On With The Jackass

From Jackass lips to your ears.

Tue, Dec 3, 2019 - 3:20pm

As you may have noticed, we did not have our annual Thanksgiving visit from The Golden Jackass. One of the reasons why is this recording today.

Jim has joined his own podcast network and I encourage you to check it out. And it was for this network that Jim and I recorded this conversation earlier today. I've not figured out how to embed the video so I'll just post the link. You can then click it to be taken to the Gadfly site.

Again, this was just recorded earlier today. Over the course of the call, Jim and I discuss REPO, the Banks, the EFPs and Comex, gold and a whole lot more. I think you'll find it quite interesting.

The plan now is for Jim and I to record again later this month and that conversation will be our annual year-in-review segment that will be posted sometime around New Year's Eve. In the meantime, and instead of the Thanksgiving podcast, I hope you enjoy this show.

missed by ten minutes

In this morning's post, we predicted that...as usual...the lows for the day in the "stock market" would likely come at 10:00 am ET (9:00 am CT on the chart below). Missed it by ten minutes.

re: missed by ten minutes

It's fraud...kind of like the wizard behind the curtain in Wizard of Oz.

For those who follow Clif High (and those who don't) . . .

On December 1, Clif tweeted his prognostications for the next six years . . .

Gadfly setup.

Hopefully it matures and we will be able to d/l the interview into an mp3 for offline consumption.

I'll miss that, if this is the way forward from here.

Great interview!

I must say that Jim, as interviewer, did a good job of keeping his ADHD under control and letting Turd answer his questions. I subscribed to Jim’s newsletter for years and thinks he is a very intelligent man, but listening to him be interviewed by others where he would go off on a tangent, just irritated me and exceeded my tolerance and patience. I was totally surprised that he is a much better at interviewing others, than he is being the person interviewed.

And you were very focused and cogent in explaining what has changed with respect to the “pledged metal” category and its connection to the repo market and how they could be related, Turd.

Kudos to you and Jim for a great interview!

you can download an mp3

If you use the Firefox browser, you can install Video DownloadHelper:


After installing, you will have a button to the right of the address bar. Click it and you can choose to download the video as an mp4 file or choose to save in another format like mp3 audio.

I just did it with the Jim Willie interview so I know it works.

Mp3s and such.

Thanks Matt_. I will consider this as an option but FF has been acting strange enough, already, of late.

I am hoping for something more local to the site that doesn't take me out to the web, at large. A "Download here" would be ideal.

Fingers crossed. Thanks for your reply!

Loved the interview.

Great interview!

I was somewhat disappointed this weekend that I didn't have my favorite Financial analytical tag team to listen to.

I know many of you have considered me so far outside of the box, that it is often problematic to support my views without somebody taking the time to do literally years of research, investigation, and even experimentation.

To say that the entire system is based on lies, and fraud is a vast understatement, because it applies to so many different things on so many different levels that it requires a massive inter-disciplinary investigation and then, a massive amount of dot connecting to sort out.

I thought Jim was on to something last year when he started working from the premise that there is far, far more gold available then has ever been publicly acknowledged.

The banking institutions were designed for one reason, and one reason only. It is to be used to steal with impunity the labor of the human species.

Regardless of whether you look at banking institutions, religious institutions, or governmental institutions which are the three legs that maintain human enslavement, there is a reason why absolutely no one from any of these institutions is ever held accountable for the most insidious crimes ever perpetuated against humanity.

To assume that anyone from any of these institutions ever swerves into the truth on occasion will place everything you hold dear in jeopardy.

I was following Jim Willie before there was a TF Metals Report, and I haven't missed an article or interview since.

I like him because he takes the criminality of the system into account when making his predictions.

Back then, he was pretty much the only one doing it.

In exploring the criminality of the system however, I think even Jim Willie underestimates it.

The bankers have been quite used to conjuring up fiat paper since prior to recorded history at literally zero risk to themselves, producing nothing of genuine value whatsoever, creating debt which everyone has been conned into paying, which requires genuine creation of wealth, in an endless transfer to those who seem ideologically opposed to ever producing anything of value.

Yes, the entire banking institution is one great big fraud, along with the other two legs of the human enslavement system, the governments, which are solely involved in the use of force to extract wealth through theft and coercion, and the religious institutions which created a mind trap creating the illusion that authority is legitimate.

I came to this game with many years of exploring alternative physics, which the knowledge of seems to have been suppressed in all of academia for a very long time, and I would encourage you to think in terms of thousands of years.

Nicola Tesla stumbled into what apparently, was widely known to humanity in prehistory.

It might be worthwhile exploring the work of Joseph P Farrell as he seems to be relatively well focused on the history and the physics that I am talking about, because one becomes forced to draw conclusions that are far outside of the mainstream.

We have been taught that "gold cannot be printed”, as its origins are the result of an exploding supernova. Yeah, not likely most people would try to duplicate that.

So in the minds of most analysis, you can’t "create gold”, and that somehow all that exists is all that will ever exist.

I'm calling bullshit on this underlying flawed premise.

Alchemy has always been considered a fairytale by modern man, and yet in ancient times, it was synonymous with hard science, based on an aetheric model which mainstream science seems to be obsessed with avoiding at all cost these days.

There are many reasons for this, because to maintain human enslavement, the true nature of the human being, consciousness, matter, and our universe cannot be revealed to the masses.

I think it's highly plausible that we are working our way into a gold standard, but for one reason, and one reason only.

At the very highest levels of the control matrix, it has been known for thousands of years that gold is not a finite resource, and I am assuming, that it can be produced in quantity relatively cheaply, since even in modern science, particularly quantum physics, matter can be manipulated at the subatomic level.

In other words, alchemy.

The endgame appears to be the complete and total extraction of all wealth from all citizens on planet earth, regardless of religious, party affiliations, or national boundaries,

since such things do not exist in nature, and are simply mental constructs, designed to divide and conquer humanity.

This is simply an expansion of Jim Willie’s prior assertions that since Gold has been mined for thousands upon thousands of years, it is impossible to know the total.

Integrating the work of Joseph P Farrell, it becomes fairly clear that his assertion "there is far more gold in vaults then has ever been mined in human history”, has a lot of validity.

It would be well worth the bankers efforts to create the illusion that it is rare and valuable going forward, particularly when their paper frauds are fully exposed, and humanity moves to a system that is alleged to be “honest".

The problem is, this planet is run by organized crime at every level, and no matter what system is put in place, unless the criminality is thoroughly eradicated, and human beings learn to govern themselves, a gold standard can easily replicate our current levels of fraud and theft.

Many years ago, I used to follow Harvey Organ, thinking that all of those numbers actually had some relevance in the real world.

I have since concluded that they don’t. All those numbers are given to us through an organized crime syndicate which it would be foolish to trust.

It creates a reality that is simply a mental construct designed to deceive.

It is one of very many.

Human beings have been given a worldview that completely obscures what is actually possible. This creates a very narrow perception of what is possible, that the powers that be can exploit by doing things that most people would consider ”impossible”.

For these reasons,

I have little expectation that my stash will one day be something of immense value.

I do however conceive it highly plausible that it will at least maintain some level of wealth going into a new system, just as fraudulent as the old system.

What is of most value, is knowledge, and the ability to create genuine value for other human beings.

To maintain this value, it becomes paramount to acquire the knowledge required to avoid the systemic theft inherent to all of our institutions.

Have a nice day.
