Another Timely Discussion

Mon, May 5, 2014 - 11:26am

My friend, Dan, sent me this video yesterday. It's a timely discussion of several items we regularly cover here at TFMR so I thought I should post it.

Once again, this is Dan Ameduri speaking with Marin Katusa of Casey Research. In this latest video, they discuss:

  • Current contrarian investment ideas
  • Some of the equities they've discussed in previous presentations
  • Default risk and other issues with China
  • Potential safe haven and "bug out" locations

I think you'll find this interesting so please give it a listen.

TF - MalAir370

At risk of someone accusing me of being in a cult, er . . .

I mean of someone accusing me of fomenting yet another crackpot conspiracy theory, I strongly believe that something is amiss with the official story behind the supposed disappearance of that flight.

Garrow's explanation, while fantastic, is certainly logically just as likely as the other theories, no matter how far fetched or believable they may seem.

For example, I remember when Benghazi first happened. The official story was, in my most humble opinion, the biggest load of horseshit I have ever seen on television in my life. The fact that the dumb bimbo was paraded out to tell some lame story proved to me that exactly what she was saying was a total lie. So, because the real story was different than what the talking head was espousing, I went internet surfing.

I stumbled across some websites that said the Benghazi fiasco was a black ops mission gone awry, which if linked to the White House would jeopardize Obummer's reelection. THAT RIGHT THERE seemed a much more plausible explanation than that complete load of horseshit being sold to us by those crooks in the oval office.

So, here we are, years later, and what do we see?

Politicians salivating over exposing Obummer and his minions to embarassment for sure, perhaps worse.

As we now know, beyond doubt, the official story was completely untrue.

So, now back to the Flight 370 story. What have we heard?

(1) Pilot deliberately tried to, and did, kill all aboard by crashing.

(2) Plane crashed for some other reason, without a trace.

(3) Plane was physically hijacked by persons aboard the airplane and either crashed in ocean somewhere or ended up on land somewhere.

(4) Plane was electronically hijacked, remotely, and flown to some unknown location for reasons unknown.

(5) Aliens abducted plane.

As to each theory, there is inferential, or circumstantial evidence [except for the alien one]. To identify which is more likely, let's look at the incentives, or CUI BONO and make an educated decision:

(1) No one benefits. All are dead. Not even the pilot benefits from getting credit for killing all aboard, because he did not send radio call. Airline certainly does not benefit. Absent some proof of this, then the supposed benefit evaporates, leaving no incentive for this pilot to do the unthinkable.

(2) Aircrash disaster attorneys benefit, for sure! Free money! Planes do not crash in mid ocean without a trace, res ipsa loquitur. Question is which large insurance carriers pay out to which groups of lawyers. Airline does not benefit, insurers do not benefit, aviation lawyers do benefit, big time. But, those lawyers who stand to benefit, do we really believe they would crash the plane, or cause it to crash to realize the benefit? I do not believe that for one minute.

(3) Same as number 1. No terrorist group has claimed responsibility that I know of. No trace of physical evidence, or radio call, or transponder code, or satellite data, etc., so this theory is without proof, if one presupposes that the hijackers wanted notoriety for their deed. Airline does not benefit. No one else benefits.

(4) Remote hijacking, of course. Whatever was on the plane, whether something physical, or something inside of someone's head, had to be immensely valuable. I have heard theories, including as per Garrow, that some incredible, and valuable technology was either being transported, or the person or persons with knowledge of same was aboard the plane. I have also heard that Rothschild banksters stood to benefit if certain passengers happened to die. So, at least with this theory, there is a viable incentive structure. Adding to this incentive structure would be potential military or black ops groups that stand to benefit from the supposed cloaking technology, so I can for sure see where the price [innocent passenger deaths] is worth the reward [incredibly powerful military technology].

(5) Do I need to say anything on this?

Anyhow, that is my analysis in a nutshell.

Death Panels?

Maybe not. I'm sure plenty of old billionaires would prefer youth farms:

"Two teams of scientists published studies on Sunday showing that blood from young mice reverses aging in old mice, rejuvenating their muscles and brains...“I am extremely excited,” said Rudolph Tanzi, a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, who was not involved in the research. “These findings could be a game changer.”...The research builds on centuries of speculation that the blood of young people contains substances that might rejuvenate older adults...

...delivering the blood of young rats into old ones. To do so, they joined rats in pairs by stitching together the skin on their flanks. After this procedure, called parabiosis, blood vessels grew and joined the rats’ circulatory systems. The blood from the young rat flowed into the old one, and vice versa...

