Hour 2:
  • Segment 5: Cory, Chris and Richard Postma, AKA Doc, talk about the energy markets, in light of the Iran deal framework, long-term issues and the need to eventually find alternatives to fossil fuels.
  • Segment 6: Cory, Doc and Chris are back, this segment talking about gold. The consensus is short-term cautious, longer-term bullish.
  • Segment 7-8: Chris wraps up the weekend show with an interview of one of his heroes, Paul Glover, of www.paulglover.org. In a wide-ranging discussion, they talk about Glover’s founding of the Ithaca HOURS community currency and how it’s been used as a springboard for many other community-centered efforts in health care, food, investments, and a LOT more!

    Chris, Cory and Doc,

    You guys have been first class, A+, big-time pinch hitters filling in for Big Al and taking a leadership role.

    Nothing but respect and appreciation for your superb efforts.

    Thanks guys.

      Agree 100% Vortex. These guys have been great. All the respect in the world for how they pulled it all together to keep the show online. That’s what friends are for! I am really enjoying Chris’s long interviews too…….12 to 15 minutes each. We are not used to that here but its nice when he get deep into the conversation.

        Vortex says:

        Bird, I’m simply amazed at the dedication and stamina that the guys bring forth each and every day of the week.

        Its a monumental personal investment for each of them, and a testament of the respect each of them must have towards each other and what being a true friend really means.

        These acts know no monetary value because they reside outside that venue.

        The acts of keeping big Al’s site running smoothly in a difficult time are bigger than money itself.

        I refer to it as the sweet spot of friendship which can be counted on one hand.

      Agree Vortex. Everyone has done a great job. Thanks for calling in remotely from your honeymoon Cory, and Chris – Awesome Job!

      Chris – I was also appreciative for the segment on Kivalliq Energy, and the Uranium space. This is one of the biggest plays I see in the next 2-3 years, and while the sector has been decimated since 2011, I believe things bottomed at the end of last year and are basing for a dramatic increase.

      The fundamentals for Uranium are extremely bullish mid term, and were before the Fukushima accident, but (as usual) people Over-Reacted. The Japanese are set to start their reactors this year, and that will help, but even so, the market perceptions are greatly divorced from the reality.

      The reality is that nobody cares if Germany disbands its nuclear program as they are small potatoes, and while Japan is important, it pales in comparison to US, French, Russian, Chinese, Indian, South Korean supply needs. There is also substantial rising interest in the middle East and developing South Asia. Russia and China and the US are helping developing countries build large reactors, and that supply has to come from somewhere.

      At the low prices (far below the cost of production for any open pit or underground mining) and just above costs for Insitu-mining.

      We’ll see the price take a sudden jump in late 2015 and in early 2016. Most of the long term supply contracts (that end in 2016) are around $52-$60 and this is the only reason companies have plugged ahead during these tough times. With the exception of Uranium Energy Corp, the remainder of companies are selling their product at far above spot prices (like Cameco, Areva, Paladin, Uranium One, Energy Fuels, Uranerz, Ur-Energy, and Denison).

      The other thing is that the Uranium supply that was flooding the markets from the Megatons to Megawatts project of disarming US and Russian warheads concluded in 2013/with spillover into 2014. Lasty, Japan sold most of its Uranium to China to raise money to purchase coal, oil, and gas to power their country the last few years, so they’ll need to restock many of their stockpiles once they throw the switch and turn those back on.

      China is building 29 reactors at present with 70 more scheduled, planned, or getting permitted. Just that alone is more than Japan & Germany combined, and doesn’t take into account the reactors they already have in place, or are building for other countries.

      It appears that Uranium will likely lead the commodity and energy space as the first horse out of the gate this year. I have been building good positions over the last year in Uranium miners/producers, and the surviving quality explorers.

      Kivalliq has been on my watch list for some time, and I was just on their website early this week catching up their new press releases. It was very cool to have them on the weekend show!

        Shad says:

        BTW – Great Segment on Energy with Cory, Chris, and Doc. I liked the overview of how the space is changing and agree with all 3 of you that moving forward, Nuclear, Solar, Wind, and Nat Gas will only grow in importance, and oil and coal will diminish. I still think oil has 2 good decades left though as we are still in the changes from fossil fuels to greener electricity and Lithium batteries.

        • On April 4, 2015 at 12:35 pm,
          Shad says:

          The battery industry will only grow more globally for cars, phones, computers, appliances, tow motors, and backup power. Lithium and Graphite will have a very slow bull market over the next 5 years, against the disbelief from those that saw those bubbles pop in 2010-2012. There is a legitimate need for more battery power and there are a few good projects that survived the carnage and fallout in those spaces that should do well.

