The U.S. dollar is in trouble - a situation with HUGE implications. It's vital you read this urgent message from Lee Bellinger, Publisher of Independent Living, and take steps to protect yourself.
The U.S. Dollar is Teetering on the Brink of Collapse
Now May Be Your Final Opportunity to Protect What's Left
of Your Nest-Egg – Before Wrongheaded Government Policies Utterly Devastate It.
Smart Money is Taking These Steps NOW,
Before the World Suddenly "Dumps" the Greenback...
...AND SO SHOULD YOU!
Dear Concerned American:
Financially-desperate politicians and central bankers have secretly declared war on the value of our currency, your purchasing power, and your standard of living...
...and the situation threatens to spin wildly out of control.
Debt monetization. Quantitative easing.
Bailouts. Fiscal stimulus. Zero interest rate policy (ZIRP).
These high-powered phrases bandied about by the media are just French for INFLATION... and, quite possibly, a sudden and catastrophic dollar collapse that will change our nation forever.
Anyone holding dollars or dollar-denominated assets is sitting on a ticking time bomb, and frankly, there is'’t a moment to lose before something triggers a rush to the exits. It's extremely important you read this Urgent Briefing carefully... and NOW.
With the U.S. government frantically borrowing and spending money in a desperate effort to re-inflate stock and housing markets, the government itself is going bankrupt. In a press conference on May 23, in which he tried to explain his multi-trillion spending boondoggles, President Obama admitted to adoring reporters "we are out of money now..."
A massive, catastrophic "dumping" of the U.S. dollar looms large as major foreign investors such as China catch on to the hard reality of U.S. insolvency and come to the inescapable conclusion that the only way Washington can keep its Ponzi finances going is by running the monetary printing presses non-stop. (More about this in a moment.)
The upshot is if you don't immediately begin taking basic precautions, you stand a good chance of getting caught with your britches down.
It isn't just me sounding the alarm. Even mega-investor Warren Buffett (a high-profile supporter of President Barack Obama) recently admitted publicly the frantic spending and money creation underway right now will cause the U.S. to experience a currency-destroying inflation that is going to be much more severe than in the 1970s.
While all currencies on the globe are falling against
tangible assets, the U.S. dollar is falling faster.
That's why big-time investment gurus such as Jim Rogers have used the temporary, deleveraging-driven dollar rally of recent months to evacuate their assets out of harm's way – before, as he puts it, the dollar "goes the way of pound sterling" and "declines by 90% in the coming years." Rogers then offered another sobering assessment: "The world at large does seem to understand innately that governments are bankrupting themselves and destroying paper currency."
The Dollar's Coming "Reckoning Day":
On a Par With Pearl Harbor and 9/11
The dollar’s coming "reckoning day" is going to be traumatic – in addition to marking a major milestone in America’s decline as a financial powerhouse. As I explain later in this briefing, the havoc unleashed by a dollar crisis will be nationally jolting on a par with Pearl Harbor, John F. Kennedy’s assassination, and 9/11. Here’s just a glimpse of what can be expected:
An explosion in prices as Americans scramble to buy assets, or simply basic necessities, before the dollar's purchasing power evaporates;
Shortages, sparse grocery store shelves, and gas lines;
Failed businesses and economic dislocations;
A breakdown in commerce, as longer-term transactions become impossible to make;
Rising crime and unemployment;
Government services all but disappearing, as an angry dependent class takes to the streets;
I want to give you the inside skinny on what prudent citizens are doing to protect themselves (and even prosper) from a greenback collapse.
There are many steps you can – in fact, must – take to protect your family's standard of living. And you must do it soon.
Let me explain.
Respected forecaster George Whitehurst-Berry has offered an astute "big picture" explanation of financial gyrations rocking U.S. markets: "We are in the terminal stages of the world's most gigantic pyramid scheme," he explained (referring to the ultimate collapse of the U.S.-led monetary order that will further impoverish millions while making a handful of smart and ahead-of-the-curve thinking investors rich).
Even the Pentagon is Planning for
Major Dollar-Collapse Scenarios
The threat of a sudden major dollar crisis is so real top Pentagon intelligence consultants are actually running live "planning scenarios" in which resource-rich countries such as Russia and China exploit U.S. foreign indebtedness to wreak sudden havoc in our financial system and basic economy.
