Editor’s Disclosure: Some of the ads we run on our sites and on my shows discuss buying gold from America First precious metals companies since central banks and other entities “in the know” have been making unprecedented moves recently. The article below by Arsenio Toledo from Natural News is NOT a sponsored post. It just happens to reiterate what we’ve been warning about for a while. With that said, here’s Arsenio…
Despite claims from central banks and governments that they have avoided a greater global economic meltdown, inflation is still on the rise and recession is still on its way – and central banks are preparing for it by stockpiling even more gold.
This is according to Lynette Zang, chief market analyst of ITM trading, who warned that central banks haven’t actually been able to get inflation under control.
“You know, all those calls that things were really, ‘Maybe we would avoid a recession’ and ‘Oh, things aren’t that bad’ and ‘Maybe we’ll get a mild recession’ and ‘The central banks now have … inflation under control’ and blah, blah, blah. Well, guess what’s rearing its ugly head again? That would be more inflation,” Zang said.
New inflation indicators from the United States, China and Germany strengthened the belief of financial markets that high interest rates would be in force longer than expected.
In the U.S., prices for raw materials surged in February, strongly indicating that inflation will remain elevated. Over two weeks prior, the latest consumer price report showed that consumer prices climbed 6.4 percent in January year-over-year, only 0.1 percent down from the year-over-year increase recorded in December. Furthermore, consumer prices increased 0.5 percent from December to January, much higher than the 0.1 percent rise recorded from November to December.
Despite all of this data proving that inflation is still a persistent threat and the recession is still nearby, Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen claims the government has it under control.
“I would say, ‘So far, so good,’” said Yellen, who formerly led the Federal Reserve from 2014 to 2018. “Obviously, there are risks, and the global situation we face is very uncertain. There can be shocks from it. But look, inflation still is too high, but generally if you look over the last year, inflation has been coming down.”
Central bank gold demand skyrockets
According to the latest report from the World Gold Council, central bank gold demand in 2023 has picked up from the already-high level of demand it left off in 2022. (Related: Global DE-DOLLARIZATION is on the way as world’s central banks buy gold at fastest pace in 55 years.)
In 2022, central banks collectively added a net 31 tons to global gold reserves, a 16 percent month-over-month increase from December 2022. This is also within the 20- to 60-ton range of purchases central banks have been reporting for the last 10 consecutive months of net buying.
The largest reported central bank purchaser in January is Turkey, whose central bank added 23 tons to its official gold reserves, which now stand at 565 tons. The People’s Bank of China comes in second, adding 15 tons on top of the 62 tons of gold it reported purchasing between November and December 2022. Its reported gold reserves now total 2,025 tons, or 3.7 percent of the world’s total reported reserves.
The National Bank of Kazakhstan came in third after increasing its gold reserves by four tons, a modest sum compared to Turkey and China, but still substantial. Its total reported reserves rose to 356 tons.
“If you think about how much buying central banks have been doing really, since 2005, and more significantly, it turned as a positive net in 2010,” said Zang. “They’ve been accumulating gold, getting ready for this day. So have I. Have you? You really wanna think about it.”

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
