TFMR Podcast - Friday, January 30


Right on cue, gold rebounded today and recovered most of the contract expiration losses of yesterday. Now, with another volatile week ahead, can it crawl back toward $1300 and, if it does, what will happen with silver?

As we wrap up the week and the month (a month which saw gold +8% while the S&P was -3%), just a discussion of these charts:



the HUI and the S&P

And this crazy chart of 10-year German and Japanese bond yields

Regarding the totally insane global interest rate picture, please print off and read this remarkable story from Zerohedge. Then take the printed copy and add it to your Stack For Posterity.

And finally, here's a fun article from SRSrocco covering many of the topics we regularly discuss here in Turdville:

Have a great weekend!

Over 2 million Ukrainians have fled to Russia?

Half are of soldier age?

Shouldn't the US, I mean, cough, cough, NATO be at the border shooting them so that they aren't hurt by the devil himself, Vlad? As a humanitarian service, natch...


who is zoomin who??? If you want to know what you definitely should not be thinking, read American press.

Seahawks by 10

A couple of hard hits will take sufficient wind out of the losers sails. Hawks D will score 14. Brady will look like a dejected prep school silverspooner whose rich Father can't save him...darn it!

Katy Perry will do some weird illuminati/devil freakshow at halftime. The whole enchilada- triangle hand signs, horns, etc. etc etc. Come on. really?

Commercials will be oversexed to a point of embarrassment. How many ED guys are there!?

Cure for ED? Sarah Palin is popular because an IQ of 105 with commonsense and basic morality is more popular than an IQ of 145, not even a shred of consideration of common sense, no morality, and a clear NWO agenda....not to mention she does create some uncomfortable "GILF" feelings.

PMs are rumbling on the launchpad. Impressive action Friday. Look at the volume and price pressure of GFI in the last minutes of trading....I've said that sh!t so many times though....sigh...

Oh, and Chilly D seems to have a heart full of meanness and a fugly mug. Come on. He recomended selling from 22 on. Ok, good on ya, mate...The window for selling at 48 plus was open for a couple of hours...not many hit the bid. Lost $15 in the next few days!! Turd is right in saying "it has never been more valuable,than right now...." Look at the Russell 2k vs gold....on the weeklies it looks like a ship sailing off the flat earth ocean. We only have seen this once before in the last 40 years....99-2000...FOUR DECADES ..and no central banks were accumulating then.....Brown's Bottom as I recall...Clearly, with big buyers, aka central banks buying, now....does anyone think that price appreciation will be orderly? How? "Uh, yes, Apmex, I need 100 tonnes of gold bullion....sure, I can hold" This is not the same environment as 2000.....

And how the heck does the NWO think that we can have a one world currency when the Euro can't even last a decade and a half? And the Europeans with their little variations in culture can't do it..the world???...It is not possible for disparate cultures to reconcile cultural differences w a common currency....that IS the currency's job....

now on to my Illuminati provided distraction, aka, thinker turner-offer....

FUBM and TB!! Go Hawks!!

Interesting panel discussion on Ukraine

Thanks KEG. Wish we could hear more honest debate in the U.S....

Feb 1, 2015 - 9:45am

That secret society thing...

Not a bad idea, actually. Kudos to JY. Anyway, if anybody is around the Houston, TX area and wants to meet up to network, hang out, whatever, shoot me a PM. We can have the inaugural meeting of the Turd Society, Houston chapter.

Ukraine cannon fodder on the run

I suspect there are a lot more that have left for other countries as well

January 31, 2014


Translated by Kristina Rus

More than one million male citizens of Ukraine, which is currently in the process of the fourth wave of mobilization, are already on the territory of the Russian Federation, which was declared by the resolution of Verkhovnaya Rada as the "aggressor".

The relevant data was reported at a press conference in Kiev by the founder of the Ukrainian sociological company Research & Branding Group, Yevgeny Kopatko.

