      Dear Al,

      Ok big Al……

      Whats most important in these perilous times people need to be saved from the
      coming destruction that is leading into the tribulation. This event is coming and
      the date is unknown but Gods Word says we will know the season. We are in that
      season.

      You need continue here with business but just a link would be awesome on your
      page. Also, the eternal rewards would last forever. Not that we do it for that reason
      but just saving people from destruction thats coming. The motivation is to help others
      safely exit the destruction and placed in Gods House.

      Link could be very small …” How To Escape Perilous Times”.

      Takes them to a highly qualified website where the real truth is found.

      Over time the biggest sceptic could be saved. The link is there and
      people do things on their own timing. Just need to try and plant the
      seed.

      If everyone did their part the whole world could be saved. God says the wisest
      thing a man can do is save souls. The harvest is plenty.

      Just a suggestion but it is the wisest choice. Especially right now.

      THE CLOCK IS TICKING !!!!!!

          amazingbible.org.

          This is one of many of coarse. Spells it out in an excellent way.
          It is the truth and is true to Gods Word.

          One thing thats highly important amazingbible knows we are in
          the final days. They encourage repentance…thats key to being
          saved. Its a very unique platform they have.

          NO DISINFORMATION. ….you know how I feel about that.

          BTW….its disinformation that won’t save. Its critical.

            Everything is there. For everyone. You could be a strong long time believer
            or new.

            A kind suggestion if you do decide …do it out of love to help others
            for that purpose. We force ourselves to do these things to help The
            GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL. … God will not recognize it.

            Must be freely done with no pressure. Take your sweet time.

            Its the love that means the most. GOD IS LOVE….

            I gotta keep working on it too…..AL.

            HH,

            Thanks for those two links. Looks like some interesting stuff. However you do not know nor does anyone know for sure if we are living in the last days. Every generation has had plenty of people saying the same thing because they saw signs. The same kind of signs that the Bible states we will see. Even the 1st Century Church believed that they were living in the last days. They were all wrong. Now if someone wants to have a strong opinion that we could be living in the last days that is alright. Each passing day we do get closer to the end but how far off it is no man knows. Only God knows for sure. And you, me and AmazingBible are not God.

            Im very sorry but when Israel became a nation again that changed everything.

            1946 something like that. …close.

            Jesus said himself that generation shall not pass away when Israel
            became a nation again.

            Go to hischannel.com.

            WORLD NEWS BRIEFING… WITH DON STEWART.

            Please im begging you to stop this disinformation.

            Before you post anymore…please do your D&D.

            PLEASE…PLEASE. .PLEASE.

            Go to livingbible.org … have yoir bible with you to verify.

            WE ARE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS. ALL THE SIGNS ARE IN.

            God said we will know the season. Not the time or day.

            THIS IS THE SEASON…even the mark of the beast is ready to go.

            Ezekiel 38 and 39….world war 3 is sbout to be full filled.

            I hope you can do your homework before any more posting

            Its false teachings.

            If one passes away before they are saved are you going to find an excuse
            that it doesn’t matter.

            I getting very bad feeling from you. So far you are not doing anyone a favor.

            You have everyone being saved in the trib., which is very very wrong.

            LEADING EVERYONE TO SLAUGHTER.

            Let me remind you God says if you add or take away from his word
            those that do with be cursed by God.

            TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION. …PERIOD.

            For many reasons. People could not live tomorrow.

            Then what…..please don’t say they are saved if they are
            Walking without The Lord.

            All I can do is pray you come to your senses.

            I TAKE THE GOSPEL VERY SERIOUS.

            Needs to do is put up the link. I can’t deal with these attacks that are
            From satan.

            Even satan and his demons know the bible from front to back cover.

            Coming here and post when you don’t know.

            Its an atrocitie. But the J Millets are everywhere and all over the church.

            Thank The Lord I can see through the lies with the armor of God

            Knowing his word…..J Millet is not fooling me. Im concerned about
            those who might believe him here. Thsts the concern.

            I CANT KEEP THIS UP…out in the world I just can walk away
            from these demons. Not here though.