        I have a serious problem with Kivalliq.

        I distrust ANY management that can potentially dilute shareholders by giving millions of options to management.
        In my book that stinks.
        I know Big Al will say that’s merely incentivisation, and recently the options expired worthless.
        But my trust in management was destroyed.

    Re Seg 4 Some Christian fundamentalists along with some Zio-Christians in Israel will be growing increasingly schizophremic. Deposed President Ahmadinejad was understood to be the Twelth Mahdi of Islam namely the ‘False Prophet’, and thus the precursor of the Antichrist!. Now with the U.S. getting to be all buddies with Iran, there’s going to be yet more confusion among the end timers.

    RICHARD-DOC says:

    Thanks, guys, a lot. I’ve known Cory, Al, and Chris for some time now and I know Al gets insinuations thrown at him periodically by people that don’t know him well and he handles that with class. I’ll say it once again. I’ve met very few people like Al in my life who truly cares about others before himself. Plus he has integrity and is always attempting to do the right thing. And Cory is a young guy that is responsible, straight forward and loyal. Chris is one of the smartest guys I’ve met as it relates to so many subject matters and for him to step up when Al had to step aside was something to behold. I’ve been blessed to have fallen into another situation in life where I’ve met people like this and the impact they’ve had on my life. I might add, i look forward to every day to be able to be a part of this program and the many people that contribute their thoughts and wisdom. It’s been a great time of my life.

    Re: Segment 4:
    The Iranian nuclear deal represents the most disgusting betrayal of the U.S. by an ego maniacal despot determined to establish a supposed “peaceful” legacy. In this mistaken belief, the Emperor of the USA trades the stability of the Middle East, if not the whole world, for a brief moment of declared peace legacy.
    Not even Neville Chamberlin would have acted with such stupidity, mis-evaluation and lack of foresight.

      Iran has no nuclear weapons program.

      Israel does have a nuclear weapons program.

      Why don’t we discuss real issues and ignore the imaginary Boogie Men?

      The alternative to a peace deal with Iran is WW III. The betrayal of the US is by those traitors who want to tank the agreement. That includes the Congressmen who sent the letter to Iran saying they were against the deal before they even knew what the deal was.

      There is one belligerent power in the Middle East and the US acts as their attack dog. I’m tired of hearing that we need to send more money and more of the blood of our children to further the territorial aims of a meaningless tiny group of madmen.

        Ebolan says:

        You’re right, Bob.

        The reason we don’t discuss real issues is because our rulers in the District of Criminals are bought and paid for and one of the entities that has them bought is AIPAC and other Israilie related lobbies.

        Also, most Mercans (as Bushie calls ’em) are brain washed sheeple who believe any propaganda their rulers and the lamestream media tell them and the sheeple scare very easily. But by reading certain posters in this blog and other places I’m sure you already know all that.

    Re: Segment 6: Interesting comments from Doc. I like the consistency of his analysis.
    It has held $1200, 800 GB Pounds and 1100 (not 1000 but 1100) Euros at the close of this week.
    the gold in US dollars chart is still struggling but in Euros the chart has moved into a higher trading range and the Feb/March lows of 2015 have been above all of the 2014 trading range. That surely must have some importance because the Eurozone is still big, even if it is in ongoing crisis.
    With my optimistic hat on, I would call this bottoming process similar to the 1999-2001 period, with the accompanying US dollar strength and possible stock market blowout. In that case, gold bottomed before the dollar topped.
    We are now nearly two full years into this new bottoming process in gold as of early April 2015. The gold crash was on the 12th and 15th of April 2013.
    I still wonder about what can happen on the next gold rally. I think the dollar has to be back on its way down before there can be a substantial rally in gold and it might till take some time for that to happen. However, in Euro terms, one might argue that a bull market in gold has resumed.

    Andrew de Berry (Rev) says:

    CFS You speak of Obama being an ego-maniacal despot, but what of those neo-cons in the U.S. and Israel who are simply itching to have a go at Iran? Whilst I would agree that the U.S. response seems truly bizarre – one moment treating Iran like a mortal foe only to embrace her the next. But Iran is no more evil that Israel when it comes to most of their citizens just wanting to get on with their lives while waging war with nobody. Just as there are those who say Iran has nuclear weapons there are as many who say she doesn’t, and speaking of which Israel continues to harbour at least 400 nuclear warheads.

