Another 3-day Weekend? Must Be Time For Some Jackass!


In what has become a tradition here in Turdville, our pal Jim Willie stopped by this morning for a wide-ranging, hour long discussion. <Note: This is a free, public thread!>

This baby checks in at just over an hour so you might want to break it up into parts. Download this to your computer/ipad and, if you need some time away from the pool or the beach, put in your earbuds and go to town! Amongst the topics discussed are these:

  • The latest developments in the budding "Eur-Asian Alliance"
  • The progress the BRIC nations are making in setting up the 21st Century financial system
  • Falling U.S. interest rates and the treasury market
  • DoucheBank and the other walking, TBTF zombies

Jim has promised to join us again for our next 3-day weekend in July. Until then, this hour-long discussion should satisfy even the most starved info-junkie.

Have a great weekend!

And we've had congrats posts to UKIP and posts about Front National in France right in this thread. I'm just posting the Left's reactions. You can call all the epithets you want...what you're seeing is the scary rise of neo-commonsense.

This was posted earlier

But it's a MUST READ. Too bad ZH put it up this evening and not tomorrow morning....

Must be quite a few Austrian Turdites out there who know that the "gold is gone, all 26MM ounces of it, shipped to China".

From the article, this is priceless:

Austria is planning to send auditors to the Bank of England in order to verify the existence of Austrias gold reserves stored in British vaults.

The Austrian accountability office will send a delegation to London in order to check on Austria's gold reserves stored in vaults at the Bank of England. This is reported by Austrian magazine Trend. The measure is seen as a consequence of growing public pressure. There is a rising disbelief among Austrians about the existence of the gold.

“I acknowledge the request. Any grocery store is obliged to do inventory once a year. It is the only way of getting rid of these unreasonable allegations”, Ewald Nowotny, Governor of the National Bank of Austria tells Trend.

Austria officially owns 280 tonnes of gold of which 17 percent are kept in vaults inside the country. Around 150 tonnes are estimated to be stored in London.

In recent years doubts about the existence and the quality of Germanys monetary gold stored at the New York Fed and the Bank of England were raised by a rising number of skeptics. In January the Bundesbank eventually announced plans to repatriate most of Gemanys gold reserves until 2020.

Ukraine crisis: Russia ‘open to dialogue’ with new leader

Neo Nazism, what really is that, lets guess: post WWII ethnic-heterosexual political cleanings and maintenance.

Suppressing of minority rights, would be part of that, one would think, but the term is over used, is it not?

So, securing the US borders is "Neo Nazism"? yeah right.

So, opposing jolly folks equal protection and sodomite marriages is "Neo Nazism"? yeah right

When centric political forces seize power and mobilize and start gassing minority citizens in the millions, I will buy into it being "neo nazi", when they start round ups of illegals or for public display of rump ranging, Ill donate to the cause.

=== Next Post

Where's Ho (outside a french voting both?), when you really need him.

but if you notice, my dear dear friends, NO ONE in turdville will screech that the Chinese are nefarious OIL imperials out to steal others' oil, they are just to supportive of the gold price, as those wonderful chinks are buying gold hand over fist, to have turdites truly demean chinese agression in the south china sea, and raping Africa of its commodity wealth, eh? Gulf of token redo, and not a word in opposition. And the Russians of course get a pass, stealing the crimea, when threatening to sell oil for gold, to buy more gold reserves .... Russian in the Crimea, China is the South China Sea, BUT ITS ALL THE US FAULT, eh? Duplicity abounds, as there is plenty of fault and wrongs to go around, by the totalitarian governments, USSA included, but not sole devil around.

Add the Austrians to a growing list....

"Among those nations that have either reclaimed their physical gold reserves or where initiatives to do so are in process, WealthCycles has written about gold repatriation efforts in Romania, Venezuela, Ecuador, Switzerland, Poland and Germany."

Too bad that the Governor of the National Bank of Austria has already concluded these are "Unreasonable allegations" comparing this to an annual inventory of a grocery store.

Nothing will come of this and no physical evidence will be presented to the Austrian citizens to support the predetermined conclusion. Too much is at stake.

