Very Early Monday

Mon, Dec 24, 2012 - 1:24am

It's going to be a while before I can write up a full new post so, with the current post pushing 40,000 views, I thought I'd better give you a new thread to chew on overnight.

I hope that Uncle Ted doesn't mind. He's the patriarch of our movement and, as you know, I hold him in very high regard. I would strongly encourage you to consider subscribing to his site, especially at this critical moment in our history.

Following along with the previous post here at TFMR, Uncle Ted crafted these two paragraphs in his "Weekly Review" back on Saturday. Concise but with an added level of detail I failed to provide, these two paragraphs provide an essential background to the entire silver manipulation story.

"The danger of a further sharp silver sell-off still exists because JPMorgan’s concentrated short position still exists. Based upon physical market considerations, there is also a danger that JPMorgan could lose control and silver could explode. That’s what’s wrong with a concentrated position and manipulated market in the first place. Through the cut-off date, JPMorgan was still short 34,000 contracts, down 1500 for the reporting week. Remarkably, this is still a third of the entire net short side of COMEX silver (minus spreads) and represents more than 22% of annual world mine production. Here’s another tidbit – the 170 million oz of equivalent silver that JPMorgan is short on the COMEX is more than 20% of the all the visible silver bullion in the world (817 million oz – source

To give you a sense of the dimensions of holding a paper short position of this magnitude in gold, silver’s precious metal sister, please consider that if one entity held 20% of the two billion oz (minimum) of all visible gold bullion in the world short on the COMEX, it would require a short position of 4 million COMEX contracts, nearly ten times the current total open interest. (2 billion oz gold oz X 20% and then converted into 100 oz COMEX contracts). My point here is that the more you compare JPMorgan’s concentrated silver short position to other markets, the more you are amazed at the audacity of their silver manipulation."

I'll have a full, updated post in 12 hours or so. Until then, good luck and btfd.

Having seen ''Thrive'',the Foster Gamble film,I watched this shorter interview to see what he had to say.I discovered he is Proctor/Gamble family,inherited some from grandparents to become filmmaker.But apart from a question mark on this family point,I was quite concerned that he is receiving communication from junior Rockerfellers and Rothschilds(Nat?),as to how they can 'help' him in his quest for free energy and a lot of other good things.

Gamble definitely knows what is going on,so I will watch ,with interest ,how the Rothschild/Rockerfellers are proposing to 'assist' all our futures.?!

Good link rl999. I find Celente somewhat hard to listen to at times, but don't discount his message. I agree with about everything he said in the interview you linked.

Over the years I have become more and more aware of how perverted our education system has become, not a learning process, but a brainwashing system to turn out worker drones. As Carlin said " people just smart enough to do the paperwork and run the machines, the last thing they want is people capable of critical thought".

History is something I am very fond of, and believe that over 90% of us do not study it enough. I have found so many instances of U.S. and world history being corrupted, not often by outright falsehoods, but by the simple omission of relevant facts. I'm not talking about secret classified documents, but information freely available, often from government archives. Who decides what goes in our textbooks? The same people who control our government and our media.

A couple of years ago, I reread Orwells' classics Animal Farm and 1984. Picked up a cheap paperback that had both in one book. Am searching for Huxley's Brave New World, as it's been many years since I first read it, and I'm more than a little hazy on details. I realize these are fiction, but they were so prescient.

Another book I reread a few years ago was The Gulag Archipelago by Solzhenitsyn. One thing that stuck with me is how during the course of their imprisonment, he and others often ran into some of the former secret police who had arrested them, they also having been arrested on some trumped-up charge.

These books, and dozens of others IMO, should be required reading in our schools, yet I know hardly anyone, young or old, who has read any of them.

If we lose our freedom, then all our PMs will be for nothing. We are now living in what is already in many areas, the most powerful and controlling police state in history. If TPTB succeed in total takeover of the U.S., there is nowhere to run.

I hate to be such a downer, on Christmas of all days, but can't help how I feel. IMO, we are far beyond any political solution, and only a total collapse can save us, knowing that such a collapse would cause enormous suffering to millions of basically good and decent people. The thing to beware is another Hitler emerging on the other side.

“We didn't love freedom enough. ”

The cliff

I think if the cliff is breached that metals could get caught up in the perceived maelstrom and subsequent market sell off because of it.

Who know's how long or deep it could go? Sub $1600 and $28 again? Yeah maybe, but probably not for long. Everyone's definition of long is based on their tolerance or level of daily outrage if they let the day to day gyrations get to them.

Eventually the U.S will soon exceed our debt limit and they'll have to raise it no matter what and then the credit ratings takes a hit and the metals respond. The short term is noise and the dreaded spending cuts a.k.a. austerity (bad word) will be circumvented as usual. They'll pander to the electorate just as much as before but they'll whine about their ability to help you while blaming the other party for everything.

clintons surplus

never was except in their minds.

every year the debt increased.

And Clinton has a Y2k spending spree on technology to help him, (which was stopped dead cold in 2000) and lets not forget the dotcom era where companies with no revenues were selling for billions triggering tax revenue--which for the investors resulted in tax losses during the bush adm.

So all the stuff about Clintons surplus is hogwash-not to mention robert rubins taking of the social security trust real assets.
