Special Podcast: Lutz, Rubino and TF

This public podcast is very helpful and informative. You should be sure to listen.


Last Thursday, Kerry Lutz invited John Rubino and I to discuss the important trends in the markets and the economy for 2019. It went quite well so I thought it deserved its own thread.

This thing clocks in at about 42 minutes but it's definitely worth your time. I'd never met John Rubino before and I was impressed with his knowledge and ability to explain things coherently. Over the course of this conversation, the three of us discuss:

  • the state of the US economy
  • Fed policy in 2019 and beyond
  • the fragility of the "stock market"
  • expectations for Comex gold and silver
  • quite a bit more, too

So, please try to carve out some time to give this a listen. You won't be disappointed.

We're so bullish on gold and silver...

While others...just the opposite.

My friend, long time gold investor is mostly out of PMs....She trusts Martin Armstrong more than anybody else...And he tells her that gold will retest $1,100 buy January 2020.

She waits ...and I'm fully invested.

She is worry about me....I'm worry about her.

The Jailbird

You should inform your friend that MA did 5-10 in federal prison as a result of being convicted of running a multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme.

Fully Invested

My problem is I have to sell something for my annual donation to the IRS and I like all my holdings.

If we are wrong, maybe we can take turns walking your doggies around the homeless shelter.

If the finacial crisis accelerates...

If things became really bad....Will the homeless shelters still be open?

Do they have homeless shelters in Venezuela?...Are they safer than living in a forest?...I just wonder.

If the President blocks food and medical supplies for his people, and displays indiscriminate indifference to the citizens, then no place is safe and no relief can be found.

It will probably force people to come to the US for help...like the suffering masses from other Latin American countries who live under the tyranny of authoritarian dictatorial leaderships who are indifferent to human life and prevent the smallest of efforts of their citizens to secure sustaining life for their families and themselves.

A quick and safe way to lower your sugar and triglycerides level

Drink one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar a day . Up to two tablespoons a day.

Apple cider vinegar breaks both of them....You will feel better within weeks...and younger.

canary good advice..apple cider vinegar

needs to have the 'mother' in it...Bragg's use to be the main

go to for that now in my area there are several others.

Another way to do the way thing is lemon juice in water.

Can start the day or have some before especially a big meal.

My ex mother in law was 7th Day Adventist which were/are known

for being vegetarians early on. She live independently well over 95

and always started her day with the cider or lemon juice.

Micro think

So I've been thinking my shallow thoughts. Contemplating what set of incidents would be needed to suspend elections in the near future. Looking around I found this as a possibility.

Oh-Oh! DFL, LFE Earthquakes at Yellowstone SuperVolcano, Volcanic Magma Recharge

If you go back to the 80's the general thought by geologists/vulcanologists was that consistent earthquakes above 2.4 to 2.6 would be a confirmed indication of an eruption. Over the last year this has occurred (steadily increasing). Next would be a hydrothermal explosion which is now being suggested. After that a cone build finally resulting in an eruption. What is not know is if it's a small or large eruption. Odds are a small eruption (relative).

If this happens, would this not allow the current government to implement all the things on their wish list? New currency, declare martial law, clean out the corruption in all branches. It would come as a shock would it not. It would also explain a lot of the behavior of various Government Dept's. Massive ammo purchases, emergency caskets stacking across the U.S., building of various emergency centers across the states, the handing out of military gear to police for the last 10 years. There are many other odd things that pointed to what we thought of a police state setup but could also be explained as a quiet buildup for a calamity event. hmm is there a difference? Intent only I suspect. Of course if a serious event was expected your government would tell you wouldn't they.

Of course precious metals purchasing value would spike to stupid levels. Fear around the world would definitely drive availability out of reach. Price... well we all know what happens then.
