Holiday Jackass Part One

52

Earlier today, The Golden Jackass himself (Jim Willie) spent over two hours here in Turdville, discussing everything from the Yemeni Crisis to the new AIIB to a potential Nicaraguan Canal. This first recording is just the opening 30 minutes, as Jim was getting warmed up.

During this segment, Jim discusses:

  • The origins of the war in Ukraine and the emerging conflict in Yemen
  • The increasing velocity of the global moves away from U.S. dollar hegemony
  • The importance of the new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)

Toward, the end of this segment, the audio quality drops off dramatically and we had to work to fix it over the rest of the call. Once I'm able to edit the remaining recording into something useful, I'll post it as well.

TURD... looking forward to PART 2

I wanted to share this with the fellow Turdites on this special Holiday interview with Jim Willie. For anyone who wants to know what the Death of the Bakken Oil Field will look like, this will probably give you all a good clue:

What Will The Death Of The Great Bakken Oil Field Look Like??

Initial shale oil production at the Bakken started in 2007 and by 2027 will be back all the way down from WHERE IT COMETH. By 2035, it will be a stripper play. Nothing like using 4th grade math to destroy the notion of U.S. Energy Independence.

I think you can tell that, when I start to pay a lot of attention to something, it's usually pretty bad and significant. This is definitely BOTH.
