Silicon Valley Bank Collapse Sends Investors Scrambling Toward Bonds, Gold
Note from Jeff: It's clear to me that the Deep State Powers-That-Be are doing everything they can to tank the dollar, which means they need massive inflation (check!) and to get rid of small local banks. The Silicon Valley Bank collapse is being followed by more banks going under, which is all going as planned by the bad guys. It's obvious that they want to force the smaller banks to go under and become absorbed by the Big Banks. This allows more control by the handful of elites ruling the world.
What can you do about it? Buy gold and silver. This article from Natural News reveals that many are turning to gold due to these collapsing banks and needing to protect their money. You can do the same. I recommend that you reach out to Our Gold Guy, who is an America First patriot and has some of the best rates in the industry, to see whether investing in gold and precious metals is right for you.

The collapse of California-based Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) sent investors scrambling toward bonds and gold to keep their assets safe.
SVB failed on March 10 after a bank run depleted its funds. The California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation subsequently seized the bank and put it under the receivership of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Three days later, on March 13, the FDIC-administered successor of the failed bank began operations.
On the same day, investors flocked to U.S. Treasury securities and gold – two assets traditionally considered safe havens during periods of economic collapse. Bond yields incidentally fell, while gold prices spiked.
The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield fell nearly 20 basis points to 3.50 percent, the lowest level since Feb. 3. Meanwhile, the yield on the two-year Treasury fell by more than 40 basis points to 4.16 percent, also the lowest in more than five weeks.
Gold prices hit their highest mark since early February at $1,893.96. U.S. gold futures also saw a 1.2 percent climb to $1,889.
“Angst about what might be ‘the next shoe to fall’ spread through the markets like wildfire,” said Oppenheimer Asset Management Chief Investment Strategist John Stoltzfus. “We continue to believe that while we are not yet out of the woods.”
SVB’s collapse marked the second-largest U.S. banking failure of all time; the 2008 collapse of Washington Mutual was the biggest.
Fed, Treasury Department bailing out SVB with “no bailouts”
The FDIC, Federal Reserve and the Department of the Treasury addressed SVB’s failure in a March 12 joint statement. They assured Americans that the deposits of everyone affected will be covered – not just those $250,000 and smaller.

“After receiving a recommendation for the boards of the FDIC and the Federal Reserve and consulting with the president, [Treasury Secretary Janet] Yellen approved actions enabling the FDIC to complete its resolution of [SVB] … in a manner that fully protects all depositors,” the statement said.
“Depositors will have access to all of their money starting March 13. No losses associated with the resolution of [SVB] will be borne by the taxpayer.”
The statement also mentioned that a similar scheme would apply to Signature Bank, which had been ordered closed by the New York State Department of Financial Services on March 12.
“All depositors of this institution will be made whole. As with the resolution of [SVB], no losses will be borne by the taxpayer,” the joint statement assured.
Health Ranger Mike Adams begged to differ, however. In a March 13 post on Natural News, he warned that FDIC’s move to insure everyone’s deposits will only bring the U.S. closer to economic collapse.
“Normally, the FDIC covers only $250,000 in deposits per person or institution. The problem is that [it] only had slightly over $100 billion in funds to carry this out, yet the total bank deposits held across America are approaching $10 trillion.”
In effect, Adams stated that the FDIC can only cover about one percent of bank deposits in America. To address this, the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve would have to print more and more money to prop up the FDIC-controlled banks that insured people’s deposits.
“This is going to dilute the value of dollars and cause huge inflation increases across all the products you normally buy – such as groceries, housing, clothing, fuel and so on. All this printed money is created as debt on the shoulders of U.S. taxpayers,” remarked the Natural News and Brighteon.com founder.
