A2A with Andy Hoffman of Miles Franklin


All of the current global and market turbulence meant that it was an excellent time to check in again with the great Andy Hoffman of Miles Franklin. And Andy doesn't disappoint with 45 minutes of true, must listen audio.

First of all, I want to warn everyone that this is going to be one of those threads where we freely and openly discuss Bitcoin in the comments section. One of the reason I wanted to have Andy in for A2A is that he is an advocate for both BTC and gold...and he sees them as complimentary tools to end the reign of The Bankers and NOT as competition for each other.

So, in addition to a discussion of the value of cryptocurrencies in the fight against The Banks, Andy also addresses:

  • The recent PM flash crashes and how The Bankers are now brazenly rigging prices
  • How the market narrative (GAN2017) instantly changed the moment Trump was elected
  • His distrust of Trump, despite having voted for him
  • How declining silver miner production as a result of price manipulation is working against The Bankers
  • How and why the G-3 total market management system will eventually fail

Again, Andy has been a stalwart friend and ally in the fight against The Cartel for as long as I have known him. It was great to visit with him again and I'm confident you will gain a lot of perspective by listening to this podcast.

Trump Is The Answer

I favored Mario Rubio and Scott Walker. Had they been elected the Media would have chewed them up and spit them out.

Trump can stand up against their lies and distortions.

His Cabinet is the best in living memory. 850 or more regulations have been repealed that were killing business, thousands more to go. Under Obama, 30 regulations were written EVERY day. (Are you kidding me?)

So he says something every now and then that he shouldn't. Don't we all do that?

If the slow as molasses Congress pass any kind of tax break and 'Joe the Plumber' gets a refund next April, the Dems will lose more seats.

What Went Wrong?

This is information worth considering.


We all need to understand the bigger picture--the macro if you will.

Catherine Austin Fitts at Solari.com and Chris Martinson at Peak Prosperity.com have it dialed in.

Time is the one commodity that is precious and is wasted. The two sites above and TFMR save us time by helping us understand the Macro.

Breakthrough device heals organs with a single touch

Posted by TW on August 08, 2017

Researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Ohio State's College of Engineering have developed a new technology, Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT), that can generate any cell type of interest for treatment within the patient's own body. This technology may be used to repair injured tissue or restore the function of aging tissue, including organs, blood vessels and nerve cells.

"By using our novel nanochip technology, injured or compromised organs can be replaced. We have shown that skin is a fertile land where we can grow the elements of any organ that is declining," said Dr. Chandan Sen, director of Ohio State's Center for Regenerative Medicine & Cell Based Therapies, who co-led the study with L. James Lee, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering with Ohio State's College of Engineering in collaboration with Ohio State's Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center.

Researchers studied mice and pigs in these experiments. In the study, researchers were able to reprogram skin cells to become vascular cells in badly injured legs that lacked blood flow. Within one week, active blood vessels appeared in the injured leg, and by the second week, the leg was saved. In lab tests, this technology was also shown to reprogram skin cells in the live body into nerve cells that were injected into brain-injured mice to help them recover from stroke.

"This is difficult to imagine, but it is achievable, successfully working about 98 percent of the time. With this technology, we can convert skin cells into elements of any organ with just one touch. This process only takes less than a second and is non-invasive, and then you're off. The chip does not stay with you, and the reprogramming of the cell starts. Our technology keeps the cells in the body under immune surveillance, so immune suppression is not necessary," said Sen, who also is executive director of Ohio State's Comprehensive Wound Center.

Algos went to sleep?

USD/JPY and POSX falling down steady and bonds have a bid but it looks like gold and silver was frozen at 11:30 am. What is cooking here?

If it's Thursday it must a Red Ass day for me

Taking queues from the last two TFRM articles, my thoughts, plus the present comments from our brain trusts (you know who you are), a little light went on, like the one in your fridge.
It's unconventionally conventional wisdom of the PM, Crypto and prepper world that we're in a cold war. It's a war for our minds and money. It's one that could turn kinetic in a nano second.

I don't care about the personal habits of the TFMR regulars; if you smoke, drink or consume pot, eat healthy or not, drive with your seatbelts on or off.

What I do know is that all of us are on journeys of discovery; self discovery or discovery of that external world which is reflection of our own perceptions; seeking understanding and awareness in a world filled with vast oceans of black hole bullshit that act like new era La Brea tar pits ensnaring us.
What I see is the relentless advance of cashless countries like our new friend from Sweden who shared yesterday that his country is beset by cashlessness and muslims. I'm not sure which will be more damaging to the country. But the world wide assault against cash which forced us accept DIGIFIAT as the only acceptable means of commerce chaps my ass. The Black Hole Bull Shit paradigm that surrounds us to encroaching on our privacy and ability to think straight; one of the tactics that costs the least and gets the best result without collateral damage.

As Andy Hoffman notes, Bitcoin and Bullion are natural allies and complimentary weapon platforms (my edit) to wage assymetrical warfare against those who decided decades ago that we freer thinking organics are perceived as enemies of the state.

One thing that's vital to engage in these battles is subject ourselves to relentless and non-stop self discovery and personal change. As the world changes we MUST change with it.

I hate hate hate change and yet have forced myself down the rabbit hole, scooping handfuls of red pills to go cold turkey against my formerly fucked up thought processes. It's uncomfortable as a muther humper to adopt real change and engage in a process of transformation. But transform we must or an alternative transformation will be thrust on us with a vengence. That will be far more painful that a self induced change.

What we must recognize and acknowledge is that we have few allies. Everywhere we turn we seek knowledge we see non-transparency. It's so obvious that there is so little transparency that it's a shock just to come to the realization that we are lied to, deceived and bullshitted every hour of the day. Breaking our thought process that when someone or some entity is hiding something from us they are trying to protect us.

Bullshit!!! When banks, government and people cloak themselves with a veil of opacity they do us real harm, removing from our sight the vital knowledge we need to just get by, protect our little bit of wealth and security in an increasingly unsecure world.

Here is a partial list of Grand Meisters of the BULLSHIT BLACK HOLES. It's easy to see when someone is BS'ing you. They refuse to allow an audit of their BS or vault or books or statistics

US Government Uber BSBH

USG budget BSBHusing our money

The Federal Reserve Bank BSBH It's name alone pegs the BS-ometer

Central banks See above

TBTF Banks Multi dimensional BSBH

Fort Knox A BSBH Tesseract


Blockchain Maybe BSBH or just beyond my limited brainpower to assess .

Whether this list hits the high marks or not is moot What we see when an opaque informational blackhole shows up, tells it's raining while they piss down our neck from the 10th story, we are simply dealing with whores

I don't care if you like crypto currencies, mining stocks, precious metals or anthing else that turns a profit, if it floats your boat then paddle like your life depends on it.

PS I sold some TZA, bought more NOVO, now holding 5,400 shares of that miner.. My shares of BITCF are up 100% and a keeper. GBTC was sold a few days ago for a 40% net. Nice turns all.

UVXY was up 26.7 %

From 32.30 to 41.01. Time for VIX to wake up., so I can sell that toxic thing.
