Thursday Conversation - Chris Martenson

Managing risk in a post-virus world.

74

In late January, our friend Chris Martenson stopped by to warn us all of the pending dangers of some new coronavirus that had just recently shown person-to-person transmission. And aren't we lucky he did! With containment efforts now in full force, Chris returns today to begin discussing the way out.

First of all, if you never had a chance to listen to the podcast from Saturday, January 25, you should do so now. Unfortunately, the warnings Chris gave us that day turned out to be quite prescient. https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/podcast/9904/special-podcast-discussing-c...

But now it's April 9 and soon the conversation will turn from mediation to "getting things back to normal". In order to get ahead of this, the question of just how soon a return might happen needs to be considered now. Thus this podcast. Over the course of the call, Chris and I discuss:

  • At this stage of the crisis, what are steps you should be taking in preparation for the months ahead?
  • The extreme importance of thorough and trustworthy data regarding fatality rate, infection rate, therapeutic treatments and the most likely co-morbidities.
  • The holes in my argument regarding the risks of returning to everyday life. Namely, the total pool of people living with possible co-morbidities is much larger than I had considered.
  • The possible therapeutic benefit of a couple gin-and-tonics!

I think you'll find this discussion to be quite helpful in orienting your mind around "where do we go from here?". Over the course of the holiday weekend, please carve out some time to give it a thorough listen.

Made men, whether mafia, big banks, hedge funds, deep staters

top pols trading insider data, MIC, multi nationalists, mega billionaires (Gates) all get bailed out or warned to get out the market before it crashes. The middle class and passive IRA investors do not get bailed out. They are never warned. Millions of business owners and now 16,000,000 unemployed were given no warnings yet the heavy handed state and local governments told them to close up NOW or suffer huge fines and imprisonment

If the Made Men were made to pay then there businesses and trading platforms should be gated and frozen so they cannot cash out ahead of the crushing closures that are no less than a nuclear weapon detonated above a large city

The people behind this will be totally outted and will be held to account whether by rule of law or rule of iron clubs knives, guns and burning crosses upon which they will be affixed. Bill Gates can run but he and ilk cannot hide They started this war. We will finish it

The body count will need to be in the 7 figures before the human vermin and ghoulish scourge is burned out and extirpated from the human gene pool.