          If a treaty is a stupid treaty, then opposition to such a treaty is intelligent.

          Explain this Chartster:
          Why is Iran building ICBMs?
          An ICBM, interContinental Ballistic Missile, is not built to deliver a conventional explosive payload. It’s too expensive for that. It is intended to use a nuclear payload.
          Ar people dumb asses to wish to not see Iran have the capability of nuclear attack against essentially an country in the world?
          They already have missiles that can strike Israel, so one MUST question why they are building ICBMs.

            This is for you.

            Israel’s propagandists shoot themselves in the foot as they shoot off their mouths
            By Greg Felton | September 30, 2009

            If you have ever visited a blog or on-line discussion group on the Middle East you have doubtless had the misfortune to run into them.

            They are known by the language they use: depraved sexual insults, bile, bigotry, threats, disinformation and character assassination. That’s right: I’m talking about “hasbarats,” Zionist trolls who infect the Internet with hasbara, pro-Israel propaganda. Of course, mainstream media hasbarats have been around for decades, as have “hasbaratchiks,” fifth-columns in foreign governments who subvert national policies to serve Israel. The Internet, though, is the latest, some might say the greatest, propaganda playground, and Israel cannot cope with factual, passionate, well-documented stories that expose its war crimes and unrepentant criminality.

            If you’ve come across a hasbarat, on-line or otherwise, you have learned that no amount of reasoned argument or intellectual maturity has any effect. That’s because hasbarats don’t care if they come across as ignorant, obnoxious, nasty or inane. All that matters for them is sabotaging criticism of Israel and support for Muslims. They’re like anti-intellectual stink bombs: designed to cause maximum discomfort but have little if any real power.


            If you think the treaty is stupid, why don’t you explain why instead of hurling insults? Are you a Hasbarat on a mission of disinformation? It sounds like it.

            There is no such thing as a good war or a bad peace.

          The reason Iran will sign any treaty, even if they intend to ignore it, is to have sanctions lifted and sell oil.

          Iran yielded NOTHING in the treaty. the US moved the goalposts again and again until they think they have a treaty.

            There’s a lot more to the deal than you realize, CFS.
            it has everything to do with free trade agreements that have been negotiated for many months now. The nuke deal was a big step to starting a new financial structure.

          A plan made under different circumstances by different leaders and not, to my knowledge ever acted upon.
          For that matter the reporter, Yinon, had much less credibilty than Snowden and failed to back up his accusation with documentation….if my memory is accurate, which after this time, it may not be.

          That statement is utter BS. Iran did yield and what you and the rest of the trolls ignore is that Iran has a legal right to a nuclear program. They are in accordance with international law, Israel ignores international law and has threatened to use nuclear weapons as late as a week ago, detonated one in 1979 and tried to sell them to South Africa. The Yinon Plan calls for Israel to dominate the Middle East by attacking all of their neighbors and they have used the US as their attack dog to attack 7 countries since 2001. If we took an honest poll of everyone on the board right now and people were required to tell the truth, we would learn that you and CFS haven’t even read the framework of the agreement. I’d guess Birdman has read it, he’s not stupid even if he is biases and misguided but there isn’t a chance in hell you ever looked at the facts. If you did, it would be the very first time.

        Did you see yesterday’s story from Ambrose Evans Pritchard, Andrew? Greece has now drawn up a battle plan to return to the Drachma and may default on its IMF loan which comes due on the 9th of April.

        Not so coincidentally to the timing is that the ECB Governing Council meets on April 15th to make a decision on whether to extend Emergency Assistance (ELA) to Greek Banks. These dates are key in my view.

        As you will recall, the Titanic sank on April 15th 1912 so that is its 103rd anniversary date. I hardly doubt the symbolism and now expect the worst as Greece looks certain to default strategically rather than risk its remaining funds while the Troika holds out awaiting reforms that are entirely incompatible with the Syriza party platform and promises to its electorate.

        But what does this mean? Is it Democracy itself that is under attack given Greece is the birthplace of our modern democratic ideals? Or is there more to it than that? Should Greece sink there will be casualties. As usual, there are not enough lifeboats for all the passengers and perhaps this will symbolize the beginning of the end of the Euro experiment itself.

    ■■■■■■■■■■■■ BIRD, ..YOU ARE A COMPULSIVE LIAR AND A FRAUD. ■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■


    Regarding gold mining and all the above supplies of gold.

