will the next terrorist strike on America be by Almanac carrying crazies, or will it be

Personal Notation to preceed reposting:
This reposting is obviously, on one-level: a sales pitch, and again, on another level: an in-
formed look into the financial future. While certainly, no one can tell exactly how the future
will enfold, it is accepted that informed people are abled to discern trends and time-frames
that are just as good as "crystal ball gazing" or "prophecy spewing", or much better actually.
This reposting is offered with a personal sharing of my own personal "experience" which is:
when Nixon lifted the ban on gold in 1971 for American's, this poster happened to be young
recent graduate from engineering college working in Alaska, where I'd managed to save a
whooping sum of $3,900+ (good money at the time) from summer OT, and needed to invest
it quickly (rather than drink it up at Chilkoot Charlies night club) and happened to have come
across an Investment Alert a young real estate broker friend of mine passed over to me to
give serious consideration as investment "opportunity"...the newsletter was by C. V. Myers,
the author of this investment alert's father. I was caught by the "gold bug" and invested my
entire summer's savings, buying some 110 troy oz. total @ roughly $ 36.05 per oz. as I re-
call the exact figures, and simply got a bank Safety Deposit Box and put it all in there. Now,
fast forward till 1980-81 time frame...I'd grown a decade older, a bit wiser, and suddenly
had become a single-parent to 3 little kids..5 yr, 4 yr, and 10 month old...and was facing a
financial ruin as I had enormous costs incurred arising from the family crisis, and was in-
deed wringing my hands wondering what to do?
Financial opportunity came knocking in the form of rampant inflation to the US economy and
the then worsten world's political crisis (hostage situation in Iran, turmoil in Saudi Arabia, the
collapse of Carter administration, change in Fed policy, and Republican push to get Reagan
in office)...which got so bad, that significant quantities of the world's capital fled to gold in a
relatively short period of time...the daily spot market price from gold took off...eventually hitting
a high well in excess of $ 800, and on one day, even hit $ 908; before maxing out, and then it
turned down for deeper drops till leveling off at various stages. I wished I could say I had the
nerve to ride it all the way up to $ 800- $ 900+, but I didn't...I was just too chickenshit afraid,
and so, sold out all at the $ 636 spot price...giving me a total of $ 69,965...a $ 66,000 profit
in 10-years that allowed me to meet all emergency financial obligations then current, pocket
the balance and quickly relocate to an island in the Caribbean for a few years of "easy living"
so I could regain my bearings, heal from severe personal trauma experiences (as well as
my little kids too!) and learn to play "single daddy" without all the usual stresses American
society lays upon one at such time...it all made the difference in my life and that of my kids,
for the laid-back Caribbean-island "experience" was what literally saved us, and we all still
look back so fondly on those few years as the best of our lives.
I don't tell all this to be bragging, but to tell YOU that someimes there is more to these so-
called "conspiracy theorists" Investment Alerts than meet the eye, and if one is willing to
suspend "normal social conditioning" and be "open-minded", then TRUTH will be able to
get inside your brain, and then once there, you are given a CHOICE...accept or reject...the
choice always yours...no one forces you to make it really...it's yours to decide. I personally
am ever so thankful that I had a friend that cared enough in 1971 to pass along a "tip" to
me that I then read, studied, even prayed over it (believe it or not!)...cause $ 3,900+ was the
most $ I'd ever held in my hand at one time then (folk's..this was when a dollar was indeed
a dollar and had "value"!) and I was so afraid of being a fool with it...but, when faced with a
choice of what to do...options were either "accept" or "reject"...I accepted it, stashed it away
in bank box, and held it nearly 10 years to the date when I honestly need any money...all of
the original $3,900+ would have been fine...and, to my pleasant surprise, I was suddenly
comfortably financially set enough to weather the personal/family crisis in a style/means
that allowed for success. Even though my world then had collapsed into chaos, as will a
great many in the days ahead arising from economic collapse, due to informed choice I'd
made 10 years before, I was abled to survive the crisis.
