Give Thanks and Pass the Jackass

179

In a holiday tradition here at TFMR, our old pal Jim Willie returns today to discuss a wide range of issues with questions posed by listeners in our A2A webinar format.

Following an initial, 30-minute discussion of the significance of the recent events in Saudi Arabia, The Jackass spends nearly an hour fielding questions directly from the audience. Among the topics covered:

  • the growing economic conflict between the US and "the Eurasian Alliance"
  • the Swiss banks and shortages of allocated gold
  • reports of US intervention to allow ISIS terrorists to escape Raqqa
  • that "The Big Reset" has already begun, you likely just haven't noticed
  • the Saudi Aramco IPO and what it signifies
  • Jim's preferred asset allocation mix
  • and, in true Jackass free-form style, a whole lot more in between

This baby checks in at 85 minutes. At an average speed of 70 mph, that means you can cover nearly 100 miles of drive time while listening on your way to your in-laws! For everyone else, maybe break it up into segments so that you don't miss anything.

Enjoy,

TF

Tax Bill Farce

This David Stockman article came out about a week ago & I don't know if it was already linked here. But it is another argument that supports the idea that the GAN (generally accepted narrative) is built on sand - just like U.S. finances. The crooks are grabbing all they can while the grabbing is good. THIS is why having some physical PMs in the portfolio as insurance is a very good idea IMO. How long can this insanity go on ?

Jim Rickards

I know a lot of you have no respect for this guy. I know a lot of you have respect for this guy. To be honest, this whole world is fucking crazy at the moment. What's up is down and what's down is sideways. There is no one anywhere who can tell what happens next. I did like this moment shared on twitter by Rickards.

Jihk2431 - Nancy? Nice - you

Jihk2431 - Nancy?

This is meant to be a precious metals site - but once again it's becoming completely obsessed with bitcoin. It's Monday now - not the weekend.

BTC Rejoice

The fact that BTC is reaching $10,000 from less then $1000 at the beginning of the year, tells us all we need to know about fiat currency. It is over! Period, end of story!

Well, not quite the end, all that fiat will flood into monetary metals soon enough.

It’s the weekend-open topic

Two days a week of hearing how others are making decisions that are paying off is not going to kill you Nancy. Maybe you can reassess your viewpoints and join the party, but if not then fine. We’re all here trying to help each other get through this shit. BTC to $10K. It will be in six figures within a year, but maybe sooner.
