Thursday Conversation - Willem Middelkoop


Here's another "Thursday Conversation" that is recorded and posted on Wednesday. Maybe it's time to rename these weekly podcasts? Either way, if you're interested in what might happen next...aka The Big Reset...be sure to listen to this discussion as Willem literally wrote the book on this subject.

More info on Willem, his fund and a link to a free download of "The Big Reset" can be found here: https://www.cdfund.com/en/

For today, I had planned to focus primarily upon the current state of the global monetary system and what will replace it when it eventually fails. However, the events of this week in the global gold market created the need to address that situation first.

All in all, this is a very helpful podcast from a very informed and wise source. Please give it a thorough listen.

Blood type

All is anecdotal from my own experience when I had the virus in Spain early to mid February. I thought I had a weird minor cold and didn't get suspicious until most of my friends started coughing in the same order that I had interacted with them.

That's when I went to the CDC website and saw my EXACT symptoms listed. IMO, this is super contagious but not much to worry about for most of us.

Certainly no reason to shut down the world. I fear this is all scripted to set the stage for the new fiat digital currency.

Just my opinion.

Blood type

Thanks for the anecdotal information and glad to hear the virus was well tolerated and you are better. Are you sure it was SARS2? Was it confirmed or are you basing that on symptoms? Thanks.

Blood type

I saw that rumour somewhere a few days ago. At the time I was not impressed but consider it is worth a proper study. A proper study needs to characterize a random sample of the population so those mild and/or asymptomatic individuals are included. Beforehand a less robust study would indicate if that would be worthwhile.

Blood group O is unique in having anti-A and anti-B antibodies. AB should be hit at least as hard as A but it is infrequent in the population.

Meanwhile in Canada

We are finding out the Trudeau government sent 16 tons of personal protective equipment to China in February.

Our provincial governments are now scrambling to source scarce personal protective equipment needed by the front line workers fighting the corona virus in their hospitals.

It's brutal to see this level of incompetent government decision making, giving away critical equipment they should have known was going to be required in Canada. This is now putting front line health workers at risk without the necessary protective equipment.

Something changed?

Apologies if someone else has pointed this out, or if discussed already, but anyone else noticed a change in the gold charts in the last day? It might just be a technical nothingburger but.... look at the range on these charts. I wont attach as post, dont want to clog up pages but here 5 minute chart and 1 minute chart

Looks like it happened at around 1:30-2:00pm GMT yesterday (what time zone is standard to use in USA??). Maybe it is just a feed change from tradingview, the platform I use? I have tried on other platforms, and think I can see it on one, but mostly they dont give enough detail. Anyway, pointing out here, just in case it indicates something more fundamental.

Blood type

I am blood type A- and the virus was a minor cold for me.

Agree 1.5g vit C is

Agree 1.5g vit C is ineffective. Studies had positive results from dosing 6-8g/day with flu, and suggested dose dependent, but a low 1.5g is known to do nothing. If I get it, I'll be on 10+g/day and various other things besides.

Paper is fine. The Rich buy Gold, not Silver

The silver buyers have mostly all lost their jobs.

"Silver up 17 cents! This is on the news of the worst unemployment numbers in US history. I say paper price discovery looks more than dead to me."

Rocket Ride

Wow, Silver up 17 cents! This is on the news of the worst unemployment numbers in US history. I say paper price discovery looks more than dead to me.