In the March 24 Unrestricted Warfare Symposium at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, for example, intelligence analyst James Richards presented a detailed "blueprint" on exactly how U.S. enemies could bring our economy to its knees by dropping the value of the dollar by a shocking 75% overnight.
The report's conclusions are chilling. The U.S. is so vulnerable to this scenario, Richards' paper recommends that U.S. intelligence services pay close attention to global gold supplies and the financial maneuverings of rival powers (something I already do for my valued subscribers). The prescient Richards paper came out shortly before Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of China's central bank, challenged the U.S. to step aside for the introduction of a new global currency to replace the dollar.
My friends, the handwriting is on the wall. In late April, the international news media reported a major development underscoring the coming doom of the U.S. dollar. As usual, the U.S. media glossed over another harbinger of what is to come. The Financial Times of London, for example, noted on April 26: "China has quietly almost doubled its gold reserve to become the fifth-biggest holder of the precious metal."
Or as the always-reliable Casey Report added: "On the bigger global screen, this revelation [about China's gold hoarding] stops the concept of gold as a 'barbarous relic' as bankers had hoped it would become in the past 50 years..." Translation: The day of the paper-backed dollar is coming to an ugly end, and soon.
You Need a Plan for Dollar Collapse: NOW
This is why I am writing you today. It's not good enough to know what's going to happen.
You must have a practical, doable plan to put yourself ahead of the 99% of Americans who are going to get caught completely off-guard when the terrible fundamentals of the U.S. dollar wipe out the purchasing power of their salaries and their retirement savings.
The coming dollar collapse will produce more than just skyrocketing prices. Fuel and food shortages, crime waves, and the government's endless socialistic interventions will devastate the American economic landscape like a giant tornado.

Experts Deliver Dire Prognosis on the Future of the U.S. Dollar: Your Hard-Earned Money Will Be Debased to Alleviate Federal Insolvency
I don't like being lied to. And I don't like being ripped off. That's why I made it my business to understand the government's shocking financial dilemma — how serious and unprecedented it is and how they are making "their" problem into "your" problem. (At least if you don't act.)
Nobel Economic Prize winner Dr. Paul A. Samuelson, hardly an alarmist, recently offered that U.S. financial imbalances are so severe and "irreversible that we must accept that at some future date there will be a run on the dollar. Probably the kind of disorderly run that precipitates a global financial crisis."
Or as Dr. Ron Paul, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, recently noted about the rampant, unprecedented money creation going on, "If we continue doing what we are doing right now, we will literally destroy the dollar."
Here's How a Worst-Case Scenario is Likely to Play Out:
Are You Ready?
The key to understanding the dollar's vulnerability is the global nature of currency markets. Our government's standard operating procedure of manipulating, papering over, and otherwise tricking gullible U.S. voters about the greenback being "strong" is one thing. Forever fooling sophisticated foreign investors who are financing U.S. consumers and bureaucrats with debt they can't ultimately pay back is quite another.
What's important to understand is that global, around-the-clock electronic financial markets make it possible for the dollar to be dumped by millions of people literally at the speed of light.
Worse, such panic runs on the dollar are most likely to originate abroad, largely beyond the manipulative fingers of the President's Working Group on Financial Markets (a.k.a. the Plunge Protection Team) who would be called upon to prop up the dollar's credibility when it is threatened, just as they have in times of stock market stress.
In 2005, a German video producer interviewed financial experts all over the globe on what could happen after the then housing bubble collapsed and U.S. consumers ultimately stopped buying foreign goods with debt (also provided by foreigners). The result is a 50-minute presentation titled Day of the Dollar, a realistically chilling video in which the dollar's dismal fundamentals catch up with and overtake all efforts by the U.S. political class to prop it up.
