Jim Rogers’ Warning: Riots Coming To America (GLD, SLV, TZA, AGQ, SDS)

Dominique de Kevelioc de Bailleul: Speaking with the Wall Street Journal on Friday, commodities trader Jim Rogers of Rogers Holdings said riots such as the ones witnessed in Greece and reported as widespread in China will hit the United States and again in Europe as the next leg down in the financial crisis takes shape (after the election, he speculates in previous interviews). Get my next ALERT 100% FREE

“I’m more worried about those kind of problems [rioting] in the U.S. and Europe; this is where social unrest is going to be worse,” Rogers told the Journal.  “I would suspect that, when economic conditions get worse here and get worse in Europe, we’re going to see . . . you’ve seen governments fail in Europe; you’ve seen countries fail in Europe. I suspect you’re going to see more of it [rioting], yes.

“We saw it in London; we’ve seen it in several countries in Europe in the last year or two.  Yes, I expect to see it here, too.  If you don’t, look out your window” GET A FREE TREND ANALYSIS FOR ANY STOCK HERE!


When asked about Bernanke’s credibility regarding his latest FOMC public statement, in which he said the Fed will be able to contain inflation, Rogers became noticeably irritated.

“Mr. Bernanke has zero credibility as far as I’m concerned.  The Federal Reserve has zero credibility,” Rogers said forcefully.   “Simon, go back at everything Mr. Bernanke has said in the last seven or eight years he’s been in Washington.  He’s never been right about anything.  The man has zero credibility for anyone who would take the time to look at his history.”

As far as further inflation down the road, Rogers stated inflation is already in the pipeline, and will manifest in higher commodities and consumer prices—of which, historically, have lagged money supply expansion by six months to one year.

As of the week ending Apr. 25, 2012, the Fed reported its balance sheet reached a total of $2.92 trillion, up from $2.71 trillion a year ago, and up from $920 billion in March 2008—well before the brunt of the financial crisis took its toll on markets later in 2008 and early 2009.

A tripling of the Fed’s balance sheet within fours years won’t be the extent of the damage to the Fed’s debt monetizing scheme and the value of the U.S. dollar, according to Rogers, who sees much more Fed money printing to come as well as consumer price inflation as a result.

“Absolutely, they’ve been printing staggering amounts of money; they’ve been taking staggering amounts of debt onto their balance sheet, much of it is garbage,” said Rogers.  “The federal government is spending huge amounts of money they have.  We have inflation in the U.S., and it’s going to get worse, Simon.”

Rogers said investors have it easier today than prior to the crisis.  It’s a heads-you-win, tails-you-win scenario.  The emergence of Asia as a source of consumption of raw materials and finished goods will exact pressure on harder-to-find natural resources.  If demand is crippled by the financial crisis, however, central banks will respond by debasing their respective currencies, forcing smart money into ‘things’ as a means of protecting wealth.

“In times of inflation . . . that’s put it this way, if the economy gets better there will be shortages of those raw materials and I’m going to make money,” Rogers explained.  “If the economy doesn’t get better Simon, they’re going to print a lot more money.  Mr. Bernanke doesn’t know anything else but to print money.  And throughout history when governments debase the currency, you protect yourself by owning real assets, whether it’s silver or rice, or whatever it happens to be.” [Emphasis added]

Rogers’ take on the most popular asset class among investors who follow the American expat who now lives in Singapore—gold—is that, he holds the precious metal (and by extension, silver) as a reliable means of storing value during a globally coordinated money-printing policies executed among the world’s major central banks.  He also discusses the virtues of owning oil as a play on ‘Peak Oil’ in addition to currency debasements. GET A FREE TREND ANALYSIS FOR ANY STOCK HERE!

“I own both [gold and oil] of them,” Rogers said.  “Gold has been up 11 years in a row which is extremely unusual for any asset.  It’s consolidating; it wouldn’t surprise me if it continued to consolidate.  If it goes down a lot more, I hope I buy a lot more.  I’m not selling my gold by any stretch of the imagination.”

