A2A with Bill Holter


What a perfect time for another visit with Bill Holter. There was a lot to discuss and the questions posed by the listeners made for a great conversation. With the current situation seeming rather tenuous, I strongly urge you to take the time to listen.

Among the topics covered over teh course of this call:

  • the situation at DeutscheBank and how this effects other banks and all global markets
  • the vote yesterday to override Obama's veto of the "9/11 Families" bill
  • Bill's personal opinion on the proper allocation of gold and silver
  • whether or not it's a good idea to continue to hold IRA accounts
  • why someone should hold their mining shares in certificate form
  • and a whole lot more

Again, this was anothetr A2A that deserves your time and attention. Please carve out some time over the next few days to give it a thorough listen

? Reversal of over-riding of JASTA veto ?

Have just heard mention (here on early morning BBC radio - UK) that there seems to be an "initiative" to reverse the House's and The Senates' decisions (on Wednesday) to over-ride Obummers' veto of JASTA.

Very concerning.

Can anyone here (CAL lawyer?) comment on this - more specifically, is it a credible threat or just bluster from the Rothschilds' mouthpiece (which is what the BBC is).

Thank you

Agreed. I would not rule out the use of a low yield nuke by 'terrorists' (real or otherwise) to increase the desirability of holding USDs. After all, they are crooks and one should expect them to play the part they know so well.

2016.09.28 Silver Cycle Model Chart

The silver cycle model correctly predicted a decrease in price right after the model run shown below, and here on the blog. Of interest, the model is not showing a phase shift in time, but a magnitude shift in price. If the model is correct, we should see a local minimum in price some time in the next month, followed by a rising price into 2017. Of course, remembering that all models are wrong, but some are useful.

Excellent piece by Alasdair Macleod


about the decline of America (and rise of China and Russia) ending thus:

These are the (USA) deep state’s likely options:

1. Accept reality and revise foreign strategy accordingly. Given the high level of groupthink and the remnants of cold war philosophy, it is difficult to envisage this being taken as an early option, if at all.

2. Prevent the Chinese from selling Treasuries by refusing bond transfers, and/or banning US banks from allowing currency transfers. The intention would be to hinder China’s plans to provide finance to commodity suppliers by transferring dollars and Treasury bonds to them, or simply selling down their holdings. The danger is this course of action will eliminate the dollar’s role as the world’s reserve currency for all foreign holders. The subsequent dollar crisis would likely escalate out of control.

3. Introduce exchange controls, restricting the return of offshore dollars in the belief that domestic purchasing power would be preserved. That would simply accelerate a collapse of the purchasing power of external dollars, increase the attractions of the yuan and gold as settlement currencies, and create shortages of imported raw materials for the US economy. The ghost of Smoot-Hawley would rattle its chains again.

4. Create more false flag operations, severe enough to encourage foreign speculators to maintain their dollar reserves.

The deep state is unlikely to accept that it’s Check Mate to China and Russia. Increasing desperation and the deep state’s groupthink place a high probability on the fourth option, another false flag operation, or a variant thereof. The world is at a critical juncture already with Syria, where the super-powers are at war through their proxies. Let’s just hope the fears expressed in this article over the senselessness of America’s future actions are overstated.

Thank you for the suggestion. May actually go that route. Seems to be the most fair way to get this resolved.

Put them on eBay and divide the proceeds four ways.

Largest possible number of viewers and bidders and cost not unlike any large auction house would get. Let the bidders do their own grading. Be sure to include a statement to the effect that the sale is part of a settlement of an estate.

Sincere condolences on the loss of your mother. Bless you for honoring her memory at her memorial. I lost my mother 15 years ago, at age 68, and my father 2 years ago. Like your mom, they had been stackers,of sorts, since 1980. Unfortunately for my siblings and me they mostly bought old numismatic and ungraded gold and silver coins at auctions. Since I live in the middle of nowhere Kansas, there is no place close to take them to establish their worth. Hard to evenly divide that among four siblings in a fair manner.

"I strongly suspect there will be an attempted military coup in such a scenario, and the outcome of that will determine everything."

IF there is a military coup it must be quick, selectively surgical and absolutely irreversible.

Translation :

Obama and any of his coconspirators that would accept being an interim president must be arrested, charged, convicted of treason and quickly executed by order of a military court. Once this has happened, it will then and only then, be absolutely irreversible. The options for 'dirty deals' is once and for all taken off the table in each individual's case as they are forever removed for their crimes against the people of the United States and their deeply deserved punishment will serve as a lasting reminder to those that would follow in their footsteps. High crimes against the people deserve high punishment that grantees the offending party will never be a threat to freedom again.

Re Newager23

Maybe we will both be right, and the 2016 election will be the last one, and the country will be under some form of martial law by inauguration day. A lot can happen between November and January. I expect that it will. Obama is not a lame duck.

I don't necessarily agree that the price of gold will explode in such a scenario, because if Obama does not leave office by January 20, it means that the criminals are still firmly in charge of the government, as well as everything else.

Therefore, they can price gold at whatever they wish, just like they do now.

That means that in dollar terms, it could be worthless. (At least in the USA).

Possession could easily be outlawed with an executive order. It's not like it hasn't been done before.

Fortunately, I don't think it can last. At least there will always be the black market.

I strongly suspect there will be an attempted military coup in such a scenario, and the outcome of that will determine everything.

I've been saying for years now that the price of gold and silver will not rise significantly until the criminals in charge have been removed. They are definitely engineering a systemic collapse, which is beginning to unfold now, and I fully expect the current administration to create as much chaos as is necessary to maintain their hold on power.

So, my wager most certainly is not a get rich quick scheme.

But when the smoke finally clears, I do believe that the stackers will be sitting pretty.

Just keep stacking.

How Can Da Douche Be Insolvent ????

You create money out of nothing. Trade it back and forth amongst each others. Claim one is worth "x" and the other "y"....based upon nothing. And then you collateralize it...and the beat goes on.

From Denver Dave's old site the "Golden Truth "....

"The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title."
