    Re: the survival of the euro;depending on the decisions made December 9, it looks like the euro will survive.

      Werner says:

      Regarding the fate of the euro I wrote on this blog earlier and I am saying it again:
      If you are waiting for the demise of the euro , be prepared for a long wait.

    Big Al says:

    Good Morning cfs and Werner,

    The demise of the euro is something that simply cannot happen.

    An event like that would take us from a tenuous situation to an absolutely abysmal situation.

    Those in power, some call them leaders and I call them loosers, simply cannot let that happen even though one could argue that it should so that effective changes could be made.

    Best to all,

    Big Al

    Big Al, I was quite impressed with your performance this week at the big show!

    And all of you people just have to listen and see this. Ann Barnhardt really tells it like it is. Unbelievably candid interview with a person in the know.



    Big Al, is there any way you can get this woman on your show?

    No. The 9th is a date with destiny.
    Depending on tying up fiscally, the union will change. And the stock markets will go up or down heavily, depending on the choices made by the bureaucrats.

    cecil Henry says:

    HI Al,

    I know you are a big supporter of Ron Paul (as I am), which is why I was wondering your reaction to the announcement that Ron Paul will not be allowed in the Jewish Republican Candidates debates this Wednesday Dec 7th because his views are ‘too extreme’ and outside the mainstream. (ie it is implied he’s not a serious candidate!!)

    I think this is atrocious censorship and completely anathema to democracy and freedom of speech and ideas.

    How blatant can this manipulation get?

    • On December 4, 2011 at 12:07 am,
      irishtony says:

      HELLO CECIL……….It would not have anything to do with the fact, that most of the top bankers are jewish, & therefore they control the FED, & MR PAUL wants to have a pop at them………The fed.

      • On December 4, 2011 at 4:38 am,
        Jerry (O^OTB) says:

        irish….some historical data for you……the jews were given that role in 1696 , to be bankers when Marco Polo came back from china with the first paper currencey, at that time , that job was to be considered the lowest of lows for a job…who could have figured that it would evolve to this….

        • On December 4, 2011 at 7:40 am,
          James B from Canada says:

          Money stolen or borrowed from Jews probably financed the Nina Pinta and Santa maria re: the 1492 expedition to steal land, gold and enslave natives.

          The Europeans did what they accuse Jews of doing to the “palestinians”.

          I forgive IrishTony for his tacit anti-semetism. If his cancer returns, he may end up surviving thanks to the skill of a Jewish doctor!

          I am in favor of Ron Paul at this debate. I would like him to air his views but I believe that him and Rand will follow the $audi money, if they have not already ( and I believe they have). They will need a lot of fiats to finance his campaign if selected.

          Both parties succumb to it; from Dhimmy Carter to Bush Jr. Pinky to pinky is the same as bowing to me.

          Ron Paul will bow for sure.They all do. Either in private or in public!

          Israel, I am sure, is making plans to de-couple itself from the US. Business with South America, China and India is growing in exponential factors.

          • On December 4, 2011 at 10:35 am,
            Jerry (O^OTB) says:

            the money to finance the 1492 trip of Columbus was loaned from the pope(italy) to
            the king fer and queen isabella of portugal…with the idea that any people were to be found on their voyage were to be catholic subjects of the pope and in return these subjects were to pay there 10% or more tithe (just going by memory)

          • On December 4, 2011 at 10:58 am,
            Jerry (O^OTB) says:

            then you can see cfs2000 input …from part of the Crusades,

          • On December 4, 2011 at 11:07 am,
            Jerry (O^OTB) says:

            my comments are historical….and I was trying to show how we got from 1697 to the present day situation…..”THE 400 YEAR CYCLE…..OF PAPER CURRENCY…”

          • On December 4, 2011 at 11:13 am,
            Jerry (O^OTB) says:

            James…..go read what a BANKERS JOB WAS IN 1697….and the reason why
            this job was given to the jews…..
            this is not a comment of any disrespect concerning jewish people….far from it
            as a christian….we respect that these are GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE

          • On December 4, 2011 at 4:57 pm,
            Matthew says:

            James B — In the 2008 election, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) supported Ron Paul. Aaron Zelman (JPFO) said: “ADL’s hypocrisy must be exposed for what it is. Encourage everyone you know to write to the ADL and ask about their repulsive double standard.”-end- I won’t go into the context from which this was taken, other than to say that it was in reference to the ADL’s stance on gun ownership. Mr. Zelman finished the piece with: “ADL, burn in Hell.”
            Ever heard of Jews Against Zionism (dot com)? Zionists, jewish or not, do not like Ron Paul. That’s a fact. Jews Not Zionists (dot org) says this on their homepage: “No one has had to create any antagonism between our Torah and Zionism because such antagonism exists by virtue of the essence of Judaism itself, which can never tolerate the heresy of Zionism.

            Zionism is wrong from the Torah viewpoint, not because many of its adherents are lax in practice or even anti-religious, but because its fundamental principle conflicts with the Torah.

            Unfortunately, due to many undesirable factors, the view of Torah-true Jewry has been concealed from the general public.”-end-
            Zionists put Obama in power; they remain his master. What you and cfs2000 think you see is an illusion. You can’t come to a chess game with a checkers mindset.

            HI James B,

            You and Cecil brought up a great point and I will discuss it with Jeff Deist this week.

          Thanks for the insight.

            Jerry (O^OTB) says:

            AL,,Thank you….how was your trip, hope you enjoyed the vineyard and fresh air.