"According to the Federal Migration Service there are 2 million 430 thousand citizens of Ukraine now in Russia, including 1 million 172 thousand men of military age".

Translators Note:

2.5 million in addition to 2.5 million in Crimea, in addition to 3-4 million in Donbass ... do the math!

Paying off debt

I agree about paying off debt but sometimes it just does not make sense. I have a car loan 1.5 and a house loan 4.25. Guess which one I am focusing on paying off first. I could pay off the car loan pretty quickly - like now if I wanted to but you have to keep some dry powder and the interest is minimal. I am also looking for a cheaper house loan if I can find a 3.5 I might do it. If interest rates go negative for savings accounts I will reconsider.

% of assets in PMs and confiscation direction

Sounds like a few hardcore PM believers. No debt, paid off everything and ideally would like to get off the grid. Its the right thing to do and to aim for as taxing structures for 1) immovable assets and 2) financial assets are sitting ducks for easy confiscation.

PMs should hopefully be last. Just not enough in this country to be worth the effort while the BRICS are controlling the ultimate price. Should work out well for us.

Obama versus Palin

I guess we will never know what the quality of her teleprompter skills would have been....

At least one could have some nice horny library secretary fantasies while watching her, that would have been the biggest advantage.

Anyways, Who am I to judge living at the other side of the pond haha!

FalseFlag FlashBack to the good ole days...(for perspective)

(because it helps to see the humor in this)

Just a clip from this time of year in 2009, during the (now known to be 100% manufactured) great financial crisis of 2008...


January 30, 2009 | Treasury Department CPP Transaction Report

The U.S. Treasury Department purchases a total of $1.15 billion in preferred stock from 42 U.S. banks under the Capital Purchase Program.

February 2009

February 3, 2009 | Federal Reserve Press Release

The Federal Reserve announces the extension, through October 30, 2009, of the existing liquidity programs scheduled to expire on April 30, 2009. The Board of Governors and the FOMC note "continuing substantial strains in many financial markets." In addition, the swap lines between the Federal Reserve and other central banks are also extended to October 30, 2009. The expiration date for the TALF remains December 31, 2009, and the TAF does not have an expiration date.

TALF! TAF! All the lengthy detailed statements. how they've fallen. But it's good to look back at this if you can stomach all the silliness. Notice how granular the script was. All kinds of high profile interviews and speeches.

Now compare to today and what do we see?? The situation today is 10 times more fubar than 7 years ago, but where are the big players? Who is the front man for today's fiasco. This isn't even a real person!!!

keep this in mind as we get into February and the USD/Euro/Yuan/SGE/"Gold" b.s. starts just magically happening.

Groups that operate in a mental/morally depraved state always digress into incoherent babel.

Back in the day they had Bear Stearns liquidate hedge funds, and Carlyle Capital (h/t Bush 41 and his nwo buds) claim defaults, AIG, etc.. There were big emotionally driven press conferences and everything. Now what? SNB: "we unpeg from euro" IMF: "we did not know that". clunk.

It's been too long. Everybody on both sides has false flag fatigue. All the programs and policies never really ended, and never really continued, it was all episodic. ugh.

So now ARE WE REALLY going to go through this whole replace the USD thing? With all it's ALL the Gold went to China, New China Russian clearance Bank, SGE New World Gold Market, CHINA tweets: "we want RMB to be HMFCIC" , The SNB unpegs from EURO and Starts Pimping the RMB within a week, Greece Quits, Greece loves Russia, and on and on the $h17 show goes. (and does anybody really believe that all these random <wink wink> events are just "happening"??)

Hey, maybe this all just seems anti-climactic since i've been posting FOR OVER A YEAR that they were going to do this!!!! who knows, but we've made it this far, might as well perk up for next week and see if we hear anything about a NEW PHYSICAL (not really) GOLD MARKET, The East!!! WHaaaatttTTT????? ... The EAST?? what a coinzcidenczze!!! zz zzz zzzzz z zz zzzzzzzz
