Catching Up With Andrew Maguire


Earlier today, Andy and I finally got a chance to visit and get caught up. He's been traveling the world working tirelessly on our behalf and this was the first chance we've had to speak in weeks. After a tumultuous year in the metals, and with 2017 promising even greater volatility, what a great time to get Andy's thoughts on what to expect in the new year.

Andy hits multiple points during this call and addresses a wide range of issues including:

  • Chinese and Indian physical demand
  • The ongoing price manipulation lawsuits and additional legal action in 2017
  • Why mining CEOs have been reluctant to join the fight against The Banks
  • How the ABX is adapting to offer an alternative to producers
  • The possibility that Banks are using GLD gold to arbitrage the price difference vs Shanghai
  • And much, much more.

Please be sure to give this podcast a thorough listen and thanks again to Andy for all of his efforts to finally free the world of precious metals from the shackles of Bullion Bank price manipulation.

@gold slut: Darkest Yorkshire

Don't forget "where there's muck there's brass." Or is that gold. My grandfather, from West Yorkshire, always wore his gold chain with a gold-cased pocket watch on his waistcoat. Being born in 1886 he came from an era when gold sovereigns and sterling silver coins were used as currency, imagine that!

Well I need to start the oven in 10 minutes to get the turkey on the go for family, who'll be arriving later this afternoon.

So just let me wish one and all a very happy Christmas and peace to all.

I just have to ask, what is so special about 4th. Not meaning its a bad thing and not being disrespectful just curious as to why you value it so much. Is is a favourite number thing or some other significance?

The family all got 1 Oz rounds.

I have been giving away 1/10th , oz's AG for the holidays to co-workers, and friends. I keep four or five of them mixed in with my pocket change. When I pull out the handful, people notice two things. The sound, and the shiny. The smile when you give them the shine, is great. The puzzled visage, as they hear the coins ring against the other change, priceless.

Blessings to all fellow travelers

Thanks for being real, all. In the good and bad times I reflect on our common theme here, that being a search for truth and justice.

May you have a peace that passes all understanding as we celebrate, for many, our Savior and what He has done for us.

I value each person here, as we are all fearfully and wonderfully made.

Thanking God today for this fellowship of humanity. May we all walk worthy of those who have sacrificed all before us.

Peace out.

Let's get busy spreading the message of sound money in 2017. If you impact one person you have done your job. Sharing some 1 ounce silver rounds this time of year sends a message to those you love.

And to all…..

a very merry Christmas!

Back to the stone age.

Actually the most expensive and limited by far is another "currency" few know about.

There are only a dozen or so and their price is in the hundrends of thousands maybe millions.

We are talking about the very few recovered pieces of martian meteorites,pieces of Mars that fell onto Earth.

Only a small percentage has been found-mined.

I guess its the only potential "currency" that was minted on another planet.

Another plus..Mars has very favorable taxation rates .

Things you can see

The Earth sure "looks" flat.

Politicians smile at you, and kiss the babies...they must be nice people, right?

Boy, that GMO corn sure looks good,,,,yummy!

Anyhow, Merry Christmas everyone, and I mean EVERY one.

sincerely, Benque