    • On December 4, 2011 at 1:24 pm,
      John W. Robertson says:

      It’s extremely unfortunate when a group, of any size, dismisses a candidate based upon what they feel they want to hear. It’s that kind of thinking which got the United States (and many other countries) into their current mess. Fortunately, I don’t think the Jewish Republican Candidate debate will be a deciding forum. Some, in fact, might consider their political wants to be outside that of the mainstream.

      • On December 4, 2011 at 5:25 pm,
        Big Al says:

        Evening John W,

        I would agree with you completely.

        I still have to maintain that to exclude the Congressman is blatantly wrong.

        I also intend to pursue this tomorrow now that we are “back in the saddle”


        Big Al

      Big Al says:

      HI Henry,

      I just got back from taking a few days off and I was unaware of that.

      Total censorship and, you are correct, it is atrocious.

      Quite frankly, I am very surprised and certainly disappointed.

      Big Al

    cfs2000(David) says:

    You did not start your history lesson early enough. Who do you think financed the Crusades of Richard the Lionheart?

    • On December 4, 2011 at 7:42 am,
      James B from Canada says:

      Maybe Jews did finance it. They are not so stupid to go the pubs and spend their time there getting drunk. that is why they were hated and are today, merely tolerated.

      • On December 4, 2011 at 1:48 pm,
        irishtony says:

        JAMES…………….What is your problem, & what does the above mean……….. EXPLAIN.

        • On December 4, 2011 at 5:32 pm,
          Big Al says:

          Evening everyone,

          One thing that I have never noticed in our great forum (remember that it is yours) is that I have never seen any sign of prejudice.

          You, ladies and gentlemen, are way too smart for that crap!

          Mr. Irish I don’t think that James B meant anything slanderous by that remark. Remember, I am Russian and Russia, the Soviet Union or whatever you want to call it has probably the highest rate of alcoholism in the world. (With the possible exception of Salt Lake City, Utah! Remember, that is a joke!)

      they did not have paper currency at that time., except the chinese

      • On December 4, 2011 at 10:44 am,
        Jerry (O^OTB) says:

        I did not want to get to complicated on history…that seems to be boring for most people….that is why we have to keep repeating the same old problem…because man does not learn…..he is only caught up in the moment…

    • On December 4, 2011 at 2:02 pm,
      irishtony says:

      cfs………….i agree, we can go back 2000 years , & beyond on this.

      • On December 4, 2011 at 3:15 pm,
        cfs2000(David) says:

        I was only going back 1,000 years, but if you want to make it 2,000, then I’ll blame the Romans for conquering the Middle East and displacing the Jews in the first place. Maybe if they had not had their Ark of the Covenant, in solid gold, stolen from them, banksters today would be entirely different.

        • On December 4, 2011 at 3:23 pm,
          Jerry (O^OTB) says:

          I do not think it was stolen from them….where did you read that…

        • On December 4, 2011 at 3:41 pm,
          Jerry (O^OTB) says:


          it just so happened at that time in history…as earlier stated , that the first paper currency to be given to the western world was from china…brought back by Marco Polo
          and presented to the Pope…(you can read the rest by doing some research)
          At that time in history ,,a low profession was being a banker…and that job…wound up being taken over by the jewish people..THIS IS AND WAS THE ONLY POINT….
          To make anything more about this is really a waste of time….and I am sure
          we can all jump in and scramble this mess into any type of conversation and direction
          we would like to..,but, lets all take the high road and be done with this conversation.

          • On December 4, 2011 at 5:34 pm,
            Big Al says:

            But Jerry,

            You have to admit it was great dialog!

      Big Al says:

      HI cfs,

      All I can say about the Crusades, the Inquisition, etc. is great examples of man’s inhumanity to man and the danger of free will.

    Dirk B says:

    Mickey nailed it: “Embrace volatility… you take money from tax loss selling, from your bad decisions… you put in stink bids for fundamentally strong companies that will weather the storm, have plenty of cash, have good projects… and you buy those things when they’re beaten up…” Examples? Hecla at 99 cents, USA.V at 3 cents, EXK at 71 cents… and many more, all in Autumn 2008, all of them with strong fundamentals and great management… but how many of us bought right then at the bottomless depths of fear?

    • On December 4, 2011 at 4:57 pm,
      Bud Wood says:

      Yes, like I bought Enron when it seemed like it might not survive.

      • On December 5, 2011 at 1:51 pm,
        Dirk B says:

        I know what you mean, but there’s a big difference between a company that hides all of it’s actions and one with verifiable properties, mgmt, and cash.

  12. On December 4, 2011 at 9:39 am,
    Dirk B says:

    Dudley Baker’s insight about company insiders publicly owning their own stock is very helpful!

    • On December 4, 2011 at 5:36 pm,
      Big Al says:

      HI Dirk B,

      I can’t tell you how much I have learned from the Mick. (Pretty hard for me to call him “mercenary” when he is more honest than a lot of folks in our industry!)

      Big Al

  13. On December 4, 2011 at 4:45 pm,
    Bud Wood says:

    There are good reasons for the jewish community to try to ignore Ron Paul. First and foremost is that Dr. Paul doesn’t support bombing Iran (or any other place to generate collateral damage); bombing Iran appears to be top priority of the Israel government.

    • On December 4, 2011 at 5:38 pm,
      Big Al says:

      HI Bud,

      You bring up a very interesting point, and I do appreciate that.

      Iran is scary, but guess what? When the world feels that it is necessary (i.e. concrete proof of serious nuclear power and the will to use it against others) the country will be flattened.

      Don’t you think that is true?

    What he stated is the beginning of massive stories he is not telling.
    Don’t go down that road,Jerry.
