Silver eagle sales explode; currency competition act proposed again; Lyster leaves RT for Yahoo


9:35p ET Monday, January 7, 2013

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Mike Zielinski reports at Coin Update that first-day orders to the U.S. Mint for 2013 1-ounce silver eagles exploded to nearly 4 million coins, which appears to be a record:

Zielinski also reports at Coin Update that U.S. Rep. Paul Broun Jr., R-Georgia, has reintroduced former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul's "Free Competition in Currency Act," which apparently would get the U.S. government out of the money business and thus presumably out of the currency and gold market manipulation business, and incidentally nullify the conviction of Liberty Dollar founder Bernard von Not Haus for issuing "counterfeit" coins that were always worth far more than the coins they were supposedly impersonating:

If it wouldn't get in the way of GATA's federal tax exemption, we might propose the "Hold the Bastards Accountable All the Time Act," requiring every official of the U.S. Treasury Department and Federal Reserve to be tailed around the clock by camera operators from the Bureau of Accountability, whose video feeds would be broadcast simultaneously on the Internet. Section 2 of the act would limit bathroom visits to five every 24 hours with a maximum visit duration of five minutes each.

Meanwhile, Lauren Lyster, hostess of the Russia Today television network's "Capital Account" program, which often has dared to examine the possibility of gold market manipulation, has announced her departure from Russia Today to take a position with the "Daily Ticker" program at Yahoo Finance:

We hope that Lyster will have at Yahoo Finance the same independence she had at Russia Today.
