EDITOR NOTE: The end of the Government in the Sunshine Act spells the beginning of transparency, period. This Act, signed into law under President Trump in March 2020, meant you were no longer entitled to monitor the goings-on of the government in the financial sector. While the Sunshine Act was originally passed in 1976 to benefit the American public, its abolishment was passed to blind the public from the government’s fiscal maneuvers. What are they planning, and why now? "The basic premise of the sunshine legislation is that, in the words of Federalist No. 49, 'the people are the only legitimate foundation of power”...and that “Government is and should be the servant of the people, and it should be fully accountable to them for the actions which it supposedly takes on their behalf." (U.S.C.C.A.N. 2183, 2186). That era ended in March but will return as the clock strikes midnight December 31st, 2020. What will we find out about the stock market valuations? Fed Maneuvers? Why are the notes to this meeting not released until Dec 22nd to the public? Only time will tell! Buy non-CUSIP gold and silver now.
Time and Date: 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 15, 2020.
Place: The meeting is open to the public. Out of an abundance of caution related to current and potential coronavirus developments, the public’s means to observe this Board meeting will be via a Webcast live on the Internet and subsequently made available on-demand approximately one week after the event.
