Discussing De-Dollarization with Da Jackass


A perceived acceleration toward the end of US dollar hegemony has been a hot topic here at TFMR this week. Thus, we thought it should be the primary topic for our holiday weekend Jim Willie discussion, too.

There's no easy way to summarize this conversation with bullet points. Instead, just notice that we began the call by discussing de-dollarization and then just let it flow from there.

I think you'll find this interesting and informative. Thanks again to The Jackass for so freely sharing his time with us!

Enjoy the long weekend -- Go Ducks!

Renminbi and dollars

Just watch.... if the trade war heats up between China and the USA, China will restrict the amount of US treasuries ($) they'll accept in trade for Chinese goods. Over a certain amount, purchases will need to be in Renminbi sourced from the world market, which means we (US distributors) will be trading $ to buy Renminbi from everywhere except China.

I know I'm repeating myself here but really, who's listening? I think we'll see it and see it soon.

ps. What would you trade for a US$ in that kind of scenario? Hyper-inflation may still be possible. ooo

Elephant in the room

Well now that we know Canary isn't SS121 (haha), maybe it's a good time to deal with the elephant in the room - GoldenTurtle. I've been thinking someone else would mention it - Don't you all remember a year or two ago when GoldenTurtle was here and said lots of interesting (crazy) things and none of us took him seriously? And remember what he was most excited about? Yes - the Yuan to Gold chart!

Just thought he deserves an honourable mention. If you're still here GoldenTurtle, je me souviens!

Bitcoin Black Updated Info

Once coins are given to 1 million people the free coin airdrop is over.

Bitcoin will eventually be replaced by a black symbol Bitcoin?

Q & A Bitcoin Black...

Several folks have asked when the free coins will be sent.

1. Do you have a ball park date?

2. How long will it take to get a wallet up?


Answer -

Late September for Beta testers.

Airdrop can stretch out until late October.

Android and ios applications projected November.

Ball park dates. But confidant it will be like this.

Question - That's interesting, their roadmap said the free distribution would happen before the ICO.

Answer... Airdrop to 1 million people and then ICO begins.

ICO funds will go directly to community based foundations and teams.

Pre sale and ICO are different.


90-99.9% of all the Bitcoin is owned by 1% of all the users.


Anyone who signs up for the coin airdrop will receive 3600 Free coins guaranteed ($36 value).

Bitcoin Black free coin sign up...scroll to page bottom, enter email, check I am not a robot and select submit ... https://bitcoin.black/#a_aid=5b7f2d29ef46a

Site will acknowledge you are registered for airdrop.

Does Willie Still Paint the Communist Chinese. . .

as the ‘white hats’ who will save the world from the Rockefeller/Rothschild globalists ? I haven’t listened to him in some while & don’t know his current take on things. - - IMO China appears to be the ideal model of a technocratic dictatorship (monopoly of everything) that got David Rockefeller all excited. They even have a guy in charge who is ‘Ruler for Life’. And they are setting up a vast system for ranking every Chinese citizen according to ‘social credit score’. Welcome to the New World Order with China set up to take the leading role.

Will have to listen to the interview over the weekend-
