Fireworks with The Jackass


It's another three-day, U.S. market holiday weekend so you know what that means...a visit from our friend, The Golden Jackass himself, Jim Willie.

Much has changed since we last spoke with Jim a month ago...but much has stayed the same, too. If you want a reminder of where we left off in late May, here's the link: https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/podcast/10164/thursday-conversation-jim-w...

For today, I mainly just a dropped a quarter into Jim's back, pulled the string and left him go to town. You'll find that my voice fills only about two of the sixty minutes...and that's fine. You hear enough from me on a daily basis, anyway.

A few of the key subjects upon which The Jackass opined:

  • Covid, vaccines and his new report dedicated to health issues
  • The need for continuing, relentless and infinite QE
  • How The Fed is calling in select, dollar-based debt
  • The threats to and from the CCP
  • And a whole lot in between

Remember, you can find all of Jim's work at his website: www.golden-jackass.com

Have a great weekend!

In the money option

It's an option to buy the underlying shares. So you would need to have to required cash in your account to buy 100 shares of the underlying stock at time of expiration for each option you own. Therefore, you should sell the options before expiration if you do not have the available cash when they expire.

Cheap asthma drug cures covid-19. No need for vaccine as any mutations would be cured as well.

Equity call options in the money, with the exception of indexes like S&P 500 and VIX which are cash settled, are settled by purchasing the underlying equity from the balance in your account (or using your margin).

I don't know about silver calls on the COMEX.

Real Money and Debt Jubilee

Yeah, right away. Debt slavery and fiat money just don't disappear because some people think there's too much debt in the system. There is no market event that's going to free the people from this mess, that's pipe dream city.

A new system comes from the people having enough of the old system. It doesn't come from the very wealthy trading against each other in the financial markets. So no, there's not going to be any government that decides to free up the debt from the system to benefit the working class, not gonna happen.

Come on, Wall Street just looted TRILLIONS of dollars in the last few months as average citizens are going to get booted from their homes, small businesses and apartments. And the reaction for the largest theft in US history? NOTHING!!!

There's no reset coming, debt slavery is here to stay unless the people decide enough is enough. The problem is that there's too many people that embrace their debt slavery and think it's just a normal part of existence. Our population isn't ready for anything other than taking a pounding from The Elite in one form or another.

I can hear it now once the fiscal austerity hits the fan after the 2020 election, many citizens will cheerlead their own downfall to support their ideology. They will continue to scratch their heads as the velocity of money continues to crash as The Elite bail themselves out with even more trillions. We can all wish for things to change, but the reality is more of the same.

(No subject)

Im way behind on reading posts and listening to podcasts. But thought this important enough to fight my phone etc to post it.

Was in Austin earlier today. Wanted to go to a good TexMex restaurant we discovered. It was always busy prior to KungFlu84. Found this on the door today. My guess is many more notices like this are going to be posted all across the US.

Damn shame this situation is. Damn shame...

Truth from JW, "No one knows where all this will lead. We need a Jubilee from phony bankster fabricated ‘debt’. We need real money as outlined by the US Constitution."

By all means you should exercise the option prior to its expiration!