            Don’t worry you won’t see me here. Im moving on.
            The harvest is plenty.

            BTW..if you don’t want to talk Christian. …why are you
            replying to me.

            Just scroll by. However, I can’t let you get away misleading
            people.

            THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOUR DOING.

            The reason is…you want to iive for the world.

            Don’t worry God see’s what your doing.

            You know what your doing too.

            NOT GOING TO WASTE MY TIME ANYMORE.

            Big harvest out there.

            Jesus said himself that generation shall not pass away when Israel
            became a nation again.

            Unless I misunderstand you, David Ben Gurion was the first prim minister of Isreal?
            He died in 1973
            First generation passed? no? No end of days.

            Not sure if your aware HH, there are over 30,000 different Christian groups/churches worldwide, they all figure they got it all figured out, and the other 29,999 get to burn.
            Whats the odds you got the right one?

            Should a person choose Christianity as his religion, with a belief of hell and burning for eternity if he gets it wrong, well, might Budism not be a little safer?

            Well….B

            Lets do some math. Forgive me but this will be very brief. Then you should visit

            livingbible.org.

            Christmas…….Jesus birthday…..not santa claus

            Easter…when Jesus rose from the grave. Not the easter bunny.

            God planned it where those would be celebrated by everyone
            Non believers too.

            That refers to….OUR GENERATION SHALL LIVE THROUGH THE END TIMES.

            Here we are…..its so close.

            Anyway…B….you need to seek the truth. Time must be invested.

            I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ASAP

            Go to that site above…it gets no better than that. Scripture is quoted to back it up.
            Have your bible to verify.

            One more….the bible is the most highly published book in the world.

            All these things did not just happen that way.

            Hope you can find in your heart to believe the truth.

            Not Budapest or any other false Gods.

            God help you if you do believe in these false Gods.

            Wish you the very best. Just hope you connect the dots
            soon. Things are getting very serious.

            Its at your risk and peril. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.

            Just remember …..because..The White Throne Of Judgment …since you want
            to believe in these false gods….The Lord will judge you and everything will be
            replayed in your life you rejected the truth. Anyone who is there is sentenced to
            hell.

            Its all black and white in the bible. Its not my rules.

            You refuse the truth and if I did….its the same for me.

            As everyone else. So please don’t go into a fit of denial.

            Anyway, we all have a responsibility to choose.

            The world is already a liar. …

            Its all up to you. Its your tragedy if you believe in the lies.

            IM NO DIFFERENT. ..B…..

            Gods Word does not support your views and according to the one and
            only God of the holy bible….

            ADVOCATING TO BELIEVE IN FALSE GODS….or believing in false gods.

            BOTH YOUR SOULS ARE IN GREAT PERIL.

            The God of the bible says there are no other gods.

            Quite frankly, its rejecting the one and only true God

            THE UNFORGIVABLE SIN.

            You deny the truth and thats your choice.

            Jesus says …you deny me ..I will deny you. Also, he can’t deny himself.

            Suggest Al, you may want to research this for your own welfare with God.

            The whole point in being saved is to accept the truth. Crutial. ..

            Also…B ..came to me…I never forced my views on him. I must
            represent the truth in Gods Word. Or im guilty.

            I know the truth and if someone asks me I must tell them the truth.

            OTHERWISE, HOW DOES ANYONE GET CONVERTED OR SAVED.

            They don’t, I rest my case.

            However, those who scoff at the tribulation near. …..you are mocking God.

            Scoffers have their destiny already for them…. into the tribulation.

            The only thing one can do…is enjoy the world while you still can.

            There is no prophecy, no tribulation, no hell, and its all ancient stuff.

            All the sin…its no problem…its all OK. DONT WORRY BE .HAPPY.

            Andrew. …..if someone is in my church or others …

            ELUDING TO THE FACT OR SUGGESTING ….ITS ACCEPTABLE …

            To worshipping false gods or Buda etc. These kinds of cults
            and going along with it ..agreeing there is nothing wrong with
            it….

