A2A with Bill Murphy of GATA


As most know, Access2Access is a weekly feature in The Vault where subscribers get to ask questions directly of some of the biggest names in metals. This week's guest was Bill Murphy of GATA and, since I'm sure that GATA would like to post this recording to their site, too, I thought I should make an exception and create this public thread.

During today's webinar, members got to ask Bill all sorts of questions. They included:

  • How will the manipulation end and do you have a timetable for it to end?
  • Whatever happened to the "whistleblower" information you mentioned last summer?
  • Could China be suppressing price in order to acquire cheaper physical?
  • Just who and which organizations are behind the manipulation?

I think you'll find this recording to be quite interesting and I encourage you to follow Bill through the GATA site (https://www.gata.org) as well as his subscription service (https://www.lemetropolecafe.com).

Along with the daily podcast summaries, A2A webinars are additional value-added features available to Vault members. Please consider joining in on the fun. Click here for more information: https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/subscribe

Another cry from China about

Another cry from China about gold market manipulation Submitted by cpowell on Thu, 2013-11-07 03:27. Section: Daily Dispatches 10:30p ET Wednesday, November 6, 2013 Dear Friend of GATA and Gold: The Perth Mint's Bron Suckecki today publishes observations from someone in China who has begun to get an idea of gold market manipulation and reports that it is discouraging Chinese gold investors. But Suckecki suggests that the Chinese should just get over it because the world economy has been financialized as interest-free money fuels leveraged speculation in all markets. "The weight of this money in the gold market," Suckecki writes, "overwhelms the non-leveraged money from the 'good-natured and hard-working' just looking for safety. So even if you got rid of fractional reserve banking, futures markets, and manipulative trading tatics (which would help), you would still have this volatility as large investors could still borrow money at little cost and leverage up the little bit of their own money to buy a lot more gold. The consequence of that leverage is that it takes only a small change in price to threaten to wipe their capital out, resulting in quick and rushed liquidations back out." Suckecki doesn't touch on whether and how central banks assist gold market manipulation directly through surreptitious allocation of their metal and their own purchase and sale of gold-related derivatives, as through the Bank for International Settlements: https://www.gata.org/node/13185 But China's government itself is on to that: https://www.gata.org/node/10380 https://www.gata.org/node/10416 https://www.gata.org/node/12917 Suckecki's commentary is headlined "Confusion in Beijing's Gold Shops on Price Manipulation" and it's posted at his blog, GoldChat, here: https://goldchat.blogspot.com/2013/11/confusion-in-beijings-gold-shops-on...

Excellent Bill Murphy interview!

Thanks to Mr. Bill Murphy for his time and to TF for having built this awesome environment and for doing all the work of scheduling, conducting, editing, and publishing our weekly A2A interviews.

Mr. Murphy impressed me as being the real deal. No aligning answers with talking points, no hidden agenda.

Mr. Murphy, who apparently has the patience of Job, has been forensically tracking this beast for 15(?) years and still sounds amazed at the scope of the fraud.

Very insightful to get to hear his candid expert answers to our ‘all over the map’ questions.

Thanks again gentlemen!

It is

incredible that one can stay optimistic in the face of such power and manipulation. Thanks for the inspiration Bill!

How The Progressives’ 100 Year Debasement of America and The Dol

Lowell Ponte – The Great Withdrawal: How The Progressives’ 100 Year Debasement of America and The Dollar Ends Lowell Ponte is co-author with Craig R. Smith of The Great Withdrawal: How the Progressives’ 100-Year Debasement of America and the Dollar Ends (October 2013). Lowell is a libertarian and understands exactly what is going with fiat currency and the eventual collapse of the dollar. Collectivism is dying and that means that authoritarianism isn’t far behind. The Federal Reserve and the Income Tax will be celebrating their 100 year anniversaries and freedom has been dying every since.

Professor Kotlikoff:

Professor Kotlikoff: Government Conspiracy to Hide True Debt Burden "Professor Kotlikoff: The liabilities the government owes are mostly off the books. We have a true debt picture which is about $205 trillion. This is recording all the future obligations the government has, whether they are official obligations or not, such as paying for your social security benefits, mine, or your mother’s Medicare benefits, defense spending, etc. All of these things are really obligations that aren’t recorded on the books as debt, whereas paying off future principal and interest payments on Treasury bills and bonds are recorded. So, anyway, if you take the value of all of those commitments and subtract all the taxes coming to pay those commitments, the difference is what’s called the fiscal gap; and that fiscal gap in the U.S. is now $205 trillion. So, the true debt is $205 trillion; the official debt is only $17 trillion. So, most of the problems we’re facing, most of the debt we have, the vast majority of it is off the books and Congress has done bookkeeping to make sure the public doesn’t see it. So, when we have these big fights over the debt ceiling, it’s really laughable because at the same time we may not be expanding our official debt at a very rapid rate, we are expanding our unofficial debt or off-the-book debt, unrecorded debt, at a very high rate." https://www.financialsense.com/contributors/laurence-kotlikoff/governmen...

Manipulation has ceased to concern me

The Chinese are effectively draining the West's gold reserves to rock-bottom, leaving the bullion banks facing an impossible pile of claims to unobtainable gold. When the banks are no longer able to meet China's delivery requirements, tipping them into default with a crowd of powerful claimants at their doors, will prove highly entertaining. Coming very soon to a theatre near you.