This is NOT a tale told to get you to accept Meyer's advice, for I get not one f***ing penny
either way...it's simply a means to tell you my TRUTH, so that you may benefit, if it is so
deemed applicable to your circumstances, and give you courage to meet your choices
without letting "normal social conditioning" dictate which one you decide upon...that's all!
So...if interested in what's ahead insofar as the economic-picture is likely to be soon, and
in possible remedy available to you to mitigate it's impact upon you. May you profit as result!
Daily Reckoning Investment Alert
Editor's Note: Due to popular demand we are re-broadcasting the Investment Alert regarding Gold Dinars -- an incredible new secret currency. This may be an opportunity that you do not want to miss. Please read below.
The Daily Reckoning
1,300-Year-Old Gold DAGGER PLUNGES DEEP into America's Financial HEART!
U.S. Dollar Plummets to RECORD LOW -- Stocks and Bonds on Brink of Major Crash!
But, in the midst of this CRISIS, a handful of savvy investors are quietly taking positions in an incredible NEW SECRET CURRENCY that is likely to SKYROCKET 332%... 668%... or MORE as the U.S. dollar continues to fall...
Intelligence data, extracted through aggressive interrogation of al Qaeda operatives at Guantamano Bay Military Base, confirms a massive economic terror attack by radical Islam is under way.
And while the cold-blooded atrocities of Sept.11 were horrific, al Qaeda's new plot could send the U.S. economy into an absolute death spiral!
There isn't much time. Let me explain...
Islam was founded around A.D.700. And from the very beginning, Muslims used a gold coin called a Gold Dinar as their form of money. The Gold Dinar remained the official Islamic currency until the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1924... when it disappeared for 77 years.
But on Nov. 7, 2001 -- less than two months after the TERROR STRIKES of Sept. 11 -- the Islamic Dinar was officially re-launched by the Islamic Mint in West Malaysia and is now available to the public.
Although a beautiful coin, the Gold Dinar posses a DEADLY threat to the U.S. economy! In fact, its supporters believe the Gold Dinar will become the official currency of more than 1.5 BILLION Muslims worldwide. And radical Islam is urging Muslims worldwide to drop the U.S. Dollar and adopt the Gold Dinar as their primary currency!
Why? They are determined for the Gold Dinar to bring about the DEMISE of the U.S. dollar!
Almost nobody has caught on to this yet. But the attack is very real!
In fact, since the reissue of the Gold Dinar in November 2001, the U.S. Dollar has dropped to a RECORD LOW against the euro... while the price of gold has SOARED from about $280 per ounce to an 8-year RECORD HIGH of over $410 per ounce!
And this is just the beginning!
As the dollar continues to drop, the already shaky stock market is nearly certain to crash. Unprepared investors could lose BILLIONS!
But there is something YOU can do to save yourself... because the radicals' plot has a FLAW in it!
A shimmering flaw that could make you very rich... very soon!
You see, a NEW Secret Currency has just emerged on the market. A Secret Currency so brand-new that even Wall Street doesn't know about it yet!
And get this: The Secret Currency is NOT at the mercy of the falling U.S. dollar! In fact, as the U.S. dollar FALLS LOWER... the Secret Currency SOARS HIGHER!
And in the coming months, as the dollar continues to fall, the Secret Currency is likely to SKYROCKET 332%... 668%... or more!
Now, with your permission, I'd like to send you a Free Special Report. It's called:
"The Secret Currency: How to Beat Bin Laden to the Punch -- AND Capture Gains of 668% or More as the U.S. Dollar Falls!"
The report will show you exactly how you can join a handful of investors already taking positions in the NEW secret currency that is poised to SKYROCKET 332%... 668%... or more as this vicious plan unfolds.
Let me tell you more!
It's no coincidence that Osama bin Laden chose to strike the World Trade Center on Sept. 11...
Because, the World Trade Center represents the heart and soul of the U.S. economy. And destroying the U.S. economy is the main pillar of bin Laden's strategy to bring down the United States.
Look: Bin Laden runs al Qaeda like a Fortune 500 corporation. And he is VERY aware of the U.S. financial situation. He understands our vulnerabilities and how to exploit our current economic situation.
