A New Year's Message From Turd

Mon, Jan 2, 2012 - 3:12pm

Lots to say yet so little time. How about another brief video, instead?

I had hoped to post this all in one video but youtube was driving me crazy. So here you go, in two parts.

The Turd Speaks 1/2/12 (pt. 1)
The Turd Speaks 1/2/12 (Pt. 2)

Now, as you've probably figured out, I'm pretty worked up about this NDAA. If you're interested in learning more about the threat to your constitutional liberties, please take time to watch this video series of The Judge. This is well worth your time. (Thanks to Ron for providing.)

Quick note..problem with sustainable paper suppression..

What if the silver producers see all the demand coming directly to them ala Sprott? Why would they even bothering selling to the comex anymore? Wouldn't the comex than quickly run out of physical due to the arbitrage as the producers could go long comex paper, take delivery and sell directly to this new demand

Avino Silver...

is up over 21% on low volume of just over 16,500 with no news release!...Usually the sheep start to pile in when this occurs...& then they are fleeced...when it is sold off at the end of the day...back to the last day of trading share price close!...The sheep always buy high...& always sell low!...This ploy by TPPT (M-A-N-I-P-U-L-T-I-O-N) is getting very old...& I see it everyday!!!...

Need about another 10 to 30 pip move on the EURO

Need about another 10 pip move up to 1.308 to get those cockroaches OUT of their shorts trying to hold 1600. If it goes to 1.31, gold will make a beeline to 1620. silver 30

The Possibility of $1,000 Silver before Hyperinflation

2011 was both an amazing and disappointing year for silver investors. The most disappointed of all are those who bought in during the April highs, when silver almost reached $50. However, what these investors need to remember is that not too long ago, people were fretting over changes in prices of ten cents or less. Not too far down the road, the difference between $29 silver and $50 silver will also seem rather minimal.


Good Read

Jan 3, 2012 - 2:22pm

can anyone explain me

Why is gold moving together with the euro ?

Should bad euro news not be just as good for gold as bad US news ? and vice versa ?

Why move with the euro and opposed to the USD ?

Agree with turd, the fulcrum is 30. I suggested that at some point (in my dreams) TPTB/JPM might have a lesser vested interest in the short side of silver. That for a variety of reasons it was getting counterproductive.

It is also true that the silver shorts were gifted with a perfect storm for them in late December , really, it could not have been more perfect for them, MFing Global erasing the buy side, the Seasonals, Year end bonuses tied to the yearend mark to market price of Silver, tax loss selling, God knows what else.

Nevertheless they came anyway, so they are still vested apparently short. Mind you, on a published basis (FWIW) that commercial short position (as published) is much smaller , there are clearly no small specs to stampede, so Silver was pretty wrung out at 26 /27. Sitting on the Chinese shock absorber.

I do not see the wisdom of gifting the worlds silver to China to back the world's new reserve currency in the twenties , that 27 2012 dollars, is cheep cheep cheep.This suppression policy is dumb dumb dumb.

Or things are more desperate than we know. Or, you don't suppose TPTB really don't have a Continental clue as to what they are doing. One wishes.

But, the hedgies and the friends of precious metals are now in a New Year, 12 month clean slate, this is when wild surmise comes into play, Silver is just as vulnerable to a well heeled BUYERS RAID as we saw when we kissed 50 last year. So, lets see how or if we handle a 3 handle:)

gold usually is inversely connected to the dollar--as the value of dollar goes up, it buys LESS gold.

dollar is valued vs other currencies euro being MAIN one....so inversely there too.

therefore gold is DIRECTLY coupled to euro.


also it is currently traded as a 'risk asset' [instead of a safe haven]......u can tell that because it is directly connected[currently] to the SnP [or equities....a 'risk' asset].....dow up, gold up, dollar down, euro up[euro being also the primary CAUSE of risk to the world financial system right now]

when the shit hits the fan [it did temporarily in august as US debt ceiling debacle unfolded---hard to USE TREASURIES AND DOLLARS AS A SAFE HAVEN when we lost AAA status and debt ceiling non-resolved by congress!!!] gold trades as a safe haven.

when we get into the endgame run n the final big econ reset is upon us.....gold will stand along w/silver as the only safe havens as the dollar too will be toast.

@Shill Garlic is the go!

Take it from a dodgy Aussie (more like freedom loving International citizen), apart from Vit C, try excruciating amounts of garlic to kick the ass out of respiratory infections. A favourite way of mine is a garlic pasta with olive oil and parsely. Use an entire head, not a nancy boys couple of cloves. The olive oil helps you get it down your throat. 1 serving and an hour later you can feel the effects. If you catch it with the first tickle in your throat, 1 hit usually cures before the onset of further symptons. Otherwise 2 to 3 will knock an infection that is set in. You can't beat garlic, even if you stink out the house and people you know

Reggie Middleton did a good job on CNBC just now.

Of course, if I was him, I would look like a turd. In any case, I think we should make him an honorary TURD.

Main statement, BAC is bankrupt. Other banks holding Euro debt are the same as MF Global.

Silver to $1000 before hyperinflation?

Sorry Adrock, but I can't accept Silverseek's prediction. The current system is predicated on suppressing the prices of gold and silver. The system would collapse before we reach those price levels. In fact, the system is so brittle it will collapse before gold and silver appreciate to any great extent at all. Hence, the line in the sand that has just been drawn after 10 years of appreciation.

Needing help

Hey guys. I am wanting to invest in some mining stocks, 2-3. I am a small timer and would actually be selling a small, small, percentage of my stack. I think the profits will be amazing in the miners. Especially the junior miners. I have heard this time and time again " Rick Rule - How to Make 50 to 100 Times Your Money in 2012" (https://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2012/1/3_Ri...) and I don't want to miss it. We've already seen some real winners (Arian went from $6 to $60).

I was wondering if anyone had a list of a few, tickers, with a relatively low price per share. Mainly stocks under $10. Please only list companies that are ACTUALLY mining and are listed on the bigger exchanges.

Considerables thus far:

what a pathetic and obvious little corporate whore dana bash is. I am surprised Paul didn't just ask her to take her ear piece out so that he could have an actual conversation with her.

The insatiably deceitful arrogance of these shills is beyond imagination. Its really quite simple. If they don't do their master's bidding they don't work. These are disgusting shills who make journalism their toilet 24/7.

Your family is always welcome at our campfire. However, as we sit around the flames, we will need some new-old time training. That is when we get grandma out of the cabin. Grab that chicken and chop off the head. Boil the water in that old tub and soak the chicken until we can pull off the feathers. Light an old piece of newspaper and burn off the small feathers. Grab the knife and clean out the inside. Roast the bird over the flames. " Thank you Lord that we have something to eat again today, Amen". I think I just heard some young person say " I guess the days of shopping at Albertsons and Safeway are over".

One of the best ways of being prepared in the natural is to downsize NOW. jmo

Check out Eric's gold miner thread


and BOG' penny miners


There are many other threads in the forums as well. Good luck, call me in two weeks after you read through most of them. All kidding aside, the other problem with the miners as most here would tell you is owning two or three is usually impossible. I would consider a minimum of ten in order to have a spread of risk.

@ beardeus

Hondo and Murphy beat me to it. Follow their advice and check the forums.

I've owned SVM and still do. Sold my GPL about a month ago. That one's not on my list to ever buy again but do your own DD.

No experience with ASM.

Good luck and I hope you have a strong stomach and a relatively low IQ. I've about decided that those two attributes are what best qualified me to invest in miners.
