I am with you 150%. If anyone really believes that the USA, Europe, Japan and most of the developed world are not going to pay a huge price for the printing of fiat money – debasing their financial system, they will learn a very bitter lesson. Keep your head and your Gold and Silver…


By Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with wornout tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run –
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!


Dear CIGAs,

Lawrence Welk used to be famous for starting his band with "a one, and a two…" but today’s market action in Gold and Silver was no Waltz by Lawrence and the band.

It WAS a clever ONE-TWO manipulated paper smash, though. Just as ‘orchestrated’ as if it had been played by a band of musicians instead of a band of crooks and robbers.

Starting with the London open, Gold and Silver were heavily sold, then a classic waterfall paper smash was contrived at the COMEX open. Yes, contrived. Today was just another example of blatant, collusive, criminal activity manufactured by the paper bullion Cartel.

I rather expect to see yet another. Call it an early Valentine’s present for Blythe from her flying monkeys!

But ALL the hypothecated and re-hypothecated paper bullion that can be printed cannot fill an empty bullion vault indefinitely, however. Anyone holding good cash bullion will ultimately be OK, but those holding paper bullion will be ‘out of the money’ in a most literal sense.

Who Doesn’t Recognize This Pattern In Gold?

What is happening is in your face regardless of if you agree or not.

Invisible hand keeps pushing the following:

Hit the premarket open, sit back and watch.

Hit the London close, sit back and watch.

If more paper fuel exists and TIME permits, Go to 1.
