    Theralase. It’s a tragic shame that a basher on a chat board forces valuable time from an interview with such an exciting company and its CEO. Very happy for all those interviews though. I try to learn from them every time. Most exciting stock I have ever owned. Thanks.

      Big Al says:

      Good morning Ulfie,

      The commenter simply went in an incorrect direction.

      Actually, I thought that the facts that came out in the interview were worth the effort.

      Best to you.

        David says:

        Good update All and Cory. Just points out that the natives get restless when the company goes silent. It is particularly important when certain milestones are put forth and not followed up on either in writing or orally through some form of media. Based on today’s update, stockholders will be looking for an update towards the end of the quarter. Thank Roger for his update and detailed explanation.

    AJ says:

    Garland (a moderate) was also immenently qualified but Republicans even refused to hear hem for close to a year

    Neil Gorsuch Is Supremely Qualified, and Must Not Be Confirmed

    • On February 11, 2017 at 5:48 am,
      Steele says:

      Well, we have this thing called separation of powers with three branches of goverment. When the president nominated Judge Merrick Garland last year, the U.S. had divided government with Democrats controlling the executive branch and Republicans controlling the Senate and congress.

      Unfortunately for Judge Garland, there’s no way in an election year that the Republicans would consider confirmation hearings for a moderate/liberal judge to replace a true constitutional constructionist. No way, Biden Rule or not.

      On what grounds will the Democrats oppose Judge Gorsuch? He has impeccable credentials and cares deeply about properly interpreting the law, not creating it by fiat.

      With Gorsuch’s confirmation, the Supreme Court wold be evenly divided between constitutional conservatives and liberals, with Justice Kennedy being the likely swing vote.


      • On February 11, 2017 at 9:10 am,

      Very thought provoking article.

      I can’t tell you and the rest of the folks who send links in just how valuable they are to me personally as I have many issues demanding my time.

      Thank you all, you are good people.

    • On February 11, 2017 at 10:02 am,
      David says:

      The biggest issue in selecting the next Justice would be their position on Citizens United. If the potential Justice believes that Citizens United should NOT be reversed, then that Justice would be in line with the current “conservative” Justices that voted it in place and other opinions ruling in favor of corporate interests over those of the people. If the new Justice is opposed to Citizens United, then that opinion would allign with the more liberal Justices who lean toward protecting Individual rights as opposed to corporate rights and do not define corporations as people as do the conservative Justices. For some strange reason the people assume the conservative side of the Court protects their rights but never bother to read the kpinios or how the votes were cast.

      • On February 11, 2017 at 7:18 pm,
        GH says:

        Great point, David. Based on my limited knowledge, Citizens United seems like an outrage.

        Is there a good, focused source you can recommend for staying on top of what they’re up to?

      • On February 11, 2017 at 11:31 pm,
        Will says:

        Citizens United was an answer, from the right, to address the unfair political practices of the liberals over many decades. Unions are able to hide behind similar schemes to act as tax free entities and then contribute the monies to corrupt politicians. Repubs simply wanted their own way to do it. Thus we end up with the Citizens United decision. I disagree with both of these practices but the courts have decided to even the political playing field.

    Archdeacon (!) Andrew says:

    Thanks guys. Ref PS 3 as a Brit I remain baffled that George Soros hasn’t been arrested/taken out with his and his sons’ assets frozen. Even in his teens Soros has been an outright psychopath when he first lined his pockets assisting the Nazis by robbing his fellow Jews of their art treasures and gold. Soros is loathed in parts of Europe and most notably in Hungary, while he and his henchmen have been debarred from Russia.

    In seeking to rule the world Soros is hell-bent on destroying it. The fact that so-called anti-fascist lunatics are incoherently brainwashed with the Stockholm syndrome (call it what you will) merely furthers the Soros cause.

    • On February 11, 2017 at 9:20 am,
      Big Al says:

      If you are talking about the Democrats, Jerry, they are loosing big time right now.

      Politive changes in our country like growth will probably bury them for quite some time. But, and I stress, positive changes have to occur. The ball is in our court and we need to score!

      Andrew, a very thought provoking missive from you.

      Where can I find documentation of the actions of Soros regarding robbing his fellow Jews.

      Please help as this is very important to me. Thank you.

        Soros in his own words on a 60 minutes interview.


        • On February 11, 2017 at 11:32 am,
          Big Al says:

          Thanks, CFS, I will watch it right now.