            YOU AND OTHERS WOULD BE KINDLY INFORMED TO PLEASE
            VACATE THE PREMISES IMMEDIATELY.

            That kind of behavior could not be tolerated. False gods
            are completely unacceptable to the God of the holy bible.

            This is an unforgivable sin if one has not changed with this
            belief just like unbelievers who don’t believe. This is not to
            be promoted in Christian values. They who believe in false gods
            are not saved. A true Christian must represent Gods Word in truth.

            EVEN GOING ALONG WITH FALSE GODS IS THE SAME AS SAYING
            ITS OK …NOT TO BELIEVE.

            To even suggest it or condon it…would never cross
            my mind. Not to hate anyone but its not something
            a true Christian should ever be around.

            The God of the holy bible fully supports my view. As God
            as my witness.

            NO , GOD HELP ALL OF YOU SEE THE LIGHT.

            YOUR WASTING YOUR TIME. GO OUT AND ENJOY THE WORLD WHILE YOU CAN.

            Your soul will stay in peril until you decide to believe and represent the whole truth.

            I have watched this fellow before. He is good.

            I must tell you that I, of course, believe in and follow Jesus. I also believe that God also gave us free will. I am willing to talk with anyone about this, but I refuse to force my particular beliefs down someone else’s throat.

    It must be me but I get more and more confused lately when I listen to your interviews.

    The headline says you really like the way the precious metal charts are looking and yet when I listen to your interviews it is almost like pulling teeth to ever find anything positive to say about gold, and silver.

    Don’t get me wrong I have no objection with anyone who is negative on gold.

    As you know I have been quite critical myself.

    However I think a good market is a market that is going up, I guess I’m funny that way.

    I am not a trader so maybe none of this applies.

    However after listening to this interview I found out…

    Gold had a zero chance of getting to $1400 in March.
    You are surprised gold has performed as well as it has.
    You expect silver prices to go down.
    You expect silver to be a drag on gold

    You might be expecting spring doldrums for gold
    A Long period of consolidation

    This all seems negative to me.

    Am I missing something?

      Thanks for your comment James but I found Doc’s comments to be favorable towards the precious metals. Doc says he likes the stocks and that we are setting up for a really good move. Short term yes we may see some more downside but I am a long term holder and continue to hold my stocks because I think there is more upside to be had.

    So for first time in last 2 and a half years, I’m bullish on price of Gold going forward.
    Its a clear change in trend and for miners and I’m going long for first time. I told this Korelin forum last year that first half of 2014 will be crucial in reading tea leaves and break out for precious metals.

    Agree Doc. Watch the charts on silver. You might be about the only person I hear from who has noted how often silver leads gold up and down. And why would it not since its volatility is so much higher. Silver is just so touchy it often acts like an early warning system. I am sure the reason is that traders in silver are very much more active and short term focused while gold people seem to be more of the long haul types.

      Here’s a possibility, Bird (caveat—-the charts aren’t showing this just yet). I strongly believe silver will make its’ way down to $19.50. This will be somewhat of a pressure of gold. Silver at that point will be close to testing its’ lows. Gold will be considerably off its’ lows. At that point, silver is going to have to make a major decision. I might add that I can tell when silver gets down there that the bollinger bands will have narrowed considerably indicating a coming major move. At this time I’m betting that move would be to the upside. If it does, you know what will happen with gold which will be nowhere close to its’ low. We’ll see in the future whether that scenario plays out.

        Eric says:

        That’s an interesting scenario, Doc. I personally will buy more physical silver if it gives me another chance under $20.

        Even though I have been bullish silver long-term, I have been wondering lately whether it is decoupling from gold to a certain extent and acting more as an industrial metal (and perhaps a leading indicator of economic weakness), vs. gold’s role as a monetary metal.

        Though I grant that the gold/silver ratio appears stretched.

      • On March 18, 2014 at 12:50 pm,
        Birdman says:

        Interesting idea. It assumes that gold and silver won’t come back in sync or that the spread between the two widens further. I happen to agree silver is headed for a retest of lows though. It is sure looking threatening right now.

