A2A with Bill Holter

121

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.

@barfly

Thanks for all your contributions and I think your decision to concentrate on other productive areas is a sound one. I am not sure that we can add as much to your life as you have contributed to ours. We will look forward to your return in the future and a summary of your accomplishments.

Again...thank you for your input and the massive amount of your personal time spent in making TF Metals a major site in the scheme of things.

Just for the record

at the state of the union, our president stated that " anybody saying the economy is declining is peddling fiction".

we have no growth and this is yet another error by Obama. I figure Jarrett & co are keeping the truth from him because thats the standard of this white house. Besides he will read whatever is in the teleprompter.

nobody taking him to task on that comment, which is expected considering healthcare quotes from him.

and this is yet another reason to own metals, the disintegration of ethics in our society. But you can keep you doctor, your insurance, your hospital and it will not cost you one thin dime.

He and Jarrett really think the entire-population is as gullible as those in south side chicago. No, they are rather gullible and apathetc.

Spot on Holter

Craig , this was by far one of the greatest Holter segments of recent. Great interview. Two points to comment on; I have always held a shred of disdain for Richards, and have always felt that he has placed silver in the back drawer to assist in holding it down. He's no better than a big bank banker lizard. Second item; geez guys sorry losing train of thought. Have another Organ Grinder from the Mankato micro brew and as Denver Dave said recently "stack with both hands". Jweb live long and prosper my Turdville compadres.

CME

lowered silver margins 8.8%

Is this good or bad?

In the past it was bad most of the time.

So Long, And Thanks For All The Hat Tips

I'm writing to let you all know that my subscription to Turdville is up on April 28, sometime in the evening. If you'd like to contact me for my personal e-mail, telephone #, or other stuff, feel free to write me. I like Turdville and a great many of you, and I think there are a number of you out there who like me. I cannot say for sure that I will never return and that this is the last you will ever see of me here, but it is for now.

I was going to do this sooner, but there has been quite a bit transpiring of late and I didn't want to interfere with the discussion by diverting attention to myself. I am saddened at the loss of Jim Comiskey and think we've lost a voice of sanity amid the chaos. His videos were one of the stops I always made and listened to whenever he put out a new one, and I'll miss them.

As I said, I like it here. That's why I have to leave. Turdville is an internet ghetto. Life here is pretty good in the midst of like minded and similarly gifted individuals. There are many of us that are around the same age and have similar circumstances and experiences. And it's good to make friends like that. But, this is the thing... The energy that I expend here could be spent elsewhere. Spending too much time here distracts from other goals, and spending time discussing things with people who see things the same way as you doesn't challenge you to grow. I have a homestead to work, a business to build and ideas for half a dozen others. The hard fact of the matter is that spending time here doesn't contribute to any of my other goals.

What's more, this internet ghetto, like many other internet ghettos, has been infested by those who (and you know who you are) propogate two overarching memes. Some do so purposefully and others are simply influenced. The first meme is fear, the second is cognitive dissonance. Both are tools of the propagandist and both are designed to prevent meaningful action on the part of the individual. What might this community of people accomplish if these notions weren't propogated toward us on a regular basis? I think it was Menkin who said that the aim of the collective is ultimately a conspiracy against superior men. I look around here and I see a lot of superior men.

Those men could change a lot more than they choose, other than simply depleteing the physical market of deliverable gold and silver in hopes of it one day breaking.

I wish the best to all of you. May you all live to see the benefit of your vision and reap the just rewards from stacking. I'm setting about a project of improving my life and building additional capital of various sorts so that I might better prepare for the inevitable.