    The truth is there is not enough gold to cover all the reckless
    amounts of money in digital form through toxic government
    bond buying with funny money that doesn’t exist.

    With regard to mining gold there is very little impact to the
    environment and we need gold to counter the corrupt politicians
    in the conquest to wrongfully steal from the masses by design.

    Briefly speaking because I’m not here to invest all my time to
    counter your…FRAUD. I want to expose you. Hopefully others
    will acknowledge my efforts and speak out. Some have but you
    are over running the site. A blogger on steroids ? Literally running
    everyone over unless they comply with your philosophy.

    Regarding God. The Old Testament you claim to know so well. If
    you know it so well God will not tolerate a world or nation in rejection
    to him and leave him out of our daily lives you advocate doing. We
    can’t ignore God without total destruction coming to the world or
    a nation. The Old Testament is very clear on this.


    We are living in a God rejecting or a high desire to ignore God ..World.

    Expect very catastrophic events in the near and long term.

    Sorry Bird, but you can’t continue in these fraudulent activities
    without my voice to counter measure it. Especially being accused
    of things I’m not doing. I had one word God in a very long posting
    and was accused I should leave God out 2 days ago.

          I don’t see it making any difference what we use as a unit of account, gold or digits.

          I think we need a new system, whatever that is. But part of repairing would be to rid ourselves of the ruling psychopaths, until we figure out a way to deal with that, it wont matter what we use as money or what system of government we have.

          I could be totally wrong of course, its just what I think.

          And I have absolutely no idea how to get rid of them.
          Other than a first step is to recognise the situation.

            think eternal at the same time if we believe in Gods Holy Word.

            Rightfully so Big AL.

            Thats why I mentioned ” Good Cheer”.

            Personal attitude goes a long distance
            in respecting Gods Word as well. Just
            between you and me. Not pitching this
            to any non believers here.

            Anyway, we see perilous events and Gods
            Word matches the news perfectly.

            “Personal attitude”, we must face the reality
            of the world we live and accept the perils
            that exist. God told us what’s coming and
            to ignore it would be of a poor attitude.

    I’m not bullish on nuclear. I think the world economy is going to slow down.

    And the global elite want fewer people on this planet using less energy.

    Heck, in Colliefornia (as Ahnode calls it) they won’t even let us have plastic grocery bags and if you want a paper bag you have to pay 10 cents plus tax each. You won’t see a new nuclear plant in Colliefornia ever.

    I will see you at Christmas HEAVEY. Predicting an appocolyps is like trying to predict the direction of gold. Sitting around waiting is waisteing good life time that can be enjoyed.
    As for mining gold the amount of energy and pollution in these locations is very high. The capital system works for the most part accept where greed is involved or governments that have the power to overspend. I remember may so called pros like Rob McEwen talking about gold being way higher years ago. Go take a look at his stock. I dumped about $250,000 of it at $5 and never looked back. Gold promoters and gold bugs get caught up in the lies and the ripoffs while one could have been making a killing on Tech and Bio the last few years. There’s a world out there and gold folk have the gold blinders on. I find it hilarious how stupid this is. This is Not all pointed at you HEAVEY.

      Bill, you need to believe what ever you want. However, the
      truth in my words above is already coming to pass.

      The world is in very poor shape financially and much pain
      is coming.

      People want to believe they can ignore God they are finding
      out even now that its causing the world pain but they refuse
      the truth.

      Refuse the truth, refuse God and things are going to be really
      catastrophic. Its just begun.

      Thanks for the comments but the truth hurts and most would
      rather believe the worlds lies. Like money printing.

        There have been doomsday scinarios since for centuries. There will be finacial events but you have to think about who it’s going to be bad for. I travel all over BC and WA state and things are filing along. Bilding is brisk. I’ve booked $300,000 so far in my tiny cell communications company. My buddy just bought a house in Vancouver for $900k and you could not replace it for that. Numbers can fool people as over time debts will be absorbed. The only thing that could derail the debt and economy is an interest rate shock which I don’t see happening. I run a business that services a mult billion dollar telecom firm and nobody cares about this. I’ve been listening to the same dooms day crap for 15years. We could go another 15 befor another event. Meanwhile back at the potatoe farm all is well.
        China has more dry powder than anyone thinks and this is a large engine. The U.S. has issues but there’s a lot of bright spots when you don’t dwell on the negative. Peace out man

    Really can’t disagree with a word of what you write HH. As I’ve said before Birdman is Al’s Achilles heel since he f….s with everyone’s head on this site. Nor can we go on endlessly appeasing someone who is such a total Jekyll & Hyde. Keeping the peace only goes so far just like those who cry peace, peace where there is none.
    Jesus at this very time in our Christian calendar was surrounded by 12 disciples sort of wanting to keep the peace. Some of them fell asleep, with another denying him and lastly there was the outright betrayal by Judas.
    So for those who don’t like the religious element to any posts here, well you do well to bear in mind that many of the contributors on this site ARE Christian, and that the Christian message is absolutely central to fighting so much of the sheer wickedness we see all about us.