Responding to your edit from yesterday regarding Canadian immunity:

How much time the current international financial system has left dictates what can be done to us, and to you. Let's just say it would be much easier for this part of Canada to disassociate and start over. And we are still fairly well armed here, for Canada that is (Nothing like the toys our Nevada neighbors have: One even has both a 12.7 and 20 mm rifle!). I see a possibility that Canada and the US could be simultaneously balkanized (as part of some archaic NAU scheme) in which case there is no place I would rather be establishing commerce with the half dozen resourceful western states within say 1000 km below me and dumping the pussified, tea-drinking ultrasocialists out east. Socialism has already proven a failure out in the open and people obviously do not want to be ruled over by others who do not suffer any consequences for their wrong decisions. It's not the time for politicians to push more socialism, out here especially.

@ delacroix and skateboard

Now that is truly funny. An intervention with her will give one a black eye. When they are 79, they do not care about political correctness nor going to jail for someone meddling in their lives. That is why it is also dangerous to rob a store it there is an old man buying something and he has a 40 pistol in his coat pocket. He will use it. She may club you with the skateboard.

Rickards has stated while on

Rickards has stated while on tour, and in his book, (though I have not read), he has seen a letter signed by Obama indicating all the Au is in place. The letter was to the Chinese. Go Figure. I wouldn't want to be him if he lied to them. They tend to execute white collar criminals.

As for the other posts who contemplate where's the gold.. In past posts of mine you will see the final report on World Trade Centers dated in 2005 though published late 2006. In the report it links Marcos gold from the Philippines to the Trade Center gold. You may wish to review that past comment as it lists page and document.

Also, I believe the US has "some" gold. Having seen them take Philippine, Iraq, and now Ukraine gold leads me to believe its not per chance this happens. The Elite know gold is money and power. So would they, in their right minds, sell it? Again, its entirely possible its gone, re Philippines, 1986, Iraq 2005, Ukraine 2014. It certainly happened to those 3rd world countries, and the US is accused of being 3rd world.

If so, then who is the 'Elite' that hold gold. I'm sure the World Trade Center gold has been refined and its footprint or fingerprints wiped & changed.

This was posted earlier in this thread.. Much of the world’s sovereign gold reserves have been stored for safekeeping for many years in the vaults of bullion banks and other international financial institutions, largely in London and the United States. The reasons the world has stored its gold in the bastions of Western democracy vary: in the case of Poland, as we reported last week, gold bullion reserves were spirited out of the country ahead of the invading Nazis during World War II, first to France, then to the U.S. Physical gold is a bit bulky as a medium to use for buying and selling when you’re dealing in millions, billions and trillions, so governments have been content for the most part to leave it in place and merely trade it around on paper or digital 1s and 0s. Because the largest bullion banks are headquartered in the West, and because the U.S. dollar has been the world’s currency for commerce and bank reserves, much of the world’s gold has ended up sitting in Western vaults. That tradition is changing quickly. Among those nations that have either reclaimed their physical gold reserves or where initiatives to do so are in process, WealthCycles has written about gold repatriation efforts in Romania, Venezuela, Ecuador, Switzerland, Poland and Germany. As is true of many nations, most of Finland’s 49.1 tons of gold reserves is held outside the country’s borders, the bulk of it in London. But at least some of its citizens see the handwriting on the wall and have persuaded their government leaders to at least take the concept of repatriation seriously. Leaders of the Finnish movement are calling for a national referendum on the matter no later than May 2014.

Motivational dynamics

What motivates a complete human being. Is it the truth or is it the desire to find comfort in the collective consciousness. Of course most people go for the collective consciousness. This is the way that nature uses it's discretionary powers to further it's agenda of getting the work done. To seek truth and enlightenment is the way of the true warrior.

Yet another assault on $1280

Or so it appears...

May 27, 2014 - 4:15am
May 27, 2014 - 4:43am


  • Global Physical Silver demand continues to increase
  • est 99.9% of Silver stacker transitions is from 'non-stacker' to 'stacker'
  • Approx 10 months ago the silver chart reached a functional low limit in the 18-19 range, and has been sitting on or near that threshold ever since.
  • In that 10-month period the WFCS media has pumped crypto-currencies, made repeated cases against the USD reserve currency, and adopted the GMM (gold market manipulation) narrative.
  • The WFCS has yet to present a 'nation'less digital reserve currency as their recommendation to replace the USD as the reserve currency.
  • The silver chart is still the single price reference for all of the world's physical silver transactions (this will end)
  • est 99.9% of the those aware of the silver chart believe that it displays the results of some type of traded market
  • The USD is still 100% the world's reserve currency as the value of all other fiat currencies is set relative to the USD.

