J.Johnson’s Latest – These “Resolute Longs” (In Ag) Is The Hidden Issue Here
June 11, 2019

Great and Wonderful Tuesday Morning Folks,

We start our pre-Comex Opening report with Gold continuing to be hit with more short trades with the current price at $1,323.70, down $5.60 and as usual at the low so far at $1,323.60 with the high made before London came in at $1,333.80. Silver is flat, or at the very least, only Sept is trading lower while all the other months are higher with July’s contract at $14.64, up 1/10th of a penny with the low right at the now, at $14.63, with the high at $14.72. The US Dollar is barely moving as well with the trade at 96.775, up 6.4 points and at the high of 97.795 with the low at 97.64. All of this activity was done before 5 am pst, The Comex Open, and the London close.

Our Venezuelan view of Gold under the Bolivar shows another currency attacking real money with its value at 13,220.45, losing another 58.93 Bolivar in the overnight with Silver now pegged at 146.217 dropping another 3.649 in paper value. Argentina’s Peso now has Gold priced at 59,396.27 as another currency is attacking, causing a loss of 233.21 A-Pesos with Silver losing another 2.546 with its price at 656.904 A-Pesos. Even the Turkish Lira is still attacking the real with Gold continuing to lose another 22.14 in Lira value with the price at 7,695.83. Silver under the Lira is pegged at 85.1283, losing .7844 in T-Lira Value.

As mentioned in yesterday’s missive, there were no sales of June Silver or Gold before the early morning report and that continued on all the way thru the end of the Comex trading period with Silver delivery demands now at 3 showing a reduction of one but proving once again, no purchases were done in the Cash markets, which begs another question; if there is no physical trading going on, what is Kitco using to price? Silver’s Overall Open Interest is where our focus has been, (along with the Call options) and for years now, as we see the continuing of a failed strategy moving forward with the Algos adding more short trades with the total count now at 221,880 Overnighters proving an additional 200 more short positions were added during yesterday’s organized attack. AND also proving the Longs are refusing to exit at these prices, even with these added organized price drops. These “Resolute Longs” are the hidden issue here, if they do not exit first, the shorts will have to, and then, fireworks!

Magufuli Takes A Hit At Bureaucracy, Vows To Fix Business Bottlenecks At Meeting With Businessmen
June 7 2019

Dar es Salaam. President John Magufuli has pointed out a number of key issues that are derailing efforts to improve the business environment in Tanzania, and vowed to address the challenges.

The Head of State slammed both state-owned institutions and the business community for creating an unfavorable business climate.

He said the existence of excessively complicated administrative procedures in government was one of the factors that discourage the sustainable growth of business activities.

Magufuli made the remarks while addressing businessmen and women from all districts and regions across the country during a meeting held at the State House on Friday, June 7, 2019.

“The current bureaucracy in the government makes it difficult for the business environment to improve in the country,” said the Head of State.



Tanzania: Magufuli Demotes TRA Commissioner Kichere Amid Apparent Gloom in Business Community
June 8, 2019

Dar es Salaam — President John Magufuli on Saturday June 8 demoted Mr Charles Kichere from the position of Commissioner General of the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) to Njombe Regional Administrative Secretary (RAS).

The new development comes a day after the president held a meeting (Friday June7) at State House, with a cross section of traders drawn from various parts of the country.

Mr Kichere, who was at the meeting found himself in a tight spot as the traders vented their frustration over TRA’s performance. The traders laid their case at the no-holds-barred forum which was held to discuss the business environment.

The hundreds of traders spent more than 10 hours at the State House, pouring their hearts out over the difficulties they were facing doing business.

An unfair taxation regime, harassment by security and regulatory agencies, bureaucracy, corruption dominated cries from the traders, some of whom blamed ministers for letting down the President and complicating the business climate in Tanzania.

Drop Gold and The Myths We’re Told
May 23, 2019

A Naturalist Exposition of Gold’s Manifest Superiority to Bitcoin as Money


The purpose of this paper is to formally address public statements and representations made by Grayscale Investments, LLC (“Grayscale”) and its principal, Barry Silbert, beginning on or about May 1, 2019, through an advertorial campaign entitled: “DropGold,” which was ostensibly designed to educate precious metal investors on the relative advantages of Bitcoin, the digital cryptocurrency invented in 2009, in relation to Gold, the naturally-occurring element (Au) on the periodic table of elements.[1] Before addressing these statements and representations, allow me to begin by sharing with the reader my qualifications in providing this sobering analysis that I hope will sufficiently falsify the core claims made by Grayscale.

Over the past 18 years, I have been a professional investor actively participating in global financial markets. I have managed an investment fund and have founded three publicly traded companies which, together, have created hundreds of millions of dollars in wealth for institutional and retail investors around the world. Over a specific period in my career (2008-2014), I was primarily involved in the extractive industries, investing, owning and exploring for the geological resources in the form of hydrocarbons (Oil, Coal, Natural Gas), base metals (copper, zinc, tin, lead), and precious metals (Gold, silver, platinum, and palladium). The main company and investment vehicle I have been associated with over the recent past is Goldmoney Inc., which owns—an online investment platform that safeguards nearly $2 billion of precious metals in 13 physical vaults around the world for nearly 1.5 million clients.

