A2A with Rob Kirby


What great timing to have Rob Kirby back for an A2A webinar. Rob's vast experience provides a unique perspective on the failure of The Generally Accepted Narrative for 2017 as well as some wisdom on where we are headed from here.

Among the topics discussed today:

  • Rob's thoughts on how The Fed was able to institute ZIRP and why rates remain historically low.
  • Why the POSX is falling so rapidly in 2017.
  • What message could be gleaned from Terry Duffy's appearance on FBN two weeks ago.
  • Why Rob prefers physical gold and silver to owning the mining shares.
  • And much, much more!

This was an incredibly informative presentation and we should all be grateful that Rob so generously shared his time today. Please try to carve out some time to give this podcast a thorough listen.

Allot of assuming in your thinking in that post for someone that ends with wanting to stick to facts.

Thanks JQuest

...a little more tongue-in-cheek than frustrated......

...the currency reset appears to be in the hands of China and Russia I believe. If all the countries of the world are willing to take our vastly hyper inflated currency for trade settlements, the manipulation will go on until a failure to deliver occurs....or so it seems to me....

@ From one fuckhead to another

Do I sense a little frustration AIJ ?

We're all in this battle together, thanks you for your friendship !

I like you have lost to date some major bucks but waiting for PM vindication..

I hope I get it before I die

Honestly, when I first realized that I could protect my losses with cryptos a light came on in my head and I wanted to share with others, not boast. In fact recently someone posted a comment and stated that:

" I (AIJ) sure took a sliver like beating for just trying to help others". As I said, I am only trying to help as a brother in arms.

When the metals actually do start another bull market I will be very happy indeed. I just want to have all my metals when that happens.

AIJ - I've got no problem with that

It's a fair statement and RB did first raise the topic. My only issue is posting with boasting to induce others to join you (or just feel bad because they're not involved and in your opinion, missing the boat). I think my feelings are shared by many here.

You didn't hear me criticizing your move or laughing at you during the recent decline.

As Det. Friday once said, 'just the facts, mam'.

Normal Market ? Hell No !

We have a RIGHT ANGLE market anymore of

vertical smashes and horizontal caps...

The Fraud Continues....

I blame Robert LeRoy Parker and Harry Longabaugh...

for our sorrows. If they hadn't taken it upon themselves to rob banks and poor Mr. E. H. Harriman's trains the banks wouldn't be robbing us today.

Like Willy Sutton, who was pretty much a stand up robber... had a moral compass and was quite the character said, "he robbed banks, because that's where the money is." Well I believe the banks now rob us because... yeah you guessed it. We are the only ones left, that have any real money these days and they want it all for themselves.

To me, it looks like they will succeed too, so... I'm left to ponder where to invest what's left of my fiat. Maybe start applying what Greg Mannarino is doing since I sold everyone of my mining shares at 9:30 this morning except for enough to recoup something if the tide does come in. Anyway... sad day today. Sad for the good people here in Turdville. I think of what some have said in the past, like billhilly and think how he must be feeling right now.

Yes, I have the top crypto's but the banks own those too. They now own EVERYTHING and it's ALL controlled by the banks. I've watched the crypto's and they all move together, from green to red, with a few exceptions... so for me the banks have them well in hand. I hear "Banks are scared of crypto's." give me a break!

Apparently corruption knows no bounds... just really, really sad.

I guess it's time to go back to chores, running errands, enjoying and living what's left of my life.

Some might not recognize the names Robert Parker and Harry Longabaugh, sooo in the voice of Ms. Fellon... they are also known as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

From one fuckhead to another

The topic was Rob Kirby and HE mentioned the cryptos. So this was ON topic. If you cannot understand simple logic I cannot help you.

I have simply tried to help others see that there is a way to protect themselves from the constant manipulation that is going on.

I know I have helped some on this board who have listened, and they have thanked me.

I have lost multiple 6 digits in investing in the metals since 2012. In 2000-2011 I did great.

The cryptos have erased all those losses. I want to survive to battle another day.

So I decided not to be a victim anymore.

I still have all my physical metals and I remain wildly bullish on the Precious metals and will not sell. The metals are in a death grip and TPTB will not let go until something breaks ( failure to deliver )

In the meantime I choose to survive.

oh give me a break

I've tried to keep the discussion focused on the metals and miners for weeks now. I live and die pouring every ounce of my energy into keeping everyone up to date about all that is going on in the world. And yet, a few "knucklehead comments" on cryptos make you and your three hat-tippers ready to quit the site?

Ok, whatever. Obviously you can do whatever you'd like.