          • On February 11, 2017 at 12:39 pm,
            CFS says:

            You realize, of course, Soros was very young during the Nazi period. Obviously too young to be blamed for anything he did.
            However, I believe his life experiences (and lack of parental guidance) caused him to develop without moral direction. Amoral character.

          • On February 11, 2017 at 3:15 pm,
            GH says:

            I’m not so sure about that CFS. He was fourteen years old. While it’s not clear from his interview what exactly his role was, I believe many fourteen year olds would refuse to betray their own people by collaborating with the enemy.

            His response on this matter, while at first blush fairly reasonable, reveals an abnormal and potentially psychopathic personality. I imagine that is why this interview was suppressed and unavailable online for many years, until recently (according to people whose business it is to track down info like this, like James Corbett.)

          • On February 11, 2017 at 4:03 pm,
            Big Al says:

            I have to say that I do share your thoughts, GH.

            I opinion, regardless of his rationale, is that I believe that he is a dangerous albeit highly financially successful man.

          • On February 11, 2017 at 7:23 pm,
            GH says:

            What I don’t understand, Al, is what motivates people like him. He, Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Bush Sr., Cheney — all these cadaverous old men who just can’t stop meddling, and also can’t seem to move on to their just reward.

            Does he think he is doing good? Is he simply addicted to the game of power? I believe he has basically described himself as a megalomaniac, and at times has felt ‘god-like’ in his abilities or some such nonsense.

          • On February 13, 2017 at 1:33 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Great questions GH. They are in their mid 80’s – why do they even care about meddling?

        • On February 11, 2017 at 12:45 pm,
          Archdeacon (!) Andrew says:

          Thanks CFS. Al, watch 10 minutes into interview….Soros seems to have had no qualms over what he did.

          • On February 11, 2017 at 12:53 pm,
            Big Al says:

            Thanks to CFS for this video which I watched in its entirety. I agree with the following comment from CFS about the impact that his childhood had on how Soros now thinks.

            That; however, does not mmean that the true nature of him does not need to be realized by all.

            Certainly raises interesting questions aobut the concept of a “shadow government”.

    What Voter Fraud? – Mexican Citizen Sentenced To 8 Years In Prison After Illegally Voting In Texas

    Rosa Ortega, a Mexican citizen, has been convicted of voter fraud and sentenced to 8 years in prison in Texas after inadvertently admitting to election officials that she had been voting in Dallas County for years. Apparently the voting fraud was discovered by chance after Ortega tried to register to vote in Tarrant County but was rejected after she admitted that she was not actually a citizen of the United States. While she should have probably just accepted the rejection, Ortega pushed back by arguing that she had already been voting in Dallas County, an argument that drew the attention of investigators.

    Ortega’s voting privileges were approved in Dallas after she falsified her application by claiming to be a citizen. Of course, liberal lawyers, funded by George Soros, have done a masterful job convincing courts around the country that verifying things like a person’s identity and citizenship status prior to allowing them to vote is unconstitutional. Per CBS:


    • On February 11, 2017 at 6:27 am,
      CFS says:

      This case of Maria Ortega is strange. By her own admission she voted 5 times in elections.
      As such at 4 years per felony, she could have gotten 20 years!
      Bought to the US as a child by her mother, but then abandoned, she presumably would have received amnesty under Reagan? If she was legal in the US, it would have been so for more than 20 years, so why did she not apply for US citizenship and obtain dual citizenship? Something here is not quite passing a smell test!

      • On February 11, 2017 at 6:29 am,
        CFS says:

        Oops. Rosa Maria Ortega

      George Soros is an intresting man and certainly needs to be learned more about especially by Big Al who will start that process today.

        Big Al,

        you can start here…Chaffetz Accuses Paid Protesters Of Being “Shipped In” To Cause Chaos At Republican Townhalls

        “You could see it online a couple days before, a concerted effort in part to just cause chaos,” the Utah Republican said Friday. “Democrats are in disbelief that they have nothing but flailing and screaming to deal with this.”

        As KSL adds, the relentless jeering at his and other recent congressional town halls around the country comes as protests continue over Trump’s policies. Those protests include the women’s marches held around the world that drew thousands of demonstrators to the Utah Capitol on the opening day of the 2017 Legislature last month. As reported last month, an Ex-WSJ reporter found George Soros had ties to more than 50 “Partners” of the Women’s March, suggesting that the billionaire Clinton-supporter is the mastermind behind this rising wave of protests.


