Golden Jackass Time


It's a three-day market holiday weekend so you know what that means....a visit from The Golden Jackass, himself...Jim Willie. The last time we spoke was New Year's Eve and that seems like freaking years ago so, as you might expect, this is an update that you're going to want to hear.

Oh my gosh. It's always interesting to talk to Jim and he sure didn't disappoint today. This discussion is loosely based upon the three primary points below. However and in true Jackass style, you're going to get a lot in between.

  • We've discussed QE∞ for years and now here we are.
  • Have we arrived at "The Big Reset"? Will there now be a debt jubilee?
  • What has Jim heard about the current events in London and New York. Is the bullion bank pricing scheme beginning to fail? Will gold be re-monetized in the next iteration of a global monetary system?

Thanks for carving out some time to give this a listen. I hope you have a safe, relaxing and peaceful holiday weekend.

Jeffrey Christian

We don't see him interviewed very often. How come he's being trotted out now to spout the party line? They're in trouble. Never visited the old Soviet Union, but have to believe he would have been an excellent tour guide, lying with ease.

Listening to Jeff Christian justify his fees from bullion banks implying the Comex problem is temporary and there's plenty gold in London, the true position, i.e. his clients have a serious problem is shown in this chart of their short positions.

Thank you, Boggs

for reminding us what an amazing day Good Friday is -- Christ on the cross, the greatest man who ever lived, dying for each of us and defeating death for all time.

Angry - St. Corona is not the patroness of epidemics

She's the patroness of treasure hunters. She was martyred along with St. Victor by the Romans in 170, being tied to two separate bent palm trees and torn in two when they were released - what a horrifying way to go. The first time she was invoked for help with an epidemic was for this very Corona Virus (probably because of her name) by the US Diocese of Raleigh just last month, March. Yes, her feast day is May 14.

Intermediaries Buying Silver

Maybe a dumb question, but why can't dealers with a shortage just offer $16 an ounce for silver rather than waiting on an intermediary to supply them?

Covid in Wyoming

We have had 253 confirmed cases out of 5255 tests that the results have come back. 129 of those 253 confirmed cases have already recovered and no one has died even though a bunch of seniors in a nursing home in Lander got infected.

Let's get back to work now, shall we?

Wow, Kennedy Days

Jim was 12 and I was 10 years old when Jack Kennedy was shot. I lived and grew up in Hyannisport. So it is still a very strong memory at such a young age. I played on the Kennedy compound tons of times. The president summered on Squaw Island. It had only one road out to it so Secret Service had a better control over who could visit the island. I spent 1962 and 1963 summer on that island. Got to talk him a couple of times! Kid stuff, but he use to always bum cigarettes from Secret Service guys. I thought he's the President! Why does he need to do that? Over all they were one messed up family.

Oh GO Silver!!!!! metal talk. LOL

Mild bronchitis ? I think not....

Here is some math for Jim the expert in math. If we are testing just 20% of cases infected and the actual numbers are 5x higher than we think. In other words, in the US we don't have 0.5 million infections but 2.5 million, that is still way under 1% of the population infected. At this time there are about 20,000 deaths in the US. How does that compare to the annual flu deaths of 35,000. Add to that, the flu deaths occur over months not 2 weeks. By the way we have just got started. Let's see what happens when the infection rate is 10-20% and there are 250,000 -500,000 deaths. How will that compare with flu or mild bronchitis. And we are still not done as we need a 70-80% infection rate to get population immunity. I don't think trivializing this disease is a solution. Clearly the disease is not evenly distributed across the country and that is why some hospitals are empty, for now. By the way if there is a vaccine I am first in line. I have heard first hand of several deaths in London and this is no pleasant passing.
