Turd With Greg Hunter of USA Watchdog

Mon, Aug 18, 2014 - 9:40am

Back on Friday, I had the honor of joining Greg Hunter for an interview on his YouTube channel.

In this interview, Greg and I discuss:

  • The End of The Great Keynesian Experiment
  • The ongoing crisis in Ukraine
  • The CFTC and JPMorgan
  • Price suppression in 2014 and where gold goes from here

Greg does a great job and posts new interviews nearly every day of the week. You can find his work at https://usawatchdog.com and his YouTube channel can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG-G8LLr38fQUNZU8K0t-EA


p.s. I've already apologized to Greg for my over-caffeinated performance. If my jumping around drives you crazy, I urge you to turn away from the screen and just listen to the audio.

Crude gap down

The gap down in Crude was due to quotes moving to next contract. Crude's fallen off a cliff but the $2 move over the weekend was just a roll to the new month with slippage.

Look here all you Turdites

Look here all you Turdites,

how clear does he have to make it?

God knows Our fearless leader needs a new, “Stage Name”.

Turd Furgeson just ain’t gonna cut it going forward.

OK, we get that. The world at large just doesn’t share our sense of humor.

And god knows Craig Hemke - as a moniker - is just too big a burden to bear.

The poor kid has suffered enough with that one.

I know he’s too proud to beg, but clearly all suggestions are welcomed.

Madonna and JayZee are obviously taken, and Carson already bastardized Karnac.

BUT, I know all you brilliant Turds are sitting on some great suggestions.

Maybe someone could set-up a contest.

Let’s all git to work on this for our Godfather’s (TF) sake

Time is of the essence, agreed?

Every last dime @Magpie

So where is the MSM with reports like this? Such an obvious unsustainable and dangerous trend. Thanks Magpie

Aug 18, 2014 - 1:10pm

I like the way Greg Hunter has hyphenized you...

... as Craig Hemke-Gold.

Watched the interview last night on YT. I am a USA Watchdog subscriber. Craig on Greg. You come across as extremely well-informed & knowledgeable about many subjects - and relaxed. I predict you will attract new subscribers. Other than PCR and JW you are the only other USA Watchdog interviewee who can speak intelligibly about the geopolitics of the Ukrainian conflict.

I like Greg Hunter - he's non-confrontational and seems very sincere. But like clockwork, he always manages to insert those two leading questions (regardless of whatever's being discussed at the moment):

"So when's it going to happen? When's the collapse going to happen?" and

"So what's it going to look like to the man on the street? (or Joe-the-plumber, or Joe-six-pack)"

Great job.

my take on what you said re: PMs is:

nothing happens price-wise until the lack of phyzz forces their hand.

Yahoo. Turd meets the Watchdog

What fun. Great interview. Hey, whatever happened to those reports of gold flowing out- you know, the ones with pallets and pallets as far as one could scroll. Don't see those anymore. It all gone? I second the motion for a Marchas45 and the Turd.

Going forward.

Craig, excellent interview, watched while I ate lunch. Made my day.

As abguy4 said, 'Turd' is fine as a funny tag when you are small time, but you are 'moving on up', and you should be Craig Hemke. If I say to someone, "read this guy, he really knows what he is talking about" and they say what is his name and I say 'Turd Furguson', well they would think 'ok loser' and quite rightly in the minds of the ignorant.

Well done. Great interview Craig Hemke.

Have to do it.

A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet.

Aug 18, 2014 - 5:51pm

System media says: "there will be a new WRC" <--why?

Because that narrative allows for the perpetuation of the "system".

Silver and Gold returning to their Monetary Role means 'The End' of the system.

(it's not "what we hear" but "why we hear it" that is the most important consideration)

Excellent interview my friend! Keep up the great work!

Jay Taylor has it pretty well nailed . . .

"I think the battle in Ukraine is very much about this question. Putin rightfully fears NATO is seeking to take away Russian sovereignty. And the Chinese wonder why they shouldn't be able to build a navy to protect their own sea lanes. But NATO doesn't want that because it wants to have control over trade and ultimately to head up a one-world government with China and Russia being subservient to those among NATO who lust for the pinnacle of global power. That means what the ruling elite want is one global central bank with themselves in charge. As the war cycles increase I think it's all about this question of who gets to print the world's money from which those with that privilege can continue to grab ever more money and power for themselves."

"Who does Obama serve – his constituency or the political warlords in DC?"