Just take a look at this statement from bin Laden himself, posted on the Al Jazeera Arab News Web site from Oct. 19, 2003:
"My congratulations to you on your blessed efforts and jihad.
"You have indeed slaughtered the enemy and have pleased the hearts of all Muslims, particularly the Palestinian people. You will be rewarded by God the Almighty. Thank you for your jihad and may God help you.
"...[America has] a budget deficit for the third consecutive year. This year, the deficit reached a record peak of more than US$4.5 billion.
"Praise be to Allah."
As despicable as he is, bin Laden is very financially sophisticated. He knows that the U.S. is struggling with a huge trade deficit -- AND a huge budget deficit. And he realizes the U.S. dollar is weak and getting weaker all the time. That's why attacking the U.S. dollar -- and sending the U.S. financial markets into a violent plunge -- is at the center of his plan!
And bin Laden isn't alone is his scheme to crush the U.S. economy! In fact, he's trained thousands of militant jihad warriors to carry out his evil plot... even if he is captured tomorrow!
Economic Jihad Is Gaining Momentum!
According to the International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism in Herzlia, Israel, Abd al Aziz Rantisi, the leader of the terrorist group Hamas recently published a written statement on the Hamas Web site calling on Muslims all over the world to wage economic Jihad against the United States. In his statement, Rantisi said that hatred of all Americans is a religious duty for all Muslims, and that targeting the U.S. economy will destroy the United States.
Make no mistake: Radical Islam wants to destroy the U.S. economy with every single ounce of hate in their bodies.
And now, the Gold Dinar gives them a powerful way to send the U.S. dollar -- the ultimate symbol of American wealth and economic prowess -- crashing!
Can radical Islam convince Muslims to use the Gold Dinar instead of the U.S. dollar?
You better believe it!
Look: If bin Laden can convince desperate people to strap on DYNAMITE and blow themselves to bits in the name of Allah, you can be ABSOLUTELY certain radical Islam can convince people to trade in U.S. paper dollars for real gold!
Why? It's pretty simple...
The Muslim World Is ANGRY at the United States -- And It's Not Just the Terrorists!
Many Muslims believe that the United States is responsible for the enormous devastation suffered by hundreds of millions of Muslims during the Asian Currency Crisis of 1997. This ANGER will provide a powerful incentive for Muslims to get even with the United States by selling dollars and buying Islamic Gold Dinars.
Just take a look at this quote from the Islamic Mint Web site:
"... he heard the Messenger of Allah say: "'A time is certainly coming over mankind in which there will be nothing [left] which will be of use save a dinar...'"
-- Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal
I think it's obvious. These folks don't just want the dollar to drop, they want the U.S. dollar to disappear . Permanently!
And just listen to what Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammed had to say:
"If we want to avoid being short-changed we must have a currency that has intrinsic value... If we want to protect ourselves we must evolve our own payment system, our own trading currency."
Let me read between the lines for you:
Mohammed believes that the U.S. financial system is responsible for the Asian Currency Crisis of 1997. And he is urging Muslims to drop the dollar and use the Gold Dinar.
Radical Best Seller List
There is a book by a radical Muslim, Umar Ibrahim Vadillo, called The Return of the Gold Dinar.
According to Wired magazine, author Vadillo explains via e-mail.
"You want to be radical?
"You don't need to blow up the bank, just burn your bank account. And for that you are going to need an alternative. What is the alternative? Dinar."
What is Vadillo saying? I think it's very clear. He's telling his readers that if they want to hurt America, they don't need to blow up a bank or carry out a suicide attack. They simply need to drop the U.S. dollar... in favor of the Gold Dinar.
The 92-page paperback is practically flying off the bookshelves in the Muslim world, and it's also getting worldwide exposure via the Internet.
Momentum is growing behind the push for the Gold Dinar. And there's something else driving the Dinar. Something very powerful indeed.
The Koran Says: "Buy Gold!"
One of the main pillars of the Islamic faith is the observance of Zakat, which dictates that Muslims must give at least 2 1/2 % of their income to the poor. And get this: Zakat can only be paid with REAL MONEY! That means that Zakat cannot be paid with a PROMISE to pay, which is what a U.S. Dollar is!
