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.

The good news is most cartel participants are staring at losses.

Be of good cheer -- Happy New Year to all Turdites!

Missing by "an inch" at the goal line puts us in the same position as the Seattle Seahawks -- now they have to play an extra game, in a hostile stadium, and risk further injury.

I guess football and PM investing aren't so different after all . . . !

Best of everything to you and your wee doggies in the New Year. And...yes... crimnality always looks childish in retrospect. That’s a good way to describe corruption also.

New Year's Resolution

I'm buying me a new MAGA hat:

Make Ag Great Again

Happy New Year to All!

Dec 31, 2019 - 6:32pm

Manipulation of PMs and the Stock Market....

Looks more and more childish to me.

Happy New Year and the New Decade to all my friends here.

Happy New Year everyone!

In this link from yesterday, we discuss the Bank desire to cap price at $1520 and close the year below that level.
Today's close in the front month Feb20?
Happy New Year to all of the trolls and the pathetic, ridiculous Manipulation Deniers.https://t.co/WXVTRqtbv2 pic.twitter.com/pYKNwLe16y

I consider $1519.95 A WIN!

I consider $1519.95 A WIN! They had to push right up against the ending moments of the year to get gold below their target. That's their goal line stand and they denied us.

BUT... as I see it, we got the first down. We got within a nickel of their goal line. Now it's first and 2020 for a pithy nickel. The miners are telegraphing that 2020 will start with momentum. And, as there has been a certain tendency of the miners to turn their backs on the Comex Fraud Discovery in the past few weeks, I suspect that will continue into the new year.

Remember, we are at a record level of open interest. That means, the crooks had to 'invent' MASSIVE, yet non-existent, supply to hold back a MASSIVE real demand with their paper, while, all the time, the Physical has been accumulated in increasing tonnage. How many "pretend" tonnes have they had to 'invent' to meet this massive demand? And, in the end, that speaks volumes to the massive VOLUMES of said demand which, in the end, will not be denied.

This game is just reaching the point of real interest. Record open interest in a phony price-setting instrumentality -- that's what it is taking, in increasing amounts, to keep the lid on the demise of the paper house. And... the winds are rising...

BRING ON 2020!

P.S. Do note the Dow/S&P ended the year weakly... save for a last minute inflation inverse to the Comex pricing propagandists.

not again..

Dept of Offense wins as usual.... forever war secured. Somewhere, Israelis are dancing at our expense, again.

How is it we're in Iraq against their wishes (after what, 17 years? go figure), waging war across the region in the name of Freedom and Liberty, bombing civilians at will with no regrets, yet we're always the aggrieved party? Scramble the jets, get Maverick up there, one of our CIA "contractors" got killed. I'm so sick of this shit I could scream.

Whatever happened to the Democrat party being the adults in the room and protesting against war? Never hear their leadership bitching much about forever war or the funding of same, just cheerleading from their bought and paid for tools like CNN's Dickweed Zakharia, et al. Both Obama and Agent Orange ran on a "get us out of Shitholistan" platform and both have failed miserably. The Empire is running on fumes.

Apocalypse Now - Kilgore talks surfing and napalm

"some day this war's gonna end".... sez Colonel Kilgore, regretably