        • On February 11, 2017 at 4:08 pm,
          Big Al says:

          We will see just how much the election results may dampen his efforts. My opinion: results maybe but effort definitely no at all.

      • On February 11, 2017 at 5:45 pm,
        Bonzo Barzini says:

        Al, is it true that Soros got his start by ratting out fellow Jews to the Nazis in WWII ?

          Stephan B. Feibish says:

          In any case, he was a kid. He did what he was told.

          • On February 12, 2017 at 11:28 am,
            GH says:

            True, and one might forgive him this. The interesting part, however, was his puzzlement over the notion that this experience might have caused him some amount of emotional trauma.

            It was his response to this question, not his collaboration itself, that reveals an abnormal and potentially psychopathic personality.

          • On February 12, 2017 at 2:57 pm,
            Big Al says:

            Stephan, regarding Soros actions as a fourteen year old, you are correct. My point is that I would bet that he has some very deep regrets about his action at the time and that these regrets are influencing his thinking.

            Is he a closet communist, socialist, or just a very hard core Democrat? What do you think?

    With regard to Political Segment 1:
    The ninth Circuit court is a strange Court.
    Populated by predominately by “Left wing nuts” and I do not apologize for calling them such.
    For those cases that are referred up to the Supreme Court no fewer than 83% are modified or reversed by the Supreme Court.
    It is clearly ridiculous that the members of this court should have the power that they have taken for themselves.
    We need a Modification to the Constitution. I would suggest both term limitations and a way by which a Supreme Court decision itself could be over-ridden by Congress or the voting public. This is why a Convention of the States is in process of being generated.
    The writers of the Constitution never envisioned that the Supreme Court would take the power of any final decision, that could read into the Constitution powers that did not exist, or deny factors that were stated in clear English.

    Re: Tax cuts causing increased growth rate:
    It may be hard to prove, but consider the inverse Corollary.

    It has been shown many times in the literature that INCREASING TAXATION REDUCES GROWTH.
    That has happened often enough to be self evident, but if you need literature citations, just ask.

    • On February 11, 2017 at 9:38 am,
      cmc says:

      At least it should be self-evident that cutting corporate taxes can’t hurt as long as the savings find their way into the economy of the nation which cuts those taxes. It should also be self-evident that a corporate tax cut can mean the difference between life and death for struggling businesses.

      • On February 11, 2017 at 9:49 am,
        Big Al says:

        I agree with you on this one, cmc.

    • On February 11, 2017 at 9:48 am,
      Big Al says:

      From a fundamental standpoint, of course, that would make sense, CFS.

      The question that I have is simply “does reducing rates for the top 1% or even the top 5% lead to growth.

      I would like to hear your views on this question.

      • On February 11, 2017 at 10:20 am,
        cmc says:

        Not an answer to your question, Al, but just want to say that a corporate tax cut is not an “1%er” tax cut that ends up in people’s private hands, but in the corporation’s balance sheet.

        If we must have a personal income tax (which I don’t subscribe to) then I have to agree that a cut in that tax should be biased in favor of the little guy in my opinion. The uber-wealthy don’t need anyone’s help and they tend to heavily finance ideological activities because they have done everything and own everything they could want or need, other than power to influence others. The idea then is not to increase economic growth.

        • On February 11, 2017 at 11:11 am,
          Matthew says:

        Suppose the 1% or top 5% are given a tax cut.
        Where do they put the money that is not taken away from them in taxation?
        As one of the top 5%, I can answer for myself.
        That money stays invested.
        Is that better than my selling of stock, giving the money to the Government?
        I guess that depends on one’s belief in the efficiency of Government spending.
        I personally believe most government spending is wasteful, so I am not probably the right person to answer.
        If I had a magic wand then Governments would be reduced by at least 50%.
        Strange as it may seem, in my travels around the world, I have never seen any correlation between government taxation and quality of life.
        People in tax havens, with minimalist government spending seem no more or less happy than those living in highly taxed countries.

        Yes, “a violent increase in the price of Uranium” will likely occur when longer-term contracts start getting negotiated.

        The other thing that has me concerned is Cameco’s risk of the Frozen walls they use when drilling deep in watery areas of the Athabasca having a collapse. If that happened it would be shutter supply there for some time until they could get that resolved, and they are spread thin right now anyway with lower Uranium prices taking their toll on the 2016 revenues, and the recent TEPCO decision to exit the most profitable long-term off-take agreement that they had in place.

