TFMR Podcast #39 - The Full Willie


Our most-requested guest returns today and you're in for a treat.

Now, I always try to be respectful of your time...and attention span. Therefore, I try to keep these podcasts to something less than 30 minutes. However, visiting with The Jackass is something entirely different and this baby clocks in at about an hour and ten. If you don't have that much time or interest, then you are certainly entitled to skip around and cut the thing short. However, we live in tumultuous times and 2013 promises to be a year of significance, so I strongly encourage you to listen to this entire interview. Maybe break it up into 20 minute intervals if you must. But, The Brain of The Jackass is large and complex. If you skip around too much, you're likely to miss something.

So, if you're ready...kick back, relax and hit the play button.

So, Where does Willie Live?

He does not live in the good 'ol USSA? Where does he hang out?

Listened to the Whole Thing

Thanks Turd, you guys are always entertaining. Lots to think about for the weekend.

I believe the GJ hangs his hat in Costa Rica. Hope that wasn't some sort of secret.

@revelation re; Clinton.

How is it possible not to doubt an assertion this foolish? Its not up there with Bigfoot guarding JFK's still living brain in a secret domed city under the sea but its still totally ridiculous!

Thanks Turd!

This was a fantastic podcast and I'm glad you did not cut it off earlier. I listened to it all the way through!

For others, maybe it would make sense to create multiple podcast segments. You've gotten very good at interviewing and keeping Jim on subject which would make it easier to create the segments.

Kudos and thanks again!

Thank you Turd for the podcast.

Thank you Turd for the podcast. I appreciate all that you do.

I agreed with most of what JW said. What didn’t make sense to me is when JW was inferring that Opec countries like Saudi Arabia could independently decide to abandon the petro dollar and start accepting other denominations and gold instead.

I don’t think this would be an unexpected event for the EE. I see the EE totally in control of the state of affairs in these countries. Most of the leaders and decision makers are merely puppets to them. If Saudi Arabia does decide to dump the petro dollar system, it would be with a full blessing of the EE.

In another note, if we were to have this event take place, it would jumpstart the end game of the USD as the reserve currency. Those holding USD around the world will unload it as fast as possible leading us to an instant hyperinflation event We will then have chaos and bedlam in our hands. I hope to God that this doesn’t take place. Yes, my gold and silver will be worth much more but it would be useless in this state as survival would be more critical then.

Instead I hope that we have a situation where we have a slower deterioration of USD going forward and a constant 15-30% annual appreciation of the metals. Or the acceptance of a gold back currency which would include the USD. This would be the most ideal scenario for us as this would propel the value of our metal holdings without creating major disorder in the world.

Hey Main Street, White Flag! I come in peace...

This seemed like a particularly appropriate place to drop this documentary:

97% Owned

I think you'll really appreciate it; it's from the UK but you've probably already seen the UK-specific parts as they relate to the US before, somewhere else (so don't worry about that), the global macro stuff however... well that would be a different matter.

There are two different versions, one's an hour and the other is two but I've only watched the long one (at least four times and I might watch it again tonight but... well that's not really relevant is it?).

As far as I know the only reason you haven't heard of it, if you haven't (if you have then props to you!), is because it has the % symbol in it's name - bit of an oversight really but hey... it happens.

Here's the trailer:

97% Owned Offical Trailer

Here's the long (full) version:

97% Owned - Economic Truth documentary - How is Money Created

Here's the shorter one (shame on you!):

97% Owned - Positive Money Cut

"Turdville, if you can keep it." -Turd thought that once, I'm sure of it!

P.S. No, I don't think Keiser's seen it; someone should probably get on that.

Great Podcast

Hi Turd,

Thanks for this podcast with Jim Willie. I used to think he was "way out there" when I first heard him a couple of years ago, but as time goes on, I now realize he is dead accurate with what he predicts/sees.

Even though the audio was a bit funky, this is your best podcast to date. I also really enjoyed your interview with Alasdair MacLeod - would love to hear him again on TFMR.

All the best to you. Have a great weekend.
