Here's a collection of stuff to help get your head screwed on straight for the week ahead.
Let's start with these two ZH links. They were both mentioned prominently in the comments of the previous thread but I want to ensure that as many folks see them as possible and ZH gets so busy during the week that these links are already shuffled down and off of the front page. First, there's this remarkable bit of reporting on the gold vaults located below the JPM corporate headquarters in lower Manhattan...conveniently across the street and at the same level as the alleged gold vaults of the New York Fed. Please read this very carefully and you'll begin to comprehend the depth of the rabbit hole. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-03-02/why-jpmorgans-gold-vault-largest-world-located-next-new-york-fed Then there's this from yesterday. In another bit of excellent research and reporting, ZH uncovers JPM's active role in collapsing Lehman, an event from which they clearly stood to benefit. Look, I know that all is fair sometimes in business, particularly the cutthroat world of investment banking and proprietary trading, but these people are ruthless and diabolical. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-03-03/did-jpms-cio-intentionally-and-maliciously-start-margin-call-avalanche-crushed-lehma
Moving on....I received a link to this video overnight and I highly recommend that you watch it. Apparently, it was just shot last week so many of the topics that Bill and Chris cover are timely.
Our pal Jeff Nielson posted yesterday a terrific new piece on the fallacy of "paper gold". You'll like this: https://www.bullionbullscanada.com/gold-commentary/26069-paper-gold-isnt-real-gold
And, over the weekend, Chris Martenson released this great interview of Alasdair Macleod. Give it a listen. Not only is Alasdair very well-connected and insightful, he's simply a very nice man. As an example, last week a Turdite emailed me a question about Goldmoney's relationship with Via Mat. I sent a massage to Alasdair via skype and he almost immediately called me back. He took a few moments to answer my questions and directed me to the salient points on the matter that were posted to GM's website. He even offered a few nuggets on what he's currently seeing in gold and silver. Again, he's a good guy and I very much appreciate all that he does to advance the cause.
