commodities, or bonds, and trades close to its net asset value over the course of the trading day. Most ETFs track an index, such as the S&P 500 or MSCI EAFE. ETFs may be attractive as investments because of their low costs, tax efficiency, and stock-like features. ETFs are the most popular type of exchange-traded product.
In the world of Mutual Funds there are Open-End Funds (that allow "shares" to be issued on an ongoing basis), and "Closed End Funds" (Where the number of available shares is established when the Fund is created). Open End Funds are available through licensed security salespeople that represent the Mutual Fund. The "Broker Dealer" holds the contract with the mutual fund and hires salespeople to sell it.
Closed ended Funds (think Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffett), have a set number of shares available and are often traded on the New York, NASDAQ or other Stock Exchange. The key to understanding mutual funds is to think of a pool of money that is used to buy other dollar-based securities. Open-Ended Funds have to invest in whatever their target is (Growth stocks, bonds, Large Cap etc.)
"In the United States, most ETFs are structured as open-end management investment companies (the same structure used by mutual funds and money market funds), although a few ETFs, including some of the largest ones, are structured as unit investment trusts. ETFs structured as open-end funds have greater flexibility in constructing a portfolio and are not prohibited from participating in securities lending programs or from using futures and options in achieving their investment objectives. (Source)
Translation: ETFs can and do invest in Silver Options, silver futures and derivatives. Now, let's talk about Securities Lending.
"Securities lending, or stock lending, is the short-term loan of securities. With their large portfolios, mutual funds and ETFs are natural players in securities lending programs. Lenders engage in this activity because they can earn an incremental return on their portfolio... The demand to borrow shares typically comes from hedge funds or short-sellers." (Ibid)
This carries with it the opportunity for the fund to charge interest on the use of its securities. This, my friends, is known as creating financial derivatives. The same type of toxic investment that has destroyed the Global Economy.
"...when a borrower, such as a hedge fund or investment bank, collapses and is unable or unwilling to return assets to the fund. Let's use Fannie Mae bonds as an example. A fund accepts Fannie Mae bonds as collateral, and while holding that paper, its value decreases. The agreement calls for these securities to be marked to market daily, with any decrease in value covered by the borrower. However, if the borrower fails to increase the amount of the collateral, and does not return the borrowed securities when they are due, the fund now has collateral worth less than the value of the securities lent out, and it experiences a loss in its net asset value." (Ibid)
So, in essence, the ETF uses your money to buy securities, which it then "lends" in exchange for a high interest rate. In essence, it increases its risk and exposure at your expense. There are an estimated $800 trillion dollars in toxic derivatives out there. Some estimates run as high as $1,000 trillion dollars. ETF's have the ability to convert all real assets in their funds, into worthless paper, and have done so, with securities swaps in the past.
So, have we exceeded your risk tolerance yet?

Mitt Romney and Bain Capital: (Paul Drockton M.A. 2010)
First off. I am a Mormon. I joined the Church when I was 18 and
in the Air Force; served a mission, married in the Temple etc.
My nickname is "Brother Doctrine". The Illuminati hide behind
our Church and every other Church and seek to control them
through infiltration and huge financial donations. Their
goal is to bring about one religion that worships "Lucifer" the fallen
"Angel of Light" (only they claim he was cast out for sharing his
"wisdom" with mankind). They also worship Satan and seek to
harness the powers of evil through ritual sacrifice and mass
Oh, one other thing. They hate Jesus Christ. They are the wolves
in sheep's clothing that Jesus Christ warned us about. He asked,
"What man among you, if he discover a wolf among his sheep, will not drive him out. And if he can, slay him." Now, I personally wouldn't physically slay anybody. But, I hate wolves because they have hated me. I like to pull away the sheepskin so they can't eat any more sheep.
Which brings me to the unpleasant subject of Mitt Romney. Another so-called Mormon. I will now demonstrate that he is no friend to America or Mormonism.
"The goals of the CFR is best described by its very own members. Bill Clinton's Georgetown mentor and CFR member Carroll Quigley states: "The Council on Foreign Relations is the American branch of a society which originated in England... (and) ...believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one world rule established.".
Quigley differs from many of his CFR colleagues in that he believes their plan for a new world order should be more publicly disclosed. In his book Tragedy and Hope, Quigley concedes he is unique among his peers in that he believes the new world order plan of global government's "role in history is significant enough to be known". Quigley also admits that the two-party system allows for both groups to be controlled at the highest level but operate like bitter rivals. As Quigley says, this gives the voters the chance to "throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound of extreme shifts in policy.".
Controlling Washington elite allowed private central banks to " dominate the political system... ... and economy of world as a whole" and implement a new system of "feudalist fashion" through "secret agreements". Although he believes the CFR's intentions should be more public, Quigley understands the average person doesn't understand feudalism or serfdom and will never read his book."
The United States Constitution and Bill of Rights are considered sacred documents by the LDS Church and Book of Mormon. They are, literally, inspired revelations given from God. To belong to an organization that is actively trying to destroy our sovereignty and replace it with a Satanic ideal is the lowest form of apostasy.
"Surprisingly, many of its own members admit the CFR goal is to subvert the democratic process. CFR member and Judge Advocate General of the US Navy Admiral Chester Ward writes "The main purpose of the (CFR) is promoting the disarmament of US sovereignty and national dependence and submergence into and all powerful, one world government.". This high ranking military officer went on to explain their procedures for influencing policy, claiming: "Once the ruling members of the CFR shadow government have decided that the US government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities of
the CFR are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition."
