Time For A Break

Tue, Jun 25, 2013 - 10:58am

You know how they say that dogs can sense an impending earthquake? Don't you kind of feel that way these days? I know I do.

First, it seems that everything is down. Stocks. Bonds. Commodities. Every currency. If there's a market for it, it's being sold. The only thing that is consistently rising this past week is The Pig. And once those dollars are bought, where are they going? Apparently nowhere. Very strange. Almost ominous.

Then you've got very knowledgeable folks like Bill Holter at MilesFranklin blaring the alarm with columns like this: https://blog.milesfranklin.com/the-great-unwind-has-finally-arrived and this: https://blog.milesfranklin.com/the-button-has-been-pushed-ready-or-not

We've got Santa, who is clearly very, very nervous. He's practically begging you to meet him somewhere for a discussion: https://www.jsmineset.com/2013/06/24/chicago-vancouver-and-scottsdale-qa-session-tickets-still-available/ And he keeps posting messages urging you to Get Out of The System (GOTS) as quickly as possible. Just yesterday, he linked two articles which you really do need to take some time to consider:

https://www.leap2020.eu/GEAB-N-76-is-available-Alert-for-the-second-half-of-2013-Global-systemic-crisis-II-second-devastating-explosion-social_a14266.html &


There are items such as this, which I found at ZeroHedge: https://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/mid-year-digest/

And Chris Martenson, who I know to be a very wise and sober fellow, got into the act, too: https://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/82210/everything-being-sold

So here we are. Look, I don't know if the financial world is ending this week or next or even this year, but I do know that the current system is unsustainable. To that end, your only financial protection is the physical possession of gold and silver. Not paper derivatives. Not ETFs. Not a basket of mining stocks. Physical metal, in your own two hands.

For those of you upset about the current, eight-month decline of fiat-conversion value, I'm sorry. If having gold and silver consistently move higher in terms of dollars would make you feel more comfortable, I regret that that hasn't happened for you. If you are sitting upon unrealized losses which makes you feel uncomfortable, I apologize and I wish I could make it different for you. But I can't.

However, you need to remember that we live in extraordinary times. Those spouting disinformation about the future price of gold are either hopelessly misinformed or deliberately trying to mislead you. The global forces at work behind the scenes have been in control and remain in control of the paper metal market. The past eight months have been a coordinated effort to crush price, thereby freeing physical for immediate delivery and allowing The Bullion Banks to cover paper short positions, transferring the future risk and liability to the Specs. This has now been accomplished and I firmly believe that we are very near a price bottom.

One day, very soon, paper price will reverse and head higher. Then, one day in the future, paper price will no longer exist as price resets multiples higher with the emergence of a new global financial paradigm. Please understand: THIS IS NOT AN OPPORTUNITY FOR "PROFIT". This is simply an opportunity to protect and defend all that you have accumulated to this point in your life.

To that end and to personally prepare, I'm going to be taking a few days off. Over the next two weeks, I'll still post from time to time but I'll also be sharing some "guest posts" from a handful of your favorite site regulars. Then, come next month, I plan to make a few changes to the way we do things around here. Nothing earth-shattering but necessary changes, nonetheless.

In the meantime, stay alert. Now is not the time to be complacent. Trust your instincts and use your brain. Double-check that you have acquired enough physical metal and consider buying even more. The End of The Great Keynesian is upon us. Please continue to prepare accordingly.

another way to protect yourself

You might think about establishing a home where you can grow your own food, where there is a source of water that doesn't necessarily require electricity to obtain, in the country where you know your neighbors and can count on their help if you need it. You could have some food supplies put up, and the ability to hunt and fish, too. Self-sufficiency, in other words. nice to generate a little electricity, if you wish to keep a refrigerator going or use a deep well, this does of course get complicated, but it is doable at present.

In other words, it is a good idea to actually have the real goods needed for survival. Just having a pile of gold and silver may not do the trick when the shit completely hits the fan. I realize that in a police state, they can take away anything they choose at any time, but possibly the government will have its hands full with urban unrest, so getting out of the cities and into the country seems like a reasonable plan to me.

