A2A with John Titus

81

John Titus is the producer of the fantastic YouTube channel, "BestEvidence", and we recently featured his most recent work in this post: https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/7146/must-watch-video. Here at TFMR, we frequently discuss the LIES, SPIN and MOPE that emanate from The Fed and their sycophant media. John's work puts facts behind this analysis and we should all be grateful for his efforts.

Before we begin, perhaps you should watch these two videos. While we heartily recommend each and every video posted on the BestEvidence site, these two really serve the purpose of shedding light on the outright lies and deception of The Fed and its Board of Governors.

In today's 40-minute presentation John addresses a number of items, including:

  • the myth of eventual "Fed balance sheet normalization"
  • the deliberate lies told by then Chairman Bernanke in order to "sell" TARP in 2008
  • the so-called "independence" of The Fed as it pertains to the executive and legislative branches of government
  • what really happens behind the scenes at FOMC meetings and how policy statements are crafted

Please take the time to listen to this entire podcast. The FOMC meets again next week and you're about to be bombarded with a new cascade of SPIN and MOPE from LIESman, the BBB and all the rest. Only with your eyes open will you be able to see the truth and we thank John for helping to shine the light of truth on the process.

Drug prices

Shouldn't the relative strength of the dollar make the drug prices lower in the U.S., everything else being equal, or am I seeing this backward?

Interesting day and A2A.

Keep stacking

US Drug Prices

While Martin Shkreli certainly deserves his reputation as a greedy, ruthless capitalist, gouging of US drug prices has been and remains a serious problem across the entire US pharmaceutical industry.

Hurricane Patricia - Jeff Berwick

Wow. Hope Jeff Berwick (Dollar Vigilante) gets through this okay. He lives in Acapulco, which is on the edge of the impact zone.

New Whistleblower Campaign

https://usuncut.com/news/whistleblow-wall-street/

The campaign’s website empowers workers to anonymously report wrongdoings. The easy-to-use homepage features links such as “Blow the Whistle” and “I want to confidentially speak to a lawyer and learn my rights.” The website’s process is encrypted, further protecting potential whistleblowers.

Icelandic Supreme Court

https://usuncut.com/world/iceland-sentences-26-bankers-to-a-combined-74-years-in-prison/

In a move that would make many capitalists’ head explode if it ever happened here, Iceland just sentenced their 26th banker to prison for their part in the 2008 financial collapse.

USD/JPY has really moved over the last few days

And 1160 is the best that the cartel can do?

What does that mean - are they losing their grip?

Turd, You're gonna need a bigger chart!

(Well maybe one day...)

Silver, Gold & HUI finding a little support at 1160, 15.80, and 131.

Silver at 15.80 is really proving stubborn for the cartel - personally I wonder why?

In and out of dust

Not bad, 92 cents for a half hour work. Time to get back to painting the ceiling.