I have been actively involved with Bitcoin and cryptocurrency since their inception, and I have made my involvement public for at least eight years. I have owned and invested in Bitcoin since at least 2010, own multiple cryptocurrency patents, and have founded “,” which was the first blockchain based cryptocurrency-to-physical-Gold platform to reach any meaningful scale. In 2017, I founded Bitfarms, one of the largest proof-of-work cryptocurrency mining operations in North America, and I remain one of its largest shareholders. I am also one of the founders and the current Chairman of Fortress Technologies, which owns and operates a 2.5MW cryptocurrency mine in Washington state. I am a leader in both the cryptocurrency and precious metal industries, with a long-standing track record of success in both. Given this confluence of experience, I believe I am uniquely positioned to provide a well-reasoned, authoritative counter argument to the debate which has recently ensued as a result of the DropGold campaign.


The Precious Metals Super Sale Continues!!
June 10, 2019

 Great and Wonderful Monday Morning Folks,   

      The game we’re in is all about manipulations. These schemers are here to sway our opinion away from the truths called financial facts by using prices to dictate supply and demand instead of the other way around with August Gold down $16.50 at $1,329.60, and ironically at the absolute low at $1,329 with the high at $1,341.70. Silver is leading the decline with its trade at $14.705, it too right at the low at $14.69 we seem to always get when London is about to leave the trade with the high at $15.01 so far today. The US Dollar is benefiting from this pullback with its trade at 96.835, up 34.5 points and close to its high at 96.88 with the low way down at 96.575. All of these beatings happened before 5 am pst, the Comex open, the London close, and before any physicals have traded.     

      The Venezuelan Bolivar’s value has pushed Gold lower in the early morning trade with the Nobel metal at 13,279.38 Bolivar, losing 98.88 with Silver losing 1.848 at 146.866 Bolivar. Argentina’s Peso now has Gold valued at 59,629.48 losing 507.86 A-Pesos with Silver reaching down to 659.450, losing 9.019 Pesos. Turkey’s Lira now has Gold priced at 7,717.97 it too losing 109.92 in Lira value with Silver losing 1.6678 in value with its price at 85.3439 T-Lira.    

      These prices that have been quoted this morning are the futures prices, not the physical demands. Why? Because so far, since the markets have opened last night at 6 pm est, there have been NO PHYSICALS TRADED AT ALL! No June Gold purchases or sales, and the same goes with Silver, but the prices are lower, because the futures is anticipating what? No sales at these prices? LOLOLOLOL.

Central Banks Set To Flood Market With Cheap Loans As Trade War Threatens To Plunge Global Economy Into Recession

The era of cheap funding is set to return as central banks worldwide cut interest rates to stimulate slowing growth amid an escalating global trade war that could tip the world economy into recession, according to analysts.

The chances of a global recession have risen after the US last month raised tariffs on US$200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25 per cent from 10 per cent while threatening to impose tariffs on another US$300 billion more of Chinese goods. China hit back by raising tariffs on US$60 billion of US products from June 1. It has also cranked up the tension with major trading partners Mexico and India.

Analysts have cut China’s gross domestic product growth forecasts for this year, while the American business community is worried that the US will enter a recession next year, which could drag the global economy with it.

By Greg Hunter’s (Early Sunday Release)

Financial writer and precious metals expert Craig Hemke says the reason you are seeing the wild markets and rising gold prices is all attributed to the Fed. It is in a horrible position. Hemke explains, “I don’t think ‘panicked’ is the right word because that means they are running around with their hair on fire terrified. I think they realize the corner into which they painted themselves. They are trying to mitigate the damage as much as they can. . . . The smartest thing the Fed can do right now at the next Fed meeting (June 18 & 19) is to cut the Fed Funds Rate by 50 basis points. They could at least kind of get the yield curve flat again, and not leave it so it looks like you are definitely headed into a recession. (Fed Head) Powell is not going to do that because it will look like he’s doing what Trump is telling him to do. . . .He’s probably going to cut by a quarter point. . . . There is also a pretty good chance he does nothing. . . . The reason why interest rates all along that curve are going lower and lower is because money all around the world sees we all are headed into a recession.”

Hemke says confidence in central banks is going to crash right along with the global economy. Hemke contends, “Now, this next time when the economy crashes, which it will inevitably will, they’ll be exposed for the charlatans that they are, stringing everybody along, pretending like they’ve got it under control, confidence in the central bank is going to crash. This means confidence in fiat currency is going to crash, and the only real alternative to fiat currency is sound money and that’s gold. That’s the first big part of why it’s different this time. The other big part is just the math. We are up to $22 trillion in debt versus $10 trillion back in 2009. . . . The deficit through 2029 is $1 trillion a year, and that is under a forecast of 3% economic growth. You are not going to get 3% economic growth. When it’s 1% or 0%, then your tax receipts fall dramatically. Then your deficit explodes.”