A Single Triggering Event Could Collapse the Dollar Overnight as the Over-Indebted U.S. Finds Itself Isolated in a World of Angry Creditors
The Day of the Dollar scenario begins with an unexplained drop in the value of the dollar in Singapore, triggering a greenback sell-off in Hong Kong. As traders in Amsterdam wake up, the dollar is down significantly against the yen and dropping fast. The problem is worsened by the fact that big foreign institutional investors in U.S. government debt – who might otherwise come to the dollar's rescue – are already over-weighted in dollars and more inclined to dump than accumulate more.
As the dollar continues to drop overseas (with Wall Street still closed), there is no way for U.S. money magicians at the Fed and Treasury Department to shut down markets for a "cooling off" period. As news spreads, lines form at European ATM money machines and foreign currency exchanges.
Even before Wall Street can open, the European Union suspends the acceptance of dollars for Euros, triggering an even bigger dumping of the dollar abroad. The U.S. retaliates by freezing all foreign transactions. By the time Wall Street is open, trillions of dollars being hoarded by institutions and individuals are flooding onto the market, knocking the purchasing power of the greenback even lower.
In another wrinkle, OPEC oil producers no longer recognize the dollar as a unit of trade. American oil companies that want to buy crude must now pony up the funds in the form of a hard currency. OPEC indicates it will only accept payment in gold, silver, or other hard assets of equivalent value.
Americans have to start paying for cab service and food with cigarettes, liquor, and other tangible goods. Those stuck without barterable assets or real money (which is now understood to mean only gold and silver coins) are completely destitute.
Would you be surprised to learn something like this has already nearly occurred?
Well, it has.
The Real Life Story of How the Wheels Almost
Came Off the Cart on September 18
Just last September 18, the entire U.S. financial system nearly collapsed – coming within hours of unprecedented panic withdrawals from U.S. banks and money market accounts totaling $5.5 trillion (well over a third of the nation’s entire annual economic output).
The chairman of the House capital markets subcommittee, Rep. Paul Kanjorski, recently spoke on the record about the little-known incident, noting it "would have collapsed the economy of the world... it would have been the end of our political system and economic system as we have known it." (Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke confirmed this terrifyingly close call in a recent 60 Minutes interview.)
During the September 18 "episode," the Treasury Department’s emergency pumping of $105 billion into the financial system failed. It was only after Treasury abruptly announced it would extend existing federal guarantees of $100,000 deposit insurance to $250,000 that the crisis abated – at least temporarily.
Rep. Kanjorski’s nightmare scenario almost became reality.
AND THIS KIND OF SUDDEN FINANCIAL CALAMITY CAN EASILY HAPPEN – FOR REAL.
Suddenly inaccessible ATMs. Frozen bank accounts, retirement funds, savings accounts, and small business payroll bank accounts.
This near collapse of the U.S. banking system happened right under the nose of the media. Almost no one even knew anything out of the ordinary was going on – the point being you can't count on the media to give you early warning of things to come.
To this day, no one knows exactly how the September 18 run on the banks was triggered! All that federal officials know is that gigantic withdrawals came upon the system from abroad, without warning or notice, and only the extreme measures above stemmed the crisis – and just in the nick of time.
The string of unprecedented bailouts may have saved the "too big to fail" banksters from getting their full comeuppance. But the bailouts have not solved the underlying problem of insolvency. They have simply changed the manner in which the default will take place.
Instead of the country’s largest financial institutions all falling like dominos, it will be the currency itself that takes the hit. The trillions in newly created bailout dollars courtesy of the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve will help precipitate an inflation tsunami.
U.S. Finances Are an Even Bigger Mess Than is Generally Understood
Even before Barack Obama was sworn in, unfunded federal liabilities had blown past half-a-million dollars per U.S. family of four. In fact, the federal government’s finances are in such shambles the Comptroller of the Currency, David Walker, resigned in disgust at the tail-end of the Bush administration.
Worse is what's happened since Walker resigned as Comptroller General. As Rep. Ron Paul recently wrote, the trillions of dollars created to bail out banks in just the past six months have added the equivalent of a whole new federal establishment to Uncle Sam’s bloated obligations. The new spending obligations stagger the imagination, and amount to:
More than the socialistic New Deal...
More than the entire Iraq War...
More than the 1980s savings and loan bailout...
More than the Korean War...
