Thursday Conversation - Alasdair Macleod of GoldMoney

Please be sure to listen to this FREE, PUBLIC podcast.

Yes, I realize that it's Friday but this week's schedule is such that this podcast could not be posted on Thursday. Additionally, this discussion with Alasdair is so valuable that I wanted to post it at the top of the TFMR homepage and leave it there all weekend.

My purpose in reaching out to my old friend, Alasdair, was to discuss these two recent research pieces. As gold and silver are progressing higher in our 2010+9 scenario (https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/9151/2010-9), it's important to consider the potential ramifications of both:

Many thanks to Alasdair for the generous donation of his time. Please be sure to listen and give this podcast your thorough consideration.

My Shallow thought

With Epstein:

My gut says his ex cell mate was paid to commit end of life. To do this One or both of the guards are complicit. The I.T guy has to be complicit. It would make sense the warden was party as well. This is the simplest explanation.

Why the ex cell mate.

1. The original marks on Epsteins neck are from his cell mate. Billionaire sociopath didn't listen to the cell mate rules and got his ass handed to him. To cover, Epstein says suicidal which is somewhat true. Fucked with a human gorilla and put his life in jeopardy. This is the only explanation I can reason that gets him off suicide watch quickly. Ratted out his cell mate in a "safe space" with mental staff. This explains the move of the cell mate against the rules for a suicidal prisoner and the stoppage of suicidal status. Mr Tartaglione who see's himself as a righteous man who killed 4 bad men who wouldn't have seen justice otherwise. Just see's one more bad man who broke the cell mate rules and is just going to get off due to the money and connections he has. He's already going to be in for life. What are they going to do give him more life?? How is that a threat. All he needs is a good reason to finish the job. Someone made a offer he couldn't refuse. His DNA is already all over the cell so covered on all angles there. He just needs someone to either get him in and out of the cell or the keys. His mental makeup of getting the bad guy prevents him from trying to breakout. Your either Righteous or your not.

The pivot points are getting the ex cell mate in and out of the cell. That requires I.T. switching/messing up video and at least one guard to move prisoners around (keys are required). Considering that both guards are being uncooperative I'd say both were involved. At least I lean in that direction. This was not a three letter agency job. They would just poison his food and be done with it or give him lead poisoning in .44 cal or 9mm increments if that didn't work. Nope these are the actions of monied interests. I say this because someone made sure no protective detail, damaged video camera's, reduced staff/untrained, and blatant disregard of rules/safety. Just too many co-incidences. I've spent too many years working in the military to believe that crap.

Recently Ghislane Maxwell was supposedly seen at a burger joint. Unlikely as the picture has been photo shopped. Why is this important. Well it means someone is trying to prove life with a date. This means she's most likely dead. Why would she be dead. Someone is looking for the holder of the poison pill file he had set up for release on his death. She would be the first person to ask on who has the file. My guess someone asked too hard. At first I thought she was his handler but with this unprofessional pic I figure that's very unlikely. No three letter agency is going to pull that low assed crap.

60 to 90 days your going to see a data dump to wikileaks would be my guess or your going to see some unexplainably dead bankers/lawyers who tried to imitate the flying Walindas off of the highest buildings in their city.

Pet Rocks get no respect.

Imagine a pet rock that is classified on the same line item as foreign exchange currencies. Imagine a pet rock that is a Basel III Tier 1 asset as supreme collateral. Imagine a pet rock that pays no interest, and by paying no interest, that is a good thing! https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-08-13/greenspan-sees-no-barriers-to-prevent-negative-treasury-yields

Sprott Trusts

The tax advantages of the Sprott trust ETFs cannot be over emphisized. I was a little perturbed that SLV was tracking silver much better than PSLV, but if you run a chart, PSLV outperforms SLV and you get your metal too!

Patrick Henry

MR. PRESIDENT: No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do, opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending²if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

As for Hong Kong...

I am reminded of Patrick Henry:
