Liberty Under Attack: Gold and Silver Fall?!

On a day like today, the irony of gold and silver losing key psychological support levels is beyond ironic, it is ludicrous.

Unless you are living under a rock, then you will of heard that after seven years of hiding out in the Ecuadorian Embassy, Julian Assange, the founder and head of Wikileaks was forced out of asylum and arrested by the UK government.

This move, which has been highly anticipated for days caused a sudden and almost immediate flood of emotions, with some supporting the move and others screaming out in rage and shock, as they watched a disheveled Assange being dragged out of the Embassy and thrown into an awaiting police vehicle.

His appearance once again raised concerns of his well being and health, as many of his supporters have raised the issue of the damage being done on his mental health over the last seven years of being confined.

This concerns appeared to be valid, as Julian Assange without a doubt looked absolutely horrible.

Whether or not you support Julian Assange and Wikileaks as a whole likely depends on the way the political winds are currently blowing.

I remember well the entirety of the Assange saga and the work that Wikileaks has done throughout the years, exposing such things as the "Iraq War Logs" and the "leaked State Department cables".

These two very prominent leaks by Wikileaks exposed a deep level of corruption within the US government and thus he became a massive enemy of the United States bureaucrats and the deep state.

The first major leak made Assange a hero of the left, as it greatly damaged President Bush and the Republican party of the time, exposing the violent acts of torture that the military was committing overseas.

The second major leak saw the political winds change, blowing them in another direction. 

Turning the left who once idolized him, against him.

Meanwhile, since Obama was in office and it made the Democrats look negative, Republicans began to embrace Wikileaks with open arms.

This flip flopping of support for a journalistic organization that has proven itself to not be partisan should make anyone that has done so hang their heads in shame. 

Whether or not you believe or don't believe the allegations against Assange in his personal life, is up to you, however, the organization of Wikileaks itself has proven that they are only loyal to liberty and not a political party.

The truth should always be embraced.

Returning to my opening statement, it is therefore with cynical humor that I watch the ticker symbol of both gold and silver bullion trend lower throughout today's breaking news.

This news, no matter what you believe, is overall being heralded as an attack on liberty and the freedom of truth, as it is without a doubt that it was largely politically motivated.

Gold and silver which represent the embodiment of free, honest money, should be soaring higher as they watch this government crackdown unfold in real time.

Instead, we have the exact opposite, in which they have both lost important support levels, with gold falling below $1300 USD per ounce, and silver falling below $15 USD per ounce.

Sadly, it appears that today is not only finding liberty on sale, but also gold and silver as well.

However, as does truth and liberty always prevail in the end, despite how many setbacks they may face, so too will gold and silver bullion ultimately break free of their restraints and ultimately move higher.