And a new report by the Congressional Budget Office shows that rising unemployment and declining tax revenue is likely to cause the Social Security “Trust Fund” to start running annual deficits as soon as next year – a FULL DECADE before the Comptroller General’s office had been warning it would happen.
The Next Financial Train Wreck Could Be the Bond Market –
Are You Properly Hedged?
Recently Bloomberg tabulated the continuously-growing U.S. government takeover of the private-sector (in the form of loans, guarantees and other commitments). So far, taxpayers have been saddled with an ADDITIONAL $12.8 trillion in unpayable debt. These federal bailouts now amount to 90.14% of America's annual gross domestic product – nearly our entire output for a year! Imagine that, for every $1.00 you make, brand new federal bailouts now have a claim to more than 90% of your hard-earned money.
What's especially infuriating to me is that the Federal Reserve refuses to disclose to the public who has been on the receiving end of all its bailout dough, or exactly what's now on its ballooning balance sheet. The Fed's own Inspector General in recent Congressional testimony admitted after much waffling and obfuscating that she cannot account for trillions of dollars worth of off-balance-sheet transactions and has absolutely no idea how much the secretive central bank is losing on its "investments."
As scandalous and as massive as the corporate bailouts are, they pale in comparison to the bailouts that will be required for Social Security and Medicare. A recent editorial in Barron's states flatly: "Medicare, Medicaid, pensions, indeed the full freight of the federal government constitutes a Ponzi scheme in plain sight. Income is recycled to pay benefits; no new wealth is created."
U.S. public and private debt now amounts to nearly 400% of gross domestic product. In the midst of the Great Depression in 1933 total debt topped out at 300% of GDP. That suggests the current financial crisis could be even more severe in magnitude and length.
It is no wonder that Standard & Poor's quietly reported that U.S. Treasury bonds are poised to lose their AAA-rating because of the way Washington policy-makers have been indulging in emergency cash creation and massive spending programs.
MarketWatch recently reported another disturbing and telling warning sign: The cost to buy insurance against U.S. sovereign debt has surged by a factor of seven as compared to a year ago and is 60% higher than the end of 2008.
A collapsing U.S. bond market will be a disaster for the pension funds, mutual funds, and insurance companies that hold bonds by the billions. Of greater concern to me, when the bond market ruptures, millions of retirees on fixed income could find themselves destitute.
I don't want you to be among the victims of this disaster in the making. Fortunately, you can take steps right now to hedge any exposure you have to the bond market (if you have a retirement plan or a life insurance policy, then you are almost certainly at risk). You can even position yourself to profit from the decline and fall of U.S. Treasuries.
The Dollar Destruction Defense Manual shows you exactly how!
Enter the Chinese, Who Are Increasingly
Unwilling to Bail Out Uncle Sam
At this point the United States government needs to borrow roughly $5 billion per day just to keep its head above water. And most of the holders of Uncle Sam's credit card debt – foreign powers – are openly speaking out that they are getting closer and closer to cutting our government off or severely reducing its limit.
The desperate money printing now underway is unprecedented in its scope – an attempt to reinflate the deflating credit bubble, which is driving rightly-skittish foreign financiers to make increasingly significant moves to evacuate their holdings out of the U.S. dollar.
The biggest candidates for dollar-dumping are the nominally-communist Chinese, who hold almost $2 trillion in U.S. debt. The "core" of President Obama's "financial recovery" plan is to goose the already-reluctant Chinese to escalate their exposure to U.S. bonds which finance Congressional stimulus pork-barrel spending, subsidize failed unionized industries, and soon, bail out many insolvent state governments.
Worry About the Dollar is Seriously Eroding
the Greenback's Global Credibility
The April 13 New York Times notes "In the last two months, President Wen Jiabo and other Chinese officials have expressed nervousness about their country's huge exposure to America's financial well-being." The article added that the Chinese have begun unloading U.S. Treasuries which fund the U.S. government and all its bailout programs.
Nobu Su, head of Taiwan's TMT Group (which ships commodities to China), told the London Telegraph on April 15 that Beijing is trying to extricate itself from its vulnerability to the dollar. He notes of major Chinese purchases of hard commodities around the globe: "China has woken up. The West is a black hole with all this money being printed." Jim Lennon, the head of commodities at Macquarie bank, added: "They [the Chinese] are definitely buying metals to diversify out of U.S. Treasuries and dollar holdings."