Let me repeat that: The U.S. Dollar is NOT a tangible asset. Rather, it is a promise to pay -- an IOU -- backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. But, as a promise to pay, it cannot fulfill one of the main pillars of the Islamic faith!
The Gold Dinar meets a religious need in Islam! The dollar does not! Religious leaders are now pushing Muslims to use the gold dinar. As you can imagine, religious pressure can be extremely persuasive. And this one single fact could drive Muslims to drop dollars and buy Gold Dinars.
1.5 Billion Muslims...Dumping Dollars for Gold
Let's consider the effects on gold -- and the broader financial markets -- as Muslims start to unload their U.S. dollar reserves to buy Gold Dinars. There are approximately 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide. AND there is a limited supply of gold in the world.
So, as the demand for gold increases, and as the available supply starts to dwindle... the price of gold will soar!
And we're already seeing this happen. Listen to this:
Gold hit about $850 per ounce back in 1980. It then entered a 19-year bear market... and the price of gold dropped to about $250 per ounce...
BUT: Since the launch of the Gold Dinar on Nov. 7, 2001, the price of gold has SOARED to an 8-year record high of over $410 per ounce... while the U.S. dollar has dropped to a record low against the euro!
But this increase is just the beginning!
In fact, I believe we are at the very beginning of a bull market in gold... the likes of which the world has never seen. In the coming months, the already weak dollar will continue to drop, and gold will continue to rise. People who position themselves early will become wealthy... with little effort... and very limited risk.
Make no mistake: NOW is the time to BUY GOLD!
But what is the BEST WAY to profit from gold?
Should you buy Gold Dinars?
Well... you could. But there is a MUCH BETTER ... MUCH EASIER... and MUCH SAFER way to profit from the gold!
And, in a minute... I'll tell you about the new Secret Currency that could generate 668% gains or more as gold takes off.
But first, let's look at a couple more reasons WHY AN EPIC GOLD SPIKE is imminent!
Forget About Bin Laden...The U.S. Government Is Driving Gold Higher!
Even if bin Laden's strike on the U.S. economy fails, the price of gold is still headed through the roof. You see, the price of gold and the dollar generally move in opposite directions.
And, the U.S. Government is now in a position where it WANTS AND NEEDS an even weaker dollar.
The United States is experiencing the worst trade deficit in history... and the largest budget deficit as well. A weaker dollar would allow the United States to compete internationally by providing cheaper goods, which would help reduce the trade deficit. And it would also help the economy, boost job creation, reduce deflationary pressures and ease the debt burden by cheapening the dollars owed.
These factors are all a political positive from a U.S. perspective, and with an election coming up in 2004, the dollar is going to continue to drop... while gold continues to rise.
And here's another reason gold prices are going to take off...
In 2002, the Shanghai Gold Exchange opened and started free trade in gold for the first time in China's history. And even more recently, China legalized gold investment by private citizens!
Considering the high savings rate in China, gold is a logical investment. And the demand for gold is soaring in China!
It's estimated that the equivalent of $36 billion in Chinese private investment could move into gold in coming years. Plus, the Chinese government is moving to increase its low 2% gold reserves. If these predictions come to pass, China alone will consume 40% of the world's entire gold production for years to come.
The Japanese are piling into gold as well... because their banks are being crushed under the weight of roughly half a TRILLION DOLLARS of bad debts!
All of this points to a rapidly increasing demand for gold... a demand that will send gold prices to historic high... and turn a handful of early investors into overnight millionaires!
And Here's the Kicker...
As I said before, there's a limited supply of gold in the world. In fact, if you gathered up all the gold that has ever been discovered, you could fit it to ALL in a very large room!
So, as the demand for gold rises -- and the available supply shrinks -- panic will strike as people scramble desperately to buy gold.
Just imagine the hysteria that will occur when Muslim countries start to demand gold as payment for oil! People worldwide would rush to move out of U.S. dollars... and into gold!
But unfortunately, there won't be any gold left!
The BBC Reports That al Qaeda Is Already Buying Gold!
