TFMR Podcast - Friday, October 16


There can be little doubt that The Banks are once again preparing to smash the paper prices of gold and silver. To that end and to spread the word, this podcast has been made a FREE PUBLIC THREAD. Please, I urge you to take the time to listen to this over the weekend.

For today, we begin with a discussion of the two charts below. Here you can see a clear and present price manipulation designed to reset price lower and below the 200-day moving average before trading resumes on Sunday:

From there we take a few moments to discuss the long-term picture for the yen and the miners:

But the majority of the discussion centers upon the fraudulent, borderline criminal processes of The Comex. During the Commitment of Traders week (10/7--10/13), prices were restricted and capped as The Banks dumped longs and added shorts in order to meet new Speculator demand. This was sickeningly exaggerated this past Wednesday and Thursday as the metals finally surged through their respective moving averages. The case can be made that The Cartel Banks added over 22,000 new gold shorts as well as 6,000 new paper shorts.

Consider the following:

By creating 22,500 new contracts in just two days...almost all of them used to take a short position versus a new Speculator long...The Banks created new paper obligations for 2,250,000 ounces of "gold". The entire Comex vault structure only holds 6,704,000 ounces. So, in order to smother momentum and contain price, The Banks effectively shorted 1/3 of the entire Comex Vault in just two days.

How is this fair? How is this even legal??

And now prices are set up to get smashed again. By reviewing the latest Commitment of Traders report ( and comparing it to historical data, it's easy and logical to conclude that another coordinated, manipulative, Cartel Bank-driven price smash is right around the corner...perhaps beginning as soon as Monday. See these charts for reference:

I hope you have a safe and relaxing weekend. However, please be sure that you're mentally and financially prepared for what next week may likely bring.

History Rhymes

History is Rhyming!

WWI was not simply caused by the assassination of the Archduke of Austria but rather by a plethora of factors that were occurring in the same timeline. History is rhyming once again.

Such is the same today, with all things being engineered ad nausaum. Whether it is political, geo, social, financial, or even historical; we must consider what has and is occurring in Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, China, and of course Russia.

If you don’t do things the way the US government wants it done, you will either discover a failed State via your overthrown government by means of a “black ops” movement or you may become the victim of a weather event such as the “rain cannons” that just hit our very own South Carolina in our very own USSofA. What does that tell us when the US government is attacking its own citizens and trying to divide and conquer us? The event occurred where the Church murders occurred near Charlestown. Does Nazi Germany come to mind?

I’m am not a big Doug Casey fan because of how he got started and because it seems he can never ever get enough. But he did put out an excellent piece on guns and survival—for the most part.

“It's an interesting observation that as a practical matter, society is better off if gun ownership is widespread, but that has nothing to do with the moral imperative: human beings have the right to defend themselves, their loved ones, and their property. And when you deny that right by law – it may sound clichéd, but it's true that when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. A system that ensures that only the predators among us have the best weapons is one that's asking for mass-produced tragedy.” DC

If they ever get our guns we are all dead men and women. Make no mistake—“out of my cold dead hands”. All these mass murders, these horrible events; from Columbine to Sandyhook, to Oregon to Charelston are Psye Ops. They are drug induced and mind controlled events. They are a means to turn Public Opinion just like 9.11 was a means – a vehicle to propel the war on terror forward. Millions of lives later and millions more homeless and displaced, we learn that 1/10 % own 90 % of the world’s resources. That’s sounds fair!

There are a plethora of dangerous hot spots all over the globe and the US seems to be in the middle of all of them. It has been that way for a dozen years and it is building to a crescendo that I believe will begin to crest next week like a giant wave. It will come crashing down on us and you will not be counting your gold and silver—you will be counting your 9mm’s, your 308’s and your 357’s along with gallons of water, your 2x 4s and your food supplies. Then it gets real.

This has been a long process and we still have a ways to go. Hopefully we will have time to prepare even more. But its going to be about STUFF! But the worm can turn quickly and it can turn slowly. In today’s world of Nano-seconds, it will turn quickly.

The shooting down of the planes and accusing Russia of the horrendous acts—the sanctions on every State, because we are soooo exceptional and we have the right to be judge, jury, and executioner —it is planned fiction. Of course, we stole 45 Trillion dollars from our own citizens during the on going Fraudclosure gate and yet no banker or affiliate goes to jail. We have a Predatory government and an even more Predatory and corrupt Congress.

What we must realize is that there is no difference between the two political parties. Until we come up with a way to dissolve this corrupt system controlled by the corruptions, we the people will be targeted and eventually herded into FEMA camps. Unless we fight back all the gold in the world will not protect you.