        Excelsior says:

        Ouch. Yes, many (including me) had very high hopes for Fission, but they messed up by sneering at the offer from Denison, and the exploration focused Fission shareholders didn’t really understand all the moving parts of Denison – African assets (now spun out to GoviEx), their pipeline of exploration projects, their partial ownership of the mill w/ partner Areva (to process the Cigar Lake ore from Cameco), and their Environmental business.

        When that merger fell apart, Fission doubled down on bad decisions by bringing in the Asian consortium as a minority partner, and making them more undesirable for a merger. I still believe someone will take them out at one point, but it’s become much more complicated.

        In addition, their deposit is underwater, so they have all kinds of water issues to deal with, if they are going to move into production down the road. So, they didn’t get bought out, and have a partial stake in their company form a passive partner that isn’t helping them advance their project, and it is going to take a huge investment of capex to make their project work. They have very high grades, but Nexgen has just overshadowed Fission as the real Exploration standout and the more likely takeover target.

    “In a comprehensive address to the Investing in African Mining Indaba, Friedland used statistics from credible global institutions and well-recorded technological advances to highlight major looming copper shortages, strong upcoming platinum demand for hydrogen fuel cells and the practice of adding zinc to soils to grow food, which promotes good health and renders the metal non-recyclable….”

    Silverdollar, I believe Big Al, was incorrect.
    The “growth of an economy is not easy to measure.
    However, at the current approximate level of taxation, it has been shown that if the tax RATE is reduced, then the tax receipts actually increase. (Commonly known as the Laffer effect or Laffer curve) If one assumes the receipts to be proportional to economic activity, then one could reasonably infer that dropping taxation increases economic growth. (One would expect time lags of course, since economic activity has a response time which is non-zero)

    • On February 11, 2017 at 9:38 am,
      Silverdollar says:

      I believe the Laffer curve is too simplistic when there isn’t any accounting or adjustment for the number of taxpayers being taxed at the rate in question. With most income going to a few as opposed to the broad middle class, we simply don’t have enough taxpayers for the theory to work. I would also point out this statement from Wikipedia: “Generally, economists have found little support for the claim that tax cuts from current rates increase tax revenues or that most taxes are on the side of the Laffer curve where additional cuts could increase government revenue Generally, economists have found little support for the claim that tax cuts from current rates increase tax revenues or that most taxes are on the side of the Laffer curve where additional cuts could increase government revenue”.

      The Greatest Prize In All History – (Again)

      by @Gianni on February 12, 2017

      “The average electric vehicle has 100 kilograms of copper. When a 200 MW wind park is constructed, it requires on average 5 tonnes of copper per MW, whereas conventional power generation – thermal coal, natural gas, nuclear – requires 1 tonne per MW. The average American household has ~400 pounds of copper – that has remained unusually static for decades. So what happens in the house where Musk did his solar roof demonstration. The exact maths have yet to be completed, yet a pencil and paper are not essential for a basic understanding. Between the home, solar roof, batteries and one EV, there would easily be in excess of 1,000 pounds of copper in an energy self-sufficient dwelling.”

    2 Gold Juniors Ripe For Takeovers (Avnel Gold & Eastmain Resources)

    Feb. 10, 2017 – Taylor Dart (7,835 followers on Seeking Alpha)

    “Avnel Gold Mining(AVK) (AVNZF) is a gold explorer that is currently exploring financing opportunities to move its 80% owned Kalana Main project towards production. The project is seated on a 387 square kilometer land package and is fully permitted with the ESIA approval received in 2016.

    Kalana Main currently hosts 3.1 million ounces of gold at an average grade of 4.1 grams per tonne (g/t). This grade may not seem that exceptional at first glance, but it is industry leading when it comes to open-pit mines. To put this grade in perspective, Guyana Goldfields (OTCPK:GUYFF) and Torex Gold (OTCPK:TORXF) both operate open-pit mines and have average grades of 2.94 g/t and 2.62 g/t, respectively.”

    “High grades often accompany low all-in sustaining cash costs, and in this department Avnel is in the top quartile. The optimized feasibility study has outlined the potential for all-in sustaining cash costs of $560/oz for the first five years, and $730/oz for the remainder of the mine life. Compared to the industry’s average all-in sustaining cash costs of $875-$900/oz, these metrics are quite impressive. The feasibility study envisions the potential for annual production of 148,000 ounces for the first five years, with life of mine average production of 101,000 ounces. Mines producing over 100,000 ounces annually are very attractive to mid-tier gold producers,…”

            Morris is usually on track, but like all technicians has had a few detours. (don’t we all)

            I so like his shotgun approach to lining up 3 to 4 data points from chart patterns, to trend lines & moving averages, to volume movement, and of course considering the various indicators. As a bonus he actually “names” many of his charts and it kind of cracks me up. He also used to run his own business (construction I think) so he isn’t a polished Wallstreet stuffed shirt, but rather a successful guy that figured out charting and does a pretty good job conveying complex ideas in a fun way.