Jay Taylor: "The military-industrial complex and all the corporate elites, including the bankers that are directly involved with it, are who Obama serves. In addition, I think major economic sectors like Big Pharma as well as major media are part of who he serves and, of course, ultimately a handful of wealthy families that control those corporate entities. But as a good Machiavellian practitioner, it is imperative that Obama does a good job of lying. At least to his hard-core supporters, he has been successful with his lies. He says all the right things to keep his core support in place. But if they examined what he is doing rather than what he is saying they would realize he is a friend of the warlords and not of the people."

Daily Bell: "What about the rest of Congress? Are they capable of changing things? Can the US return itself to a constitutional republic? Is it too late?"

Jay Taylor: "With 99% of Congress bought and paid for by corporate interests and with the country financially on a path toward destruction, I think it is too late for a positive change before the fecal matter hits the rotary oscillator."

Great job, Turd ! Very well done.

As for your screen name (Turd), if you want to change it to “Dukie-Ball” or “Dump”Furgeson, you certainly can but many of your fans won’t know who you are. Let’s face it, Defecation Furgeson and Poop-unit Furgeson just ain’t gonna cut it.

A *Great* deal at eBay - silver or gold

I got an email msg from eBay asking me to "come back and buy something".

eBay gave me 10% off of ANYthing, up to $100 off.

So - I decided to test it by putting a bid in for 50 ozs of 5 oz silver bars, for $1050, free shipping.
I 'won' the bid, then placed my redemption code in the proper spot on check-out.

It worked...the total bill, including free shipping, was $950 = $19/oz delivered. wow.

50 ozs for $950 delivered...hasn't been that cheap in a few years.

Anyway, if you're an eBay member, login and check your msgs...you might have a $100 gift waiting for you, and we all know how cheap silver is at present.
We might as well collectively remove a few hundred 50 oz stacks from circulation for safekeeping, no?
: )

Good luck

Dodd-Frank: Title II - Orderly Liquidation Authority


Title II, the Orderly Liquidation provision of the Dodd-Frank Act, provides a process to quickly and efficiently liquidate a large, complex financial company that is close to failing. Title II provides an alternative to bankruptcy, in which the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is appointed as a receiver to carry out the liquidation and wind-up of the company. The FDIC is given certain powers as receiver, and a three to five year time frame in which to finish the liquidation process. Title II is aimed at protecting the financial stability of the American economy, forcing shareholders and creditors to bear the losses of the failed financial company, removing management that was responsible for the financial condition of the company, and ensuring that payout to claimants is at least as much as the claimants would have received under a bankruptcy liquidation.

Harvey's Up! (TFMR)

Harvey's Up! https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/comment/622151#comment-622151