    Doc it would serve the market right if you were right about silver and yet they couldn’t buy any real metal. In my view as a silver owner that the market as you and your collegues know it is a farce and the price is too low to be accepted or tolerated.

      Birdman says:

      The jewelry shops are packed to the ceiling with silver necklaces, earings, rings and other trinkets. Prices are good. Silver is again in surplus globally. There is no fundamental reason for silver prices to be above 17 or 18 dollars an ounce. It is going to take a massive shift in thinking and a big sentiment change to get silver to really move up hard again. This may be my number one reservation where precious metals are concerned. Silver is just too readily available at fair prices for any sense of demand based on supply metrics to start building. I mean to say….people need to see the shelves of trinkets empty before they will notice and that is not going to happen anytime soon.

        I gotta say Bird, I think it is much more complicated than that.

        • On March 18, 2014 at 3:12 pm,
          Birdman says:

          Of course it is Al. We have always had jewelry shops full of precious metals. It is proof that supply and demand are almost totally irrelevant to price discovery of precious metals. More for gold than silver of course. But it is also evidence that prices of these metals are really speculative in nature and therefore very subjective over the short and medium term. It is only on the very long run charts that gold shows its worth relative to other commodities and goods. We don’t live in the long term though. All of us are in effect forced to confront pricing based upon a host of variables that have little to do with the historical valuations gold and silver held. Examples of this are interest rates, inflation, demand from Central Banks or nations, the information age and accessibility of internet to all corners of the globe and investor interests (or lack thereof). Some try to value gold according to how much money has been printed. But this exercise is pointless unless all countries are included in the money supply theme. Others try to price based on the size of the population or the absolute volume of existing metals stocks. More wasted time. Still others insist it is all supply/demand oriented or known untapped mine reserves should be our key to unlocking true value. None of this makes sense to me when I can readily see that it is speculative forces and sentiments that are the primary drivers of price each day. So sure, it is not simple. It is why I will not commit to holding any physical metals long term also. Gold is just a trade. You make a buck, get out and then prepare for the next round. I would not touch the stuff otherwise as it is pretty much worthless. Chickens matter more.

            Nothing for sale here Al. It takes all kinds of people to make the world go round. Some like to buy and hold metals. I don’t because generally it is not profitable. I would never try to dissuade others from what they like though. There is no profit in it one way or another because this is just entertainment as you always remind the listeners. Every viewpoint is welcome for the most part. Mine happens to be that holding gold is a quaint idea but that it is a relic of the old days. If things are ever so bad that I need gold to eat then they are also going to be so bad that gold is not what will fix it.

            Birdman clearly does not understand money nor its role as a medium of exchange. Go plot, on a graph, how many barrels of oil $285 dollars would buy in 2001 and how many barrels of oil an ounce of gold would buy. Now continue to plot those relationships up until today and see the difference in “money” and “currency”. In fact plot them over the last 100 years and come back and tell me what you see.

    James (the lesser) says:

    It’s funny – when I laid out my “fundamental bear case for silver” a few months ago you took the opposite view.

    Here it is again for anyone who missed it the first time…

    The Fundamental BEAR CASE for SILVER.

    For centuries now silver has served as a medium of exchange, a store of wealth, an industrial instrument , a household utensil, and an ornamental heirloom.

    And yet as we speak an ounce of silver hovers slightly above $21 an ounce.

    The price would hardly indicate that this precious metal is indeed rare, unique, sought after, or indispensable.

    And yet that is what we are supposed to believe?

    I think not. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.

    The new siren call for silver, like the boardwalk carnival barkers, is the fabulous wealth opportunity silver has to offer for those savvy investors who have the patience to wait and the ability to see way into the future. Rubbish I say.

    We are to believe that all these technological and industrial uses for silver will some day make it indispensable and by correlation outrageously expensive. Hog wash I say.

    The nature of economics, business and technology in particular has always been to find a better way. A more practical way. A more efficient way. A more economical way.

    This always has been and always will be.

    Like the dinosaurs, new business models spring up, old ones die a natural death.

    It is survival of the fittest. And this is how it should be.

