Wow, this was a great A2A! When you have time, be sure to listen to the entire recording. You won't be disappointed.

Over the course of this hour long discussion, Bill offers opinions and insights on a variety of topics including:

  • The recent release of the "Panama Papers" and subsequent truth bombs that may be on the way
  • The impossibility of accurately predicting a dollar price for gold after the expected reset
  • Chinese involvement in physical metal accumulation as well as paper metal manipulation
  • Whether "the rally you don't sell" has begun and silver's potential upside

And MUCH, MUCH more. Again, please be sure to give this a thorough listen. You might also forward the link to family and friends once the Vault restriction is lifted tomorrow.

Government Stupidity At It's Best; 4 Stories For The Price of 1

NY Governor Andrew Cuomo Issues Travel Ban To Numerous States Over Lax Gun Laws

Posted 04/07/2016 2:41 pm by PatriotRising with 2 comments

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Friday morning that a travel ban has been placed on 6 states in the US, citing their relaxed gun laws and potential harm to New Yorkers.

The states affected by the ban include Florida, Texas, Idaho, Arizona, Utah and Vermont. That number is expected to grow as the Governor’s office continues to review gun laws across the country, to see which states would be a danger to visitors.

“We see states like Florida, who have no magazine-clip capacity limit. If you’re at the beach on vacation with your family, you could have someone walking around on that very same beach who is concealing six or seven 100-round drums for his Glock. Sure he’d have to wear a big jacket to conceal them and he’d be really warm in the Florida sun, but it can still happen,” said Cuomo during a news briefing.

When asked about the NY SAFE Act magazine capacity limit, Cuomo touched on another reason to stay away from the banned states, even going as far as to say that any other state in the Country is now a potential problem as a result of the SAFE Act.

Cuomo explained, “After we introduced the SAFE Act, New Yorkers had to give up any magazine-clips that held more than 10 rounds. We allowed them to be sold out of state, but then realized that all of the other states now have these dangerous magazine-clips. So, it’s best that New Yorkers simply stay in New York where everyone only has magazine-clips that hold 10 or less rounds. We don’t want to risk exposing them to the same magazine-clips that we were trying to get rid of in the first place. Now, they’re another state’s problem and not ours. Sometimes when we deem something a problem, we just hand it off to our neighbors and walk away.”

When a reporter asked Governor Cuomo if this were an April Fools joke, Cuomo said that this is absolutely not a joking matter.

FDA approved fraud: The FDA conducts NO scientific studies on drugs

(NaturalNews) Wait ... What? The federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reallydoesn't conduct any scientific studies on the very drugs it approves? No, it doesn't, and the facts surrounding this reality will shock and anger you.

This point was recently brought out – again – by the Alliance for Natural Health, in a short video made in response to a bogus Public Broadcasting System (PBS) documentary, in which the taxpayer-funded network claimed that vitamin and nutrient supplements are not regulated at all by the federal government.

While that is simply not true, PBS nevertheless repeated the claim, echoing what other government officials, Big Pharma representatives and operatives of the traditional medical industry have said.

"The claim is that drugs are tightly regulated, while supplements are not regulated at all," the video says. "This is totally false but a recent documentary from the Public Broadcasting Service's Frontline made the claim anyway."

The documentary went on to claim that supplements may actually be dangerous, even though there is a wealth of evidence noting that they are among the safest things humans can ingest when it comes to maintaining good health.

More at risk of dying from a PRESCRIPTION drug

What's more, as is usually the case when a government entity is shilling for Big Pharma, the alliance noted that PBS' Frontline never made mention of the fact that prescription medications pose the real danger, killing more than 100,000 people a year. [1]

Boom: Another Vaccine Whistleblower Steps Out Of The Shadows

Now we have another: Dr. Peter Fletcher.

The Daily Mail has the story (3/29/16): “Former [British] science chief: ‘MMR fears coming true’”.

“A former Government medical officer responsible for deciding whether medicines are safe has accused the Government of ‘utterly inexplicable complacency’ over the MMR triple vaccine for children.”

