Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and The Jackass


On Thursday, our pal Jim Willie stopped by for another holiday weekend podcast. Making it even more special was conducting this program in our A2A format where our Vault subscribers got to ask the majority of the questions. The result is 90 minutes of compelling audio that you're definitely going to want to hear.

This was, as usual, great fun and extremely informative. Jim must have answered about 20 questions from listeners, covering topics as diverse as:

  • The current status of DeutscheBank
  • The impact of Brexit on the euro and NATO
  • Turkey's "reconciliation" with Russia
  • The coming paradigm shift in the global monetary structure
  • Whether silver be included in any new, asset-backed global currency regime
  • His thoughts on a proper allocation between gold and silver
  • And much, much, much more.

It's going to be a long, 3-day weekend and US futures markets won't re-open until late Monday. So sit back, relax and enjoy yourself some Jackass. I promise you will not be disappointed.

The "supernote" I was reffering to is (from wikipedia):

A superdollar (also known as a superbill or supernote) is a very high quality counterfeit United States one hundred-dollar bill,[1] alleged by the U.S. Government to have been made by unknown organizations or governments.[2][3] In 2011 government sources stated that these "counterfeit bills were in worldwide circulation from the late 1980s until at least July 2000" in an extradition court case.[4] .

Being as $100 bills account for most the currency in circulation. (80%ish?)

Personally I think the CIA is involved in making them. US ATM's know them instantly. Activating that portion of the software outside the USA would probably sieze up the system, and create another dollar. The electronic dollars they already have under "control." It came to me when listening to Rob Kirby a while back, there already is a Shit Dollar.

So I was a little disapointed the JW didn't think as fraudlently I am, still a great interview!!

Clif again / July Wild Ride Ahead....

Ack! ALTA report for July promised a 'wild ride'! No mistake on that title, eh silvertards!?!

Jul 1, 2016 - 3:25pm

July 4th

No need to wait for the fireworks -- the sky is exploding with gold and silver right now!

Jul 1, 2016 - 3:29pm


Can we get through $20! Looks like it, definitely next week.

Have not been trading my uslv for several months as I felt this time is different. Traded uslv, dust and nugt during the first quarter with great results. I could always buy back as the price dropped. Now it seems like you might be left behind.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's off to the LCD we go . . .

Damn! Went down to my LCD to pick up some ASE's (to celebrate today's festivities) and missed the Top Ten. I guess phyzz trumps (no political connotation there!) a podcast . . .

Jul 1, 2016 - 4:07pm

My doggies are afraid of fireworks...and thunder

The ones on my computer screen (AU/AG) don't seem to bother them at all.

Jul 1, 2016 - 4:09pm

C'mon now.... there gonna be a pullback...what could you realistically expect from here? Shit, is it going to 22 first?....feels kinda like 2010....but the past beatdowns...over and over...I'm pushing through and adding right this second, but am I the only one that is slightly gun shy?

Here comes the last minute smack-down.

Jul 1, 2016 - 4:51pm

Now Here's A Sure Bet...

...and it dovetails nice with the Jackass

" Following the U.K. vote to leave the European Union, German regulatory filings show that Soros has bet over $100 million that the "Brexit" fallout will cross the channel to continental Europe and pummel the beleaguered German institution Deutsche Bank (NYSE:DB). "

Soros ought to have a pipeline of information that covers his risk here.

Starting Out as One of the Best 4th of Julys . . .

that I recall in some time. smiley

Real money used by a free people is flexing its muscles. The American founders had experienced 'funny money' with their overly printed Continentals, and they wanted no more of that.

Have a Great 4th of July everyone ! Please remember those who made it possible. They wanted a prosperous nation that defended personal Liberty and minded their own damned business. We got off that path more than a century ago - - but we can get back on it again.

Jul 1, 2016 - 5:04pm

Am I reading this wrong?

Did gold close out the week over $1340? I have a last at $1342.42 The HUI chart is truly a thing beauty. This alone should get some high level investor attention. It may not be clear sailing but there's no question the wind is at our back.

Special Music

For the 4th of July. I had forgotten about that song by Chicago.

What a superb day!!

just wait til we are going up by $20 a day!! :p

Jul 1, 2016 - 5:47pm

Thanks TF

You have been right about a lot,,,but, you have also maintained a positive attitude in the face of corruption and manipulation of the PMs. Positive from the perspective that criminality will eventually fail. I hope we are there...but, even if we are not there, you have been pretty well right in getting us here as winners. I would like to stay a winner...with the help of TF and the rest of Turdville. This 4th will be a little more relaxed than the last 15...until Tuesday.

Jul 1, 2016 - 5:53pm


Limit up.

Jul 1, 2016 - 5:58pm


If silver is making $20 a day moves, you should be focusing less on the amount of your stack, and more on the amount of your ammo . . .