Those who believe they can live peaceably on the edge or in the country while their fellow citizens are harassed, dumbed down, and eventually killed by either the government or marauding gangs are sorely mistaken. “You might ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality. Ayn Rand

Then there is the Libor Scandal, the HFT scandal, the fraudclosure scandal, and of course the Benghazi scandal wherein four of our Foreign Staff, including a US Ambassador (Stevens) were deliberately murdered because they knew too much about the “gun-running” in Libya. And by the by there were no WMD in Iraq, SH never gassed the Kurds (Black Ops), And Syria’s Assad never gassed or barrel bombed his own people. They went to that playbook once too often. Do you see any similarities in those gassing events? Its called propaganda in order to create demonize and create regime change – much like in the Ukraine and the sniping at Donetsk.

Today was Option Expirations. Lets follow that with a follow by Tyler and the gang:

Which takes us back to Mr. Hemke’s excellent piece on the “Candle of Hope” and the S & P @ the 2020-2040 range. We’re getting close.

Charting, and technical analysis (TA), in end game, are only as valid as the geopolitical and historical events supporting them. Those end games are now coming to a close. Chaos and War will soon be upon us.

But what we must remember that nothing occurs in a vacuum and the last 25 years has been a plan “by design and implemented over time”.

I’ve mentioned as the quintessential piece on 9.11. If that doesn’t convince you that the entire fiasco revolving around the takedown of those two monuments of American Capitalism was an inside job, nothing will. That was the video initiated by the loved ones of the first responders who lost their lives that fateful day. There was no agenda other than to get to the truth.

I’ve repeatedly mentioned . While I believe that Dane Wigington has squandered his platform to spread the message that this practice is the most egregious and hateful attack on the planet and its inhabitants in the history of mankind, I still have to give him credit for having the courage to expose what has been happening right before our eyes. I call it Auschwitz x10. I am beyond certain it is causing the drought in California and Brown, Feinstein, et al, are fully cognizant of it. They go along or they die. is by far and away a more accomplished platform for presenting messages and solutions to the problems facing us all—including geo-engineering. It is helping to pave the way towards galvanizing people towards action.

There is an old saying that all politics are local or they begin at a local level. If we as individuals do not wake up and do one thing, we are lost as a people; as a Nation. We need at least 15-20% of the American people to become involved. We all need to dop one thing—to take one Action. Is it in you?

Europe is currently losing its identify because the US threw them under the bus. Seven countries in five years was part of the Wolfowitz Doctrine. Believe me when I tell you that the US foreign Policy wonks knew exactly what they were doing in Syria, Ukraine, and in Libya when they used black ops to overthrow the Status Quo in those states. They’ve been doing the exact same thing for 45 years in many sovereign countries and getting away with it—until now.

What will now happen, only with more of a vengeance, is that the US government will turn on us and eat its young. That would be us if we allow it. They are already devouring the middle class and turning our children into mindless robots via vaccines and media propaganda.

This is what will occur when the US takes in 100,00 Syrian Refugees without vetting them.

And Finally, Greg Hunter always has some interesting people on. I’ve had some serious disagreements with Rick over the years, but this time—props to the guy and a great interview.

Financial Collapse to Wipe away all the Lies. Now that’s a Headline.

What the hey, one more, go to and listen to Santa Claus one more time with his August interview with Greg. I did, and learned much more than the first time around. Pay particular attention to Jim’s “silver is gold on steroids” comment; and how it goes right over Greg Hunter’s head like a comet—whoosh! Sinclair is a gift.

And while you’re there—listen to Bill Holter as he too, is a man among men!

Remember, there are some things more valuable than gold. Our freedom is first among them and freedom is never free.

Thanks for all your work, Craig

I sold my USLV this morning and then went to the gun range and practiced with my competition pistols. Ammo is sure expensive when you are talking about good 22LR. Good thing I made a lot this week with USLV.

And if you want more...

This was recorded late yesterday. You might give it a listen. (The first commenter can bite me, however. What a DB.)

Speaking of shams, charades and frauds

The latest movement of "gold" within the GLD "inventory":


Oct 13 687.20

Oct 14 694.94

Oct 15 700.00

Oct 16 693.75

No, seriously, I'm sure this is all perfectly legit and on the up-and-up. Why wouldn't you think that seven metric tonnes would be shipped around on a daily basis? Of course, that's only about three of these. What's the big deal? No logistical problem at all....<>

EDIT: @Stu: very well stitched informative opinion piece Thanks

Oct 16, 2015 - 8:08pm

I wouldn't mind one final

I wouldn't mind one final smash. I'm at about 98.5% of my intended stack size, and so a few more small buys should complete it. Then we'll see if I can actually stop buying this stuff!