Make no mistake – the Chinese (among others) are scouring the globe right now – snapping up copper, oil, gold, silver and anything else tangible they can get their hands on to position themselves outside of a U.S. dollar hanging by a thread.
Financially, the U.S. is on a Road With No Turns
Chinese worries about the debasement of the U.S. dollar by politicians who have gotten the country in over its financial head are quite VALID. The U.S. money supply has expanded by a jaw-dropping 271% since December and in mid-March the Fed had announced additional plans to expand the money supply by a whopping 50-60%! Unfortunately, these inflationary policies come on the heels of a 990% annual money supply expansion rate in the last four months of 2008 – as reported by the St. Louis Federal Reserve Board office.
In April, Financial Sense analyst Brian Pretti produced a remarkably well-documented report demonstrating why the Fed has had no option but to begin directly funding U.S. government debt (nearly $2 trillion worth of new IOUs will be issued in 2009 alone) through the creation of printing press money because of flagging demand from China, Japan, and private investors.
We are witness to the end of a 38-year experiment – in which global currencies linked to the dollar (and with no gold backing anywhere) are reaching the final inevitable stages of all fiat money. When the Weimar Republic, and more recently, Zimbabwe, began to monetize their debt the countries plunged into hyperinflation.
In short, the United States is printing its way out of debt. And that means the value of the dollars that you hold are destined to go down significantly.
Fortunately, you still have time to prepare – and I will eagerly help you.
The Smart Money Stampede Out of the Dollar Has Already Begun
If you've already heard a little voice in your head warning you that Wall Street paper assets are highly-manipulated certificates of financial folly, you got this letter just in time. While the rampant money creation may force the DOW upward in nominal terms, the DOW index itself has been collapsing against the value of hard assets for some time.
For example, it currently takes about 9 ounces of gold to buy a share of the DOW industrials. Yet as recently as 1999, it took 44.8 ounces of gold to buy a DOW share – that's a whopping 80% crash in the real value of the DOW.
The money magicians in Washington can fool millions of investors in the short-term, true. But they can't fool those who measure their wealth in terms of precious metals, which retain their value over time. Gold is the mortal enemy of big-government borrow-and-spenders. When the gold price shoots up, it signals to the world that the currency upon which government Ponzi finances operate is losing value.
The Dow may once again fall to a
1:1 ratio with the gold price.
For more than four years now, my Independent Living newsletter has discretely advised my subscribers to accumulate physical precious metals. The investor flight to precious metals I predicted would occur (back when gold was quietly trading in the $400s) has, since the onset of the financial crash of 2008, been global in scope and has resulted in physical gold and silver flying off the shelves everywhere.
U.S. and Foreign Mints Are Being Slammed With
Physical Precious Metals Sales
The Richmond, Virginia-based Brinks Security corporation says it is making a record number of silver and gold deliveries to private U.S. citizens. Tony Klancic of the Chicago-based Lind-Waldock commodities brokerage says he is inundated by calls from individual investors to obtain delivery of physical gold bullion. Scott Thomas, CEO of the American Precious Metals Exchange, says of physical gold and silver sales: "We're having some of our strongest months ever... the bottom line is our numbers are probably double what they were last year, and last year was very busy."
The February 25 Wall Street Journal noted, "Investors are flocking to gold coins. At the U.S. Mint, a total of 147,500 American Eagle gold bullion coins were sold in the first two months of this year, a surge of 176% from the same period last year."
Peter Monk, Chairman of Barrick Gold Corporation (the world's largest gold producer), recently indicated he has received a significant number of calls from wealthy investors seeking to buy large amounts of physical bullion.
Getting physical gold has become so difficult that Wachovia Securities is no longer purchasing physical precious metals for its clients – opting instead for selling paper "shares" in exchange-traded funds.
Last year the Perth Mint had to stop accepting orders for physical gold and silver – the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee notes that the Perth Mint is working seven-days a week, 24-hours a days just to catch up on back orders. Located in Western Australia, Perth Mint treasurer and manager Nigel Moffatt told Bloomberg, "We're seeing a continuing, but heavy bias toward investors out of the U.S."
