Bitcoin is nothing more than a distraction, created to direct widespread public worry away from concern about the eventual collapse of the Dollar’s value.
What entity would wish to distract investors’ attention away from concerns with the Dollar?
Obviously, the US Government.
Just as obviously, there is no proof of that statement. To substantiate the statement, we only have recourse to the application of what, in legal terms, is the question: Cui bono? which asks: “For whose benefit?“
The answer to that question has to be: “The US Government”.
The greatest fear that besets the US Government is the collapse of the Dollar’s value, and Bitcoin is the distractor from the menace which threatens the Dollar.
What is the menace that threatens the Dollar? The rising price of gold, which devalues the Dollar.
Conclusion: Bitcoin – and its imitators – serve to distract the attention of investors away from investing in gold.
Bitcoin functions very well, as a distractor of attention from investing in gold, because to “invest” in Bitcoin is to use the Dollar to invest in what is essentially, nothing tangible, as is physical gold. Bitcoin presents no menace to the Dollar’s value.
The mass of American investors have little or no interest in gold. Their main interest lies in making Dollar profits. The rising price of Bitcoin attracts the attention of American investors – and that is it purpose: “Think of Bitcoins, and pay no attention to investing in gold.”

Please allow me to introduce myself; I am Jeffrey Bennett, President of Kettle Moraine, Ltd., the parent of Sierra Madre Precious Metals.
I have been married for 52 years with two children and four grand-children, a veteran of Viet Nam, student of history (both American and film), and was host for fifteen years of Perspectives on America on the alternative airwaves, covering such subjects as, health and wellness, news, political satire, education and editorial commentary on current events through the teaching of history, and Protecting Your Wealth. In early 2018, I took a several month hiatus to complete some family business but returned to airwaves April 17, 2018).
At the age of ten, I sat in a bank-vault in the Citizens Bank of Mukwanago, Wisconsin with my grandfather going through bags of old American Peace dollars, hand-selecting each coin as dated rolls of 20 coins were carefully put together and rolled. Learning of the history of these beautiful pieces of Americana, I asked my grand-father, "Why are we doing this?" to which he replied, "Because someday they are going to do the same thing with the silver in our money that, that (S.O.B.) Roosevelt did with gold in 1933." It took only six-years for his prediction to come to pass at the hands of a disciple of Roosevelt's... and what will a Federal Reserve 'dollar' purchase today - and what will that old 90% Silver Peace Dollar purchase?
Although at the age of ten, there was little understanding of the meaning of it all, over the next half-century I became well-versed on the subject matter. During this summer of my education, I began to purchase silver coins as a collector and some small, international gold coins two years later - not an easy feat in the shadow of the Roosevelt confiscatory policies of 1933. Although those policies remained in effect until the mid-1970's, it was not until 1991 that I found that one could make a living providing precious metals and collectible, historic numismatic coins to a willing and concerned clientele.
It was also during that year, that I began a relationship with one of the first Trust companies to give the public access to gold and silver as part of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) - and Kettle Moraine, Ltd., founded in 1995, but have ceased providing service due the the intense change-over of the provider.
In November 2011, after a 15 month broadcast on another network, I returned to the airwaves with my then revamped program, Life, Liberty & All That Jazz, and for over a quarter-century, I have been proud to serve the family of listeners of my numerous broadcast programs for physically-held precious metals for investors and collectors alike. On March 23, 2020 I launched my brand new - appropriately named program, The Edge of Darkness on the Republic Broadcasting Network, and thus continue to remain available to our long time clients and their families. Ah yes - find out what "inter-generational" wealth provision has done for our clients over the past three decades.
Don't buy the sizzle of that steak until you understand the cost! In other words, don't buy the bull being dispensed by the 'rare coin' pitchmen until you understand the full story. We, at Sierra Madre Precious Metals, will be proud to serve your needs.