Al Qaeda is already stocking up on gold. And why wouldn't they? The more gold they have... the less available for the United States. And I can assure you: When Wall Street finds out what is going on... they will STORM the gold market... looking to buy every bit of gold they can find.
Please understand: An astronomical rise in gold is under way! Since the launch of the Gold Dinar in November 2001, gold prices have risen over 40%... and are hitting 8-year highs!
But it's only the beginning!
I believe we are at the very early stages of an epic gold bull market -- the sort of bull market that most investors have never seen. It's been more than three decades since gold soared 2,200% from $35 an ounce in 1971 to a peak of more than $800 in the early 1980s.
The coming year could put those gains to shame as gold demand escalates worldwide... And if you get in early... you could literally join the mega-wealthy practically overnight!
So... WHAT is the best way to buy gold?
WARNING: Not All Gold Is Equal!
I grew up around gold.
In fact, my father was the famous gold bug C.V. Myers. I was by his side in the 1970s when he told investors to buy gold at $35 per ounce... and then watched as gold jumped to over $800 per ounce...
People who listened made millions!
But despite the incredible profits people made in the 1970s, I have NEVER seen a better opportunity to profit from gold than the one which exists... right now!
My name is John Myers, and I'm the editor of Outstanding Investments, an investment advisory bulletin specializing in natural resources. Things like oil... natural gas... water... and, of course, gold.
We cover the world, digging for profit opportunities that Wall Street has no clue about. In fact, when Wall Street finally does shows up, we're already there waiting for them to drive our profits into the stratosphere!
And that is exactly what is about to happen with an amazing new opportunity...
...which I call the Secret Currency.
Now, without giving away the secret, I can tell you the Secret Currency is, as you might suspect, a form of gold. But it's not your typical gold investment. It has nothing to do with Gold Dinars, gold coins, gold mining stocks, options, futures or gold bullion. In fact, it's much better!
And I can assure you: You've never heard of this... because it's brand new! And it offers a staggering profit potential like:
668% Gains in 11 Months!
"I almost 'bailed out' awhile ago when gold and oil took a dip, but followed your advice and stayed with it. I'm up 28% with only your recommendations in my portfolio ."
-- Bill B., Outstanding Investments Subscriber
I started calling for my readers to buy gold back in 2001... about the time the Islamic Mint started talking about issuing the Gold Dinar. I knew something big was on the horizon. And one of the first opportunities I spotted was a tiny gold and copper miner called Metallica Resources.
I recommended Metallica Resources in February 2001... 9 months before the launch of the Gold Dinar.
As I mentioned, the Islamic Mint issued the Gold Dinar on Nov. 7, 2001...
Just two months after the launch of the Gold Dinar, in January 2002, I told my readers to take profits on Metallica... and we locked in gains of 668%!
That's 668% gains in 11 months!
Was the Gold Dinar responsible for these massive gains? It sure didn't hurt... but as I said before... there are many factors driving gold prices higher...
And the good news is, it's just the beginning of an epic bull market in gold!
Since December 2001, my Outstanding Investment readers have been able to pulled in 84% average gains! And 77% of our closed positions have settled on the plus side!
Over the last few years, we've seen gains of:
332% on Glamis Gold!
151% on Wheaton River Minerals!
158% on Tocqueville Gold!
The list goes on and on! Just take a look at some of our current portfolio holdings:
American Century Global, up 245%!
Coeur d'Alene Mines, up 260%!
Atacama Minerals, up 75%!
Harmony Gold, up 200%!
Newmont Mining, up 140%!
Cameco Corp., up 125%!
Anglo American PLC, up 110%!
As you can imagine, many of my Outstanding Investment readers are very happy. In fact, some of them are getting flat-out rich!
Now... I'd like very much to help you profit from gold, as well.
In fact, I'd like nothing better than to see you become an overnight millionaire in the coming gold bull market. It can happen! And it will... for a handful of people who are in the right place at the right time.
Will you be one of them? It's really up to you!
You see, I have isolated a NEW way to buy gold... an amazing opportunity called the Secret Currency. It's hands-down the best way to profit from gold I've ever seen! Visit the link below and let me tell you about it now.