  • Dave Kranzler: The outright and blatant in-your-face manipulation on the Comex is the epitome of “absurd” It is humorous because of its juvenile predictability. At the same time, it is profoundly tragic because it is emblematic of a Government and financial system run by a few people who have decided to govern and lead by their own rules. December gold has been running between 1300 and 1350 from 16-18 August. Then when Comex opened this morning, it dropped $45 in ten minutes. See anything fishy there?
  • Harvey: Right from the get-go gold and silver were hit Sunday night. However as the evening wore on, gold advanced only to be hit on several occasions as the bankers saw silver advance much to their chagrin. Thus at the end of the day despite gold being down, silver rose by 11 cents on the day. We had good news on the GLD front as demand even for paper gold seems to taking its toll on the bankers in London England. The SLV inventory remained constant. At 1:30 we got news that the silver OI advanced again to almost 166,000 contracts against a low silver price of $20.60. As many of you know, my thesis is that the longs are really sovereign China holding these contracts through proxies and they are waiting patiently to pounce when the time is right. It is quite conceivable that China lent their hoard of stored silver knowing the crooked banksters will hit both metals, and thus providing a clear corridor for the Chinese to move western gold eastward.
  • Mark O'Byrne (GoldCore): The U.S. widened its air campaign against Sunni separatists in Iraq, sending bombers for the first time in support of a Kurdish ground offensive to retake the Mosul Dam and promising to keep up strikes until the strategic post is out of the hands of Islamic State fighters. Kurdish peshmerga fighters and Iraqi counter-terrorism forces have pushed Islamic State militants out of Mosul dam, state television reported on today. The television station quoted Lieutenant-General Qasim Atta, a military spokesman, as saying the forces were backed by a joint air patrol. He did not give details. An independent verification was not immediately possible.
  • Koos Jansen: After having seen unprecedented amounts of physical gold moving across the globe in the aftermath of the goldprice collapse in April 2013, trade has been less robust in the past few months. In 2013 the UK net exported 1424 metric tonnes, Switzerland gross imported 3061 tonnes and gross exported 2777 tonnes, Hong Kong gross imported 2239 tonnes and gross exported 1642 tonnes, and China net imported 1540 tonnes. Gold trade in the first half of 2014 is down form these extreme levels, mainly in the second quarter. My focus in this post will be the physical flows from west to east. Recently there have been reports in the gold blogosphere that Chinese demand is not down from its levels in 2013 and that net import continues to be strong. This is in conflict with Chinese wholesale demand, measured by SGE withdrawals, that has come down to lower levels since March, leaving the long term uptrend intact.
  • Chris Powell: Fund manager Ronald-Peter Stoferle identifies the trouble caused by the suppression of interest rates such as the permanent transfer of wealth from later receivers of free money to earlier ones, and the negative effect on the quality of production. Fund manager Bill Fleckenstein expects the equity markets to collapse as the Federal Reserve tries to stop its bond buying, causing the Fed to crank it up again. Market analyst Art Cashin worries about a squeeze in bonds and bond derivatives. And fund manager Stephen Leeb says the United States is desperate to stop an alliance of Germany, Russia, and China.
  • Chris Powell (GATA): Hong Kong fund manager William Kaye, apparently replying to recent comments by fund manager and geopolitical analyst James G. Rickards today said that he doesn't believe that the U.S. government still has custody of the gold it has leased into the market. Rather, Kaye says, the gold has been shipped largely to Asia. Harvey: In contrast to Jim Rickards, Bill Kaye says that all the gold leased by the USA has left for Chinese shores (and I concur with that view).
  • Dave Kranzler on James G. Rickards comments that the gold is still there: William Kaye said, "All this says to me that people who are perceived as being credible keep circulating these absolutely preposterous myths. But if people want to believe the fairly tale that the United States still has all its gold safely vaulted in places like New York and Fort Knox, they are telling you that this is how all this synthetic gold has in fact been created." and "The U.S. government is essentially communicating to people through its agents that we still have all that gold in our vaults and to prove it, here is the serial number. So, if necessary, just show up with this piece of paper and we will deliver the gold." I have said all along that Rickards is a front for the Government and is trying to sell the idea of using the IMF SDR to the world as a reserve currency replacement for the dollar. In other words, the elitist insiders high up in Government know that the dollar’s days are numbered.
  • Feiwen Rong and Glenys Sim (Bloomberg News): The Shanghai Gold Exchange plans to start bullion trading in the city’s free-trade zone on Sept. 26, according to three people with knowledge of the matter. The people asked not to be identified because they aren’t authorized to speak to the media. Gu Wenshuo, a spokesman for the exchange, confirmed that the trading system is being tested, without giving further details. Shanghai wants to become a regional bullion-trading hub, giving foreigners access to the world’s largest physical-gold market, Xu Luode, the exchange’s chairman, told a conference in Singapore in June. The gold contract will be priced and settled in yuan and the infrastructure is in place for trading to start in the third quarter, Xu said in June. The zone will have a vault capable of holding 1,500 metric tons of gold, which can either be imported into China or be in transit to other markets, Xu said.
