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.

A Major Bank Admits QE4 Has Started, And That Stocks Are...

...Rising Because Of The Fed's Soaring Balance Sheet

No sh&% Sherlock. So REPO is just QE to infinity. Did you have to go to an elite school to figure this out or just eat a baby ?

And if all they do is open the not "QE", "REPO" window to save the sorry ass Gangster Banksters. Then WTH do we pay taxes again ?

The common man and woman.

I thought we were called the little people or deplorables.

At least I have developed somewhat. Call me a Q Anon.

Let the games begin.

Let's start 2020 with a few treasonous public hangings.

Thanks Craig and Jim!

Happy New Decade!


P.S. Where is Charlie?

your year-end monthly charts

As 2020 begins, you can plainly see the KEY inital levels to best. We'll be watching $1550 in CDG and $20 in CDS.

your POSX death cross

Next support is near 96 on a chart that looks pretty lousy...

Dec 31, 2019 - 1:43pm

in yesterday's post

We discussed the clear Bank intent to hold price at/below $1520 and $18. It obviously continued today.

The old trick is to run The Machines when no one is around....like late on a Friday or pre-holiday like today. Will CDG be maneuvered back under $1520 by the Globex close? And the price action in CDS today...with the POSX down 30¢...is utterly disgusting. What a sham/scam/fraud that "market" is!

That Jackass guy certainly does have a big noggin (there are going to be a lot of big noggins tomorrow morning as well, I'm sure). Now to listen.

Whenever I'm confused

I'll fall back on the musings of two great philosophers and scholars

Bodgisattva Yogi; Yogi Berra who is often cited as one of the greatest authors of wise saying from this century or last. Such as

'Predictions are hard, especially about the future, so when I came to a fork in the road I took it into the future'

Sheer genius

The other wise man is The Jackass

I need to give a good listen to this podcast. With what's going in the world we need some ideas of what the future holds for us or we're gonna be well and truly forked hard.

The Deep State nomenclatura, bankster apparachiks and the political hessian armada that's gots us by the bolsheviks, we gonna need some serious dialectics to get us the hellgelian outta here

Uno Dos, One Two Tres Quatros.

What's the frequency Kenneth? REM got it right.

Don't let Sam the Scam and the Pharaohs gitcha by the short n' curly wooly bully like they did with Dan Rather.

Happy Weird Year