In the event of a pandemic, it might also be a good idea to have a place where you can shut the gate for a long time. If you do that, you had better have all the supplies you need to subsist. Good luck . . .

QE Won’t End—It Will Increase

The markets are panicking about the possible end of QE. Everything but the dollar is down—and down hard—which is no surprise, considering how addicted to Quantitative Easing the markets have become.

I just called my bank (Wells Fargo) and they have assigned a fraud claim to the charge. It will take up to 60 days to resolve. Also, they are sending me a new credit card. If ECM is doing this shit now they may try it again in the future.

Dear  Mr. Tyberious :

Dear Mr. Tyberious :

Thank you for writing me about the National Security Agency (NSA) and its electronic surveillance programs. I appreciate you contacting me about this very important issue.

I am disturbed by the NSA's mass collection of phone records from Verizon Business Network Services and its PRISM program. I firmly believe in a right to privacy and in the protections afforded by the Fourth Amendment.

As you know, these surveillance programs were carried out under the USA PATRIOT Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Over the past decade, I have voted against the USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005, the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, the FISA Sunsets Extension Act of 2011, the PATRIOT Sunsets Extension Act of 2011, the FISA Amendments Act Reauthorization of 2012, and other pieces of legislation that expanded the surveillance powers of the Executive branch.

Rest assured, I will work with my colleagues in the Senate to address these breaches of privacy and will continue to scrutinize efforts to expand the USA PATRIOT Act and the Administration's use of surveillance powers. While I am committed to providing our intelligence professionals the legitimate tools they need to make America more secure, I believe we must remain vigilant to ensure that neither legislation nor an Administration's actions strip Americans of our fundamental liberties.

The views of Washingtonians are very important to my work. I will keep your concerns in mind and I encourage you to stay in touch about the NSA and other issues. If you would like to know more about my work in the Senate, please feel free to sign up for my weekly updates at https://www.murray.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/pattysupdates . Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

Huh!? New Canadian market

And proponents will never mention a bail-in either....

I'm with Turd,,,,that ominous "something" a la Chicken Licken is sitting up there just waiting to road kill us all. (See any black SUVs parked near the house yet?)

Getting out of stocks last fall has never looked more like pure genius....

And for those of you who still trust CME data - or CFTC data too - please be informed that with a 30% crash in paper silver prices the backwardation has ended.. Sure it has - with lower prices we can always expect an increase in supply. Sure,,,makes sense,,,yup.

Lots of silver out there - but deflation is the word play here.

And Armstrong is not prescient; he just knows how much CONtrol the crooks have over the paper markets....

Again, we need to see lower prices in paper gold and silver; we need to see these phony markets finished.. We need downside and we need it sooner, not later!

baby goat/ farm update

Seems like a perfect time to do a baby goat/ farm update.

I tried an experiment this year as my only goat to birth gave me five babies. I wondered what would happen if I did not follow the guidelines of the breeders, and rather tried to imitate their Mothers. So I increased their milk intake by a pint a day. And guess what???


Nobody can believe that these babies were all born two months ago to one Mother. They are fat, happy, and so darn cute it makes me laugh/smile/cry all at the same time.

I’ve decided the breeders are like the FDA. They provide the minimum amount of food to get their babies to grow, while maximizing $$$$ profits. Sort of like the human RDA vitamin scale.

Today I start weaning them. It will not be fun. But these darlings are much bigger than other babies I have weaned in the past, and I am tired of bottle feeding five babies at a time. My body is covered with little, tiny bruises from them jumping all over me.

This is what I have learned:

If you want healthy goats, feed them.

If you want lots of good rich milk, feed the Mothers well.

Don’t think you can put a dairy goat out to pasture and she will give you gallons and gallons of milk. She won’t. She needs protein. She needs minerals. She needs love.

