A2A with James Turk


Just a fabulous Q&A with Mr. Turk today where we discussed everything from global gold demand, to the use of EFPs on the Comex to cryptocurrencies. You should be sure to give it a listen.

Among the topics addressed over the course of this webinar:

  • Current global demand trends in both gold and silver
  • The recent surge in the use of EFPs for short-covering on Comex. (https://www.cmegroup.com/trading/equity-index/exchange-for-physical-efp-...)
  • How much gold is held in private hands around the world
  • James' view of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies
  • James' position on the mining shares
  • A discussion of the relative valuation of silver versus gold
  • And a whole lot more!

Again, please be sure to give this incredibly informative podcast a listen. You will no doubt find that it is time well spent.

You are either for, or against Christ. Yes, 2 kinds of people. No more, no less.

Your post is the biggest cop out imaginable. You started your post with an obviously unprovable assertion. Instead of manning up, you sneak in here like a coward, and mock me to hide the fact that your statement was utterly and completely ridiculous.

Get a shovel and keep digging.

Oh there are two types of people in the world, democrats and republicans.....

LOL. But go ahead and have fun saying I prove your obviously stupid and misguided premise. I hope it makes you feel better.

Your eschatology is horribly all wrong, but I tire of trying to fix the nonsense everyone believes, hears and keeps repeating...

for demonstrating my point so clearly AG!

Lemming, really????

"There are two types of people, those that believe in God and those that believe they are God."

Do you have any evidence to back up this statement? Because if not your whole post is based on a false premise. What a bunch of horseshit.

@Lemming Re: Two types of people

A thought provoking post, for sure. My view is much more simplistic. I tend to categorize people into two types as well, based on a ladder metaphor. For old time turdites, this might sound like a broken record, but here goes. There are people on a ladder, one type of person yanks on the person above and steps on the person below to get ahead, the other type of person gives the person above them a boost, and lends a hand to the person below, thereby helping everyone to get ahead.

My sense is that most turdites are of the latter type!

There Are Two Types of People..........

those that believe in God and those that believe they are God.

Concerning those that believe they are God; they make no further effort to study anything pertaining to who God is as in their view it is irrelevant. They prefer to remain ignorant of these particulars. If they were to discover that they are indeed not God, they believe it would complicate their lives dramatically. Those that have taken the time to discover Jesus know that the opposite is true.

I get extremely weary of the ignorant, who continually assert that Christians, Muslims and Vatican Catholics are monolithic. Nothing could be further from the truth.

As pertains to Muslims: The Allah of Mohammed is Satan for he is the lord of the world. (See Qur’an 1:1 when compared to the Bible, 2 Cor. 4:4.) Allah is also known as the best deceiver as we read in Qur’an 3:54 and 8:30. He also leads people astray as we read in Qur’an 35:8. He also desires to fill hell with people as we read in Qur’an 38:85, 11:119, and 32:13.

As pertains to Vatican Catholics and the Crusades which get blamed on Christian Protestants: The books of Daniel and Revelation describe the Antichrist as a man who appears as a lamb but has horns. He ordains (appoints) amongst his flock men and women who are unrepentant murderers, liars, fornicators, pedophiles and adulterers. Daniel says that the devil’s Antichrist shall speak “dark sentences” and shall worship a god his fathers knew not.

We now understand why Satan worship is so fervently and irreverently practiced in the very seat of Rome, inside the profane temple the popes built – the temple known as St. Peter’s Cathedral, which has the Egyptian sun god obelisk on display in its front courtyard. “Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred, three score and six (666) ~ Revelation 13:18. The Pope, his Vatican, and its hierarchy are preparing the way for the corrupt Beast.

Please understand that your ordinary lay Catholic has no idea what is happening at the Vatican and would not subscribe to it if they became aware.

Marchas is correct, they worship a different 'god'.

15kg of Ag

Someone posted 15kg of Ag per missile...not sure if that is accurate but let's do the math anyway.

WSJ says 59 missiles launched x 15kg x 32.15 oz/kg = 28,452 ozs of silver never to be recovered.

28,452 oz x $18.35 = $522,094.20 in Ag

Or 59x 15= 885kg

Since 1,000 kilos = 1 metric ton

Nearly 1 metric ton of Ag vanished yesterday.