The scientists joined old and young mice for five weeks and then examined them. The muscles of the old mice had healed about as quickly as those of the young mice, the scientists reported in 2005. In addition, the old mice had grown new liver cells at a youthful rate...

The young mice, on the other hand, had effectively grown prematurely old. Their muscles had healed more slowly, and their stem cells had not turned into new cells as quickly as they had before the procedure...The experiment indicated that there were compounds in the blood of the young mice that could awaken old stem cells and rejuvenate aging tissue. Likewise, the blood of the old mice had compounds that dampened the resilience of the young mice.

Dr. Rando and his colleagues wondered what signals the old stem cells would receive if they were bathed in young blood...“We can turn back the clock instead of slowing the clock down,”

BOG, this is begging for some ghoulish artwork . Sheldon Adelson or George Soros buying immortality... If I had your talent I'd add a sufficiently horrifying visual.

Sorry to hijack this thread

I just tried posting a question to Trader Dan on the cult issue and could not post because I didn't have a google account or a word press account or AIM and so on.

For those of you that frequent this site and his I really want to know why he chose to post his message last week. What is the significance in the timing of that message. Why didn't he post it 2.5 years ago or 1 year ago or some time in the future? I think that is important this gets addressed.

I Run Bartertown

Your post reminded me of a couple old TV programs. One was a movie from maybe the 50's? Anyway the people running the college used young women to transfer youth back into them. The other was either The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits episode that had a woman who had clones of herself in all different ages and when something was needed a clone was killed and used to replace a part....

Truth is stranger than fiction....and they do not call it programing for nothing....

May 5, 2014 - 5:59pm

the dukes re: timing of Dan Norcini's missive . . .

I doubt he'd give an answer. My guess is he had to deliver the message requested by that man in the black suit . . .

!I Run Bartertown . . . maybe we can get a visual of . . .

Dr. Frankenstein hooking up a big rat to George Soros, as the "before", and then another visual of the "after."

Edit: I don't think they're billionaires, but a mouse hooking up with Mr. Magoo (Greenspan) or Ben the Bernank would also do . . . oh, wait, it's BLOOD they need to swap.

Finest Rhetoricians (sorry DrJ)

While I was thumbing through the 'grotesqueries of the future file' where that last thing was, I found this. You may know some college kids. You might think they can make a cogent point. But when it comes to shining beacons of dialogue, these are the finest our nation has to offer:

"It used to be that if you went to a college-level debate tournament...It was tame, predictable, and, frankly, boring. No more.

These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content ...On March 24, 2014 at the Cross Examination Debate Association (CEDA) Championships at Indiana University ... the resolution asked whether the U.S. president’s war powers should be restricted. Rather than address the resolution straight on, Ruffin and Johnson, along with other teams of African-Americans, attacked its premise. The more pressing issue, they argued, is how the U.S. government is at war with poor black communities.

This year wasn't the first time this had happened. In the 2013 championship, two men from Emporia State University, Ryan Walsh and Elijah Smith, employed a similar style and became the first African-Americans to win two national debate tournaments. Many of their arguments, based on personal memoir and rap music, completely ignored the stated resolution

They completely ignored the a DEBATE...and WON!

In the final round, Ruffin and Johnson squared off against Rashid Campbell and George Lee from the University of Oklahoma, two highly accomplished African-American debaters with distinctive dreadlocks and dashikis. Over four hours, the two teams engaged in a heated discussion of concepts like “nigga authenticity” and performed hip-hop and spoken-word poetry in the traditional timed format. At one point during Lee’s rebuttal, the clock ran out but he refused to yield the floor. “Fuck the time!” he yelled.

In defense of the judges, this young diplomat only won 2nd place.

Critics of the new approach allege that students don’t necessarily have to develop high-level research skills or marshal evidence from published scholarship. They also might not need to have the intellectual acuity required for arguing both sides of a resolution. These skills—together with a non-confrontational presentation style—are considered crucial for success in fields like law and business.

You think so?

Hardy and others are also disappointed with what they perceive as a lack of civility and decorum at recent competitions

You think so?

Fox LOVES it!

Mr. Garrow's interview and revelations are bad news for mankind. Lets hope that these things do not come to pass. Neither a tin foil hat or bug out bag will shield America if half of this is true. When and if an EMP attack happens, TF Metals will be a memory along with all other forms of electronic communications. My skills as a child in sending smoke signals will be useful.

That's some seriously messed

That's some seriously messed up debating! I wonder if those colleges receive government funds from my tax's? Let them work for JP Morgan when they graduate.