    THERALASE: What you’re describing is LIBEL… not SLANDER. Defamation has two varieties. Slander is verbal defamation, very difficult to prove without live witness testimony. Libel is communicated in print/text, easy to prove if you have copies of the document. This defamation regarding TLT’s clinical trials apparently occurred in a blog post or a message board comment, thus it is allegedly libel, NOT slander. The obvious problem here however is that the statement was true (Big Al himself stated as much in his first sentence of this segment.) And truth of the statement is a full and complete defense to any allegation of defamation, whether libelous or slanderous in flavor.

      Empire Strikes Back on Trump-Catherine Austin Fitts

      Investment advisor Catherine Austin Fitts says the oligarch, or establishment class, is on the attack. She calls this latest chapter in the Trump Administration “The Empire Strikes Back.” Fitts explains, “Number one, Trump came into Washington with an agenda that would really make America great again: tax reform, regulatory relief, infrastructure and Obama Care. Immediately, he got bogged down in those for a variety of reasons. If you look at Congress’s constituents, they can’t make money solving those things, particularly if it helps regular people. So, immediately you bog down on those issues. He’s trying to get his cabinet in place. In the meantime, you have the Empire worried about a variety of things. If you want to slow Donald Trump down or make sure the only thing he can get through Congress are things that are good for what I call the “piggies,” . . . the first thing you do is take out their loyal lieutenants. You take them out and try to put space between him and his lieutenants.”

      Fitts, who was an Assistant Secretary of Housing in the first Bush (41) Administration, goes on to say, “The U.S. bureaucracy is huge and very complex, and it’s a matrix structure. The thing you want to do is bollocks him up in the structure. The reason you want to bollocks with a bureaucracy or the courts is then you bring everything into the mud and complicate their lives and make things harder to do. . . . What you are seeing is a war between the ‘piggies’ and ‘Titanic Turners.’ The big question is can Trump learn how to play the game.”

      How does Trump win? Fitts contends, “Trump wins by staying focused on the real issues. The U.S. economy needs a variety of things, including turning the federal budget around. . . . . The reality is the federal budget has a negative return to taxpayers. It’s got to be turned positive. . . . That comes down to tax reform, infrastructure and it comes down to Obama Care. . . . Trump is the Titanic Turner, and he needs to stick to the big issues. . . . He has to make sure the shriek-o- meter does not destroy his top lieutenants and put space between him and them. Otherwise, the pigs are going to step in and run things.”

      In closing, Fitts says, “What’s killing this economy is corruption and lawlessness. That’s what’s killing the economy. We need to deal with these problems.”

    Fed ‘Insider’ Exposes The Evils Of US Monetary Policy Recklessness

    Danielle DiMartino Booth, former analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, has just released the book Fed Up: An Insider’s Take On Why The Federal Reserve Is Bad For America.

    In it, Danielle describes how the Federal Reserve is controlled by 1,000 PhD economists and run by an unelected West Coast radical with no direct business experience. The Fed continues to enable Congress to grow our nation’s ballooning debt and avoid making hard choices, despite the high psychological and monetary costs. And our addiction to the “heroin” of low interest rates is pushing our economy towards yet another collapse.

    This reckless monetary policy pursued by the Fed has resulted in the rich elite becoming markedly richer, while savers and retirees are being absolutely gutted. All while risking a coming conflagration in the bond markets that will destroy a painful percentage of the world’s financial wealth:

    Montana Energy Uncertainty Comes As Large Solar Farm Planned
    Associated Press – Sun Feb 12, 2:29PM CST
    BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Plans for a Billings solar farm are heating up just as renewable energy politics cool at the Montana Legislature.

    The MT Sun solar farm would produce 80 megawatts of electricity, enough energy to power 14,400 homes. It would be Montana’s largest solar project, spanning 480 acres, and the first on public land, the Billings Gazette reports .

    It would cost $90 million to $110 million to build. The state signed a lease with MT Sun last September and expects to begin the environmental work on the project in the coming months.

    It would be built on trust land
