A2A with Dimitri Speck


A tremendously informative webinar today with gold analyst and author, Dimitri Speck. You should be sure to give it a listen.

Among the topics addressed:

  • Dimitri recalls the period of 2001-2008, where the price of gold rose even while interest rates also moved higher
  • The current state of the global market for physical gold
  • Dimitri's thoughts on the impact of Shanghai Gold Exchange
  • The state of the European Union and what this implies for the euro, interest rates and gold
  • How the mining shares may perform in the months ahead

Again, this was a very interesting webinar and I encourage you to give this audio your time and attention.

Hi Dan

These cancer deaths sure are getting frustrating, and so few willing to fight. Your story puts a little more perspective on the battle you waged here to get everyone to see what is right in front of their eyes.

I remember way, way back, when my friend and banker got me to read The Creature from Jekyll Island and Empire of Debt. He told me that when I was able to see what is really going on with the money, it would be so in my face that everything would start to piss me off.

I could make the same argument with food and allopathic medicine. When you really peel back the onion, it is so in your face just how many ways we are being poisoned and killed off. Everyone should take a look around at just how many people have cancer and auto immune disorders.

We have all been programmed to believe that the solution to a medical problem is to pay big money to get poisoned, be it chemo or some Big Pharma pill loaded with neuro toxins. Vaccines with mercury and peanut oil as adjudivants. I can think of no situation where it makes sense to be poisoned in the the name of healthcare.

You are a good soldier in the fight for health Safety Dan. I know I have told you this before, but it can't be said enough. They are not going to stop rigging the markets, just like they are not going to stop poisoning us, until we all stand up and hang them from lamp posts.

I am so sorry that you had to experience so much personal loss knowing what you know. That would kick my ass too and it has. Time to pick yourself up and get back to work. It is great to see you back here.

Thank You Safety Dan

You came back at the right moment in time and picked me up without realizing it. I am deeply sad that you have lost your mum and siblings especially your mum on your birthday but if it is worth anything the little problem that I had just flew out the window after seeing your words. God works in mysterious ways. There are friends that will always have hanging out here and I'm one of them.

So happy to see you back, I for one missed you my friend. God Bless

Safety Dan

It is so good to have you comment. We have missed you around here my friend.

I am sorry for your loss and with your holistic knowledge it has to be difficult to deal with. Quiet time is good for a while, just know your input and wisdom is always welcome here.

Regarding Ethereum...

This may be a reason for the sudden spike in price:


To me that is not a good sign due to some of the corrupt players latching onto this blockchain platform.

After my first 2 hours researching, I am havingdifficulty understanding it.

Basically from what I am grasping, Bitcoin is specifically a cryptocurrency. That blockchain technology is limited in scope to that purpose only.

Ethereum is a blockchain platform that allows essentially limitless applications using blockchain encrypted, counter-party risk free technology. Buying an ETH token allows you to 'invest'/buy ownership into the various developments out of the Etherium platform. It is not a classic 'currency'.

An example: using the Ethereum platform, you could develop your own crypto currency such as bitcoin. There in essence could be many different crypto currencies as long as there is enough interest/investment (via ETH tokens????).

Please let me know if I am way off course here......

Ultimately, this shit is way over my head and I want to snuggle into my precious metal cocoon and stay there until my children's children can figure this out.

Some of us (myself included) have been trying to come with ...

an explanation for miners diverging from metals lately....Now we know.....Somebody kept on hitting them over and over,...until our metals gave up. Dumping contracts was the final push.

Maybe there was a different reason for that...but I doubt it...And I'm convinced that we're dealing with much more sinister caliber of people, that the opportunistic, naive and mouthy young traders, currently under investigation.


Safety Dan...I feel for you...We can not go back to anything...anything.

@Safety Dan

Losing my mom was the most deeply emotional moment of my life. Words cannot express such a poignant loss. I feel for you, my turdite brother. All best wishes. We live on, not only with our dear memories, but with the profound realization that their immediate presence lives on in every moment as part of us.

@ Safety Dan

Keep fighting the good fight.

May the God of all peace be with you during this time, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