SOTN: Alternative News, Analysis & Commentary
June 5, 2019











State of the Nation

The preceding screenshot was taken from a class action lawsuit aimed at first slowing down and then vacating the FCC “order and declaratory ruling purporting to streamline the deployment of wireless facilities by pre-empting local government authority”.

It is critical for every U.S. citizen to understand that this illicit and highly consequential order by the FCC is wholly unprecedented.  It is also reckless to the extreme.  Much more significantly, however, this FCC ruling represents a massive and complex criminal conspiracy that will seriously injure the American people.

That the FCC would blatantly attempt to unlawfully arrogate power unto itself to foist 5G on the entire nation represents the height of federal overreach and governmental hubris.  Such an illegal order is clearly a tyrannical move by the U.S. Federal Government to improperly impose the deployment of 5G on every city and county in the 50 states.


Bill Holter’s Commentary

This is also very important.  YouTube, Facebook, Twitter etc. were supposed to be “platforms” much like ATT was for telephone lines.  Instead, these mush for brains, disingenuous liberals, are censoring and silencing conservative and truthful commentary. Do you think the country might be a bit divided?

When Whining Becomes A Weapon: The Latest Youtube Ad-Pocalypse
June 7, 2019

Authored by Tom Luongo,

Google and YouTube’s war on free speech has just escalated again. And it won’t stop, folks. The latest incident involving hard-left Vox writer Carlos Maza whining to YouTube about Steven Crowder making fun of him is not only chilling but pathetic.










Carlos Maza is an activist who makes a living in the public forum. He is openly gay. Uses the twitter handle @gaywonk and regularly spews nothing but thinly-veiled violent rhetoric at anyone slightly to the right of Berthold Brecht.

Crowder’s crime is describing Maza in terms that Maza uses himself but does so derisively. And for that Maza believes Crowder shouldn’t have a platform on which to make a living.

This is now considered harrassment by emotionally-stunted man-babies.

And I’m not talking about Maza, here.

I’m talking about YouTube.

 Tanzanian Gold Announces Further Results From Drilling Below Pit Bottom Highlights Include 63m @ 4.8 g/t Au incl 22m @ 9.3 g/t Au that incl 2m @ 31.1 g/t Au

 June 6, 2019


TORONTO, June 6, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tanzanian Gold Corporation’s, (TSX:TNX) (NYSE American:TRX) (the “Company’s”) Board of Directors is pleased to announce results from the third hole, Hole L19-2, of the Phase II drilling program. The objective of Phase II is to identify gold mineralization in the range of 50 to 200m below the pit bottom of the open pit that is the basis of the 43-101 compliant Prefeasibility Study dated June 26,2018. The two previous drill holes in Phase II are Holes 13-3 and U22-1. All three holes have encountered significant mineralized widths that include notable intersections of high grade.


Notable intercepts in the third hole are:


Hole L19-2


  • 63.0m grading @ 4.8 g/t Au from 357m to 420m; including
    • 1.0m grading @ 7.4 g/t Au starting at 360m,
    • 4.0m grading @ 5.9 g/t Au starting at 369m,
    • 22.0m grading @ 9.3 g/t Au starting at 387m; including
      • 6.0m grading @ 18.9 g/t Au that includes 2.0m grading @ 31.1 g/t Au


The intersections reported here are a down-hole length and may not represent true width but the true width is estimated to be 50 – 60%.


Mr. Jim Sinclair, Chairman (TRX) commented, “ The systematic drilling we are doing below the pit bottom has, to date, yielded exceptionally robust results ” noted Mr. Sinclair ” we will be using these results to help us formulate a Phase III program that will, in part, be directed at  testing what we are calling the Ultra-Deep.”  Mr. Sinclair went on to state that “We will also soon be doing a sophisticated program of down – the – hole geophysics to expand our Resource Geological model and better identify drill targets for Phase III.”

The Next Stage Of The Engineered Global Economic Reset Has Arrived
June 6, 2019

Authored by Brandon Smith via,

When discussing the fact that globalists often deliberately engineer economic crisis events, certain questions inevitably arise. The primary question being “Why would the elites ruin a system that is already working in their favor…?” The answer is in some ways complicated because there are multiple factors that motivate the globalists to do the things they do. However, before we get into explanations we have to understand that this kind of question is rooted in false assumptions, not logic.

The first assumption people make is that that current system is the ideal globalist system – it’s not even close.

When studying globalist literature and white papers, from Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, to H.G. Wells’ book The New World Order and his little known film Things To Come, to Manly P. Hall’s collection of writings titled ‘The All Seeing Eye’, to Carol Quigley’s Tragedy And Hope, to the Club Of Rome documents, to Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Between Two Ages, to former UN Director Robert Muller’s Good Morning World documents, to Henry Kissinger’s Assembly Of A New World Order, to the IMF and UN’s Agenda 2030, to nearly every document on globalization that is published by the Council on Foreign Relations, we see a rather blatant end goal described.
