Introducing ‘Political Arena’

The ‘fake news’ antidote.


“If you are not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”

Malcolm X

This provocative, yet insightful quote by Malcolm X, is a value proposition for political news editor and journalist Mr Chuck Norton and his political news web publication ‘Political Arena’.

The current political news sphere is a murky bog of lies, half-truths, misrepresentations, propaganda, ulterior motives and hidden agendas.

Mainstream media seem to be doing their utmost to have you believe that:

  • Free markets are oppressive;
  • Opinion is fact;
  • Statistics are racist;
  • Popular consensus is science;
  • Mathematics is offensive;
  • Capitalism is evil; and,
  • Government loves you.

All incredibly similar to the propaganda slogans expressed by the Ministry of Truth, in George Orwell’s classic novel 1984.

  • War is peace.
  • Freedom is slavery.
  • Ignorance is Strength.

For the Financial Awakened, navigating the ‘Fake News’ and ‘Socialist Propaganda’ can be difficult and time consuming. So discovering a current, political news website, backed up by a treasure trove of truthful political and economic history – is incredibly valuable.

Introducing ‘Political Arena’.



In Mr Norton’s own words –

The contributors to this site are dedicated to explaining the values of free and fair markets, and of liberty tempered by restraint and personal responsibility…

Our goal is to explain the news of the day, along with complex economic, political, and global security issues in such a way that the average working man or student can respond to.

As a recent subscriber to the website, it did not take us long to realise that this site is a central depository for much of the current political and economy news (real news) we seek. Factual information which we had been spending many hours a week sourcing from multiple news outlets and historical journal sources.

We would encourage our subscribers to also subscribe to this site for your real news fix. Particular those interested news stemming from the US – which we all should be.

Going forward – we are considering adding a Political Arena page to the Goldsmith Money website, as our quick link to this depository of fact. Stay tuned on this.

So please head over to https://politicalarena.org/ and have a look around. If you like what you see, kindly let Mr Norton know. And by all means – please provide your feedback on this page as well.

Finally, don’t lose faith. The more people being exposed to the ‘real news’, the less power the ‘fake news’ networks will have. We must all simply do our part.

Be well.

Not such a Goodyear

… and you thought they just sold tyres.


When the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company announced their first quarter 2020 financial numbers, it was a lacklustre affair. Sales were down 15% from the year before. Unit volumes and shipments were also down and so too was the profit. In fact the company reported a $619 million loss (including impairments).

It’s Covid19 time though, so stock markets are likely to forgive and life would go on. And then the company does the unthinkable – it got political!

Conservative warnings to big corporates are now lit up in neon.

‘Get woke, go broke’.

Tired of the of the left-wing, political correct cancel culture; right-wing conservative counterculture is hitting back. And they are doing so with their wallets.

Failing to heed to the warnings and experiences suffered by corporate peers such as Gillette; Goodyear published the following employee dress code. As per usual – some disgruntled employee uploaded it onto Twitter… and then all hell broke loose.


As far as conservatives were concerned, Goodyear had elected to stand with the enemy – and a conservative boycott would ensure.

And it was not just your average run-of-the-mill conservatives calling for the boycott. This message of boycott was coming straight from the top, with US President Donald Trump tweeting –

The message to business has never been clearer.

Sell your product, but keep your politics to yourself.

Do not tell your customers how to vote, think, behave or otherwise.

Do not force your employees to adopt a single political leaning.

Do not assume that you are the authority on all that is good and righteous.

With Goodyear being one of our favourite brand of tyres, we at Goldsmith Money will not be joining in such a boycott. Regardless of how we feel however, this is going to hurt Goodyear and it will hurt badly.

And for our valued readers, the Financially Awakened, the message is also clear. Do not stand in the way of the trending conservative counterculture. This trend is growing stronger each and every day.

Happy trend surfing.

GOLDSMITH.

It’s blockchain gaming…

and early interest is high!


There are very few industries that we are more passionate about than blockchain gaming. The growth of esports has been remarkable. Blockchain gaming is merely the next step in its evolution.

Despite our confidence in the industry however, we were still surprised by recent registration numbers reported by the XAYA blockchain team. Over 12,000 people have signed up to participate in their Soccer Manager Elite (SME) phase III beta test. To have 12,000 sign up to simply test the software really is extraordinary.

SME beta test resumes this week.


Should 12,000 to signup for the main game – financial success for the game and the XAYA blockchain looks set. Though there are never any guarantees in business.

To share in the registration excitement, we produced our own (somewhat comical) YouTube report – embedded below.



