For Auld Lang Jackass


Our old pal Jim Willie, The Golden Jackass, stops by today for his annual year-in-review and look ahead. If you can find some time over the holiday, you should be sure to have a listen.

As usual, Jim is full of valuable information. Over the course of this podcast, just a few of the topics discussed are:

  • the ongoing REPO/QE crisis
  • central bank and media tricks and semantics
  • the growing alliances against the US$
  • how gold will be central to the next monetary system
  • the US treasury bond as the new global contagion
  • and, as you might imagine, a whole lot more

Thanks again to Jim for his time and willingness to share his insights with all of us at TFMR. It is going to be a volatile and unpredictable 2020. Listen to this podcast and begin to mentally prepare for what's ahead.

You are very good w/ Jim Willie. Great conversation.

Thanks for adding the miners forum. Should be interesting.

Happy 2020.

Thank You Turd and Jim Willie

Great interview! All the best to Turdville in 2020! It's going to be a great year for gold and silver. I am with you Orange and call me a Q anon. Go Trump and ready to see the destruction of the Deep State!

Hope my mining shares can finally head up again like 2016. I want to buy more physical silver. I am curious if any of our Turdville folk have any insights or recent adventures regarding the purchase of physical in your local communities.

Craig or Administrator

When a new blog or podcast is posted could you put a one liner on the previous thread that shows the new thread has been started?

today's schedule

I will soon begin work on a new post. However, that will be all for today as I will be traveling back to Turdfork today and it will be way too late for a podcast by the time I'm home. Tomorrow, good Lord willing, will return to a normal schedule.

Jim comes on and visits about 4 times per year

We've had him on for years and will continue to do so. If you don't like him or his theories, then don't listen.

7:05 "could be the flouride, could be the vaccines..." What is this, the 1950s? Craig, I thought this was a serious site. JW is an anti-vaxxer. I can't recommend this to my family and friends. Honestly I don't know why anyone listens to JW.

COMEX OI goes infinite?

I doubt it --at some point, I wish I knew in advance, the system will recognize there is a problem.

In the meantime we have offsetting 2x and 3x long and inverse gold and silver etfs that need derivatives.

And the JNUG JDST NUGT and DUST funds which most of us like.

as silverseeker said, everything goes well until it does not. Kind of like a Yogism.

With China injecting more liquidity....Stocks love it, what is not a surprise.
