A2A with Dr. Dave Janda of Operation Freedom


Our old friend, Dr. Janda, stopped by today for an extraordinarily informative webinar. You should be certain to carve out some time to give this a thorough listen.

Usually, we lay out bullet points listing the various subjects discussed by the guest in these webinars. In this case, I really wouldn't even know where to begin. Just do your self a favor. Take some time and listen to the whole thing.

Thanks Craig!

Can you follow the logic of this because I can't

Trump is finally going to unveil is TRILLION dollar "stimulus plan".

This massive debt increase spikes bond yields (which makes sense) but, in turn, strengthens the dollar vs the yen (huh?).

With the USDJPY surging through 113, stocks rally and gold is shitcanned...al because the US will print another trillion and slide that much deeper into debt.

Can you follow -- no itthis total absurdity

At some point, with tax cuts straight ahead and Trump going full bore on his stimulus/infrastructure plan, whatever it is, we are going to make the transition from a cratering economy to one that is hitting on all cylu

Apologies for the computer

Apologies for the computer jump...

But it does seem like we may transition pretty rapidly to a let er rip economy with the Fed under enormous pressure not to raise rates too fast. Trump wants it all, tax cuts, spending, and an easy Fed. Copper has barely budged during recent days when the PMs have been getting pounded. If and when everything soon start to kick in, with velocity increasing, and the Fed continues, under pressure from Trump, to go slow, the PMs are gonna have a lot of catching up to do, strong dollar or not. Obviously, jmho.

Get it built before the paper burns. China did it. We can too. Use as many devaluing dollars as we can to convert to tangible assets that we can launch productive growth from again. Default. Do-over. He's good at BK. Creditors not so much.

My apologies, Marchas!

You are 4th by your own choosing, but 1st in the hearts of Turdville.

Here is a quote by Ted Butler from a recent Steve St. Angelo article on price suppression that speaks to your wisdom and patience.

"Whether to participate in a manipulated market is something everyone must decide. To me, the choice is easy. Virtually all price manipulations in history have been of the upside variety which caused prices to be higher than they should have been. Buying an aset priced artificially high is a surefire prescription for eventual financial loss. But because the manipulation in silver is of the rare downside variety, the price of silver is artificially low, thereby guaranteeing eventual profits for those taking advantage of the opportunity."

Steve St. Angelo goes on to say that, while he agrees with Ted Butler that the banks are controlling the silver price, the majority of manipulation is taking place by propping up the stocks, bonds & real estate values, estimated in 2015 by Savills World Research at 372 trillion -- and the Central Banks manipulation is focused on keeping these values from falling.

The coming surge in the silver price will be due to the disintegration of the global oil industry and the negative impact on the value of stocks, bonds and real estate, rather than the number of bullion banks silver short positions.

So -- Keep Stacking!

Those CME Bitcoin futures can't get up and running fast enough!!

Lemetropole Cafe...

The meteoric rise in Bitcoin is due to the fact there’s currently no viable method to short it into oblivion. That all changes Dec. 10, when the CME begins offering unlimited shorting against the cyber-nothingness. Here’s all you need to know about the brand new “investment” tool, per Reuter’s:


-Both Cboe’s and CME’s bitcoin futures contracts will be settled in U.S. dollars, allowing exposure to the bitcoin without actually having to hold any of the cryptocurrency.”

Hey, ain’t that great? Exposure without having to hold any of them shiny(?) cryptos. This will be a sight to behold once Bitcoin joins the ranks of silver investors who are also experiencing “exposure” to the product without having to “hold” any of it. In fact, we can now look forward to Bitcoin charts that will look just like THIS:

BYE-bye mania, hello unlimited short selling

Can’t wait to see how the arbs set up. Will BTC futures trade at an $8K discount to the physical, er, I mean, the cyber nothingness? Will Bitcoin crash 80% and then never rally more than 1% in a single day as they learn all about the virtues of “exposure”? Will Bitcoin option holders who buy $18K calls get screwed on op. ex. day? Will BTC futures allow for physical(?) delivery of Bitcoins? Let’s see them do Bitcoin EFP’s!

I am befuddled by the whole thing. All I know is that ALL futures markets heavily favor TPTB, which means they will ALWAYS be pro-bankster, and anti-anything which is a competitor.

Unlike Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates, you ALWAYS know what you’re getting with the cartel.

Dearest Turd,

I would highly recommend that you take the doctors advice, and get yourself some colloidal silver.

I've been making my own for years, and it keeps me and my family healthy.

I went back and looked, and found the recipe: An oldie but goodie, the Mr. Fix recipe: #12

Silver At Zero

The inflation adjusted value of silver is for all practical purposes $0. There is a Brontosaurus in the room and I can't believe no one sees it!

How much silver would you want to own at zero? Your biggest problem would be acquiring a warehouse large enough to hold it. There are those who presently own these warehouses, who have enormous stacks of depreciating cash, (ie Apple), and have a tremendous ongoing need for silver. Forget about the 800 billion cash that they could preserve by converting to silver.