    As for those of you who understand may you have a peaceful and joyful Easter, and yes THE LORD IS RISEN. HE IS RISEN INDEED!! Andrew

            Totally consistent with what Jesus talked about if anyone is unaware.

        A listener and bill, can’t agree more. Though Al and Co are Christian should have nothing whatsoever to do with programming and info on the show PERIOD.
        Not for economic inquiry / investigation, not even for moral / ethical investigation or commentary!
        Moral / ethical discussions are certainly great but in no way shape or form does Christianity have any sort of monopoly on what is morally correct.
        Do I need to make points about how comical but sad I believe it is for grown adults to go on about jesus (a completely fictional character invented by man for the purpose of fear and control)? No, because I know believers have no wish to question their fundamental beliefs as such. If an individual is reasonable re morals / ethics, there is no need to waste time arguing about these things. The religious extreme on this site constantly bring up Christ (which the majority of us don’t want or need to hear about). Please respect that as we are trying to have rational discourse here in regards to some great information Al and Co as well as listeners bring forth!

          Jay, I was harrassed and very rudely abused being ordered never
          to do that again.

          Jay, that’s unacceptable. If the name Jesus or God is in a post this
          forum of fellow posters should not be vicious to treat others in a
          abusive manner.

          In all my commentary I will continue to post what I feel is important
          and maybe add some humor as well.

          Jesus or God in my postings as well if I feel its relevant or deemed
          something I should include at my discretion.

          Please note : I will also use inactive forums that no one is using

      Agatha, that’s an interesting question. I’ve been wondering the same thing. What’s in it for us since we don’t do things just because we’re “nice guys”. It could be that Iran has formed a solid relationship with Russia and China and the U.S. would like to throw a wedge in that. Of course, you have the fact Iran is going to need a lot of help modernizing their oil industry.

      I think it’s a setup Agatha. War is in the cards down the road and they (Iran) will pay a very heavy price if they secretly develop the bomb outside the inspection process and review. Perhaps the heaviest price of all. Let us assume nothing and yet conclude the obvious. And maybe that country will host the ultimate war theater when the day and the time arrives. I really don’t know of course but this is an Occam’s razor moment in my view. We must look at this problem at face value and impute the fewest variables and assumptions possible. Why indeed would an American President agree to a deal that has so many pitfalls and dangers inherent in its design? There is more to this than meets the eye.

          OK, now I am afraid. If the brightest guy in the room agrees with me on this point then it is a high probability nuclear war will break out over the skies of Tehran some time in the next few years.

          And why should we doubt that would happen?

          If Japan paid the heavy price for arrogance and a refusal to bow to a superior authority…..and then she was subsequently bombed into submission in the last war is it really that unlikely our current Middle Eastern nemesis will not see a similar fate?

          The thing is though, I don’t think we will face an existential global nuclear threat. On the contrary it is my view that a proxy war between Russian and America will take place on a battleground that is the territory of neither.

          Iran is a key player in a hot contested region and probably the country that will host the conflagration this next time around. Her arrogance and unwillingness to bend are already the seeds being planted to make that sad day a reality.

          I am sorry to say this but my prediction is that Iran will take the nuke when the next one falls on a real city in our lifetime. That will be the lesson to everyone.

          Hope everyone is having a pleasant W-E.

          When informed and powerful people “up there” decide to do things that seem to not make sense for most of us “down here”… I suspect (a) asymmetry of information and/or that (b) we’re missing something down here.

          To get above the Rep/Dems debate (to which I am not part of as I think they all end up doing the same thing – ie taking care of themselves, and not of the average US Joe), I kindly remind ourselves that the Iran topic has been around for years. YEARS. Y-E-A-R-S.
          So no, this is not an Obama thingy. This was a G.W.B thingy before him, and nothing, nothing, n-o-t-h-i-n-g has been “done” militarily to that country for years (I’m not making a judgment and saying it’s a good thing or a bad thing: I’m just reminding ourselves of what has happened – ie in that case, nothing).