Rogers added about oil, “The surprise with oil is going to be how high it stays and how high it goes.  Simon, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has done a study.  The world’s known reserves of oil are in steady decline.  We have to find a lot of oil or the price of oil is going to unheard of heights.”

    WHEN THE RIOTS START HERE THERE IS NO ARMY HERE TO STOP THE RIOTS

    For years I have been concerned, fearful about the state of our nation and have been vocal about it, warning people of the collapse of our economy & the effects it is going to have on the USA as a society. On 09/24/08 I tried to resign my rights as a US Citizen & seek refuge in Australia. The people at the Australian Embassy seemed as though they wanted to listen to me but a US marine removed me from the embassy & onto the streets of DC.He told not to enter the embassy again & told me i needed to talk to the dept. of state. A person at the Australian embassy was told to write the address down by the marine. He wrote Dept of State 1608 New Hampshire Ave.wich is not the dept of state. (Zimbabwe Embassy) Once at the Dept of state i attempted to hand in my social security card & seek protection. I was refused 2 men came out, talked to me at length I told them what I’m saying here.

    I believe when the dollar collapses & is replaced as the reserve currency in the world, there will be blood shed in America. Americans against Americans, Crypts against Bloods, Blacks against Whites An Army that’s unarmed & out of country, shadow boxing in the desert chasing fleas in the sand. A National guard that will turn tail & run, An unprepared unarmed people except the outlaws. Why bother bombing America? Give them more pills.

    WHEN THE RIOTS START HERE THERE IS NO ARMY HERE TO STOP THE RIOTS

     

    I Plead with you if you are an ambassador or dignitary at any embassy that receives this letter. Please quietly & orderly notify your citizens in the US to quickly prepare to exodus the USA before the dollar collapses for safety of their lives. If unable to leave the US i will not get involved in the aftermath of the dollar’s collapse & pray that when over there will be something left to re-build. I’m a legally blind person who has worked as a sign artist my entire life that receives no government subsidies. I am a hard working self sufficient independent person. If your anAustralian business person & would allow me to work for you or assist me in finding a work sponsor allow me the opportunity to work in your nation I’d be eternally thankful & assure you that you will never regret having faith in my words. If you have relatives in the United States please compell them to return to their home country prior to the collapse of the UNITED STATES

    STRANGE… that no american illiterate saw fit to correct the article and fix its obvious errors!

    The ‘riots in Europe’ lasted a couple of days almost TWO YEARS ago and involved no more than a few hundred people in nations with MILLIONS of people!

    The ‘riots in Britain’ lasted a few days and were NOT BECAUSE OF THE ECONOMY but because a drug dealer was shot by police and involved no more than 100 people nationwide… YET the following day 5000 PEOPLE took to the street WITH BRUSHES AND LITTER-PICKERS to show their contempt for the rioters and to show their desire to clean up this beautiful country. So much for painting us all as violent rioting savages, usa!

    We are not americans… we are not animals!

    Keep your amero-centric racism to yourself, usa.

    You WILL have riots. Please hurry up. We need to be free of american influence and I can’t think of a faster way for us to be free of you.

    You and your chumps have it all wrong. The NWO *IS* the usa and we want an end to your running of the world.
    We want to be free of YOU!
    Please perish soon and don’t make so much fuss about it… you’re *only* americans after all!

    There are only 300m of you… there are 6.5b of us!!

    @Vietnam Vet

    What is happening to you and the rest of America is nothing short of criminal. I feel very badly for you. I would love to be able to do something for you and rest of those suffering in the United States. The conditions we see today were never meant to happen. Our constitution was written in such a way that THE PEOPLE are the ones who guide and direct the officials THEY elected into office. That is not what is happening.

    If you notice, somewhere along the way, our government was hi-jacked, from within. It was done by deceit, subterfuge, manipulation, and the money they stole from us, in the form of taxes and selling us shoddy goods. And it continues today, and becomes worse with each passing week.

