A2A with Chris Martenson of PeakProsperity.com


The perfect A2A guest at the perfect time. Earlier today, Chris Martenson stopped by for a frank discussion of current events including Ukraine Crisis, ECBQE and global gold demand.

This was an extraordinarily good A2A. Chris is as smart as they come and the reasoned opinion and analysis he offers at his site, PeakProsperity.com is second to none. It was an honor to have him back in Turdville and the timing of his visit could not have been better.

Please take the time to give this podcast a thorough listen. You'll be glad you did.

I love it! Chris mentioned PNAC. Look folks, all the dots of everything that pisses you off about the state of the world, either politically or economically is connected by the signers and crafters of PNAC. They have names. Read them. Many, at least half, are dual citizens. All are "internationalists" - at best! It is not Project for new american century, it is project for no american century. I have posted PNAC connections, 9/11, MENA, and now Ukraine for two years, here. It is the center hub of this world's insanity. Clearly, if there are people that can do harm to Americans it is them. https://www.informationclearinghouse.info/pdf/RebuildingAmericasDefenses... Good on ya, Chris...

Keynes guarantees socialism/ fascism

I was listening to Andy Hoffman today and he made this point. Pretty sure it was him...anyway...the point is when the bankers are allowed to control our government and bail themselves out, after they have bankrupted their own enterprise, it guarantees socialism. The State becomes so powerful that it morphs into this creature that can dictate everything, set prices on everything, dictate justice /injustice...and then control the police to heavy hand the people, as the people whom have had everything stolen from them, demand some justice....

I had not really thought about this, but "idea" of TBTF is an admission of no personal liberty. If you accept the concept of TBTF, you may as well as look at your children and say, "sorry, I'm screwing your entire future over". It is a very big point....it is not simply favoring corporations, but cementing fascism, corporatism, and ultimately a dystopian police state future and all that that entails...

Feb15 CME gold contracts rolled over to Apr15?

Do we have to wait until tomorrow to learn if the 20k open interest Feb gold contracts have closed out or rolled over into April or is some of that info available tonight? Would a kind soul point me to where I might see how many might still be standing for delivery of that rather large number of contracts? Thanks!

Very Good Chemistry

Keep in touch with Chris. Two of a kind. Excellent summary of the world situation.

Look At It This Way

Distort a theory and assert it as correct. Game over if you control the banks.

Name one.

This one is very subjective, and largely depends on personal preference, but many people pay the extra premium for Eagles on the theory that they are the most widely recognized silver coin in the world, and hence will be easily resold. Others buy straight bullion or bars for the cheaper premium above spot, on the theory that ounces and price paid are all that matter.

Hope this helps a little, and personally I like both common coins like Eagles or maples, and I like the straight bullion bars too!
