Summer 2013 Begins
The calendar may not say so. Mother Nature may not agree. But, tonight, summer of 2013 begins and it picks up where summer 2012 failed to go.
Let's take a walk down Memory Lane, shall we? Let's start here with our old friend, Blythe Masters. In April of last year, she appeared on CNBS to "explain" the JPM position in silver. Watch this carefully, being sure to note how Ms. Masters characterizes JPM's business practices.
Prices stabilized through the early summer but failed to mount a rally. On August 7, 2012, the Wicked Witch and Ruprecht stopped by TFMR once again. The Witch was feeling quite pleased with herself, gloating after a successful beatdown of price from $37 to $26.
The very next day, yours truly crafted a strange post. No charts. Not even any text. Just a video from the 1950s. "Weird. Ole Turd must be losing it."
Then, just four days later, he did it again. Another weird post with just a music video. How strange. "The guy is clearly going over the edge and into the abyss."
Was Turd trying to warn us of some impending event? It sure seemed like it but...then...nothing happened. In fact, summer ended in September and though the metals had rallied significantly, no sane person would categorize the move as "hot" or "explosive" and certainly not "historic".
Wow. Looking back over that post, Turd almost seems delusional. Over-confident. And, as it has since played out, DEAD WRONG. I mean, even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while. Ole Turd's about as useful as a dead squirrel. Wait a minute...Maybe he's the nut?! That's it!! Bat-shit delusional, that Turd. Quixotically tilting at windmills and with a serious megalomaniacal complex to boot!
After a little down time, The Wicked Witch showed up again. This time, she had her new boyfriend, Thunderlips, in tow. If you thought she was unbearable back in the summer, she was over-the-top now.
More time passed and Turd seemed to grow despondent. Despite the overt QE of $85B/month, prices continued to be managed lower. Having some time to reflect over the holidays led Turd to post this:
But the winter only got colder and it seemed to drag on forever. Finally, a few weeks ago, The Turd began to regain some optimism. No more delays. No more waiting. "Take the fight to them", Turd said. "The War is about to get hotter", Turd claimed. A week ago, a post was written that concluded with this paragraph:
"Finally, you're probably wondering about the title of this thread. Does it have any deeper meaning? Why, yes it does as a matter of fact. I announced in the comments of the Saturday thread that I had a new theme song. It's off of the new CD from the great Bruno Mars. The title is "Natalie" but when I hear it, instead of the three syllables of Nat-a-lie, I think "Blythe Mas-ters". Now, of course I realize that our old nemesis, The Wicked Witch, has moved on to greener pastures within The Morgue. Regardless, she's the one who put her face on CNBS a year ago and proudly proclaimed that JPM is "simply helping their clients" and that their positions are "fully hedged". Oh, really? Hmmm. Well, as President O'Bottom likes to say, the project is "shovel-ready". I hope to break ground by late next week. (And please, this is all metaphorical and figurative. I'm not threatening anyone with physical harm. Just like how Bruno isn't out there hunting down some ex-girlfriend named Natalie. It's just a song...and a darn good one, at that!)"
Which brings us to today/tonight. At 9:00 p.m. EDT, the Canadian Broadcasting Company will air a program called "The Secret World of Gold". You've probably heard about it by now. You should make every effort to watch it. http://www.cbc.ca/player/ Canadian Turdites can watch it directly through their televisions or computers. The rest of us can try to access it directly by using any number of IP masking software such as that available here: http://www.hidemyass.com/
Here's a little more background, published this morning by The Montreal Gazette. Yes, those who think that Andrew Maguire is simply the make-believe friend of high-level gold bugs are going to be disappointed.
But that's not what all the hubbub is about. What is it about? Well, I guess we'll just have to watch and see.
You're likely asking yourself these questions:
- Has Turd already seen this documentary and is he sure that it contains everything he hopes it contains? Answer: No, I haven't seen it. I am hoping against hope that it really does contain everything that I'm expecting it to contain. I guess we'll know for sure in a few hours.
- Is this information that will immediately move the markets? Answer: Probably not so don't get your hopes up.
- Could this film be the impetus of a "hot, explosive and historic" summer of 2013? Answer: I'd like to think so but, given the depth of corruption at all levels, don't make my mistake of getting your hopes up too high.
- I don't live in Canada so how will I ever see it? Answer: Here I appeal to you, my dear reader. Surely, a reader of this from Canada will have the technical wherewithal to record the program and immediately post it to YouTube. A little help?? (And stop calling me Shirley.)
So there you have it. For what it's worth, you should at least be glad that there are folks out there who are tired of the lies, the manipulation and the deception and the negative economic impact that all this is having upon millions, to the benefit of a few. We are trying to fight back. Let's just hope that this evening's program gives us some momentum.