People will naturally migrate to blockchain gaming as it offers the ability to ‘play to earn‘. And who doesn’t want to earn currency playing games?

Credit where credit is due though. The XAYA team has proven to be ‘A Grade marketers’ of their ‘first class products‘. Two reasons we watch this team and this blockchain – very closely.

As with the initial beta tests, we will be live streaming some of our SME game play. So if you want to learn more about the game – subscribe to the Goldsmith Money YouTube channel and join us on our journey.

Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

Appics

Beautiful social media on the blockchain


Here at Goldsmith Money we often spout the benefits of blockchain technology for the gaming industry. The trustless and decentralised ledger is perfect for the creation of massive gaming ecosystems, with financial opportunities galore.

The same may also be said for social media. Whilst Twitter and Facebook generally offer users indirect financial benefits through the promotion of their goods and services. They offer very little in the way of direct financial benefits to the true influencers and content creators on their platforms.

Introducing Appics

Appics joins the Telos blockchain – August 2020

When built upon a blockchain, social media platforms are able to rely upon the exact same decentralised ledger attributes – trustless, auditable, infallible, cost effective – to develop their own financial ecosystem. This blockchain foundation then allows for community trust in the platform and builds value within.

In building a valuable ecosystem, the blockchain social media platform is now able to distribute system earnings directly to the creators, influencers and community builders, based on their level of contribution.

The rewards will usually take the form of the native token to the platform. The value of the tokens will then be determined by the free market, through cryptocurrency exchange participants. The value will of course fluctuate. Over time however, consistent, good quality content creators, may be able to build a reliable income stream for themselves.

Appics…

is a sleek and beautiful reward based social media platform built upon the blockchain for the reasons mentioned.


Appics is not the first social media platform built upon a blockchain. However in our opinion, it is the first built to a speed, aesthetic quality and functionality high enough to take on the mainstream players for usability. And ultimately it is usability which will determine whether it is suitable for mainstream adoption.

A blockchain based social media platform will only ever be as good as the blockchain it is built upon. So it was no surprise for us to see Appics announce that they would be moving to the Telos blockchain.

Telos is arguably the fastest, most powerful and most decentralised blockchain in the world. It is also one of only a very few blockchains with built-in governance solutions. Telos has a huge technical support network, which has just recently built social media functionality into the chain itself. A testament to their capabilities.

Of course when it comes to Telos, Goldsmith Money is a token holder and highly biased as to its quality. Make no mistake however, the merger of these two platforms is most certainly value accretive for both.

So we are thrilled to bare witness to the merger and welcome Appics with open arms. See our greetings message here.



Over the next 6-8 weeks we will look to incorporate Appics into our social media tool kit, utilising this platform to build our brand and our income potential.

A consistent theme throughout Goldsmith Money is ‘Trends’. Whilst the trend into blockchain gaming is unmistakable at present, when it comes to social media, the signs are much more subtle.

What we are seeing is people now willing to move away from from the major platforms like Facebook and Twitter and into other centralised platforms such a Parler. Will this carry into Appics – only time will tell.

Something to look out for though are the celebrities. Where the celebrities go, the masses tend to follow. Should a celebrity or two turn up on Appics – mass adoption could follow shortly thereafter.

Finally – if you are still reading this article, I deem you to be one of the Financial Awakened. And as one of the Financial Awakened, you should be always questioning where you are spending your social media time and efforts. Time is money afterall.

Ask yourself, ‘do I continue investing my valuable time into Facebook and Twitter, building value for their shareholders?’

Or, ‘should I consider building value in my own brand, in conjunction with the brands of others – within a rewards focussed decentralised community?’

Money talks ladies and gentlemen – everything else is mere garble.

You can learn more about the Appics at their website here; and, I hope to see you there soon.

Covid-19 treatment and prevention data looks extremely positive…

and an effective treatment is as good as any vaccine – and cheaper too.


Let it be stated upfront that we at Goldsmith Money, do not know the first thing about medicine.

However, we imagine that medical authorities the world over must be thrilled with the data coming out about the hydroxychloroquine, zinc and antibiotic combination. A combination which is being used as a HIGHLY effective treatment against the Covid-19 coronavirus.

In an opinion article in Newsweek on 23 July, Professor of Epidemiology of the Vale Public School of Heath, Harvey A. Risch, discusses hydroxychloroquine and states –

When this inexpensive oral medication is given very early in the course of illness, before the virus has had time to multiply beyond control, it has shown to be highly effective, especially when given in combination with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline and the nutritional supplement zinc.

https://www.newsweek.com/key-defeating-covid-19-already-exists-we-need-start-using-it-opinion-1519535

Professor Risch then goes on discuss results of recent studies where the outcome for treatment is extremely positive. In one study, 400 high risk Covid19 patients were treated by Vladimir Zelenko, using the combination above – and there were zero deaths recorded.