In 2005, the CFR released a report titled "Building an American Community" which sought to eliminate borders between the three North American countries. One part of the plan called for decreasing government control of cross-border traffic in an effort to dissolve national borders....
Here's the thing. The Council of Foreign relations is the Illuminati shadow government for America. To be on the council you have to be "multi-generational illuminati". That means that you were a victim of ritual abuse and probably "mind programmed" using gemstone programming (reserved for the leadership level of the Illuminati). It also means high level involvement in Illuminati businesses including child pornography, child prostitution, arms smuggling, assassination, narcotics, false terrorism actions, and the sales of military secrets. This means you are a TRAITOR. Pure and simple.
As evidence of Romney's duplicity I include the following. From the CFR's own
* "The Los Angeles Times reported on August 14, 2007, that Romney has investments in an oil company tied to the Sudanese government, which is accused of being partially responsible for the massacres in Darfur."
* Romney has also downplayed allegations of prisoner mistreatment in Guantanamo. “The food down there is unbelievable. This is not this gulag; this is a modern prison which treats people with dignity and respect," Romney said."
* "he clearly does not have qualms with domestic spying in general." During his time as governor, Massachusetts opened a “fusion center” for enhanced intelligence analysis within the state. Romney has argued that individual states should play a larger role in domestic intelligence gathering."
* In December 2007, Romney outlined his "Conservative Blueprint for Strenghtening the Economy," which proposes the creation of a "Reagan Zone Of Economic Freedom," a bloc of nations "committed to open markets." The zone would include the European Union, "while challenging China." In his "Blueprint," Romney also said the president should have Trade Promotion
* (He Served) as chair of the National Governors Association’s Homeland Security Committee, and as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council. In 2003, Romney said in a statement before the Senate Governmental Affairs
Committee (PDF) that the United States should allocate funds to develop statewide plans in which the homeland security efforts of various communities within a given state are integrated. He also called for improved intelligence sharing.
Romney, in typical CFR fashion, will say all the right things to increase his popularity, but he still follows the Illuminati agenda.
ON THE GAY AGENDA: ROMNEY supported Ted Kennedy's employment non-discrimination act, He was quoted by New England's largest Gay newspaper as stating, "I'll be better for Gay Rights than Ted Kennedy."
"Mitt Romney's Christmas present to the homosexual lobby disqualifies him as a pro-family leader," LaBarbera said. "Laws that treat homosexuality as a civil right are being used to promote homosexual 'marriage,' same-sex adoption and pro-homosexuality indoctrination of schoolchildren. These same laws pose a direct threat to the freedom of faith-minded citizens and organizations to act on their religious belief that homosexual behavior is wrong." (Source)
""In Romney's own state of Massachusetts, the state 'sexual orientation' nondiscrimination law laid the groundwork for homosexual activists' campaign to legalize 'same-sex marriage' –– which then-Gov. Romney brought to fruition with
his unnecessary and illegal directive granting marriage licenses to homosexual partners," LaBarbera said. "The same pro-gay state law also forced Boston's Catholic Charities to shut down its century-old adoption agency because it would not pledge to place children in homosexual-led households against
Catholic teaching. (Source)
Mitt was also an abortion advocate before he ran for office. Illuminati Sociopaths with the correct programming can say what you want to hear in public, but they still follow the "agenda".
Q: What is the defining mistake of your life and why? (Source:)
A: Probably from a political standpoint and a personal standpoint, the greatest mistake was when I first ran for office, being deeply opposed to abortion but saying, "I support the current law," which was pro-choice and effectively a pro-choice position. That was just wrong. And when I became a governor and faced a life-and-death decision as a governor, I came down on the side of life. That was a mistake before that.
The Illuminati, more than anything else are following a "Master Race" agenda simular to Adolf Hitler's. An agenda that advocates homosexuality, abortion, family and neighborhood breakdowns, gangs and narcotics among those races that they believe to be inferior. Whether they kill Africans in Darfur, or inner city blacks it is all part of their agenda. They are the ultimate racists.
Mitt Romney and the Financial Collapse:
(Note) The LDS Church "divested" its financial holdings to an outside management company. It makes sense to me that Romney, a major player in the international investment arena, would be involved with setting up and managing this new entity. I believe the LDS Church Leadership trusted him and were in no way involved in any of his alleged criminal activities. Like the rest of society, our Church is a victim.
*An International Intelligence Expert (Link) claims that:
1. Citibanks toxic derivatives, which forced the bank's subsequent collapse, were fraudulently transferred to a Salt Lake City "Key Bank" in order to make Citibank look better during the recent audit. Reportedly, Romney is working with the White House and Fed, to move these toxic assets into the LDS Church's investment portfolio.
These toxic derivatives would place trillions of dollars of liabilities on the Church's books. Derivatives are responsible for the largest transfer of wealth in the World's entire history. Estimated at $1,000 trillion dollars outstanding in the global market.
In this one case, Romney would become a major player in helping to loot the LDS
2. Romney operated "offshore" shell companies to help investors avoid paying taxes. Source: (Source) Sadly, such entities have also been used for laundering money for Illuminati/CIA narcotics operations. The locations of these funds raises a "red flag" . The fund was also investing in our stock market, another favorite way to launder drug money.
"In Bermuda, Romney served as president and sole shareholder for four years of Sankaty High Yield Asset Investors Ltd. It funneled money into Bain Capital's Sankaty family of hedge funds, which invest in bonds and other debt issued by