And I have just started another experiment. I have a Mother goat who gave birth 15 months ago. I am still milking her once a day. Her milk volume began to drop and I freaked. I need her milk for cheese, etc. So I have begun another experiment. I am giving her grain two times a day rather than only when I milk her. AND…. her milk volume has shot up again. What an amazing thing, to be milking a goat that gave birth in March 2012!

What I am learning is that it is all about food – and my girls get no GMO corn at all.

We are watching the end of our way of life here in the USA. There are warning signs flashing everywhere.

Prepare Accordingly! Buy silver. Buy some goats. Then treat them well. When times get tough you will be so glad you have them.

And, now might be a very good time to buy next year’s vegetable seeds. That’s what we are doing now. They will keep fabulously in the freezer. We are growing some 10 year old Heritage Cannellini Pole Bean seeds that are no longer available in the greenhouse. They were kept in the freezer. They are eight feet tall and flowering.

Freezing your seeds keeps them viable for years.

With all the talk about a coming crash, we just thought getting our seeds now for 2014 and 2015 was the prudent thing to do.

I cannot believe the teeth gnashing from some people

Ok, first I cannot believe we're having the hyper-inflation discussion again.... It is a social phenomenon. People lose "faith" in their "money" and "government" and hence dishorde themselves of "bad" (read PAPER) money. Do people, all around the world, have ample faith in their governments? I would easily content that faith in the powers that be in government is running on the fumes....

In a hyper-inflation "stuff" is DEFLATING, wait let me say it again... DE-FLAT-ING against other real goods (e.g. gold). Stuff is NOT GETTING MORE EXPENSIVE, IT GETS CHEAPER! It only gets MORE EXPENSIVE IN CRAPPY PAPER TICKETS. All this talk about deflation and inflation.....
Yes velocity is nowhere, we ALL UNDERSTAND THAT, the thing that is NOT being shown in this debate is that QE is deflating the private/shadow banking sector via breaking hypothocation and re-hypothocation chains. Inflation is an expansion of BOTH CURRENCY (Base money) and CREDIT. In a world that is deleveraging credit is being destroyed. This is causing "deflation". Bernanke is hyper-deflating the system by removing US-Bonds that can be used as collateral to lone against. Similarly he is expanding the monetary base to assist countering the deflationary aspect of the deleveraging. For the love of god, please enough of this stuff about deflation and inflation. The bankers WANT INFLATION, whether they get-it or not is another question. Inflation will ease the debt burden, but the whole world is literally drowning in debt, so the begger-thy-neightbour tricks may not work because private debt is so very very high. The powers that be will enact all kinds of crazy shit (as if there has not being enough already) to sort this mess out. As Jim Sinclair and others have been saying, get out of the system!!!!!!!!! Whether gold is @ $300USD, $1900USD, or $1280USD makes NO DIFFERENCE. As long as you have assets outside the system then maybe you'll be ok..... Even Kyle Bass said that basically they're going to make it up as they go along... Hello have you not being watching???? That is exactly what is happening!
So currently there is no inflation because of the deleveraging that is occuring, who knows what the powers that be will do to get inflation, but they will do stuff, and it WONT WORK, and it could, for all intents and purposes just aggravate the issue and collapse the system faster.
On the price thing, if you bought a Govt-Bond you have lost huge amounts in like a month or two, yet people complain about a move of 37% over 1 and a half years? What the hell is wrong with you people????? I could not agree with Sinclair more (he said it a few months back), if you cannot stomach this small move, best get out now, for your own sake and sanity, and then wake up in a few years and go "I could have preserved much of my wealth, but I was a <****>".

No need to be concerned.

I bought goats that were bred to be two year milkers.

I breed them every other year and milk them through the winter and into the following fall. I dry them out before breeding them again.

My problem this year is that the buckling I borrowed did not get the job done. In a few months I will have five goats ready to breed.

It is all a huge learning curve. I've had goats for five years now, and learn something new every day.

Oh My!

The babies are screaming for their food.....

