With the situation in Greece becoming extraordinarily dangerous, today Nigel Farage told King World News that Greece is nearing a full blown revolution.

John Embry, Chief Investment Strategist of the $10 billion strong Sprott Asset Management told KWN that we have seen “peak gold.” He also filled us in on what the Greek situation really means for gold: “Gold is in a bit of a stranglehold here and has been since almost the beginning of February.