          So if nothing has happened for so many years despite all the threats, all the words and the bla bla bla by various US politicians (and their western puppies)… maybe there’s a (or several) reason(s) ???
          So back to my initial point: maybe there’s (a) asymmetry of information and/or (b) we’re missing something down here.

          Personally, if I say “I want to buy that stock, I want to buy it, I want to buy it” and I don’t do it, it means, that ultimately, I did NOT want to buy it.
          So likewise, if I have the means to punish someone and for years I keep threatening, does it mean I am serious about punishing that person ? or does it mean the opposite ? That’s an easy call I guess.

          Also, have we thought about the fact that IF the Middle-East gets “pacified” or becomes “more quiet”, that means MUCH LESS business for the US arms industry ? and also LESS JOBS at home back in the US ? Also fewer reasons for a US military presence in the region in the eyes of regional governments ? And therefore maybe “Bye-Bye the petrodollar” ?
          So, in this framework, what is the best for the arms industry and jobs back home + the foreign deployment of US troops + the US trying to keep the reserve currency of the world as long as possible: a unified and pacified Middle-East, or a region where geopolitical uncertainties are LEFT/MAINTAINED to last?

          Just asking questions… But back to my initial point again: (a) asymmetry of information and/or (b) we’re missing something down here.

          My 2 cents.

          Best to all,

            Good post and question. And yes, most are missing something. The nuclear deal with Iran sets a new standard ( and stance ) of what the US and the rest of the world are committed to. And that is Peace! However, there are struggles within government personnel that are good and evil. The evil being the ones wanting war. ( pretty easy to spot those bastards here in the states, if you know what I mean?)

            It is as you suggested the fall of the petro dollar. These bad guys just don’t want to give up the graveyard train of war. But, it’s over anyway.

            They are fighting the new financial system that is coming. They can’t stop it. My only guess why they are trying to stop it, is because they have put them selves at risk or in other words, stuck their heads in the noose!

            They are fighting what I’ve been telling you is coming. An asset based currency system. The restructuring of the whole financial system.

            If they can’t print money for war? Guess what, No More War…!!

            That’s the deal.

Martin who happens to be a very bright analyst has identified capital flows and sovereign (bond) defaults as the reason stocks will be bid up. He is absolutely 100% correct in my view. The money has got to go somewhere. The thesis he has put forward states that there will be a shift from public to private as confidence is lost in so-called safe assets like debt. This is after all the end of the credit / debt cycle. We have nearly peaked just as interest rates have bottomed. You need to look back in history and see what happened the last time the same set of circumstances arose to appreciate why he is correct.

    You are 100% correct and it bears being repeated over and over no matter how much flack you might receive. The truth of the matter is people for the most part need someone or something to blame. Its just human nature and one of our weakest flaws.

    The greater gold and silver community in the 21st Century has been its own worth enemy for fomenting and regurgitating many of these crack-pot theory’s over the years.

    There must always be a boggy man lurking around every corner to substantiate or rationalize an investment thesis that may not be working out at any given time.

    The unfortunate and uncomfortable truth is that all markets have been and always will be manipulated in some form or fashion and have been from the beginning of the time of leveraged market environments. I’m not saying it was done with fairness or honestly at its core, just that it is.

    As it relates to the physical gold and silver markets, if you buy a coin or a bar you are buying the ultimate historical insurance of the last resort and you should view it’s ownership as just that. A valuable transitional asset combined with a wide range of other protective assets should be your goal as a balanced portfolio of assets.

    If you are buying mining companies traded on the global paper markets you should fully understand the inherent imbalances with in those markets.

    By placing funds as a shareholder with exchange traded companies is simply betting with the companies management to maintain a solvent balance sheet and/or grow that balance sheet through positive resource exploitation, and by its inherent paper associating is positively a form of gambling.

    Bob you’ve been saying it for years and it still holds true today.

    No one has ever made a damn penny off of worrying and complaining about market manipulation.

    Just go out and invest in the best management teams with excellent financial stewardship with the best assets in the safest global jurisdictions and not even a manipulated market can stop your ultimate profits from being realized.

        Manipulated markets are a fact of life and have always been so to some extent, whether you can wrap your mind around those facts or not is a cross for you the bare.

        Being rude and fabricating a story-line that is not true doesn’t advance the respectful discussion of community peers and it damn sure doesn’t change the historical evidence of market lawlessness through out history as it relates to human greed and financial advantage.