(Cases made against the USD in subordinate contexts (e.g. the oil-trade "Petrol Dollar") are completely irrelevant, as trade in any fiat currency is a trade in a USD valued currency. Suggested alternatives to USD venues (e.g. BRICS bank, or Alternate IMF) are equally ridiculous as those failed efforts were to be funded with USDs or USD valued currencies)

  • Media SILVER Blackout- Positive Silver monetary information is blacked out in the WFCS misinformation media (ZH, Bloombert, CNBC, etc...) and even appears to have infected/affected many PM analysts.
  • Silver is Money. The WFCS with all it's currencies, charts, reports and institutions is not Money.

The Gold Fix is Inby Greg

The Gold Fix is In

by Greg Canavan / on May 27, 2014 at 3:02 pm

Yesterday we mentioned that a big move lay ahead for gold — either up or down. It didn’t come overnight though. With the US equity market closed for Memorial Day, there wasn’t a lot happening in the gold sector. We watch and wait…

Whether it’s by coincidence or not, we don’t know, but gold has been very quiet ever since Deutsche Bank dumped its seat on the London gold fixing panel in late April. For some time before that regulators were sniffing around the London gold ‘fix’…and something didn’t smell quite right.

The London gold fix is a process by which five investment banks set (errr…fix) the price of gold on a twice daily basis in London. It’s been going on like that since 1919 when NM Rothschild controlled the process.

But in January, Deutsche Bank announced that it would relinquish its gold fixing seat (under pressure from the German financial regulator). It hoped to sell its seat to another player, but curiously no one was interested. As a result, it resigned the seat in late April, giving two weeks’ notice.

At the same time, Deutsche resigned from the silver fix. Because the daily silver fix only had three participants, this move effectively killed the price setting process. The silver fix, which began in 1897, will cease in August this year.

So here we have a major player getting out of a supposedly venerable position very quickly. Then, just a few weeks later, the UK’s Financial Services Authority (FSA) fines Barclays Bank £26 million for manipulating the gold fixing process. Of course this was just an isolated incident, and the FSA also fined a Barclays ‘rogue trader’ £96,000 pounds for doing the manipulating. It’s not as if it’s systemic or anything…

Maybe that’s why the gold price has been remarkably quiet these past few weeks. The fixers know the regulators are watching. Everyone’s behaving. But it’s not going to stay like that for long…

I would highly recommend reading the full article at

Breaking news - no shit - new terror alerts

terror alerts around the world

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats, and have therefore raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940, when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance". The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from "Pissed Off" to "Let's get the Bastards". They don't have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide". The only two higher levels in France are "Collaborate" and "Surrender". The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability.

Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing". Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides".

The Germans have increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs". They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbor" and "Lose".

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels.

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Americans meanwhile, and as usual, are carrying out pre-emptive strikes on all of their allies "just in case".

Canada doesn't have any alert levels.

New Zealand has raised its security levels - from "baaa" to "BAAAA". Due to continuing defense cutbacks, New Zealand has only one more level of escalation, which is "I hope Australia will come and rescue us".

Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from "No worries" to "She'll be alright, mate". Three more escalation levels remain: "Crikey!", "I think we'll need to cancel the barbie this weekend" and "The barbie is cancelled". So far no situation has ever warranted use of the final escalation level.

Hello Turdites

Just thought today was a good day to come by, post a grenade and run -

Jim Willie again? You sycophants just won't accept what an incredible and WRONG jerk this guy is - well have fun with that. HAARP caused Sandy and Chernobyl was a CIA plot? Yeah. Somebody give that Jackass some Midol.

AU is near 1280 after so many Friday night jockeys saying "don't be short this weekend" - More jerks.

And now Scottsdale is flogging a TFMR silver round? Guess they have to do something to sell all the silver that's gathering dust in their vaults that NOBODY wants.

There's a war in the Ukraine and Austria wants an audit - GOLD MUST GO DOWN!

You are not in charge. I am not in charge. The psychopaths are in charge and nothing will free these markets or change attitudes short of a well-placed nuke or an angry caldera.

Wake me when AU is 2500. See you in another 6 months.