  • Bill Holter (Miles Franklin): Why does it seem the U.S. is hell bent on war? There are several reasons all of which turn back to the U.S. dollar itself and the power involved in issuing the reserve currency. First, it is my opinion that Washington knows the game is about over. The economy has not and cannot be kick started because there is too much debt weighing it down. I also believe we are at the end of the road where it comes to keeping a lid on gold and silver, I believe the metal to deliver has just about run out. I also believe the realization that there is very little good collateral left to be lent or borrowed against has sunk in. Even outright lies about economic numbers are no longer supporting confidence which is waning. Friday's news has already been completely forgotten. What you should not forget personally is the fact that you were given "news" on Friday which was completely false. What will you believe "next time"? There will be a next time, you can count on it. There unfortunately will be "next time's" until one gets the desired end which results in the war called for by the script.
  • Tyler Durden: In its excitement to blow something up, it may have well destroyed some of its own military vehicles. DPR First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Purgin told Interfax on Friday evening. Purgin claimed that, on the contrary, the militias destroyed about 100 Ukrainian armored vehicles. "A lot of Ukrainian armored vehicles were destroyed today, 7 at one place, 12 at another. And the same all over the DPR territory. A total of about 100 of them," Purgin said. The implication is clear: while 100 or so Ukraine armored vehicles may or may not have been destroyed, one wonders if indeed the Ukraine army was responsible in "aiding" the separatists with what would appear to be a friendly-fire incident? Without confirmation of a destroyed convoy, the whole story falls apart as merely yet another unprecedented warmongering fabrication, one involving not only the Kiev regime, but NATO and the UK press as well!
  • Zero Hedge: The latest escalation in tensions has taken its toll on Ukraine’s teetering economy. Its currency, the hryvnia, is plumbing new depths this week. Languishing at all-time lows against the dollar, the currency has lost almost 40% of its value against the dollar so far this year. As the Ukrainian economy goes from bad to worse, the collapse of its currency is a major headache for its economic officials, particularly central bank governor Valeria Gontareva. The currency slide is fueling inflation and making foreign debt burdens heavier, which means that Ukraine might need to ask for more money from the IMF.
  • Tyler Durden: As we detailed previously, Bulgaria had been an enthusiastic supporter of the Russian-backed South Stream gas pipeline project, whose construction has stoked tensions between the West and Moscow as it enabled gas supply to bypass troubled Ukraine (thus squeezing the desparate economy back into Russia's hands). In early June, Bulgaria's Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski ordered an initial halt (after Europe offered the nation's suddenly collapsing banking system a lifeline). This time, Energy Minister Vasil Shtonov has ordered Bulgaria’s Energy Holding to halt any actions in regards of the project as it does not meet the requirements of the European Commission. Of course, we assume this decision (to halt a 2nd time) is entirely independent of NATO's deployment of 12 F-15s and 180 troops to Bulgaria's Graf Ignatievo Air Base.
  • Zero Hedge: Who says media disinformation only takes place in Ukraine: apparently the same takes placed between India and China. Bloomberg cites an Indian army spokesman S.D. Goswami who denies Chinese entered territory in Ladakh, a mountainous area in northern India. "No incursion or encroachment of Indian territory by China has taken place along the India-China border,” Goswami says in statement. "There are areas along the border where India and China have differing perception” of line of actual control. “Due to both sides undertaking patrolling up to their respective Line of Actual control. Almost as if someone in the media world is eager to launch a war.
  • Zero Hedge: While the Ebola outbreak in west Africa has long since left the "under control" stage, things are about to go from worse to inconceivable for the poverty stricken African nations, after Liberian officials said they Ebola could soon spread through the capital's largest slum after residents raided a quarantine center for suspected patients and took items including blood-stained sheets and mattresses. Meanwhile, in Spain a man, who has not been named but is said to be in his 30s, was admitted into San Joan hospital in Alicante on Saturday evening where he was being treated in an isolation unit. Hospital sources confirmed he was suffering a fever of 38.3 degrees Celsius (100.9F) as well as "other symptoms associated with Ebola - including physical discomfort, vomiting and bleeding". The patient told doctors that he had arrived in Spain from Nigeria "a few days ago". But even that is nothing compared to what may transpire if what the Times of India reported moments ago, turns out to be accurate: three persons from Ebola-affected Nigeria, who arrived here Saturday morning, have been admitted to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital for screening and treatment if required. DS: Did you notice both of these patients have returned not from Liberia or Guinea or Sierra Leone, but from Nigeria?
  • Tyler Durden: As we warned last week, the pace of cases reported is exploding. From around the 1st of April until the 10th of August the daily rate of reported Ebola cases has gone from 3 per day to 57 per day.
  • Zero Hedge: The lack of World War 3 this weekend was the perfect catalyst for buying stocks back up towards record highs... because Putin must have folded, right? Oil prices slipped, with WTI briefly back under $96, which lifted Trannies 1.75% on the day (best performer) but the Nasdaq's break of cycle highs (to March 2000 highs) is the big news for bubble-watchers (though it's different this time remember). VIX broke back below 13 to almost a 4-week low close. Treasuries were weak all day especially after Europe closed with the long-end underperforming (30Y +6.5bps) - 3rd worst day of year for 30Y - with yields rising back to Russian convoy "destroyed" headline levels. Gold dropped back under $1300 as silver rallied 0.5%. S&P futures volumes were 40% below average as AAPL flash-crashes but has almost round-tripped to 2012 highs.