I smell a really rank rat. Just what sort of strong arm tactics, or collusion, does it require, to prevent cashed up companies from buying all current stockpiles of silver as well as future production for several years out? All these cash heavy producers such as Apple, Samsung, solar panel manufacturers are simply stupid with no foresight? Apple alone could buy out 1 year of global silver production, 800,000,000 ozs x $15.75/oz = 12.6 Billion. 1.6% of Apple's 800 Billion cash horde!

Unbelievable! Where are the buyers at this level? Do these corporate geniuses suppose that silver will be cheaper soon? Maybe diesel and miners and Caterpillar equipment will be free?

There is something going on here that simply defies rational analysis or explanation. The gold and silver media are so beat down and used to the ongoing suppression that they no longer see the forest for the trees! No one is discussing the freaking magnitude of this distortion!

One ounce of silver will only buy 3 boxes of Corn Flakes or 5 loaves of bread? Anyone out there? Anyone?

Dec 7, 2017 - 5:58pm


"No one is discussing the freaking magnitude of this distortion!"

I'm following you right off the cliff! ;^)

It is a never ending criminal event supported by Presidents, AGs and everyone's legislator...year after year.

If we get $1 trillion of infrastructure spending

It'll give us maybe $50-100 billion in growth and $900 billion in wasted government spending, all of which will go to MIC, corrupt state politicians and local straphanger contractors who might actually build something.

This will be as useless as the $5 billion in CPFC (aka Faucanontas baby) fines that were transfered to Democratic NGOs and other bad actors to spend on radicalization of the street thugs and other stirrers of shit.

BTW Montana Mel and I spent around 2 hours catching up. In our conversation it dawned on me why I am not comfortable put funds into Bit Coin. It's like feeding meth to an recovering addict.Having chased unicorns for 40 decades, it's clear that once a recovering tulip bulb addict, always a tulip bulb addict. Silver and gold keep me sane (er) and stable.

Dec 7, 2017 - 6:31pm

The USD/JPY surging trhrough 113....

Because investors believe the U.S. economy will be booming next year (with the tax plan and infrastructure stimulus in place).

But that would indicate inflation, right?....and the specs are shorting silver now?

Bently..." Trump wants it all, tax cuts, spending, and an easy Fed"

Silver Users Assoc

Is part of the manipulation. Those who "go along" in the association are sure to get all they need for cheap, cheap, cheap. No need to upset the applecart, when the gravy is flowing just fine.

I believe the smash could

I believe the smash could continue, but the strength of the miners really surprises me. I remember noticing this at earlier bottoms, and I put forward the idea that most of the money is made by shorting or buying the mining stocks, while manipulating the actual silver price might cost money. This would mean the criminals are now covering these shorts, buying up all these stocks that our depressed companions are selling because of this continual, seemingly endless, manipulation. I remember being put in my place the last time I put forward this theory, and the miners could well crater further from here, but I wanted to put this out here for review...

I don't want to upset anyone or brag, but my portfolio is up big time, having increased my position in ggi, nvo and mux in the past few days. There is money to be made, even in this environment. Pick the right stocks (follow Mr. Sprott) and one can still prosper apparently, but I have to warn you you need to have a strong stomach to handle the volatility...

APMEX Accepting Bitcoin?

Not so much . . .

I attempted some purchases today at Apmex, paying with Bitcoin. You compose your order, and at the final screen (where you commit to the purchase), even though you choose "Bitcoin" for your payment method, you only see your order quoted in USD. I called their customer service line, and was told "we can't display the Bitcoin price, because the value is constantly changing" -- Duh! I believe the price of PMs are constantly changing, yet Apmex manages to lock down a price when you are buying gold or silver . . .

You have to go to Bitpay to complete the transaction (I assume sending BTC to Bitpay, who converts it to fiat, and then pays off Apmex). In any case, you are not paying [directly] with Bitcoin, and if the BTC price changes during the Apmex to Bitpay handoff, you may get a big surprise as to what your BTC final price is. If you cannot get a locked-in Bitcoin price, you are not purchasing with Bitcoin! Period.

Dec 7, 2017 - 7:26pm

Ultimately, Dennis Gartman goes to Zero

These people cannot recognize that out of the pandora's box of derivatives of money that final derivative is Bitcoin?

Dennis Gartman cracks me up.

@Rickshaw thanks for the report on Apmex. Getting rid of third-parties is one of the larger points to Bitcoin.

crossing the rubicon.....

Turd, I think you must be feeling the tectonic shift underway. It's okay if you feel the need

to rebrand under as TFRB. I think most here will understand! The pandora is out of the box, the

train has left the station and the writing is on the wall.

Gold and silver as a store of wealth is no more.

Almost as big a bummer as the silver price. A good night to turn in early & pull the comforter over my head with a cat on each side to keep me warm.
