I'm just generally tired, so I'm taking the day off. Here's an "open" thread.

If you haven't seen it yet, below is the CBC documentary, graciously supplied by "forwhomthetollbuilds". Very kind of him to take the time to record and upload. All three parts are below. Part III is the only one of real interest.

Obviously, the producers chose to exclude the information which I was hoping would finally begin to see the light of day. Thus the title of this post. I'll try to pick up my armor and rejoin the fight next week but, for now, I can't help but feel a bit dispirited.

Have a good day and try to remember to play nice, keeping in mind, of course, The Golden Rule.

From Santa

Dear CIGAs,

There are two legitimate people that called $1900 as a high and in fact acted on it. Those people are CIGA Bo Plony, and Charles Nanner. They both deserve our congratulations and recognition.

Bo has offered you his opinion in chart form and it is published here. I know that Bo puts his money where his opinions are. I am informed that Mr. Nanner has identified April as the period of the low.

Friend CIGA Bo P has had some important calls on the market over the past few years. For this reason I am sending this to you for your consideration over the weekend.


Dear Mr. Sinclair,

As you are aware, I sold my silver at $49 and gold at $1900. Since January 2013, I have provided you my Gold Updates. Today I provide you what I expect to see from Gold these next few weeks. Please see the below Gold chart with specific dates and approximate price targets that might/should be reached on those specific dates.

Please note the blue chart arrows are date sensitive, not price sensitive. As the dates are hit these waves will end and changes direction regardless of price.

The next two dates to watch for are as follows:

(I) May 2-3, 2013 – INTERMEDIATE TOP (SMA’s)
(II) May 10-11, 2013 – BULLBACK BOTTOM


As always, in the coming days I will provide you additional updates as the Gold chart progresses. After this weekend we will likely never see $1300 gold EVER again!

Have a great day!
CIGA, Bo Polny

@Hammer Sorry man but had to laugh

3. The global economy has avoided some major tail risks and financial market conditions continue to improve. However, global growth has continued to be too weak and unemployment remains too high in many countries. The recovery remains uneven (NOT HAPPENING) and is progressing at different speeds (SLOW TO NONE) with emerging markets experiencing relatively strong growth (MAINTAINING STATUS QUO), the United States demonstrating a gradual strengthening of private demand (OF WHAT? BULLETS?), and the recovery in the euro area as a whole yet to materialize(RECESSION). Policy uncertainty, private deleveraging ( DEBT), fiscal drag (DEBT TAXES), impaired credit intermediation (DEBT), and a still incomplete rebalancing of global demand (RECESSION) continue to weigh on global growth prospects. Medium-term challenges are also present in many economies, including those related to fiscal sustainability (DEBT) and financial stability (OVER LEVERAGED BANKS).


Pretty dark humour on my part, but still had a chuckle from it.

billhilly NAU is here already

Trade and financial systems have been in place for a long time now. Calderon set the final bits of legislation in place after he was elected.

From what I have gathered over the years is the regionalization of the countries. New countries formed in the 3 regions, Western pacific through 3 states (wide) then central states and provinces will form 2nd country and the eastern states will be the 3rd country. Reason for this is horizontal borders (East/West) bring too many differing points of view and interests. By seating Pacific provinces and states together their interest are generally the same as well as their economies. Same with central states and provinces, growing regions (farmland) oil gas etc, they could care less about fishing industries and forestry. Financial epicentres are in the Eastern parts of North America as well as factories and research facilities. The new borders will likely be North/South and functionally this system makes a lot of sense from a central planning point of view.

RFA (Regional Financing Arrangements) means bail in scheme ?.

A helping of simple food for thought....

So where are we headed? Me thinks...

- Coordinated financial meltdown (more concentrated wealth)

- More centralized power/resource control (govt)

- More smoke and mirrors (distraction)

- More FEAR, more UNemployment, more hunger etc...

- Create confusion, create violence, create desperation

- .Gov to the rescue

- Bigger gov = More jobs, especially DHS

- Reestablish control of masses (2 Billion rounds should do)

- Hire the hungry, poor to become DHS puppets

- Rationing of food, fuel, health services, etc...(cut costs)

- Undesirables and rebels to "camp" for training

- New pact (through agreement or force) with Mexico/Canada

- One big happy N. American Union

- New currency

- No borders

What am I missing?

I would not be surprised at all to see a N.A.Union. Wasted resources trying to defend such massive borders(easy to defend Guatemala border and who would ever think of invading through N. Canada). Union brings under control ALL the natural resources of the 3 countries (oil, mines, food, drugs, labor etc...).

Oh yeah, Cuba too (strategic). We could probably also work out a deal with UK for Bermuda....they'll have plenty of their own troubles.

Enough for now. Enjoy the meal. Who is offering desert?

@Billhilly - I like simple too

and I can only speculate that they are not quite ready otherwise they would.

I wonder that something has come adrift and that all the moving parts to the plan are not as well coordinated as they should be. Someone letting the team down?

Perhaps the more overt powergrab parts of the takeover (military/false flags) are experiencing some, shall we say, serious opposition? And it won't hurt that the marvellous interweb has many eyes looking closely at each detail and providing non stop 24/7 international coverage and analysis.

Careful sifting and fact checking required, but sheer numbers of interested minds might be causing a problem to the PTB.

Katie Rose said her bank computers were also down...

We are all suffering from information overload. Starting with the North Korea paper tiger threats two weeks ago, morphing into a massive gold & silver takedown that also engulfed last weekend and gave many here several sleepless nights, and then turning into explosions in New England and Texas, plenty of people are stressed to the max just from following it all. I haven't seen so many yellow posts in a single thread in some time. This constant influx of bad news creates an outflow in the form of stress and sadly, I don't think a reprieve is in the cards. So please take some time this weekend to turn off the computer, and even more importantly the "talking wall" as Bradbury put it. But for those of you with Netflix and would like a family film with some significance, I will recommend an obscure TV movie in honor of April 19.

April Morning (1988) starring Tommy Lee Jones