    Anyone loaning money to a Greek bank is going to get exactly what they have coming and they are going to get it good and hard. Greece is a serial bankrupt and no one with any sense would loan them a dime. Including those dumb enough to deposit their savings.

    From a mathematical point of view, nearly every government on earth is bankrupt because democracy as a form of government is little more than two wolves and a sheep arguing over what to eat for lunch. All democracies begin to fail when the mob learns they can vote themselves benefits.

    Greece is merely the first to go. They will be as a single flake of snow that started an avalanche. The very best thing that can happen is to have a massive reset and all the king’s horses and all the king’s men will be helpless to stop it.

    It’s not overstating the case to say our government today is little more than a gang of criminals. I read something yesterday that said that last month the police killed 111 Americans. Last month alone. Yet the police in Great Britain have only killed 50 citizens in the country since 1900. It’s pretty obvious that the cops in the US are utterly out of control and a bad license plate bulb or stop sign violation can get you killed and the courts almost always support the police.

    LBJ probably was behind the killing of JFK, Bush and Cheney lied us into Iraq and Afghanistan and have bankrupted the country. Obama can’t figure out who the enemy of the day is and at one time had five wars going on at the same time. Clinton uses a personal server for government business on emails that by law must be retained and when she gets a subpoena, she formats the hard drive. And she’s still in the race. Are they all nuts?

    “Giant Mine was once one of Canada’s richest gold mines, creating jobs and yielding more than 200 tonnes of the precious metal between 1948 and 2004.”
    “The process used to extract gold from the mine created a highly toxic dust called arsenic trioxide.”
    “There’s probably enough underground to kill every person on the planet a couple times over,”
    “The government is planning to freeze the chambers that are holding the arsenic dust in place, to prevent it from escaping into the surrounding soils and waterways. That plan will cost taxpayers $903 million, plus an additional $2 million per year to maintain the freezing system forever – or at least until new technologies evolve to safely dispose of the substance.”

      Good post, Irwin. This is a reminder that there is a cost to extractive industries giving us more of the materials we need (or want.) I’m not sure most countries are yet ready to get more serious about 1. getting by with less or 2. requiring safer recovery methods. Where the latter of those 2 is concerned, if today’s requirements, environmental and otherwise, were in place, it may well have prevented such larger eyesores and environmental headaches as the Giant Mine.

      Intriguingly, methods like block cave mining are coming about allowing for bulk tonnage recoveries completely underground. This will lessen the numbers of open pits somewhat. At the same time, lower grades challenge industries.

      Curiously, while the US government particularly is very tough generally where mining is concerned these days, it doesn’t care what damage fracking does to the environment. Places that never had earthquakes are having many. Water tables are being compromised. Methane is being released into the atmosphere at a faster rate, negating the supposed reduction in greenhouse gases by recovering and using larger amounts of natural gas.

      Bottom line is that where most things are concerned, the easier/safe resources have already been recovered.

          So it is with increasingly scarce resources like metals. The plunder and waste mentality has not yet caught up with the reality of how we are squandering our environment in the extractive processes for minerals that sometimes do not add real value to our human legacy as stewards of the earth.

          I continue to advocate for an end to certain types of gold mining. As I said before…if gold is really so important then lets just trade on the certificates that represent ounces in the ground rather than dig it up and shit in our own beds in the process.

    Gold prices should experience a low volatility meltup before any high volatility event can occur. In the main prices should edge up out of the ‘skew’ in vogue since June, 2013. Derivatives trade involving gold futures are mostly based on CPI-ratings that might be absolutely correct mathematically, but that the CPI underestimates the 40-year inflation adjusted average by as much as ~$150/oz.

    A ShadowStats calculation of the $42 US gold price fix in 1969 in 2014 dollars reveals price adjustments to where the gold price is now. There’s a strong similarity between this price adjustment in ShadowStats and a notional 40-year CPI inflation adjusted average that may be too low. I think taking the 1969 gold price fix and adjusting it with ShadowStats is a fair appraisal of where gold prices should be, adjusted for inflation.

    Should interest rates finally see negative rates on US Treasury Bills and further along the yield curve, then gold prices should see strong advances.

    The danger that is on the horizon occurs when one portion of the global economy advances too fast that it loses touch with the basic fundamentals and the whole thing implodes into a Dark Age. If there was a massive civil unrest to the point normal commerce ceases to move, many cities have only a week’s worth of food. Those people will have to leave the cities and rob the suburbs or starve. Many have lost the knowledge of how to even grow food. With each step in economic evolution we leave critical basics behind. Do you remember the actual phone numbers you call or you just push a button on your cell phone?
    I think the Administration recognizes the danger to itself. Hence the militarization of police forces, Jade Helm 15 operations and the purchase of 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point ammunition, designed to kill, not maim citizenry. These are perilous times in which we live, governed by an Islam-leaning Marxist and a Congress intent on maintaining their jobs rather than working in the best interests of the country.