Jun 25, 2013 - 1:27pm

RE: Goats

Katie, thanks. I read that in olden times, people lived with their livestock indoors in the winter. You could breed a girl early and have her deliver in the winter. Then you would not have all the goat babies at one time. Assuming these girls are not sterile from GMO.


Jun 25, 2013 - 1:36pm

@justaregular guy

one debate for example is whether the DOW and gold would meet at 3000, 10,000 or 20,000-or 500 when the ratio returns to 1:1

if say 300, gold would lose 84% top to 300--while dow would lose 98%-so where is the better "value"

My concerns about precious metals are 1) if they actually fix the system (I think unlikely but....have to consider it ) and 2) if they fart around with manipulation to the point where I kick the bucket, in which case my kids know where the physical is. which they are going to get anyway.

Jun 25, 2013 - 1:39pm

@Just a regular guy

You make a good point worth repeating and emphasizing:

The Fed buying all the 10 year Trys contracts the shadow banking system that uses Treasuries as repo collateral. This explains why we have not seen massive inflation since QE began. The shadow banking credit/ money supply is contracting as the money base is expanding. I have no idea if the Fed is doing this intentionally or if its merely a biproduct of Operation Twist but it IS happening. This will have huge implications when/ if the Fed stops purchases or begins tapering which may explain the current activity in all markets. If that happens we will finally see more obvious inflation (not just the uncounted in CPI food and energy costs),

Actually, I cut him

On May 6, after he failed to compensate me for March or April revenue. This means he stole about $1000 from me.

Even worse, Ron and Steph rode to the rescue and fixed the site when it was hopelessly broken late last year and he stiffed them, too, to the tune of $2400. I've since worked out a deal with Ron to repay him but it certainly gives you further insight into GL's character.

dudestacker: ignorant inanities

"Do your homework before you post such utterly ignorant inanities. I watched the first few minutes of the vid....you say proves depopulation conspiracy. I found myself wondering what are the credentials of this grandma and why should I listen to her? .... This stupid fucking shit is killing this site for me and many others. JY896 tried to reasonably refute this in the last thread and Eric and XTY made well reasoned posts not particular to this. We need more of that and NONE of this."

Here here!

quoting silverbullet, from the last thread: "Stuff like this is why none of us have any credibility left at all with our families and why everyone else thinks we are bat shit crazy."

Here here!

Quoting myself from the last thread (only because it was tacked on late and probably no one will read it otherwise): "Yes,of course stuff like that is why people lose credibility.... Maybe it would be good for others to step forward with a bit more of a critical stance when stuff like this gets posted? I love TFMR as much as anybody, but the paranoia-carnival/godlikeproducts.com aspects of it (mr fix at the top of the hat tip list) are a drawback."

How about it, folks? Are we going to be GLP airheads, or...?

Actually, truth be told, I like godlikeproductions. But for entertainment purposes, for gosh sakes, not for a wise, well-considered worldview. Truth be told, I even like mr fix's wild and crazy paranoid posts, but again for entertainment value -- same reason as I like that kind of stuff on GLP, occasionally, just for fun. But most people don't have my strange and eclectic taste and sense of humor. Most people go to GLP and see a bunch of whacked-out loonies, and dismiss the place as a mere nuthouse (failing to see that there is another level on which loony-ness can be appreciated). I assume that we don't want TFMR to be perceived as such.

It's just so annoying, like people post good stuff here but it gets buried in stuff like "gold is down 10 bucks oh mah god..."
There's just so much chaff and moaning and groaning.... I don't know what the Fed is going to do with all that base money. I guess we'll find out one way or another. The tapering stuff is noise, they cannot stop. Stopping = game over. They'll have to "taper" so gently (like over the course of say 10 years), or crash the system to taper a lot more (e.g. 50% taper).


Yea, it's whatever.. either way gold, relative to other things (at the moment) is still cheap!

