A Ten Year Deal
So why only 10 years? And once again, for the beyond-my-ability-to-count time, where did all that physical come from. And more than that, how is it that they could accumulate so much silver in the middle of the "silver shortage" you've proclaimed for all those years? How in the world could 670 MILLION ounces be taken out of the physical market without a physical shortage in the middle of a physical shortage? Inq...

Bombs Away!  (6)
You're making the huge assumption that Trump is actually in charge of the bombs, of when and where they're dropped. IMO that's a huge assumption that I at the moment do not believe. He stated that he "authorized" the military to essentially "do their thing." Sounds more to me as though he's saying as much as he can about the fact that our govt is not run by elected officials in just about any way, shape, or fo...

Learning to Prosper in Silver - Jeff Nielson  (6)
Jeff...maybe you can answer this question. Butler never does, and as far as I'm concerned, it's a major failing in his (many) assumptions and hypotheses: Where in the hell_o did JPMorgue get all the physical silver that Butler says they have accumulated?? All I've heard since I started majorly investing in PMs back in the late 90s, is that silver is and has been in a significant deficit situation, mining vs c...

The Deep State, Trump, and JFK  (10)
Too much truth for many. Obviously your first rater is either brainwashed, braindead, or a "familiar" of the Deep State's vampiric empire.

One thing, though, that you forgot to mention about the MIC. You wrote, "The power elites of the Deep State are horrified by Trump’s “mind-our-own-business” foreign policy because they believe that America must use its military and dollar supremacy positions among...

Mad As Hell  (4)
Dear Chris...I agree with most of what you say here. The problem here, and with most writers/analysts in this arena, however, is that you/they simply refuse to speak in anything but (mostly) courteous terms, believing that in this way, courteous "sheeple" will listen/read, understand, agree, and resist, or at least complain a little, those, that is, that aren't fully on the govt dole already and like the status...

Agree. I like Le Pen, in spite some of her socialist leanings. iMO, she's simply being a realist. After all, the world has gone socialist in toto, and it will take something extraordinary to move it back toward anything less centralized (iMO, that something will need to be a total or near-total financial collapse that actually has the blame planted for it squarely and very publicly on those it belongs--the cent...

Indian demonetization effect: 15 tonnes of gold sold on Nov. 8-9  (1)
From reading the comments at the end of the article mentioned above in economictimes.indiatimes, the people who read it, if they actually did, are almost universally brainwashed (those that aren't bankster/govt trolls paid to shill for them) into actually believing that Modi and their central banksters have their good in mind and are simply trying to get the "bad guys." What total bull scheisse!! Or perhaps thi...

Well, Kev, it's most certainly a blessing and a curse of the internet that the ignorant have an equal voice along with those that actually know something. You have no idea with whom you are conversing.

Interesting, Bob. But just wondering why you feel compelled to equate concerns about fluoridation and GMOs with "ozone holes," "global warming," and "climate change." The first two are not only very valid concerns, but their open discussion in the media, scientific investigation and education of the public about the results are OPPOSED by the globalists as these are major intl corporation money-makers for them...

Just have to ask...what's your opinion of what happened at 9:30PM last night (ET) with silver?...took less than 10 minutes in thin trade to smash the price by almost $1.00. Obviously there were lots of stops that were run, but who would you guess set them all off with a vengeance? Just curious

Why Samsung Is Not Buying Silver - REDUX  (1)
Do we know with which industrial giant AG recently made a deal, and are any of the details of that deal public knowledge? KN had made it known a year or more ago that AG was withholding some of its PM from the market b/c of low prices.

So, Keith, why stop there? Give us your knowledgeable predictions for the price action of gold and silver metal over the next 1, 2, 6, 12, 24, 36 months? Since your insinuation is that the PMs are NOT in a "true" bull market, then obviously that would mean it is a FALSE bull market, which means, of course, that the prices should, soon?, when?

Wow, Graham...I was going to kudo you with a 5...until I got to the end and saw your advertising. Are you kidding me?? $273/oz?? I know that just in my sphere of awareness there are dozens (could be hundreds) of deposits being valued for less than $100/oz, many less than $50...some less than $20/oz!! So, I'll give you a "5" for the little article, and a "1" for the ad.
