Could America Survive a Truth Commission?
December 01, 2019
A nation that’s no longer capable of naming names and reporting what actually happened richly deserves an economic and political collapse to match its moral collapse.
You’ve probably heard of the Truth Commissions held in disastrously corrupt and oppressive regimes after the sociopath/kleptocrat Oligarchs are deposed. The goal is not revenge, as well-deserved as that might be; the goal is national reconciliation via the only possible path to healing: name names and tell the plain, unadorned truth, stripped of self-serving artifice, spin, propaganda and PR.
Is such a stripped-of-spin truthful account of names and events even possible in the U.S.? Sadly, there is precious little evidence that a Truth Commission in the U.S. would be anything more than a travesty of a mockery of a sham, a parade of half-truths, misdirections, falsehoods and fabrications, all aimed at one goal: protecting the powerful from the consequences of their decisions and actions.
Sadly, we’ve lost the capacity to simply tell the truth: everything, and I mean everything, is crafted to protect the guilty, polish the putrid decay of legalized looting, defraud the unwary, ease the most venal, power-mad sociopaths into positions of unparalleled power, sell low-quality goods and services nobody needs or would even want if the marketing weren’t so Orwellian, persuade debt-serfs to borrow more and bamboozle voters into further enriching the few at the expense of the many.
J. Johnson’s Latest – My Hope is That This December is the Christmas To Remember for Silver and Gold!
December 3, 2019
Great and Wonderful Tuesday Morning Folks,
Gold is trading higher this morning with February Gold now at $1,476.80, up $7.60 and close to the high of $1,477.10 with the low at $1,465.40. March Silver, the little puppy on a leash, is now trading at $17.07 up 10.4 cents with its high at $17.12 and the low at $17.945. Our US Dollar, the one that kinda lost some support after yesterday’s write-up, is now trading at 97.76, down 3.1 points inside a trading range between 97.88 and 97.685 after yesterday’s 41-point drop. All of this was done before 5 am pst, before the Comex Open, after Trump went to London, and before the London close.
We are seeing nothing but stellar gains under the “emerging markets” currency watch with Venezuela’s Bolivar now pricing Gold at 14,749.54 gaining 124.84 Bolivar overnight with Silver now at 170.487, showing us a “pure” 0.999 Bolivar gain. In Argentina, the Peso now has Gold gauged at 88,368.51, showing a gain of 680.67 A-Pesos with Silver gaining 5.33 Pesos with its price now at 1,021.16 A-Pesos. Over in the lands of Turkey, the Lira now has Gold’s value pegged at 8,469.01 proving a gain of 41.20 T-Lira with Silver now getting 97.9047 T-Lira per ounce providing those that hold a 0.2435 T-Lira gain.
Red Silver’s Delivery Count now stands at 1,465 fully paid for contracts waiting for receipts proving a drop of 959 contracts from yesterday’s count and with today’s price range between $16.985 and $16.81 with the last trade at $16.93. To add to this, we also have a Volume of 106 up on the board so far this morning as we wait to see if our Ag buyer needs more before the end of the year and before another round of China, China, China, hits the Import Tariffs Button again AND after Trump said this; We “Better To Wait (to adjust the tariffs) Until After The Election”. Going back to what the Silver count is saying, 4,795,000 Troy Ounces of Silver where settled out price-wise, as we wait to see how many of these will become EFP’s that will be transferred over to the “City of No Trust” explained by the Harvey Organ Nightly Update Express.