“Dr Peter Fletcher, who was Chief Scientific Officer at the Department of Health, said if it is proven that the jab causes autism, ‘the refusal by governments to evaluate the risks properly will make this one of the greatest scandals in medical history’.”

“He added that after agreeing to be an expert witness on drug-safety trials for parents’ lawyers, he had received and studied thousands of documents relating to the case which he believed the public had a right to see.”

“He said he has seen a ‘steady accumulation of evidence’ from scientists worldwide that the [MMR] measles, mumps and rubella jab is causing brain damage in certain children.”

“But he added: ‘There are very powerful people in positions of great authority in Britain and elsewhere who have staked their reputations and careers on the safety of MMR and they are willing to do almost anything to protect themselves’.”

“In the late Seventies, Dr. Fletcher served as Chief Scientific Officer at the DoH [Dept. of Health] and Medical Assessor to the Committee on Safety of Medicines, meaning he was responsible for deciding if new vaccines were safe.”

“He first expressed concerns about MMR in 2001, saying safety trials before the vaccine’s introduction in Britain were inadequate.”

“Now he says the theoretical fears he raised appear to be becoming reality.”

“He said the rising tide of autism cases and growing scientific understanding of autism-related bowel disease have convinced him the MMR vaccine may be to blame.”

“’Clinical and scientific data is steadily accumulating that the live measles virus in MMR can cause brain, gut and immune system damage in a subset of vulnerable children,’ he said.”

Ronnie Corbett's best jokes

A man was marooned on a desert island. One day a beautiful woman arrives in a wet suit. 'When did you last have a smoke?' she asks. 'Five years ago.' So she gets out a cigar and he smokes it. She unzips her wet suit a bit and says, 'When did you last have a drink?' He said, 'Five years ago.' So she gets out a bottle of Scotch and he has a drink. Then she unzips her wet suit a bit more and says, 'And when was the last time you played around?' He looks at her in amazement and says: 'You're not telling me you've got a set of golf clubs in there?'

A cement mixer collided with a prison van on the Kingston by-pass. Motorists are asked to be on the look-out for 16 hardened criminals.

We will be talking to an out of work contortionist who says he can no longer make ends meet.

There was a fire at the main Inland Revenue office in London today, but it was put out before any serious good was done.

All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my right hand.

For some time, my wife's had this ridiculous idea that I'm playing too much golf. Actually, it came to a head at about 11.30 last night. She suddenly shouted at me: "Golf, golf, golf. All you ever think about is bloody golf!". And I'll be honest, it frightened the life out of me. I mean, you don't expect to meet somebody on the 14th green at that time of night.

This is a message for seven honeymoon couples in a hotel in Peebles: Breakfast was served three days ago.

French wine growers fear that this year's vintage may be entirely spoiled due to the grape treaders' sit-in.

West Mercia police announced tonight that they wish to interview a man wearing high heels and frilly knickers, but the chief constable said they must wear their normal uniforms.

It was revealed in a government survey published today that the prime minister is doing the work of two men, Laurel and Hardy.

We'll be talking to a car designer who's crossed a Toyota with Quasimodo and come up with the Hatchback of Notre Dame.

After a series of crimes in the Glasgow area, Chief Inspector McTavish has announced that he is looking for a man with one eye. If he doesn't find him, he's going to use both eyes.

We've just heard that in the English Channel, a ship carrying red paint has collided with a ship carrying purple paint. It is believed that both crews have been marooned.

A grandfather has gone missing after eating four cans of baked beans, two cauliflowers and a jar of gherkins. His family have made an emotional appeal for him not to come home for at least a fortnight.

Today is our anniversary. It's just 12 years ago today when she said "I do". It certainly surprised me, because I didn't think she did.

That was the night when I leapt onto the dancefloor and did my rather racy impression of John Travolta. I suppose it must have been the animal in me. Well, I had a ferret down my trousers.

This new controller thinks I am the funniest man in Britain. He's been told to stay in bed and take things easy for a while.

I remember that day clearly, because it was the one day there wasn't a sale at Allied Carpets.

This joke dates back to 256 BC which, as scholars of ancient Egypt will know, was the year of the famous wildcat strike by the amalgamated union of eunuchs and allied sopranos, in a dispute over severance pay.