Four other studies involving a total of 500 high risk nursing home and clinic patients, all being treated with the combination above – also recorded zero deaths.

You can read more about what Professor Risch has to say here. Even without formal medical training, it is hard not to interpret these results as highly encouraging (if not fantastic).

Is this combination the cure?

The article is indeed consistent with the statements of Dr Stella Immanuel who claims to have cured over 350 Covid19 patients using hydroxychloroquine, zinc and the Zithromax antibiotic. See her press conference video is embedded below.

Dr Stella Immanuel – Primary Care Physician Houston TEXAS

Is zinc is the key?

On 10 July, Inga Wessels, Benjamin Rolles and Lother Rink published a perspective article on Frontiers in Immunology. The article was titled ‘The Potential Impact of Zinc Supplementation on COVID-19 Pathogenesis’. A link to the article is here.

Their review examined the potential for zinc to be used an inexpensive preventative and therapeutic agent in the fight against Covid19.

Zinc is an important element in the development and function of the human immune system. Zinc is particularly important to the body in combating viruses.

As demonstrated in the diagram above, the study found that there is an impressive intersection of known risk factors for zinc deficiency (blue circle) and the predisposition for a severe COVID-19 infection (red circle).

In conclusion the study found that whilst much data was still pending, the enumerated evidence strongly suggests great benefits from zinc supplementation as a preventative against Covid-19. This was especially true for the elderly and those with chronic diseases, who might have become zinc deficient.


Assuming the medical professionals quoted in this blog are correct – could we conclude that a simple and effective treatment and preventative for Covid-19, as being just as good as a vaccination? If not better?

And of course this is Goldsmith Money – where we want to understand the monetary costs of viable alternatives.

Suggestions have been made that the combination treatment above could be distributed at a cost under $US20 per course.

At the same time, the vaccine cure cost estimates appear to be ranging between $US2,000-$US3,000 per person and is likely to be more than 12 months away.

Fiscal prudence surely dictates that Governments of the world focus their efforts on the discussed treatment and prevention therapies. And no doubt those governments would be very eager to adopt such low cost solutions to the Covid-19 pandemic.


When all is said and done, there was one world leader who saw the potential of this combination early on. This was The President of the United States, Donald Trump.

Credit must be given where credit is due. Not only was President Trump one of the first national leaders to close borders to contain the spread of the deadly virus. He was also the first leader to discuss this potential cure, leading medical professionals down the correct path of study.


A great big THANK YOU to all the new subscribers to this site and our YouTube channel.

Hi ho Silver, away.

And we are not talking about the Lone Ranger’s horse.


For the past 3 years we have been great advocates of silver. And with good reason. It is arguably the most amazing metal on Earth.

Silver is the best conductor of electricity of all the metal elements – making it a modern necessity for the myriad of electronic devices we have. Smart phones, computers, LED monitors and televisions.

Silver is an excellent conductor of heat and has a particular light sensitivity making it ideal for photovoltaic cells and photography, including radiography.

Silver has antibacterial properties. In seafaring days of old, two silver coins would be placed in a water barrel to keep the water fresh and microbe free. These days it is used for surgical bandages and in advanced antimicrobial nanotechnologies. Plus, it gets added into sports clothing to keep athletes smelling nice.

Silver is highly malleable and ductile and it does not rust. As such silver has been used a monetary metal for going on 3,000 years.

And as you can’t print silver – silver is indeed ‘Good Money’.

So why the excitement?

Image credit

For many a Silver Stacker it has seemed a very long time for the market to again recognise the true value of this amazing metal.

Three months ago the silver spot price was a mere $US15 per ounce and this was the middle of a pandemic. We say ‘mere’ as silver was trading at $US50 back in 2012 and even back in the 80s.

There were many reasons put forth on why the price of silver was so low – which we will not go into now. More importantly for the silver investor and stacker however, the silver price is now flying.

Between May and mid-July the price saw a steady rise to $US19. Over the past month it has really taken to the sky. Just 12 hours ago it looked as though it would break $US28. As I type this post now it has broken $US29 and is tapping on resistance at $US30.

In the midst of a global pandemic, geopolitical uncertainty and unprecedented levels of currency printing – investors are once again turning to the tried and tested safe haven that is SILVER.

GOLDSMITH.


To get your head around the current silver story and the physical silver shortage we are seeing – we suggest you start here.
