A2A with John Titus


John Titus is the publisher of the YouTube channel, "Best Evidence". His recent works have included extraordinary documentaries on subjects such as The Financial Crisis and the lack of criminal prosecutions in the years since. His latest production, "All The Plenary's Men" will be released on Friday.

Most readers of TFMR are familiar with John's work. His documentaries have covered...

John's new production deals with the corruptive power held by the Bank of International Settlements and its agents. Its title is "All The Plenary's Men" and, once it's released on Friday, it will be embedded below.

Ahead of the release, it was great to visit directly with John about his work and I think you'll find this to be a fascinating and thought-provoking podcast.

What If?

U.S. is welcome to join ‘symphony’ of the Belt and Road initiative.

China continues to welcome the U.S. to join the “symphony” of cooperation and common development with open arms. At a seminar by the Atlantic Council on April 24, AIIB President Jin Liqun said that America’s private sector is welcome to bid for its projects. On the same day at a forum on international finance and infrastructure cooperation in New York, Cui Tiankai, the Chinese ambassador to the U.S., invited Washington to join the Belt and Road initiative.

Now I finally understand the CFTC silver "investigation "

Thanks John Titus. Now I know why the CFTC spent five years claiming to be investigating silver manipulation only to end suddenly with the following lame statement, all while we watched it continue in real time, week after week:

Brief Thoughts on "All the Plenary's Men"


And enraging.

I am now persuaded that nothing short of revolution will prove sufficient to root out the criminal gangs who have assumed near-absolute sovereignty in what is now laughably referred to as "the land of the free."

And that's all I have to say about that.

EROI and Debts of Major Oil Companies

The energy issue is complicated as everyone has noted. As Steve has noted the EROI or energy return on investment is now around 5 barrels out of the ground for one barrel of oil invested. Steve has been reporting each quarter and sure enough the major oil companies are going deeper and deeper into debt. On average the major oil companies have about 4 billion in cash and about 40 billion in DEBT! I always wished I had bought EXXON when I was young but now they have to borrow money just to pay the dividend. That ship appears to be long gone despite shareholders oblivious for the most part.

About those RVs. Pure conjecture

I've been thinking of buying one for some time now. I view it as a nice mobility option. That's the first thought when I saw that article. RVs are fundamentally a mobile-shelter. In the USA we have a term "mobile-home" which are usually mounted on piers or on a foundation, and aren't very mobile at all.

But if you want to get out of "dodge", (which is in it's self a form of dodge.) yet you don't know where or when "dodge" is going to be, then an RV seems to be right for the move.

With housing at all time highs and no guarantees against a fall in prices or value, (some might argue that a fall in prices or value are guaranteed) then the RV might be a good last stop before homelessness.

The rise in rents for space making closets worthy to rent out for owners has reintroduced tiny space living. I have often read of stories about families of eleven living in 2 room cabins, so the tiny living of an RV is easy for two people.

If you are a home owner and you've been watching the news and know the realities of the employment market, then knowing that an underwater/default situation could rear it's ugly head at anytime. Then you might become an RV'er.(Dear god, shades of comedy theft there.)

I could start leasing out parking for two RVs, but I wouldn't want anyone living in them....no thanks. Before buying an RV I might suggest binge watching Desi and Lucy's movie; The Long, Long Trailer", Robin Williams; RV, and there other movies that I haven't seen.

I am prone to boating accidents so I would have to think quite awhile before buying another one and hauling it with an RV. The curmudgeon in me would be loath to give up the truck/tarp/tent model of life, but my body is voting for the RV.
