A2A with Jim Comiskey

105

Legendary commodity broker Jim Comiskey joined us today for the first A2A of the new year.

In this 45-minute call, Jim addresses:

  • the current, historic move in crude oil
  • falling natural gas prices
  • how he's consistently profiting trading currencies
  • why he prefers futures options to futures
  • the outlook for the dollar, the euro and ECBQE
  • and much, much more...

I think you'll find this discussion very helpful and a great start to the 2015 A2A season.

Strange MMS update

Herbie, the man cleared from stage 4 lung cancer, called last night to say that Kaiser Permanente, the insurer, was pushing, by calling his son, to take chemo as the cancer was back.

He said that the doctors had not been able to get any blood for a test and he felt fine.

They still have the MMS, yes, the original $20 that cured him, so he will start taking it again.

Not really sure what to think about this, as I find it strange that the insurer is involved. This all comes after 6 doctors cleared him from cancer and were in disbelief when Herbie told them about MMS.

Herbie is still refusing to take chemo. Strange as it kind of reminds me of the 17 year old girl that refused chemo, but as a minor is being forced to take it by the "authorities".

Better get that flu shot, even though it doesn't work on this years strain. Wouldn't want that inventory going waisted.

I take 5,000 iu of vitamin D3. Won't get the flu nor be paralyzed from the injection.

I'm sorry but on the day 2

I'm sorry but on the day 2 separate terrorists incidents come to a bloody climax in Paris Abu Hamza gets sentenced to life in New York?

Something doesn't feel right here, got the distinct feel of a false flag. The thing is at times like this it's important to watch what the other hand is doing.

I'm not going to defend any religion. I despise some aspect of all of them.

I must say though that Churchill's viewpoint seems quite Victorian.

"A culture that welcomes travelers of any race or religion into its tents to eat and drink has been attacked and its radical elements provoked into a religious war."

I'll answer what I quoted from your post above with a persuasive quote that predates the cold war.

How dreadful are the curses which mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step, and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it (Islam) has vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

Yes, the genetic differences between Arab populations and other Whites are marginal. In fact there are very few fixed genetic differences between any World populations. Cultural differences are far more profound.

As I said initially it is my opinion that as the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 the West looked for a new enemy and picked Islam. A culture that welcomes travelers of any race or religion into its tents to eat and drink has been attacked and its radical elements provoked into a religious war.

RE: Q.E.D.

I've been consistent in my posts that Islam is a cancerous belief system. Don't put words in my mouth. I honestly would be more encouraged if the inbreeding were the problem. Per my post directly above, the problem is much worse than I previously thought because it's all by choice and not genetic.

GenePool?

I agree with this deduction/conclusion... However, "homogenous gene pools" are not exclusive to the Muslim population, IMHO! Many years in the military in OCONUS deployments have exposed me to other populations that appear to be their equivalent. The Pacific Rim Islands ( Soma, Guam, Figi ect.), Japan, China, of course EURASIA and some of the tribal cultures in USA ( Mennonite, Amish, NA). I suspect the Hindu culture is also a candidate for this cultural phenomena... Whether their agenda is world domination/extermination of Christians is beyond my knowledge base, but I feel they will follow the leader if the walls of freedom continue to crumble and radical Islam continues to make gains throughout the World.

A much better response than your first, and I gladly defer to your views on the inbreeding matter as I have little understanding of your area of study, Medical Genetics.

Since Muslims don't have an inbred reason to act in this way, then that crutch is removed and killing journalists for drawing cartoons, demanding infidels convert or die, female genital mutilation, honor killings, bomb making for use in killing civilians, colonial settlement without contribution to host societies and the like are solely related to an utterly corrupt belief system.

If the above sentences are hate speech then the thought police have truly won. I'm Charlie.

CPE: Muslims

Allow me to simply reinterpret the logic.

A. Muslims practice interbreeding.

B. Muslims practice jihad.

C. Interbreeding leads to jihad.