    Any laws passed today that are against the people are not valid laws – not laws, at all. Our constitution allows a way for us to stop today’s tyranny. We are slipping quickly down the slope to the old days of feudalism, where the ‘king’ rules………………

    White Americans really do need to stock up on guns, ammo, water, medicines, trade goods and food. The Jews want racial discord and friction and are using the Trayvon Martin case, via the media in which is an arm of the Jewish-occupied government. Our government wants a civil uprising as it will give them the excuse to confiscate our guns, to cancel Constitutional Rights and install a one world Jewish government. It is no accident the new building standing where the World Trade Center once stood is now called the “One World Trade Center”. These scum and their families all need to be sent back to hell to dwell with their father, the Devil. Since they want an uprising, we should not only give it to them but kill off their armed minions and even the overlord’s families as an object lesson that we won’t take it anymore. We can destroy them all despite their wonder weapons and send them to be with their father the Devil in hell.

    I received a letter from the treasury department two months ago. It stated that I use too man RX from the VA, therefore they take 15% off my Social Security Check to pay for these “Free” medications. I suffer from Agrophobia, Diabettes, HEART DISEASE, had tripple heart bi pass. Constant tachardia. Mr. Dr. says I have a 40% chance of a stroke. So I would like to thank our United States Government for giving me free medication on a yearly income of $8,500.00 that they now take away 15%. Oh I forgot my atrial friblation in my heart. Thanks America, you really take care of you VETS. I’m sorry that I made SO much money that you felt you had to do this. I should have started Sylondra insterad.

    White Americans had better be stocking up on guns, ammo, and food. The feces is going to hit the fan. Our very own government, which was behind the murder of over 3,000 Americans in the world trade center false flag attack, is inciting racial discord and friction using the major media which is an arm of the government. Our government wants a civil uprising as it will give them the excuse to confiscate our guns and to cancel Constitutional Rights. Our Masters are behind this and it is part of the plan to install a one world government. It is no accident the new building standing where the World Trade Center once stood is now called the “One World Trade Center”. These are the Devils own seed that are now in control and have enslaved us goy. Our Masters want a population thinning. Let’s send them back to hell to dwell with their father, the Devil.

    Maybe when there is massive rioting American’s will have wished they elected Ron Paul. If they elected anyone but Ron Paul it’s hard to have any sympathy for them

    not sure what your point is? inflation will lower spending habits, but this does not erase inflation. Q4 is coming whether spending habits change or not, the government needs money and yours will be worth less. When money is worth less…….. prices go up. Simple math. Your reasoning works in a one country world where the dollar is the only game in town. we have been saved a good deal by a very weak euro. if the euro ever goes away, our problems will not. some country out there will one day have money that is WAYYYY more attractive than that of tio sam. when that happens, our money buys even less, and less.. and so on. So…. people can buy fewer oranges, or boxes of cereal, but if you print money, your money is worth less. if you borrow instead of print, the impact is slower but he unwinding will be just as painful. later

    Hi! Patrons

    Hi!, Patrons E T F Daily News Et Al:
    We have logged onto inflation only to wip deflation again which translates into a kind of economic stagflation while we await November after which we can kick the inflation can down the road again trying to beat deflation before it translates into a harsh landing recovery that’s long overdue. We are living in a Physician heal thyself economic climate but the Physicians are hard of hearing. Who needs transparency and responsibility when lethargy is the road of least resistance? We have been lethargic for more than 40 years which means it’s even more deep seated than habit. Change is always a pain in the butt literally and so we need to bend over and take it like a man/woman!

    Hi – The problem I have with this argument is it does not take into consideration that U.S. peak spending will peak in August 2012 (approx).

    I believe that western asset prices will fall but speculation will push gold up. Share prices & commodities will tumble and so will everything else(except unemployment)

    When the U.S. economy slumps even further then the Asian countries will slump too.

    How do you explain Thailands’ shrinking economy (-9% YoY)if the rest of Asia is doing so well?

    I am sorry but these successful investors have comfortably ridden the baby-boomer curve for 40 years and do not really know any different.