    Right now digital content management, 3D printing, NANO technology are a few of the latest technological innovations that are creating paradigm shifts in the way we process, distribute, and organize content, how we manufacture, how we develop medical procedures, point of sale, identity security… On and on it goes.

    Whenever there is a challenge, technology finds a solution.

    Cheaper, faster, smaller.

    This will never change

    And so are we to believe that businesses, industries, governments will become increasingly more dependent on a metal that is becoming more and more rarer and more and more expensive?

    Never, never in a thousand years. And funny that’s almost as long as it’s been.

    Technology will find a way. No approaches will be taken. Synthetic chemicals will be tried, new business models will be entertained. Substances not even yet discovered will replace older materials. This is the track record of history. It will not change.

    Does anyone really think if we need silver that badly, businesses and governments will let the price increase substantially?

    Again no. They will keep it down. They will keep it affordable. This is only logical.

    I would also add anyone who is predicting what the future holds, 10, 20, 30 years out is rather foolish. And anyone advocating holding onto silver that long waiting for some payout is all together mad.

    Just look backwards thirty years from today. It want all that long ago.

    Did you expect to see cars that drive themselves?
    Did you expect to see storage capacity that can hold a cities worth of data in something no bigger than a grain of rice?
    Did you expect to see content from the entire globe delivered to your computer in the time it takes to say “Google”

    To think that 20 years from now will not be radically different from what we are living in today
    is folly. Innovations, devices, platforms we can’t even dream of today will be common place.

    To think that somehow silver will play a part in this is incredible.

    Can silver play a role as a monetary metal?

    Absolutely. It can serve in this capacity.

    But again the price will always be encumbered by government, business, industry.

    To sum it up –

    If you like silver, hold silver. Enjoy silver in all its forms.

    But to wait decades for some expected payout is not the best use of ones time or capital.

    We do not have decades. We are not going to live forever. Life is too short.

    I for one regret more and more each day I didn’t sell out at $48
    I even wish I had sold out at $40. Even $30 is looking good.

    Did I lose anything? Not monetarily, no. But time is money!

    Everyone needs to do what they feel is right. But I hope this gives you another perspective..

      Thanks for reposting that James. It was an excellent article you wrote in retrospect. Some of us are just in need of more time and maturing to see the folly of this speculation for what it really is. But as I recall I did agree with you back when you wrote this. My contention was that silver would not really shine for a couple decades more…..maybe 20 years out. Maybe I will be here to see it…..maybe not. Unless some really serious recycling gets underway the above ground stocks will be a lot smaller though. The kids will get to have the next debates in 2034 and beyond. By then I am sure I won’t care at all anymore! Hell,I am already pretty bored except when I nail a good fat price drop.

            Oh of course, yes. Indeed I did Al. It has improved my general disposition on the one hand but somewhat reduced my tolerance of foolish people on the other. So its going very well I think. I am pretty happy about it. Drinking every day really comes with a lot of costs where friends and family are concerned and in my case it was turning me into a full time a$$hole. Not sure why exactly….because I am pretty easy to get along with sober. You might have noticed my mood improved since last December. Anyway, I had been thinking a lot I needed to get out more so I will take a rest from posting. HH has conveniently provided me with the excuse I needed to get the hell out of the house and see if my general health can’t improve a bit more. I am not getting any younger! See you next week.

    Gold gets a “C-” today.

    If made a rather weak attempt at a come back and came way short.

    We now are faced with what I think is the crucial pivotal point…

    If gold continues to go down tonight and tomorrow it must hold $1340.

    This will be the critical test.

    It cannot go below $1340.

    This Is the first test of $1340 since it broke through convincingly this month.

    If gold holds I am confident the bottom is in.

    If not then let’s admit defeat

    In any event this will be my last post for a while…

    Along the same theme, supply has always met demand, might have been a supply issue somewhere like not being able to mint enough specific coins, other than that, I have never seen a shortage.
    Also, with all the talk of line ups, I never did se one.
    Once on this site a line up was mentioned, it wasn’t for buyers but people selling.