    FMT Interviews Keith Neumeyer of First Majestic

    By Turd Ferguson | Sunday, April 5, 2015 at 9:51 am
    In this terrific new video, Future Money Trends interviews Keith Neumeyer, the CEO of primary silver miner First Majestic.

    You’ll recall the Mr. Neumeyer made waves last year by openly stating that paper silver prices were manipulated. In this call, he discusses the industry reaction to his claims, the effect that lower energy prices is having and the currents status of mining, in general. Toward the end of the interview, there is also a discussion of the pending “global reset” that so many are anticipating.

    Additionally Mr. Neumeyer, along with Rick Rule and Eric Sprott, is launching a new company that will act as a “mineral bank” with the plan of acquiring high quality assets from distressed sellers.

      THAT is an EXCELLENT idea Agatha. Thanks for the link. I mean that is such a good idea it is one I could get behind and buy into. Without having heard the interview i can imagine it might contain resources other than just gold and silver. But it’s brilliant. I have to hand it to those guys if they can pull together a group of sweet assets at deep discount prices and then offer the opportunity for anyone to participate in a share of the ownership.

    Every month the US Government reports trade:

    If you track all such reports, you will realize a problem…..
    Almost every month for two decades the US appears to have net exports of gold in excess of known mine production.
    Adding up excess amounts over the last 20 years, it would appear that the US has exported over 5,500 tonnes of gold in excess of imported gold and mined gold.

    Trader Jack pointed out….The GDX and GDXJ gave us massive Positive Volume Reversal days on Wednesday – this is very bullish and argues for a big bounce. Big money flow hit the PM stocks yesterday on a no news situation – this is bullish. Up to now hedge funds were shorting gold stocks ….

    Al, having done my bit for Queen and Country this weekend in helping with six grandchildren, I hope that you & your family had the rest you all doubtless deserve and need following your illness.

    However and I apologise to one and all for drawing attention to Birdman yet again. But I believe Al you need to recognise that this man impugns the reputation of your site, being as I’ve said before its potential Achilles heel. Not only do his posts exceed in number all other posts, their content is not as extraordinary as some might suppose. Nor is he as brilliant as one or two would mistakenly have us believe. Regarding his fracas with HH he BM has gone well over the top. Whilst as HH knows I do not agree with his end-time scenarios, he’s a good man and to my mind a fine Christian. BM on the other hand is repeatedly obnoxious to him, and nor of course is BM offensive to him alone. He’s called Bob Moriarty an anti-Semite along with others, while treating Matthew abominably and to a lesser extent myself. For anyone whose posts include that I rot in hell or who maligns the state of my marriage, or that my writing is somehow a financial flop has got serious problems. Just fleetingly and recently BM expressed a sort of contrition saying that he was too old to change, and it was the way that God made him. Well that’s to insult God. God did NOT make him in such a way that he’s incapable of ever saying sorry.
    And here’s the caveat. In one sense BM has come to monopolise this site, which is just how a narcissist works and would have it.
    Al, everyone knows you to be a fine and special person. But sometimes we need to rise above the role of being a peacemaker at all costs.

    Very best once more, Andrew

      You just don’t get it Andrew.

      The point is that all of you need to stop with the incessant the negativity. I am constantly on the defensive as you (amongst others) dog-pile me at each opportunity and think you have an upper hand with the momentum of the crowd.

      If I despise Western Priests I can assure you it is for good reason. But that does not make me non-pious or God hating as some might suggest. Meanwhile, you might make an effort to respond to some of the posts I leave that are positive rather than fixating on negatives all the time.

      And you can stop calling me NPD if you don’t mind.

      It is time to move forward and stop nursing old grudges, my friend. You of all people should be able to show some leadership in that regard if you really are a priest and man of the cloth. So walk the talk man and try acting with more grace and understanding.

      And STOP bringing up the past all the time!

      You have locked us all into a failing formula with constant grousing that is no longer even present. If we can’t move forward then we are just stuck in a rut that you will not allow anyone to break free of and move onward.

      Easter is a special time of year. It signifies rebirth, renewal, forgiveness and second chances. It is a time to mend fences and begin anew.
