Thursday Conversation - Rob Kirby

A discussion of negative rates, the banking sector and the precious metals.


The great Rob Kirby of Kirby Analytics is here for an insightful discussion that you don't want to miss.

Over the course of this call, Rob addresses several key points, including:

  • the madness of negative rates and why they're here to stay
  • the impact of negative rates on the banking sector
  • fraud within the accounting of the US government
  • the 2019 rally in the precious metals
  • why he prefers physical metal to the mining shares

Rob also mentions something called FASB Rule 56. You can learn more about that here: https://home.solari.com/fasab-statement-56-understanding-new-government-...

yeah... no timber

Yeah that's a better explanation than the media had, that's for sure.

Your structural steel video illustrates the point we’re making, if one takes the time to analyze...the steel loses SIDEWAYS strength WAY before it looses vertical strength, so it would have fallen SIDEWAYS instead of in its own footprint as the steel beams below would be compromised first. The beams above, not so much. The beams on the other side, not nearly. All this would cause a twisting in any fall which would NOT result in a “footprint” fall.

We Are So Far Out

Of order that up is down and down is temporary, and that’s “permanent.” Grateful for the perfectly clear big picture analysis Craig & Rob gave here.

If you can’t see that 911 has too many inconsistencies to count in the official “story” you shouldn’t be dressing yourself before going out in public.

Test for yourself if diesel (same as jet fuel but cheaper & without additives to prevent freezing at altitude) will melt a simple metal bucket and collapse it on its own footprint. Good luck even lighting it. You will only need a quart or less. Watch videos of controlled demolishions on youtube of a few buildings to have something to compare to the WTC. Similarities are strangely strong.... ..

But rest assured your government would never lie to you...

911 plane that hit the Pentagon

Jeez Jack, haven't you figured it out yet. The Hollywood produced Stargate, like many of their productions, is based on a secret reality. One of the Stargates is inside the Pentagon, was operational when the plane hit, and the plane went straight to the other side of our Universe.

Now of course there is no way they can release the true story, so we are left with an inadequate explanation.

= Chief liar in person. I can't stand listening to his/their theoretical BS anymore. The only science they know of is "Money printing". That's it. But that is no science, that is nothing else than producing counterfeit money. Anything else they do is speaking in confusing words to create the impression that the FED consists of particular smart people. It does not.

I was fully prepared to see gold hit 1450 today after CGP's remarks. The central banks must really be in a world of hurt to let the PMs rise like this. Then again, the day is not over.

Kind regards from sunny Austria.

Whatever predigested pablum Powell puked pre-market, precious popped pretty perky

Powell's perception of inflation involves peering through the plexiglass porthole in his perineum.

In other words, he has his head so far up his ass he can see the future coming and going via rectal remote viewing, like a alien able to view the future through a multi dimensional Einstein Rosen space time worm hole

Given all this is done in the Central Banker equivalent of Area 51, appropriately called Jackson's Hole, Andrew is not amused.
