Discussing De-Dollarization with Da Jackass

153

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!

Maybe. But at $13 handle you will have a hard time to buy physical.

Is this the long awaited real bottom, I mean finally?

"...an opportunity to purchase assets in this complex at prices you may not again see in your lifetime."

WHAT A JOKE

What about this??? Grandad Joe is gonna leave his silver stash to his only grand daughter. He dies today after a great speech advising on the purchasing power over the years of gold/silver. Now Silver is nearly 13 bucks. The criminals are in complete control. Keep cool and remain calm. I'm 48, this shit the criminals are putting on to you older guys should be sueable.

Collapse of the London Gold Pool 1968

https://www.nolanchart.com/article6535-rip-the-london-gold-pool-19611968...

I had to go back and read about the collapse of the London Gold Pool on March 17, 1968. We all know the Bretton Woods Agreement took place in 1944 as the baton was passed over to the USA dollar. The bankers were playing games selling off gold trying to keep a lid on the price of gold even in the 1950's. Looking back after the London Gold Pool collapse in 1968 it only took until 1971 for Nixon to close the gold window before America lost even more of its gold.

The manipulated price control NOW sure seems like a flashing red light that a big change is coming! I want to see prices stay low myself in the short term if the commercials will continue to get rid of their short positions. Q Anon is really stepping up the information "Great Awakening" and President Trump signed and released a few days ago that September 2018 is some sort of Emergency Preparedness Month. Be alert everyone! Lastly, the crypto infrastructure is growing faster on many levels including institutional money. The block chain revolution will change the world.

POTUS

Keep an eye on the continuing transfer of wealth, wealth confiscation, debt expansion, destruction of institutional control and continual remarks of Potus indicating his objective to establish a Fascist Dictatorship.

@happycamper515

Oh there definitely is a rhyme to this shit...it rhymes to the downside on a never ending tune. Logic is simple. Kick the metals in the nuts every day.
