Silver Manipulation In Detail

Tue, Dec 13, 2016 - 10:12am

Nick Laird and his service, GoldCharts 'R' Us, has long been an ally in the battle against Bank precious metals manipulation. In light if the recent revelations from Deutschebank, Nick has compiled some of the data into charts that you simply MUST take the time to review.

Nick's tremendous service can be found at his website: He has a subscription component that helps him to pay the bills but he also churns out free information and charts on a regular basis. It is his latest public post that caught our attention when we found it linked to the GATA website earlier today.

I'm not going to reprint the entire thing here for two reasons. One, I haven't asked Nick for permission and, two, I'd rather you visit his site directly to see the charts. He's running a business, too, and if this sort of information is your bag, then you should be sure to consider a subscription while you're there.

The direct link to this tremendous dose of information is here:

Be sure to take time to review the very first chart on the page. Note the timeline of the manipulation and transcripts attached to all of the text and email messages between the conspirators.

For the sake of the discussion here, I am going to borrow just one of Nick's charts and it's posted below. In TFMR parlance, we have long described the almost-daily, early morning precious metals selloff as the work of "The London Monkeys". It's a cute name for a sinister group of Bullion Bank traders that work to lower the price of both precious metals into their daily London fixes. Well now, thanks to Nick, we have quantitative proof of this daily manipulation. (click to enlarge)


Again, please be sure to review all of the charts the Nick has provided. Though the denials persist and the stench of The Cartel Apologists is thick, Truth is finally beginning to see the light of day. We've maintained for years that any structure built upon a foundation of lies, fraud and deceit cannot last. With more revelations, lawsuits and investigations to come, you can be certain that Truth is going to prevail. All of us in this community on the right side of history and we will be the victors in this battle against the destructive and criminal Banks.

Cheating at argumentation


Steve W brought up the Russian propaganda debate in the last thread... it got me to thinking...

There is not a traditional fallacy that describes this situation... like ad hominem, or red herring.

Logical argumentation begins with something we all accept as true, then extend logically from that position. When you have a starting point that is debatable, as in this case, then you may NOT proceed to any logical conclusions. We must establish whether or not the "fact" of tampering is true.

Evidence must be provided to establish the factuality of our starting point, to convince all that "a thing" is indeed true.

Arguments occur at 4 different levels, moving up as the argument progresses (basic argumentation theory--CA Lawyer studied this stuff)

1. Fact: We start at the level of fact. Does a thing exist, is a thing true? Does manipulation exist" Did Russia tamper? (and let's not even mention chemtrails).

2. Value: Once we establish a fact, we judge it--good or bad, right or wrong? Is manipulation justified to save economies? Is election tampering wrong?

3. Policy: Having established that a thing is "wrong," we deliberate about a course of action. what are we going to do about it? Lets simply create fake charts. Let go to war with Russia. This is where hypocrisy sneaks in--It is wrong for Russia to hack & tamper, but not for the Saudis to donate millions to a candidate (which is against the law). Both are tampering, but one side buries the fact.

4. Jurisdiction: If we can reach no consensus on policy, we seek out a judge we all trust to decide what policy shall be adopted. The CFTC decides to leave the Comex system intact. But who decides whether or not we go to war? The Supreme Court? Congress? Executive order? United Nations? We are all damned when these institutions are stacked with insiders beholden to their financiers.

At some point in most legal situations, the attorney for one side sees the writing on the wall and throws in the towel, persuading their client to settle or take a plea bargain. The progressives will not do that. Most live arguments are stuck at the fact or value levels. Once we agree at those levels, policy becomes easy to determine and we quickly pass laws.

Those pursuing a private, selfish agenda always distort the arguments at the fact level. Our values are fairly well established already. Once we know the facts, logic dictates the rest.

But these progressives have been dogged in pursuing their agenda, truth be damned. Their leaders are corrupted, privately seeking what benefits them personally (neo-con wars and, fat military contracts, corrupt legal system so they can party like nobility). But they publicly promote vague concepts like equality, fairness, acceptance. Hell, their professors cannot even agree on what "race" means or what "racism" is in Cultural Studies departments, but they are quick to label me a racist if I criticize the banking system and mention the fact that 7 year boom/bust cycles in real estate aligns with a Jewish custom to settle debt every seven years and start over. Their followers are brainwashed with vague notions of idealism and a few activist projects to keep them occupied. Meanwhile their leaders cheat to gain power, rig the system to enrich themselves and...

Crap. I just need to stop ranting and finish my coffee.

You cannot make an assumption at the level of FACT. The evidence must be examined before we can move to the upper levels of public argument.


I disagree. I think I see some gold in those chunks of Argentite. If the gold value is worth more than the silver, we have to call it gold.

Hat Contest

I don't know why I wasted time doing this, but here are everyone's guesses from the thread. There are a couple duplicate entries (highlighted), and the number to the far left represents the position within the thread that the participants guess was posted. So, lower number indicates "dibs", if you will...

Anyway, I did this as quick as I could so I may have typed something incorrectly (name or guess)... here ya go...

Good luck to everyone and may the luckiest person win!

Good sign methinks

Thanks @terp and @mavens - 1/3 entries are 'bearish' (below the level at which point the contest started) - just going on impression i got from past contests that is about as bearish as this place gets for sentiment translating into guesses - fingers crossed a good sign!
