Two Excellent Videos

Mon, Oct 21, 2013 - 4:59pm

Viewing both of these is time well spent.

I met Dan Ameduri of last year at FreedomFest. He works very hard and runs a great site. This past weekend, he sent over a couple of videos from me to review and I though I would post two of them here for everyone to see.

This first one is an interview of Marin Katusa of Casey Research. This tremendous discussion not only covers some of the usual topics, Dan and Marin spend quite a bit of time discussing something we don't cover much here at TFMR...uranium.

The video is linked below and the full transcript can be found here:

The second video is Dan's interview of Jim Rickards. Again, the transcript can be found here: and the video is embedded below.

Update for last Friday's GLD thread

Magically another 96,450 troy ounces have appeared in JPM's eligible vault today.

Does that number look peculiar to you???? It should!



96,450 troy ounces is almost exactly THREE METRIC TONNES...

2.99993 metric tonnes, to be exact. This is just two ounces short of 2.99999

Recall that Friday's eligible addition was 192, 900 ounces. Exactly four ounces short of six metric tonnes.

Why is it a sham? It has long been suspected that the BB's are using GLD as additional reserves. That they are tapping it is a good sign, in that they have no additional resources to muster. GLD is the cheapest way for them to hold gold, as someone else is picking up the storage fees and other tabs. For this reason it is also a last resort.

It's a finite fund and will be shut down long before it hits zero, as the big money is cashed out.

This seems like positive news to me.

Sorry I wasn't clear

Yes, the GLD is a sham.

In this case, the sham to which I am referring is the Comex "vaulting" system.

  • 192,900 of eligible paper gold (4 ozs short of exactly 6 mts) taken in on Friday
  • 96,450 of eligible paper gold (2 ozs short of exactly 3 mts) taken in today

NO WAY that these totals are real, actual, physical gold. The odds against this happening by chance...the tonnage and ounces being this precise...and, for today, exactly half of Friday, are astronomical.

Turd re: JPM's eligible account . . .

In this case, I agree with Motley Fool. This appears to be GLD shares (paper gold) being used to buttress JPM's supposed eligible gold.

As MF said, the corrupt system treats GLD paper as equal in all respects to phyzz. Sure, its a corrupt system to us regular folk, but to bankers and regulators, its just another day at the office.

Its a sham because:

For what you might consider to be a genius move by the BB's, to have a supply of gold held in an ETF where the investor pays the vault fees and indeed BOUGHT the gold to begin with, many others would see it as another example of the Street giving the general public the shaft. Do you remember how heavily marketed the ETF's were to people? Only to find out that they are paying the fees, are only and will only hold paper gold, and CANNOT EVER redeem any under 100,000 units, if indeed they are allowed to redeem at all. The prospectuses for these ETF's are a mile long and they are set up in advance, with full FORE-knowledge of planned events to come, whereby the little guy gets fleeced and the big guy plunders again, in a rigged game.

So, is good news for people holding gold that the gig will be up soon. But, when Turd and others say its a sham, I am sure this is the type of thing they are referring to. You know...because they have a moral conscience where so many others like Mr. Christian (ironic last name, huh?) do not.

Yes, the odds of that are very low. So the numbers were either poorly chosen or deliberately chosen.

Hmm. If i were to speculate, I would say there were shifting gold from gold. So as not to appear too obvious they wished to stagger their accounting so there were no perfect matchups.

It is not tecnically posssible to use the 400oz GLD bars for COMEX deliveries, but they would have been able to do a loco swap from one to the other. These two final 3 digit numbers tells me the accounting is not yet complete, in the above scenario.

Fwiw, I do think GLD has exactly the tonnage of gold they claim. In the big picture though it's not that much and certainly won't last long if it is their last resort.

I was not discussing the ethics of it. Of course it is morally reprehensible, but one shouldn't let indignation as to what is happening keep one from observing it neutrally.

The public always gets the shaft. This is the way it is. The best you can do is protect yourself and try to warn others.

Edit : 10.51 tonne puke today fwiw

How does the government set the price of gold like 1932?

In the 2nd video, Jim Rickards makes the statement that if all options to create inflation do not work, they can do what has always worked, revalue gold like they did in 1932(I think that was the date he said). In that time period, the dollar was pegged to gold so they could just change the number of fiat/oz. Since the dollar is no longer pegged to gold, they cannot just revalue it. Do they just stop financing the EE and let gold go up for a while?

This would be one way to do it :


Yes, I know. I had the audacity to link another post from that persona non grata. Bash away. Meh.

For those keeping score at home...

The sham GLD was plundered for another 10.51 metric tonnes today. New "inventory" is just 871.72 metric tonnes.

Now down 478.2 metric tonnes YTD or 35.42%. Now down 34.27 mts MTD or nearly 4%.

Btw, 10.51 metric tonnes is 337,904 troy ounces OR about 845 of these:
