A2A with Bill Holter

80

Just a great call earlier today illustrating why we host these webinars in the first place. Bill spent nearly an hour answering a wide array of questions from a large group of listeners. Great stuff and you should definitely take the time to listen yourself.

Over the course of the call, Bill addresses topics such as:

  • The Greek situation
  • The OCC report last week showing the exponential increase in commodity derivatives
  • Yesterday's internet and system "glitches"
  • How to protect yourself against confiscation and/or confiscatory taxes
  • And much, much more

Again, this is a lenghthy call so break it up into separate sittings if you need to. Just be sure to take the time to give this a thorough listen. You won't be disappointed.

another perspective on the "lights out"

Most of the banks & probably all of the major companies are running slim on IT staff. Staff numbers have been cut to the bone in the pursuit of profit. It is getting to the point where a systemic issue will be exposed. Any weakness unveiled is then available for exploitation..

Please don't immediately jump to the conclusion that an outage = a hack. The real reason is probably closer to home & wearing an expensive suit.

Psalm 140:1-8 is appropriate

Psalm 140[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 Rescue me, Lord, from evildoers;
protect me from the violent,
2 who devise evil plans in their hearts
and stir up war every day.
3 They make their tongues as sharp as a serpent’s;
the poison of vipers is on their lips.[b]

4 Keep me safe, Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
protect me from the violent,
who devise ways to trip my feet.
5 The arrogant have hidden a snare for me;
they have spread out the cords of their net
and have set traps for me along my path.

6 I say to the Lord, “You are my God.”
Hear, Lord, my cry for mercy.
7 Sovereign Lord, my strong deliverer,
you shield my head in the day of battle.
8 Do not grant the wicked their desires, Lord;
do not let their plans succeed.

Just remember in respect

Just remember in respect of the Greek vote that if the opposition parties side with Tsipras (which they probably will in order to stay in the Euro), then it'll pass anyway even if some of his own party rebels. I suspect it's the reaction of the Greek people that will be more important.

Re: Greece has CAVED

Greek colleague at work told me, today, that the opposition are all set to approve the deal. So event if a faction of Siryza votes against it will pass with opposition votes. Not sure what it will do for Trsipras's political future though.

It seems

We're leaving the up-is-down, left-is-right, right-is-wrong, bad-is-good, lies-are-truth weird Distorted reality of the past 5 years...for something that is even worse?

you have to admit

Tsipras makes our corrupt polititians look like pikers. We all know they are lying about their campaign promises but they go back on them quietly and over time. This cat just detonated the thermonuclear weapon of campaign lies and in record time. He should sail his mega yacht over here and run for senate.
