A2A with Chris Powell of GATA


Chris Powell and Bill Murphy formed the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee in 1998 and they've been stalwart allies in the fight against gold price suppression and manipulation ever since. What a pleasure it was today to get caught up with Chris and get his thoughts on the current state of the global market for gold.

As you listen, you'll quickly be reminded that Chris is still one of the most informed and well-spoken advocates for our cause. Over the course of this webinar, he addresses a number of current issues including:

  • the most important lesson he's learned in the 20 years he's followed the gold market
  • the strange occurrence of SecTreas Mnuchin visiting Ft Knox and the equally strange television interview of Terry Duffy, the CEO of the CME Group
  • whether the US government would financially benefit from revaluing the price of gold
  • how physical demand will paly a role in finally ending the tyranny of the central banks and bullion banks
  • and much, much more!

Please be sure to give this discussion a thorough listen as you are almost certainly going to learn a few things that you didn't previously know. And then, when you're finished, please click over to the GATA site and send them some financial support. Their efforts are tireless and we need to ensure that they remain on our side in this fight. https://www.gata.org/node/16

Optimism for Au & Ag

1. Mnuchin statement.


2. Hurricane Harvey and now possibly Irma (Lidia down south?) will raise some demand for commodities.

3. Nork issues.

4. Debt ceiling issue. Will they close .gov down or go to the printing press?

If it is a coup

If it is a coup I wonder if it is about the list of the sick pedos that is suppose to be soon released.

One of Dr Janda's guest from Sunday just heard about it, but did not want to say anymore other than it will be soon released.

That is the only way Trump comes out on top.

He would go down in history helping to eliminate human/child trafficking.

I think it must be a much larger problem than we know, as I know a small handful of women who had problems when they were young.

And to think the last she woman in the w house wanted to help the kids eat better.(somewhat noble but nothing compared to what should be done).

Whoever hit the metals last night stilll has a billion dollars, if they ever had anything more than a computer and an algo.

Aug 31, 2017 - 8:07pm

@Clarki Stomias...We may go higher tomorrow

The only thing that limits my optimism is the COT situation....Also, whoever hit metals last night must feel disappointed now.

WH Coup?

I'll believe it when I read 3 ZH separate articles with 3 different authors on the same day. And it's confirmed on Fox News

Copper Inventories Crash Most In History

"Buyers withdrew more copper from the London Metal Exchange’s global warehouse network on Wednesday than at any time since daily records began in 1996, extending a 19-day drop. "

Of course

if a real coup was on it would be as silent as possible. Why rile up the Sheeple with the negation of their "sacred" Presidential vote? It isn't necessary when they know that most people today, well meaning Constitutionalists that they may be, don't have the balls to risk it all to do what is necessary. And the other 90% haven't a clue. The velvet chains have been draped around our necks long enough that few would give life and wealth for the continuation of Constitutional Government. That would only happen when there's nothing left to lose.

Keep stacking, help your neighbor, and muddle on until it collapses, if that is to be.

White House Coup??

Angry Chef posted this story from Cernovich on the previous thread. I don't know the veracity of it either, but others are running with it. Could be an interesting long weekend.

@ Canary - Junior Miners Running back to tall grass

Oh I definitely had that thought before posting the puppy gif. And I fully expect an elephant gun tomorrow. But I thought, "You know what, we've had nothing to celebrate for almost a year and even though the COT is bad, we need to take cheer in one good day."

Good day today. And on a month end, no less.
