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!

Sorry, NOT buying it

Wear a mask if you want but you're fooling yourself if you think it's going to protect you or vice versa. Anybody in the military in the last 30 years will be familiar with below. Level 4 is what you you need for NBC protection. Trust me once you've had it on for an hour even in winter, you'll wish you were dead anyway.

It’s always good to know one is not alone.

I greatly appreciate you sharing the details about your father and his dementia. I too have a parent who is going down the same road. She is at the point where she will repeat a story about two or three times every hour. She is not as far down the road than what I'm hearing in regards to your father. Anyone who cares for someone with dementia is a very special kind of person. It can be an extremely taxing experience in many different ways that most people don't understand unless they've actually done it themselves. It is one of the most selfless acts someone can do. I will be traveling across the country in a month or two to spend some extended time with my mom and help take care of her. Keep up the good fight with your father. You are a good man.

Nein! Venezuela’s ‘Embattled Ruler’ Maduro (Also Known As...

...‘President’) Denied Venezuela’s Gold Held By The BOE

I recall some Brit NWO Globalist sometime ago saying that " Putin and Russia were not going along with the World Order ". Well the reason is because you London Banksters and Wall St. are a bunch of scum. I have no real opinion on Maduro as I don't live in Venezuela. But what part of " my Gold " don't you understand ".

I disagree.

Furthermore, I think hysterical rants like yours about what COULD happen don't do anybody good. If I even thought about all the bad things that can happen in a day doing what I do every day, I'd never get out of bed. I'd lay there in a fetal position with a sheet over my head.

The simple fact of the matter, is that moribidity and significant mortality in those under 60 years old with Covid-19 without significant comorbidities is a statistical aberration. Furthermore, your statement concerning antibodies as the sine qua non for immunity against this illness ignores the significance of T-cells. In fact, it's been found already in North Carolina as many as 40% of the population has some immunity against Covid-19. Beyond that, prior exposure to non-Covid19 coronaviridae in the form of the common cold likely confers some immunity. Many of the supplements I take every day as part of my normal life extension cocktail are being investigated currently as preventatives for Covid-19 (the 10 mg melatonin I take every bedtime, that gram of extended release vitamin C every morning, the large but not excessive doses of Vitamin D to name a few). These are simply things I have done for years if not decades to prolong life.

By all means, be careful and protect yourselves. Social distance. Use face masks when you can't do so. Wash your hands. But irrational hysteria is at best pointless and at worst lethal.

Sandman and Dryam...

BIG thanks for your commentary !!! Like "Local Coin Store" reports, "Local Medical Reports" hold great value. Your details are most appreciated.

Here's my "Local Alzheimer's Report". My father continues a slow, methodical decline in cognitive abilities. On the Alzheimer's scale I use he is currently a 6, but awfully close to a 7 (the worst). He is a happy little boy, laughing at his hat, or a cartoon on the tv. He smiles a lot and is captivated by the smallest thing, such as a dog hair on the floor. If I ask him to go get a pair of socks, he comes back with 2 pairs of shoes. He tried to take the dog to the bathroom yesterday, in our actual bathroom. He loved the fireworks on the tv last night.

He talks to himself, and me, but with no coherency. It is all a word salad. I so often wonder what actually goes on inside his head. In many ways it is difficult to watch the progression of this disease. My dad was a very good attorney, even addressing the US Supreme Court once. Sometimes I am sad, yet I am a realist and understand our finite nature. I guess all-in-all this is not such a bad way to fade. His physical strength is also slowly deteriorating.

I/we are also dealing with my 13 y.o. Yellow lab going through his end days too. He has little control over his hind legs. He has bumps all over his body (cancer probably) but is not in any terrible distress. He sleeps a lot. Funny though, my dad can sense this process in the dog and he acts with great sympathy. He actually laid on the floor with "Hank" last night and pet/comforted him for 15 minutes or so. He, my dad, struggled to get back on his feet so I offered assistance...he declined, and with the aid of a chair found his feet. Impressive.

Music, car drives, and some TV sports (golf, football, hockey, and even Nascar) are still what brings life forth for him. My sole job (as I see it) is to keep him smiling. Fortunately, this is not difficult. In the universe of the Alzheimer's patient spectrum, I consider myself, as a caregiver, having it easy. I have great compassion for those who have it hard.

Every morning he awakens is another gift, and adventure.

Thanks for listening...it means more than I can say to have this community.