To the moaners and groaners:

Go look @ where stocks/bonds/commodities are now (2013) and look at where they WERE (and how they were TRENDING) in 2008 pre-Lehman. Look @ what the USD Index did before Lehman. Did we have a credit-crunch pre-Lehman??? Why do you think people, like Sinclair and Turd, are telling you to get out of dodge???

For velocity calculations , NOMINAL GDP is used. You used REAL GDP chart. That might be the reason for some of discrepancies You did notice-there should be some.

In velocity calculation, inflation is included in GDP number. That might be Your other dimension.

Here is one chart, BUT:

But it seems they produce this curve only forward looking, so there is no chart available on FRED which would be the one used in velocity calculations.

I am trying to get my account straightened out--they billed me for May on the 28th. So I have that and concern it will bill on June 28 again even though when I sign in there it states recurring billing canceled.

I am leaving for Vietnam next week and will spend a few months touring Southeast Asia. I think I am done living in America for awhile, the criminality and the fraud, the societal ills, the rampant willful ignorance. I know, Vietnam or Cambodia, Laos, they are not perfect by any means. But there is only so much a guy can take. I told my mother that there is a rape in progress and I am being raped. Yes, my $$ net worth is down by half, and yes, I understand why we own metals, and yes, I have been in the PM space since 1997. But I need to get out of here or I am going to do something stupid.

Anyway. You guys be cool.

Jun 25, 2013 - 2:20pm

@ Tyberious

This would be my reply to Ms. Murray:

I am having trouble with this line in your response:

“While I am committed to providing our intelligence professionals the legitimate tools they need to make America more secure, I believe we must remain vigilant to ensure that neither legislation nor an Administration's actions strip Americans of our fundamental liberties.”

You see, to me, there is a very big difference between providing legitimate tools and willfully watching the law be broken while doing nothing. If you were remaining vigilant, you would already be calling for the immediate arrest of anyone involved in the PRISM program or any other direct violation of my fourth amendment rights.

My rights don’t come from the government; therefore, any action that would strip me of my fourth amendment rights is a violation of the law. The problem I have is that the law has already been broken, and not one person in Congress has done anything to arrest and prosecute a clear and present violation of the law.

What I want to know is what you are doing to exercise justice against those whom have already violated my rights. If you do not believe my rights have been violated, then you are unfit to serve.

4th Amendment:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

I would also like you to review your Congressional Oath of Office:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

The illegal surveillance has already occurred and is ongoing. The law has been broken. How do you reconcile the 4th amendment and your oath of office with the reply that you sent to me?

Why is Dudestacker's post killing this site? Because you don't agree with it? I don't agree with the post but that does not mean I have to go running around to everybody I know and regurgitate the post as if that information is my own or spread it around. That's YOUR problem if your family and friends thinks you are wacko. Just read the information and keep it to yourself if you think its not reasonable. I am glad to read, or skip over that stuff, if I feel it's not worthy. Exercise a little personal discretion.

edit: I like this site because it exposes me to information that I might not find on my own. Is that not one of the original reasons Turd put this together?

Great! In addition,

1)currency forms a relatively negligible and stable part of money supply, the big and changing part is bank credit created by banks;

2) FED has no instruments to directly influence credit creation and money supply ( obvious) in a way FED would be able to tune it. Its banks who make decisions ( also their customers and borrowing banks). And now they do not want to end, and others do not want to borrow at available conditions, and QE removal of collateral does not help AT ALL.

This will not change much if FED ends QE , tapers or- imagine that- starts to sell treasuries to increase rates! Increased rates wont stimulate credit at all. reducing the rates FED pays on reserves from 0,25% to 0 won't change much the situation either. BUT if FED starts to require=charge money from banks - say 3% for excess reserves FED itself has created on their balance sheets by buying treasuries etc. - we may see some movement from reserves to market. But that will obviously ruin bank P&L as they will be forced either to dump money into FED or engage in reckless crediting at low rates leading to bad debt pile.

That is why FED is in the corner, and knows it. To survive, FED needs war to ramp up spending by government and get some economic effect.

Otherwise, USG must take over money supply control from banks.