The Financial Times reported in February that retail investors in France have become net buyers of gold for the first time in 25 years. Such examples are almost endless.
So now that I've explained the problem, let me tell you about YOUR PERSONAL SOLUTION.
For over two years, my research staff and I have been busily preparing a brand-new, blockbuster manual with a practical, easy-to-implement game plan appropriate to inflationary times, The Dollar Destruction Defense Manual.
ALERT! Why You MUST NOT Fall for
the Illusion of "Sector Diversification"
What really motivated me to do this project is one of the biggest myths that, even now, they continue to perpetuate on Wall Street: The false security of "diversification." Your broker and the Wall Street media tout the value of diversification – and in theory they are right! BUT mostly their diversification is limited to dollar-denominated stocks and bonds. Never forget – anything denominated in dollars loses its purchasing power with each passing month.
What YOU need to know about is true diversification – among currencies, stock markets, financial instruments, commodities, and precious metals which are not tied directly to the sinking dollar. Yes, most brokers recommend investment in many sectors of the U.S. economy but this is of little value if ALL your investments are tied to a declining dollar.
Sadly, millions of Americans are going to be impoverished by the coming dollar devaluation. But you can be one of only a few select Americans who can survive and even prosper in these wildly unpredictable times.
Yes, You Should Own Some Gold – But Gold Alone Won't Be Enough

This manual goes far beyond complaining. It shows you how to prosper – especially if the coming inflation tsunami is as devastating as the indications suggest it will be. Even better, it is designed to help you without you having to make radical changes to the way you live or invest. Quite simply, it is the very best insurance policy money can buy.
Sure, there are lots of "gold bugs" out there, but this manual goes far beyond precious metals. You need a comprehensive strategy to save yourself from the government's inflation deception – not a bunch of theories, but practical steps you can take right now so you are not left holding the bag like millions of naive Americans will be.
I guarantee even if you've thought ahead and already have an inflation-hedged portfolio and lifestyle, there is a great deal to learn in my Dollar Destruction Defense Manual.

Free Bonus Report #3:
The Coming Silver Age: 10 Fundamental Reasons Why "The Poor Man's Gold" Will Explode in Price in the Years Ahead
You should understand I and my staff spent two years researching this information for my own education and planning purposes – and for my friends, family, and my cherished subscribers. That's how I know the contents of this blockbuster manual are vitally important and will stand you in good stead in the coming dollar collapse.
You don't have to be a Wall Street big-shot to benefit from its contents, either. Inflation is a hidden tax on everyone, small and large. Once you digest its contents, you will be better off than 99% of the American people. This I guarantee.
In fact once you have your copy, I urge you to "pass it around" for the education and benefit of your friends, neighbors, loved ones – and perhaps even your own investment club. That way you can help many, many people for a minimal price! You will be doing them a tremendous service.
My Personal Full One-Year Guarantee of Complete Satisfaction
Your satisfaction with this blockbuster manual is fully assured. If for any reason during the next year you don't think Independent Living is right for you, you can cancel your subscription, get a FULL refund and KEEP THE MANUAL, with my compliments!
My Dollar Destruction Defense Manual shows you how to come out ahead of the coming inflation wave just like smart people did in the 1970s – only better. You deserve no less.
So you have everything to gain and nothing to lose. You can get this blockbuster manual along with three must-read reports with a risk-free subscription – and you can cancel your trial subscription to Independent Living and still get a full refund for up to a year (and KEEP the manual and bonus reports). But you must act now. Once the masses realize they have been had, it will be far too late to protect your interests or benefit from the inside knowledge I want to send you.
If you don't take certain steps – now – you are at severe risk of being fleeced along with the rest of the American people.
Remember, there is absolutely no risk under my iron-clad guarantee and you have everything to gain by getting The Dollar Destruction Defense Manual: Everything You Need to Protect Your Way of Life Against the Coming Inflationary Ruin.
Order now – there is no time to lose!
Yours in Freedom and Prosperity,
Lee Bellinger, Publisher and Editor