Since the last joke, I'd like to thank all those of you who have written in with suggestions about what I can do with my act, one or two of you with diagrams.

Offers of work have been flooding in. Last week I was invited to go on a round-the-world cruise. By the chairman of the Flat Earth Society.

This week I was asked to do a very important after-dinner speech. I said: "Do you want me to be funny?" They said: "No, just be yourself."

Panama Papers Reveal Details Of MASSIVE UK Gold Heist

THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY

Panama Papers Include Gold Heist Money Scheme | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC

Save time and skip right to the 2-minute mark for the details.

Good clip. I can barely tolerate Rachel Madddow but she is the only who has covered this angle of the #panamapapers. Under discussion is the infamous Brinks-Mat robbery of 1983. This particular gold heist was considered the Crime of the Century due to the massive take. There are new details about what happened to the stolen gold and the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca is heavily involved.

Meanwhile Wikileaks tweeted the following about the Panama Papers and George Soros.

War on Cash – a Piece of a

War on Cash – a Piece of a bigger Puzzle?

For over a decade the World has experienced a peculiar kind of war – the war on cash. According to governmental propaganda, the noble reason behind it is the fight against money laundering and financing terrorism. Meanwhile, the involvement of the HSBC in the biggest money laundering for Mexican drug cartels scandal was swept under the rug. The bank never formally admitted anything. It had to pay a penalty but the fact is that no employee faced charges, not to mention any jail time.

Knowing the above, can you actually believe in the war on cash being waged against criminals? No. You simply cannot. There are two true reasons behind this:

Firstly, increasing control over the citizen. I wrote about it more than a year ago in this article - 'Attack on cash = more power for the state and banks'.

Secondly, a controlled reduction of the total debt has been rising since ‘70s but the huge jump was seen in 2001 when Keynes’ theory about spending government’s way out of a crisis became fashionable all over the world. No one had enough money in their budgets to do that resulting in an orgy of debt.

Easily available credit and low interest rates made authorities, corporations and consumers borrow faster than the economies grew. Finally, we arrived at the point where the total debt (public, corporate and consumer) equals 245% of GDP. It is an absolute record. On top of that it was partially the debt itself that made it possible for economies to grow in the last 15 years.

Today our economies exhausted this avenue where markets grow with the simple application of additional debt. Credit does not generate economic growth anymore as the scale of indebtedness and servicing costs outweigh any marginal expansion.

Institutions that control monetary system understand the above and now the focus is on the inevitable – debt reduction.

There are two ways to reduce debt:

a) Direct bankruptcy (very unpopular as rioting people are hard to control).

b) Inflationary escape (much more destructive solution for the economy, lengthy in time. Preferred due to the fact that the majority of population do not understand what is happening and who is responsible for that).

Everything points to the second solution being utilised soon on a massive scale. Central banks all over the world lowered their interest rates to zero. The EBC is printing more than ever and rate hike in the US was a just one-time event and chances of returning to both ZIRP and QE are rising.

@ J Siefert

From what I've heard, piano wire worked well but took longer.

Even if it didn't work, one end could be put around the banksters neck and the other end thrown over a power line with results being delivered at light speed (- resistance).

I think that would do just fine.

why no hyperinflation?

because we have a system based economy, not a fiat currency based economy.

in the current global economy the charts set the values for wheat and corn and oil and etc and etc...

back in the day, fiat currencies and actual exchanges set the values for all of life's stuff. the value of wheat was determined by how much of the currency it was exchanging for.

today the value of wheat is determined by a chart. farmer Brown takes a load of wheat down to the elevator and both he and the gentleman running the elevator stare blankly at the wheat chart price to determine the value of farmer Brown's wheat.

there were no system charts back in the day, so the fiat currencies hyperinflated.

fiat monetary system's do not hyperinflate, they end when the true monetary nature of their foundations are discovered. i would tell you that this discovery will be within the charts component of the system. And of all the charts in that house of cards i would tell you that the silver chart will die first and take down the rest.

but, speculative digressions aside... we're not going to see $10,000.00 loaves of bread because we have a fiat monetary system based global economy. and ain't she somethin'?
