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His Cabinet is the best in living memory. 850 or more regulations have been repealed that were killing business, thousands more to go.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.

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?

Aug 10, 2017 - 4:16pm

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.

Launching pad keeps moving up

Not for missiles but for AM-Bullioncoin. Cmon Andy don't do a Bo Polny and give us something we can really cheer about in the PM space.

Aug 10, 2017 - 4:32pm

UVXY was up 26.7 %

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

And this ZH summary


USDJPY at lows of the day.

Updated charts in a few minutes.

Aug 10, 2017 - 5:08pm

First of all

This chart from yesterday seems to be working out pretty well...

Aug 10, 2017 - 5:11pm

Let's start with the breakdown in bond yields

Below the lows from a few weeks ago. Watch to see if they close below these lines tomorrow.

Aug 10, 2017 - 5:17pm

And if the USDJPY is headed toward 108...

...how high might CDG head in the short-term? Regardless of nuclear war...

Well, this chart sure looks like at least $1305:

But we've spent the last month calling for a new 2017 high before the next pullback. How far? Well, again, that depends upon the USDJPY. Something near 108 would likely mean a trip toward this red line and long-time resistance near $1320:

Aug 10, 2017 - 5:17pm

Now check the all-important USDJPY

REALLY needs a bounce tomorrow. Maybe a hot CPI and/or a cooling of war rhetoric? Either way, any weekly close below 110 and it's very likely looking at a test of the 2017 lows down near 108.

Andy Hoffman out of date after Lynette Zang Interview SGT Report

Excellent interview with Andy Hoffman but the Bitcoin info out of date with the SGT Report Interview.


Aug 10, 2017 - 5:27pm

What about Comex Digital Silver?

Well, we gave you this chart two weeks ago and it still has value today...though, last Friday gave us cause for concern.

Regardless of the somewhat disappointing pause near the 200-day today, IF CDG is indeed headed to $1320, then CDS should have no problem moving forward and squeezing a few more Spec shorts.

Aug 10, 2017 - 5:31pm

And lastly, the HUI

It's back above the 200-day and, IF WE CAN CLOSE TOMORROW ABOVE LAST WEEK'S INTRAWEEK HIGH OF 198.69, we should be able to give the all clear for a rally of at least 10% and toward 220.

Aug 10, 2017 - 5:34pm

One more thing. How about this?

And perhaps consider this in the context of Terry Duffy's remarks a few weeks ago...


Aug 10, 2017 - 5:53pm

Lynette Zang?

Until a month or so ago, I had never heard of her, now she is being interviewed by everyone and is posting videos on youtube. Is she an overnite success story or am I missing something here?

Aug 10, 2017 - 5:56pm

Trump actually said at his

Trump actually said at his last rally that the employment numbers were up, but added the caveat that he knows people who fell off the unemployment roles aren't included so the number isn't as good as it looks. When has a President ever said something like that before? He knows what's going on and he's not happy about it.

RE: Hoffman out of date

So wrong in so many respects and actually laughable. The comments below the video expresses some of this innaccuracy.....

" The video was full of xxit right off the bat. You have to get people to use it in spite of alternatives that governments can't control and don't inflate. Making an easier to use government run currency won't suddenly allow them to stop you from using alternatives. Tangible things can only be ID'ed and have there ID's on a blockchain so governments can make transfer of those ID's associated with ownership of that property(as evidence of ownership) because that way they can secure ownership in a transparent way that can't be denied and that's what is meant by digitization of assets. but that can't make the system they'd be trying to implement work because they can't stop the movement of cryptocurrencies across borders by having their own digital currency. Your acting like an Alex Jones wannabe you sack of xxit. https://youtu.be/sG3Ju8AhCKM?t=1262 Bitcoin did not double in supply it split into two separate cryptocurrencies with values that fluctuate against eachother. The way things happened is that anyone who had bitcoin was able to get an equal supply of bitcoincash(a separate cryptocurrency) they are not equivalent to eachother so no new bitcoin have been created. "

And then there is this comment,

"jsnip48 hours ago (edited)

At 18:00 that "rule" is the same rule every other ICO on the face of the earth has put in place. They do not want to deal with the SEC and it's possible regulation on these coins. Everything she talks about here is a MASSIVE NOTHING-BURGER. I'm already getting Karen Hudes flashbacks. Notice how Karen disappeared after people a lot smarter than her shot down her outrageous claims. I hate to say this but Lynette is not even kind of qualified to speak on this and it shows by what she is presenting (no disrespect indended). You can tell as soon as she started talking about Americans not being able to invest just before 18:00. If you don't know what you are talking about.....DON'T TALK!! I'm getting flooded with emails over this and I can't find even a single thing she said to be worrying as it does not exist. This is an ICO that wants to do a lot of things. The website was created a couple months ago for Christ's sake. Everyone think "the club" would put up a website on this and allow China to push it just a couple months ago? Her answers are causing fear for all the wrong reasons. China and other non-western countries have already created their version of SWIFT so that they can do trade and transactions without having to deal with the US putting sanctions or confiscating one of their trade partner's money."

Aug 10, 2017 - 6:23pm

Dawg - I posted the same question the other day

I had the same thought as Snip....Karen Hudes rides again. People can feel free to listen, but either way you know that Bitcoin is going a lot higher and is a way to secure your family's future along with G&S and some shares. By the way, who do you think has more gold than anyone else? It's the banksters themselves - I would say they would sooner want a new gold standard than let competing cryptos run wild. Just saying.

Brought to you by the ever benevolent NSA. Who always spurn the Globalists and have your best interests at heart. Because they know which side there bread is buttered.

Use the crypto's for trading and buying tangibles. Because we know the NSA only cares for the people.

Craig - let's let the Don and Doughboy bare knuckle to settle

this feud. My guess is both will be out of breath and laughing after one round together. I am beyond sick and tired of these stupid verbal bombs they keep sending, but I guess it beats the real thing.

By the way, your thoughts on the Pakistan angle were in line with mine - a much more unstable regime with ties to radical terrorists. Which is a bigger risk?

I prefer a peace summit where the U.S., China, S. Korea and Russia offer a joint venture Marshall Plan for North Korea to enter the modern age and eventually become reunited with South Korea. Doughboy can be anointed emperor in perpetuity with permanent exempt status from prosecution for past crimes (similar to Japan post WWII). His family and the top generals will be allotted a part of the "equity" in this new venture and will be allowed to travel freely internationally. The remaining investing countries will be given equal equity interests in the development bank and will be granted same access to private company investments. The U.S. will scale down it's military presence as the unification proceeds to completion.

How about we build something for once instead of blowing it up and ruining the lives of MILLIONS?

Does that mean electricity is bad because bad people can abuse it?

Does that mean Cryptography is bad because bad people can abuse it?
